Wayanadu Trip(Part One)

We had a very nice weekend at Wayanadu(Kerala).It was a long weekend and so we have planned for Hill station trip.Finally we had chosen Wayanadu.There was a big dilemma in choosing the route to reach Wayanadu from Chennai.The shortest path to reach Wayanadu from chennai  is via Mysore.But we thought we need to pay for two state permits(Kerala & Karanataka).So we have chosen the following route.



Kalpetta(Wayanadu District)

We thought it was also somewhat same distance as Mysore route.But it took around 20 hours(900 Kms) to reach Kalpetta(Wayanadu).In this route roads are superb but the distance is too much.If you are great lover of nature then you will definitely enjoy the sight seeing.I enjoyed a lot.IMG_0709We stayed there at Muthunga Wild life Sanctuary.It was a nice cottage(MyKara Home) which resides inside the Muthunga Forest.IMG_0915

As this cottage resides inside the forest ,you can't find any shops near this cottage. So you have to take your food in the cottage.But you can get some good foods in the cottage itself.

You can find lot of dears roaming near this cottage.If you have luck you can find Tiger also :-).

After reaching there we went to few places like Muthunga Wild Life Sanctuary,Edakkal Caves,Kuruva Island etc.,

I will continue rest of the things in part 2.

Hi! I know this post was a while ago - so apologies for re-kindling it. We are heading to Mykara this weekend and we just can't seem to find their contact number. Can you kindly help me out regarding this?
