Arrive Wayanad bus station and our cab would recieve you from there. You would be transferred to hotel and checkin to standard room of your hotel by 12 p.m.
After freshening up take your time to lunch from some of the best restaurants around. Wayanad has a unique way of preparing meat dishes and you may not want to miss it if you are a non-vegetarian.
Post lunch leave for Banasura Sagar Dam, the largest earth dam in India and the second largest of its kind in Asia. The dam is made up of massive stacks of stones and boulders. The Banasura hills on the backdrop and the massive amount of water stored in dam gives a picturesque view of the place. The tourism department conducts speed boat ride in these waters and gives you an adrenaline rush.
Return to your hotel by evening and treat yourself to a delicious dinner.
Wake up to a misty morning and enjoy a cup of coffee. Start early after breakfast as today you push your boundaries till the Karnataka borders.
The first halt for today would be Kuruvadweep, a 950 acre protected river delta. This dense and evergreen forest is uninhabited and hence a home to rare kinds of flora and fauna. The island is surrounded by streams and rivers and is accessible by rafts or fibre boats run by Kerala Tourism Department. Once inside the island you can go for a nature walk.
Next you would proceed towards Thirunelli temple, undisputedly one of the most ancient temples in India. Thirunelli was once an important town and pilgrim center in the middle of inaccessible jungle valley surrounded on four sides by mountains. Papanasini is a holy mountain stream accessible around 1 km northwest of the temple premises. One dip in the cold Papanasini waters is reputed to wash away all sins committed in a lifetime.
After lunch you travel towards Tholpetty Wildlife Sanctuary, where wildlife jeep safari at the sanctuary offers splendid opportunities to spot various animal and bird species in their natural habitat. The Sanctuary opens at 3:00 p.m. There is a lake within the sanctuary where animals come to quench their thirst in summer. The chances of sighting would be difficult during rainy season.
If time permits you will be taken for a cruise along the Mysore road where the chances for wildlife sighting is prominent.
Retire for the day and relax at the comforts of your hotel.
If you still want more activities, Wayanad has enough of it in store. Today you will be going to push your body to its limits. Check out of hotel as today is your last day in Wayanad.
Proceed towards Edakkal caves which is a fissure in the rocks that had been created due to natural causes/ changing climatic conditions. Thats not all, it also holds historic importance due to the various etchings and prehistoric line drawings and the nature of representations on the cave walls. You have to trek up the hill for nearly 45 minutes to reach the caves. But once you are there you would never regret the effort.
Finally you would be taken to Soochipara waterfalls which is a three tiered waterfall. The way to the waterfalls is full of winding roads through the tea estates. Once you reach the top entrance, you will need to walk down the hill to reach the bottom point of the falls.
It had been a tough day and you will be dropped off at Wayanad bus station for departure.
Bid goodbye to the thrills of Wayanad and be assured that you would want to return for more.
