‘The land of paddy fields’, Wayanad is an exotic landscape replete with lush paddy fields, spice plantations, cascading waterfalls, historical caves, comfortable resorts and luxurious homestays. One of the major Wayanad attractions is the Eddakal Caves. According to legend, Lord Rama (of the Hindu epic Ramayana) had released an arrow from his bow, which struck this rock surface, creating the fissure. The caves are home to fascinating carvings – some as old as 7000 years – representing human figures, animals, plants, tools and weapons. Home to a boastful variety of flora and fauna, the Wayanad wildlife reserve is an integral part of the Nilgiri biosphere reserve peacefully located amidst the serene hills of Western Ghats. Walking through the sprawling spice plantations, trekking to the pre-historic caves and experiencing a resort holiday are one of the many things you can do to get a taste of Wayanad. The highest point in Wayanad, the Lakkidi Point is an ethereal locale that offers a panoramic picturesque view of the surrounding cliffs, valleys and luxuriant vegetation. The rugged terrain of the charming Chembra Peak is covered with lush green grasses and meadows. The peak offers a bird’s eye view of the neighbouring districts of Kozhikode, Malappuram, and Nilgiri. Right at the middle of the wood is the heart-shaped lake – ‘Hridaya Saras’, making it another heartwarming destination in Wayanad. Snuggled in the Banasura hills is the picturesque Banasura Sagar dam. The reservoir is the largest earthen dam in the country and the second-largest in Asia. The mesmerising sight of the Banasura Lake amid hilly peaks, exotic flora and fauna and enchanting cascades is one to behold. Wafting the aroma of coffee is the charming town of Kalapetta, abound in nature’s bounty. Wayanad is also dotted with enchanting cascades nestled in the lap of dense forests – the Soochipara Waterfall, the Kanthanpara Waterfall and the Meenmurthy Waterfall are picturesque locales bestowed with natural beauty. Phantom Rock (Cheengeri Mala) is an archaeological wonder that can be hardly spotted anywhere else in the world. The rock is naturally casted in the shape of the phantom skull and stands tall at an elevation of 2600 m above sea level. A must-do in wayanad is the Spice Tour through the aromatic stretches of cardamom, cinnamon, pepper, ginger and vanilla plantations. Adventure enthusiast can seek their thrill in adrenaline-pumping activities like camping, river crossing, jumping, commando walking, zip line, and mountain biking.
