Can’t control my adrenaline rush once Long weekend is around the corner and this time my drive was to GOD’S OWN COUNTRY WAYANAD, KERALA. It was a 3 days trip covering some odd 1100kms.
Avoiding the regular route from Bangalore we went via NAGARHOLE NATIONAL PARK, Nalkeri Forest. As heard the forest was dense, exquisite, jam-packed with greenery & wild-life and to our surprise negligible traffic. With a long walk n few climbing of stairways EDAKKAL CAVES was the first place to visit. Then moved ahead to KALPETTA and called off d day as it grew dark.
2nd day visiting PHANTOM ROCK we headed for NEELIMALA VIEWPOINT. The 4X4 ferocious muddy off-road uphill drive to the view point is not for weak hearts but it was the superlative adventurous part of our trip. The beautiful MEENMUTTY FALLS can be viewed from the hill top. Moving ahead till the edge of the hill was spine-tingling to see Mother Nature in her ravishing attire. The view from there was hypnotising and we were above the clouds without an Air-plane. The next points was less known but beautiful KANTHAPARA WATERFALLS, Meppadi and then visited the spectacular SOOCHIPARA WATERFALLS. Last part of the day was Ghats section sun set view form LAKKIDI VIEW POINT.
Day 3 was started by visiting BANASURA SAGAR DAM and thereafter with a thrilling ghat section drive traveled to splashy THUSHARAGIRI WATERFALL, in Kozhikode district which was our last point. Finally bidding adieu to picturesque WAYANAD we drive back to Bangalore through BERAMBADI STATE FOREST & witnessing a bunch of wild Tuskers was like dessert after a heavy meal.
