Nestled comfortably in the hills of the Western Ghats, Wayanad is a picturesque hill station in Kerala. The wetland gets its name from two local words, “Vayal”, which means rice field and “Naad” “which means” land that is, the land of rice fields.
At the top of the Western Ghats, this popular destination is the only district in Kerala that shares its border with Karnataka and Kerala. It is also the least populated district in the State. This exquisite mountain station is home to many attractions.
About what to visit in Wayanad includes the ancient ruins, mysterious caves, the exotic desert and adventure jungle trails. All these exquisite treasures have become even more attractive with the folklore that surrounds them.
Chembra Peak in Wayanad
Wayanad tourist sites are in abundance, and Chembra Peak is the highest peak in Wayanad making it a perfect trekking destination, surrounded by lush tea plantations. An important fact to note here is that you need permission from the Forestry Office in Meppadi if you want to go to the top.
A heart-shaped lake called Hridayasarasile near the top serves as the perfect point of view. It is said that this lake has never dried up. It offers great views of the entire district and the hills outside Wayanad.
Edakkal Caves in Wayanad
They are two natural caves in the remote location of Edakkal, in Wayanad. It is 1,200 meters above sea level on the Ambukutty Mala mountain. Archaeologists and historians of the world have been constantly attracted to the prehistoric carvings dating back 8000 years that are found on the walls of these caves. This is a difficult hike through the rugged rocky mountains and one of the few tourist spots in Wayanad that is not suitable for children and elderly people.
Meenmutty Waterfalls in Wayanad
The Meenmutty waterfalls are another place to visit in Wayanad, sprouting through the lush vegetation of Wayanad is the view that awaits you in the Neelimala. This is another great place to go trekking with the well-cared coffee plantations on either side of the trail, the ginger patches, and areca nut plantations later on.

Comfortable in its natural environment, the Meenmutty waterfalls are the second largest in Kerala.
Wayanad National Park
The Wildlife Sanctuary is located 18 km east of Sultan Bathery. It actually extends into two regions of Kerala – Cannanore in the north and Calicut in the south. An intrinsic part of the Nilgiri Biosphere, Wayanad the Wildlife Sanctuary joins two other wildlife parks – Nagarhole and Bandipur of Karnataka in the northeast and Mudumalai of Tamil Nadu in the southeast.
The sanctuary was formed in 1973 and has been presented in the framework of the Project of elephants in the year 1991-92. Occupying an area of 345 square kilometers, the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary becomes the second largest in the state of Kerala. The sanctuary is separated into two disconnected parts known as the Wayanad High Way Wildlife Sanctuary (Tholpetty) in the north and the Wayanad Low Way Wildlife Sanctuary (Muthanga) in the south. The area between the two parts was originally a forest region, although it is now occupied by majorly plantations.
The term Wayanad literally means ‘land of the swamps’. A visit to the Sanctuary of the tourists offers an opportunity to witness the efforts made by the management for the conservation of the park’s biological reserve. The scenic beauty and variety of flora and fauna also keep visitors busy and entertained.
