Being a local travel agent & tour operator and a destination expert (designated by TripAdvisor) for Wayanad, we would like to tell more about Wayanad. This district was formed on 01 Nov 1980 in the northern part of Kerala. It came into being by merging North Wayanad, which was a part of Cannanore district and South Wayanad, a part of Calicut district. Wayanad, the name is believed to be originated from ‘Vayal nadu’, which means ‘Paddy Fields’, Wayanad being plentiful with paddy fields then. Wayanad as a hill station abundant in greenery and joins the border of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu state. It is one of the non commercialized Tourist destinations of Kerala, rich in coffee, tea and pepper plantations. Wayanad is also rich in wildlife and is at an altitude of 700-2100 meters above MSL. The district HQ of Wayanad District is Kalpetta. Major towns of Wayanad are Sulthan Bathery, Kalpetta and Mananthavady.
Wayanad is the land of hills and spices, where nature’s beauty still remains untouched by the modernization. The gushing streams and rivers, the deep dense forests, the amazing wild life experience all adds to the beauty of the region. With a good count of sanctuaries in and around the region, Wayanad is an amazing adventurous tourist spot that captures every tourist. Named as the ‘Green Paradise’, this northern district of Kerala is unique since nature itself plays the role of an entertainer, amuser and captivator. Blessed with biodiversity, this land of mighty sky high mountains is an abode and sanctum for varied endangered and ferocious species of animals. The spice plantations not just capture the sight but fill the air with their aromatic essence. Being one of the few districts in Kerala where nature is still found intact, it abodes some of the oldest tribes, caves that reflect some prehistoric engravings dating back to the Mesolithic age.
