    Hi ooviya, last summer we went to wayanad.It is a nice place to go.Sure a nice break from chennai life. We took train from chennai , I think mangalore exp and got down at Kozhikode.From there we took car to wayanad.we stayed there in a resort.I forgot its name.but it was a nice place to stay.The food they served was also fantastic.

    Actually wayanad is a district and not a city.All places to see are around wayanad.So only problem is u have to travel a lot to see places around.One beach,two wild life sant, and some more are there.

    We went by Aksaya tours and travels,chennai.The total cost for 2 adults and two kids came around 30,000 rs.This includes train(3 ac),taxi and breakfast,and stay for 3 nights.You can contact them for further details.
    have a nice trip:thumbsup

    as i said wayanad is a district.every place to see in wayand is little far from whichever place we stay.
    it will take atleast 1 hr to reach all places
    main place to see in wayand is a wild life sanctuary.it is the same ,other border of periyar wildlife in ooty.so, for that place only we need tocheck season.because animals move from wayanad to ooty or bandhipoor according to season.

    other places are a waterfalls,a beach and one more island ,with bamboo forest .

    there are nothing much to see in wayanad.main thing about wayanad is its climate.
    dont imagine anything like kodaikanal.in kodai if we take a taxi,we can see all places in one round.this wont happen in wayand.each place is in different direction.all resorts are inside reserve forest.so it will take timeto comeout fromthe resorts to main road even in taxi.but all that are nice exp worth trying.

    and that rain country resorts offer trecking,and somemore also.u contact aksaya travels.they will give u full details,like climate ,places of intrest etc.they arrange everything perfectly,from train tickets,taxifor all days that we stay and accomodation.
    they hav website also.i think aksaya tours and travels india.call them and check for details.

    one more idea from me.Instead of going thro travels,u can contact rain country directly for accomodation and taxi.this will be cheap than going thro travels i hope.rain country's address is available in its website.I hope u find these details useful.check with travels for same tour plan.u can decide accordingly.
