Wayanad is a famous hill resort in North Kerala. Wayanad is the name of a district. There are many famous travel spots in Wayanad. Wayanad is known for its spices, waterfalls and Wildlife.
As born in Wayanad, I discovered most of all attractions in my journey of my life. Still I think missing more things or to have a re visit. This list is hot spots inside our District.
This is the list of places to visit for an average Man. I given my marks according to my observations and importance.
CURRENT ROAD CONDITION - BANGLORE TO WAYANAD?
We r planning to wayanad for 2 days on may 1st n 2nd.
1. Is this the right time to visit it??
2.We will be leaving to wayanad from banglore in our own vehicle. How about the road conditions? Which route will be the better one?
4.Are there any places that we could visit on the way?
There is no bad time to visit Wayanad. If you love greenery and lush vegetation visit in between May to December. Monsoon itself gives an enjoyable stay and rain tourism is promoted from June 1 to Sep 30. June is very good where other parts of country is burned with heat, wayanad offers cool rain and mist. but Wild life sightings may reduced because all the animals have gone inside park as they get enough food and water.
December has and January are coolest nights and warm days with full swings in tourist activities.
February and march is little hotter compared to other districts in Kerala, but still less than 3-4 degrees. Chance of wildlife sightings are in its peak. family goers can avoid this moths as numerous school and college children flows to tourist spots as a part of their excursion programs, making overcrowded weekends. but still if you choose a resort or home stay, this moths are awesome.
April is little hot, and expect sudden rain in the late afternoon.
May is refreshed with early rain, fantastic beauty of rejuvenated earth and climate. calm environments.
Summer lasts from from mid-February to mid-May. The tropical sun is really hot and temperatures can go up to 35°C in the afternoons.
The monsoon is in place from mid-May until early September. The North-East Monsoon winds bring heavy showers.
Mid-October to early February can be termed a mild winter in the hilly areas, which can get cool and misty. The weather, however, remains hot and tropical on lower ground. Heavy rains occur from the last week of September until until early November, due to the retreat of the South-East monsoon.
When in Wayanad, carry an umbrella no matter what time of the year it is. You can be caught in a sudden shower in summer, or can be used for sun. Beware the Kerala sun coupled with high rate of humidity can be unforgiving in the summer months.
The temperature averages around:
22°C - 34°C daytime, 22°C - 26°C at night in summer seasons of March, April
20°C - 28°C daytime, 18°C - 25°C at night for the rest of the year
Temperatures may drop down to 10°C or sometimes even little below during Winter seasons (November, December) in Hilly areas of Western ghats, especially at popular hill-stations, which results a misty days and freezing nights coupled with light cold showers.
The best road is from Bangalore is Mysore- Gundulpet-Kalpetta. The Highway will close at 9.pm to 6.am, plan your journey according to that . 24 hr route is open through Mysore- Kutta-Tholpetty -Mananthavady. Best road I felt is Mysore-HD Kote Handpost-Kabini- Bavali- Mananthavady. Excellent tarmac, beautiful sights and full of wildlife. Mysore-Hunsur- Nagarhole- Kutta has same story. both roads are closed in between 6 pm to 6 am.
If you own a car, better to enter from one of the road and exit via any of the other, thus Wayanad can be covered in a round trip. Kilometers are almost same,and worth for the sights.
