Trip To Wayanad, Kerala

The name Wayanad derived from ‘Wayalnadu’ means land of paddy fields is a district in the north-east of Kerala state known for its lovely mist clad hill stations and also home to the largest concentration of tribal population in the state. The prehistoric engravings in Eddakal caves bear testimony to a pre-historic culture dating back to the Mesolithic Age.

Strikingly scenic, the rich natural resources of Wayanad offer several opportunities to suit everyone's taste. You can sit back and relax in the beautiful resorts or engage in several adventure activities. Recently Wicked Spoon Confessions took break to experience the awe-inspiring beauty, lush-green landscape and serene environment of this enchanting hill station. Here are our top moments from the trip.
