The common mistake that tourists make is to think of Wayanad as a single destination –  a town. It is a district in the North-Eastern part of Kerala, with three principal towns – Kalpetta, Sultan Bathery and Manathavadi. Surrounded by dense forest, coffee/tea plantations and mountains, it is a nature lover’s paradise. ‘Maya Kshetra’ -> ‘Mayanad’ -> ‘Wayanad’. Interesting, isn’t it? Wayanad also holds great interest anthropologically with its rich tribal culture as well as pre-historic natural caves. Come, explore this amazing potpourri with F5.
