Trip to Wayanad Me, Wife & one year old kid

Hi all,

Came across this active forum while surfing for Wayanad Travel Plan. I am planning to make a trip to Wayanad on 1st or 2nd weekend of December 2013.

Will need the complete plan with options for places to visit.

My plan would be start from Chennai to Kozhikode or Friday night. Will reach Kozhikode by 7:30 or 8 AM on saturday. With a cab or by bus will reach Wayanad positively by 12 PM.

I came across the following places to visit

1) Chembra Peak

2) Banasura Dam

3) Muthanga WildLife Sanctuary

4) Edakkal Caves

5) Pookode Lake

6) Wayanad Ghat Road view, Lakkidi

7) Kuruva Island

8) Soochipara Waterfalls

We are planning for a 3 days trip. Please advice which of the above places can be prioritized/must watch which can be avoided for travelling with one year old. Considering weather/road/trekking options.

Also will need homestays or hotel which has facility to prepare something for my one year old. Your inputs will be highly appreciated. Thanks, Yuvaraj

Hi

Welcome to Wayanad.

1. Chembra Peak is a full day trekking and with 1 year Kid it will be difficult.

You can make the three day plan as follows:

Day 1 - Banasura Sagar Dam, Pookot Lake, Lakkidi Ghat Section View Point

Day 2 - Muthanga WildLife Sanctuary, Edakkal Caves (1 Km Trekking one way)

Day 3 - Kuruva Island (Closed as of now, likely to open in Nov)

Soochipara Waterfalls (1 Km Trekking one way), you may think of replacing Edakkal Caves.

Regards

Sam

hi

At soochipara waterfalls apart from 1 km walk, you must step down around 150-170 steps one way and climb up while returning
