Wayanad and Nagarhole information

Thank you for the replies to my posting on Itinerary for Kerala. I am almost there with the planning and what we want to see. However, not quite clear yet on the 3 nights approx we have between Mysore and Ooty.

From many other posts I can see that Nagarhole NP is good for wildlife and scenery and relaxing. I am not sure what Wayanad has to offer which is different from Nagarhole.

If we do Nagarhole area (which seems only to offer top dollar accommodation) are there suggestions for less expensive accommodation?

If we decide to do Wayanad too is it better to do Mysore Nagarhole Wayanad Ooty or Mysore Wayanad Nagarhole and then Ooty. We will be travelling by car and driver.

Also if we do Nagarhole does Periyar offer much of the same as we have that on our itinerary too, but maybe if we visit Nagarhole we only stay at Periyar for one night?

all replies welcomed and much appreciated

You can try out accommodation in Kabini which is cheaper than Nagarhole and visit Nagarhole park. Wayanad has tea gardens while Nagarhole is a wildlife sanctuary

It is better to do Mysore Nagarhole Wayanad Ooty. However this depends on your convenience actually and nothing much can be saved here with respect to time

When you go to Periyar or Nagarhole whether you will see the wold animals or not depends on your luck and there is no boating in Nagarhole.

1. Nagarhole is a nice wild life sanctuary. Wayanad has Muthanga WLS and Tholpetty WLS. Apart from that Pookot Lake, Banasura Sagar Dam, Soochipara Waterfalls, Edakkal Caves, Kuruva Island are other major places.

2. I suggest, do 1 Night Madikeri (If you have time), travel Madikeri (Coorg)-Wayanad and enroute you can visit Nagarhole.

3. Ooty is in different direction. You can do Mysore-Madikeri-Nagarhole-Wayanad within the time..

4. Boating in Periyar will be a different experience.

Any other clarification, please let me know
