Wayanad is the green paradise - the border world of the greener part of Kerala.Situated not far from Calicut or the city of Zamorins, Wayanad is a world apart from Keralas agricultural and industrial epicentres. It is a quiet place where scenic beauty, wild life and tradition matter, simplicity is a virtue and beauty still blossoms from the mountainous horizon and from the green glaze of alluring vegetation. Clean and pristine, enchanting and hypnotizing, this land has a history and mystery, culture and social epistemology yet to be discovered. Located at a distance about 76 km from the sea shores of Calicut in the Western Ghats, this station is full of plantations, forests and wildlife. Wayanad hills are contiguous to Mudumalai in Tamil Nadu and Bandhipur in Karnataka, thus forming a vast land mass for the wild life to move about in its most natural abode.
Wayanad is known for its rich tribal heritage,agricultural prosperity,lush green virgin forests,natural sources of water and hill ranges besides its legendary tales of valour and courage .It has abundant natural resources that include exotic species of plants and wild animals.Wayanad is a delight and a must-see destination for every tourist and visitor to Gods own country.The least populous of Kerala’s districts, Wayanad is relatively backward and development has not appreciably improved the lives of the tribes who comprise a sizeable section of the population.
Wayanad is situated in an elevated picturesque mountainous plateau in the Western Ghats. The vast stretches of mist - capped mountains, green meadows of valleys, white water springs, blue water lakes and wild forests express the splendid natural beauty of Wayanad.Its pretty image not withstanding, perhaps what the visitor finds most endearing about this quaint little hill station is its large tribal population of about fifty-strong tribes and their fascinating lifestyle.
