Wayanad Tourism

When the state of Kerala was formed in 1956, Wayanad was part of Kannur district. Later south Wayanad was added to Kozhikode district and on November 1, 1980, north and south Wayanad joined together to form the present Wayanad district.

Mountain district
This mountain district is in many ways the most picturesque in the state, with its rolling hills covered with tropical rainforest. Wayanad also contributes richly to its fortunes, thanks to the flourishing cultivation of many spices, as well as tea, coffee and cocoa .

Wayanad is situated at a height of 700 to 2100m above sea level and is home to many species of animal and plant life. Temperatures range from 12 to 25 degrees centigrade. This district also has the added advantage of linking Kerala with the golden triangle of south : Bangalore , Mysore and Ooty.
The name Wayanad has been derived from the expression 'Vayal nadu' - the village of paddy fields.

Green paradise
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. This is Wayanad - the green paradise - the border world of the greener part of Kerala. 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 of 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 Bandipur in Karnataka, thus forming a vast land mass for the wild life to move about in its most natural abode.
