Hi

Welcome to TA and Wayanad.

You can follow Bangalore-Mysore-Gundalpet route. From Gundalpet you can take a right turn. Sulthan Bathery is the nearest town of Wayanad from Gundalpet.

Jun- Aug is Monsoon season. However, even today it was a completely sunny day.

Meenmutty Waterfalls and Kuruva Islands are closed now. Edakkal is closed on Monday. If you have 3 complete day in Wayanad, you would be able to cover all places.

For any other query or clarification feel free to ask.

Regards

Sam

I had been to Wayanad from Bangalore in my own car. I advice you to take different routes to reach and return.

Towards Wayanad --> Bangalore - Mysore - Gundlupet - Sultan Bathery(Wayanad)

Return --> Wayanad(Kalpetta) - Mananthavady - Tholpetty - Nagarhole - Hunsur - Mysore - Bangalore

With the above routes you can cross Wayanad/Bandipur Wildlife sanctuary with a lot of wildlife sightings and while coming back you can cross Nagarhole National park which also offers a lot of wildlife sightings during the drive.

The road conditions inside Wayanad is not great, but its good outside wayanad in both the routes i mentioned. Drive slowly while in the jungle enjoying it.

I have few maps in my blog which could help you too.
