We are planning a trip to wayanad from bangalore from Aug 15 - Aug 18 (approx 3N 3D). I have browsed the net & aggregated some information. We have 1 yr old kid so would be mostly skipping all places requiring trekking.
I need some help on the following matters:
1) Weather: What would be the weather condition during that time (Aug 15-18). Would it be raining badly & many places would be closed?
2) Safari: Are the safaris open again in Tholpetti/Wayanad. I heard they were closed. Which one is best to take. Can we take 1 yr old to day/night safari or both? What is start point for wayanad safari.
3) Homestay with kitchen: Pls suggest a good & budget (<1500) homestay which can allow us to use kitchen for preparing food for the kid.
4) Will kuruva island be open during that time?
I have planned the following. Pls suggest any addition or removal considering the weather & the 1 yr old kid and the duration of trip:
Tholpetti wildlife - near kalpetta/Mananthavady; jeep safari (3pm-5pm) & night safari?
Irupu falls - about 7Km from Kutta; trekking for 15 - 20 minutes to see falls; temple at base
Thirunelly temple - Mananthavady(30km), Kutta (20km); Papanasini stream bath (500m trek);
Pazhassi Park - inside Mananthavady
Pookot lake - boating;
Lakkidi view point - further 5k down pookot lake road;
Banasura Sagar Dam - speed boating; 21 Km away from Kalpetta
Wayanad wild life safari?
Muthanga wildlife - near sulthan bathery
Jain Temple - 1km from Sultan Bathery
Edakkal caves - heavy trekking involved; steep climbs
Soochipara Waterfalls - involves trekking (1km)
Pakshipathala - hardest trekking (7km)
Meenmutty falls - little hard trekking is required
Please also suggest where best to stay to cover both Manathavady & Kalpetta attractionsEdited: 3:52 pm, July 21, 2013
