A very well narrated TL here Chetan. This give a great low down on the must do's in Wyanad as we were planning a visit there. Also first was surprised to hear about a beach there but later on found out about it.

The most important thing from your travel that came out rather was what not to do (not prepared for beach etc) so that we can kit out for the various sight seeing options. Also is there anything else that is worth seeing (maybe that you let go) in this area?

@Girish - thanks for your note!
Regarding other places of interest, I suggest you take a look at Kuruva dweep islands which may be a good place to picnic, and you can also try out a couple of waterfalls - the Soochipara (Or Sentinel waterfalls) and the Meenmutty waterfalls. Both the water falls involve a bit of trekking (>1km) and so depending on the group of people you are traveling with, you may take a call. If you are into trekking, I believe the Chembara peak is a wonderful outing. Take a look at this wonderful blog: http://sursandeep.com/blog/2012/06/1...-chembra-peak/

I would also suggest you try the Karapuzha dam or its reservoir. All the above will involve a bit of traveling around - so plan your trip likewise...
