My pleasure, wmanu. My next target will be your Ooty thread, as Ooty and Coonoor were the second leg of our honeymoon, and I have some wonderful pics of the places.

Food and service is quite good. All meals are buffet. Except bed tea/coffee, nothing is served in the cottages. You have to go to the restaurant.

Another problem we faced was that most waiters only spoke Malayalam and very limited English. So communication had to involve a lot of hand gestures and careful English.

Thank you.

You're right, the place is great for a weekend trip. However, personally I feel the rates are too high. For a honeymoon one still doesn't mind paying that much, for a weekend trip I'd find it too expensive.

Hi Samish,

Sorry for the late reply. I'm sadly not the best person to be asking this question. Have gone to Wayanad just once, and not many people in my circle (other than tbhpians) who have much info on the place. Maybe Wmanu or one of the Bangalore/Kerala guys should answer this one.

However, can give you some tips. The first time I read about Wayanad, it was in a magazine travelogue, and the reporter had gone in peak monsoon. He put up beautiful pics, of a lush green place with pleasant weather. I still remember his funny comment "Kerala in monsoon is greener than a frog covered with algae"

I (we) went in December 08. The weather was just a little chill in the air. The jungles were green enough, though not as lush (or wet) as monsoons. It was nice weather to trek around.

So take your pick, monsoons or winter.

Try avoiding monsoon, in Waynad you need to travel around 30km from one attraction to another and travelling during monsoon will be little difficult considering the road conditions. And of course, if you are planning for a jungle safari, monsoon is not the right time. I would prefer winter to visit any place in Kerala.

Samish - If its your first trip and sightseeing is on cards, rains are not the best time to visit Wayanad. If you are looking out for a relaxed time with family in the comfort of a resort go during the rains; forest will be at its greenest and Kabini will be at full glory.
