Update : Did Bangalore <-> Wayanad(Nice road->Mysore exit->Mysore bypass->Bandipur->Kalpetta->Likkidi) over last weekend(15th-18th June,2019). Absolutely wonderful roads. No issues with low slung cars as well, mine was a Jazz with full load of 5 adults+boot full of luggage. Although within Kerala its all 2 way traffic, folks are fairly disciplined and road quality is pot-hole free mostly. Be cautious of the interceptors, cops all around with speed-gun on-board their vehicles. Nobody bothered us though as I preferred staying within 60kmph and enjoying the green fiesta.

Banasura Sagar dam has a little less water as of now but will be full in next couple of months as the monsoons complete their innings. Its a huge dam and a speed boat ride in it is fun.

Kanthanpara Waterfalls is another lovely spot if you wanna take shower. But one needs to be a little careful with the steps which are muddy & slippery if it rains while you visit.

Pookode lake. Good for paddle boating/kayaking.

Edakkal caves : Not recommended for senior citizens or heart patients. Its a kilometer worth hiking followed by 300 steep steel steps. Pretty tiring but the view from top is nice, though the cave is nothing special as such.

This is the best thing about the trip. Plush green Tea estates all around.

Stayed in Upavan resort, Likkidi. Nice little resort surrounded by green forest cover with spacious rooms, good food & decent facilities for that perfect family vacation.

Only issue faced was, few of the tourist places were closed like Soochipara waterfall et al. Rest its an amazing gateway for people looking for a break from the hustle-bustle of city. A big shout out to the folks out there in Wayanad for maintaining cleanliness.
