I live 5 hours away from Kozhikode (Calicut). If it is around Kozhikode (like Wayanad), even I might make it with family, provided this is a family affair and dates work out.

Wow!! That is really nice.
I think if everybody is inclined towards Wynad, then we should seriously consider it as an option.
Will talk to some and confirm about it soon.

Thanks to all for showing interest. You are all welcome to come and it will be our pleasure to meet you all.

Please consider this as a family affair. You can come alone, with family, with friends, with wife(s) or girlfriend(s).

I ran into lot of problems last time with the bookings for our Rumble in the jungle trip. I don't want to repeat it again.
So whoever is coming, please confirm here by May 31st. Yes, please consider it as a deadline. (That's yet another 20 good days away).
Sorry for this.

How are these resorts priced? I stayed in green magic last year, my travelogue from top of tree is from there. But that's like 8K per room.

No need to be sorry about it - I suggest you collect $$$ upfront too.

I would suggest Tranquil, but its priced bloody high. Zakkie can you check with the other resorts?

I have spoken to some resorts and I'm currently working to find the best deals from them.

I heard There're some forest lodges in that area. What about trying those?

Is there any campsites around there? Those will be fun and adventurous too. Ain't it?

Will definitely try and make this in a weekend when everyone's free and able to make it.
Please do me a favour, whoever is interested in coming, please PM me your convenient date and if possible, your contact number. Will make things very easy to coordinate.

Thanks.

Zak, I'll be in wayanad on the 24th of May. I can go down to the resorts and maybe fix up things if you want me to. But I speak very little malayalam, could get us all kicked out for that
