Wayanad Tourism Places

Hair Pin curves WayanadWhen thinking about tourist places of Wayanad, first of all we will think about the amazing way to Wayanad. Yes I am saying about the way with many hair pin curves. Really the hair pin curves at Thamarassery is the most dangerous beauty of Wayanad. Once you have traveled to Wayand from Calicut, you can never forget the hair pin curves of Wayanad. After passing all curves, you will reach at the top of the world, were you can feel the fresh air, you can touch the cloud. After reaching  at the top station, if you look at west, can see the whole area of Calicut district. Distinct the land ares, water bodies, town area masses, beautiful agricultural lands, beautified paddy fields etc. Dont think these are the main attractions of Wayanad, these are only samples. Some real samples remains in the Gods own country.


Kalpetta is one of the most developed place of Wayanad. Most most important feature of Kalpetta as it is the Head Quarters of Wayanad District. Kalpetta is developed with infra structure and modern facilities apart from other places of Wayanad. Even Kalpetta is almost developed place, it has hilly places and most beautiful locations with it. So when we discus about the tourism places of Wayanad, Kalpetta has its own importance.

During my first visit to Wayanad, I first stayed at Kalpetta before going to see more tourist places of Wayanad. I purchased some spices, good quality garden tea, honey, ginger oil etc from Kalpetta. I still keep the Handi crafts items I purchased from Kalpetta. Latter I used to purchase many items from Kalpetta from my friends as they all were font of them.

I remember about my visit at OISCA Eco Resource center. There I found many medicinal plants protected in the center. The nearby places of OISCA and surrounding agricultural places were very good. I got some corns, guava, different kinds of fruits  cultivated behind the OISCA Centre. I remember the great time I spend at OISCA Eco Resource Center.

I visited the Harrison Tea Estate at Kalpetta. It was an amazing visit. I enjoyed a great time at the scenery of Harrison Tea estate and premises.

Another most attracted place I found in Kalpetta was Soochippara Water falls. 

I am adding a video of Temple located at Kalpetta. This video was uploaded by Sureshkrishnans. Special thanks to Sureshkrishnan.
