My friends always told me a road trip through god's own country is a must do. Kerala land of hill stations, great beaches, great food and warm people.
So a friend of mine and I decided to drive through Kerala to experience the same. And we thought the best time to do this was during the Christmas celebrations.
Bangalore - Wayanad - Alleppey - Munnar - Bangalore
( And squeeze in any place if possible)
We started off from Bangalore at 5am. Wayanad is around 290km from Bangalore, which is a 7 hour drive with a breakfast stop and small breaks.
Breakfast: Swad, The Atrium boutique Hotel, Mysore
Buffet Breakfast : ₹ 160
Worth the money: 👍
We reached Wayanad in good time. Our first place on the list was Edakkal Caves. We drove directly to Edakkal Caves as it was on the way to our hotel booking.
Famous for: Prehistoric Carvings
Accessibility : Around a 2km walk from parking spot.
My Honest Review: Yes, it is prehistoric and everything. But visit only if you truly appreciate the carvings. It is a small place crowded with too many people at once. The joy of a small hike to the place which was there a few years ago has been taken away by the stairs which make the place more accessible. You do have small snack stores on the way to the place.
Entry fee: ₹30 per adult
Plastic water bottle deposit : ₹50 (refundable)
