You can never run out of 'Places to Visit' around Bangalore. Bangalore is surrounded by beaches, mountains, waterfalls, lakes.... Above all we Bengalureans have 'God's Own Country', which is just a night's journey away from Bangalore. What can be better than that?
On one of those days when I wasn't travelling, I planned my next trip and I decided to visit Wayanad and Kozhikode over a weekend.
I left Bangalore on July 19th, Friday night and reached Wayanad around 4:30/5:00 AM. I got down at Kalpetta and took a rick to my hostel — Zostel.
Pro Tip: Instead of taking a rick from Kalpetta to Meppadi, Zostel you could hop onto a bus from Kalpetta to Meppadi and from there take a rick to Zostel (incase you plan to stay at Zostel). It's more economical.
Zostel Wayanad is situated on Chembra Peak, which makes it a perfect place to stay when at Wayanad. And if you are a solo traveler/backpacker, then Zostel is your BFF.
I had three days in Kerala, so I decided to split it up.
I had my first butter tea here. I didn't feel like leaving this place. So... all the chai lovers, this is a must visit.
