Every year, my parents, brother and I take a short break in the month of May/June in the hopes of catching up with each other and satiating our wanderlust at the same time. This time, our busy schedules didn't permit us to get away for more than a weekend. Given the limited time, we decided to discover some place close to Bangalore. Since the last few vacations have all been by the beach, we chose Wayanad - also, making it our first trip to God's own country. We kept the trip short, with just a handful of stops.
We started from Bangalore at 4 am via bus and reached Kalpetta, Wayanad around 10 am. From there it was another 15 minutes in auto to our hotel - Vythiri Greens Resort.
The hotel helped arrange a cab and auto as per our requirements. The hotel staff was friendly and extremely cooperative. They made sure all our requirements were met. The manager went out of his way to arrange for transportation, for us to catch our bus back on time. While the food options are limited at the hotel, there are some good restaurants if you're willing to travel.
