Our next destination was Pookode lake. The beautiful lake nestling amidst rich green flora. There are paddle boats available to explore the lake. We took a stroll on the pavement next to the lake and spotted elephants , monkeys and big wild spider. This place is truly beautiful and relaxing.Later we had dinner from our favorite local restaurant and we took an overnight bus to Bangalore.Wayanad is the place for you, if you are seeking some peace and want to run away from the stressful city life. Certainly, I wish to visit Wayanad again and again.
