Muthanga Wildlife Safari
We chose this route. After crossing Gundlupet, the flower and vegetable farms on either side of the highway present a pleasing view. The drive on the green canopied road through the beautiful Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary was extremely relaxing. In this route, you enter Wayanad through Sultan Bathery town.

Bangalore or Bengaluru, also known as the Silicon valley of India, will greet you with dreamy weather, Carnatic fusion melodies, a signature breakfast of masala dosa and filter coffee, and notorious traffic. Visit classic attractions such as the Bangalore castle known for its Tudor-style architecture and Tipu Sultan’s summer palace that dates back to the 17th century. To get your art fix, you could head to the fascinating Venkatappa Art Gallery. One of the more popular things to do in Bangalore is to take a walk through the green spaces of the 19th century old Cubbon Park, that were once the reason why Bangalore was known as the Garden City. Bangalore also serves as a comfortable cohabitation of tradition and modernisation that can be seen throughout the places to visit in the city, with throngs of vibrant Kannada temples coexisting with budding start-ups. Travel to Bangalore for the lively cafes, quirky shops and a fascinating contemporary culture. Vidhana Soudha, the Neo-Dravidian granite palace is also must visit places for the architecture aficionados. Tourists can head to the much revered Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR), for authentic south Indian food and Toit’s, the brick-walled microbrewery for a cold beer.
Day 2: We heard the safari in Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary was worth going on. I was skeptical. Yet, we hired an auto to pick us up by 5:30 am and reached the ticket booth just as it opened for the day. Instinct guided me towards the left of the ticket room, which was already full with eager tourists hoping to be on the safari. The morning round of safari sees 40 jeeps go into the forest while the afternoon round sees 15 jeeps go into the forest. We were one of the lucky ones to be allotted a jeep after we agreed to share the ride with another family of 4 members. I much rather prefer exploring a forest on foot or on an elephant. From experience, jeeps safaris are unsuccessful in my opinion. The roar of the jeep is sure to scare away any animal that might have considered venturing into the path. This safari too was turning out to be one of disappointment - we saw some deers, more deers and some more deers! Suddenly, a flash of metallic blue and green caught our eye! A lone peacock had strutted out into the open. This splash of colour against a greenish yellow backdrop brought excitement to the safari. Soon, we also spotted a couple of peahens. These birds alone changed the status of the safari from boring to wow!
