Wayanad District, Sultan Battery
What kind of people were our ancestors? What kind of lives did they lead? Often, the paths leading to the answers to these questions are as fascinating as the answers themselves. If you would like to walk a little way along one such wonderful path of discovery, one good place to visit would be the Edakkal caves in the Ambukuthi Hills in North Kerala, considered to be one of the earliest centres of human habitation. Inside the cave you will find ancient stone scripts, pictorial wall inscriptions of human and animal figures with peculiar headdresses, the swastik form, symbols and cave drawings of human figures, wheels, bows, knives, trees and so on. Getting there: Nearest railway station: Kozhikode, about 97 km from Sultan Bathery Nearest airport: Calicut International Airport about 23 km from Kozhikode

Weekend Getaways from Nilgiris 

Best time to visit - January,February,March,April,May,June,October,November,December
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.


About Nilgiris

Now coming to the bear mountain - the owner couple let me know that the mountain exactly opposite to the guesthouse is called the bear mountain. Quite literally, it has had and might still have bears residing on it. My cute binoculars did the rest ( curiously searching for one). To some luck, I did manage to spot a herd of bisons. I wonder why people don't carry binoculars (instead of or alongside a DSLR !) I could not see any bear on this visit but the stories that I got to know and the beauty of this place which I got to behold will remain etched in my mind for quite some time. The resort is pretty awesome, resides in the Nilgiris and bears the name - 42 Green Pastures!Till I get surprised again ! Cya
