Day 2

Day 2

It was the second day of our journey and the first stop was Edakkal caves.

Edakkal Caves is a declared UNESCO world heritage site.

Edakkal caves is known for it's Stone age carving.

The journey to Edakkal caves is a mini trek. However the route is a very steep one with lot of stairs hence it's not advisable for elderly people and people who are not in good health. The trek to the cave is around 30-45 mins. Staying hydrated is essential.

Apart from Edakkal caves there are plenty of sites that are epitome of exquisiteness in and around Wayanad.

One such is Chembra peak. Chembra peak is the highest in Western Ghats and it has got a lake which is heart shaped. But due to some improvements being made, the peak is closed for trekking.

Another such point of attraction is Banasura Sagar dam. Since we were out of time we couldn't visit it.

Wayanad wild life sanctuary is a must visit if you are a wildlife enthusiast.

Evening drive through bandipur forest offers you an enthralling experience. En route if you are lucky you can spot elephants, wild boar, deers and if very lucky tigers too.

We just spotted elephants and deers.

There are even Safari rides available which will take you through dense forests.

The drive will be a scenic one and you'll be thrilled to see what the nature has got to offer.
