It is possible to visit all year round as Wayanad experiences a comfortable climate throughout the year.
One of the best things to do in Wayanad is to visit the famous Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary or Banasura Sagar Dam, Asia's 2nd largest dam! Surrounded by hills, the reservoir is dotted with small islands. Nearby, a jungle trek leads to the powerful Meenmutty Waterfalls, where water cascades over 3 steep tiers of rock.
For the culture vultures, Thirunelli Temple is worth a visit as well. Wayanad is also known for its trekking routes. The trail to its highest peak, Chembra, passes a heart-shaped lake en route to the summit.
