What you should know
The only way to get to the meeting point is by private hire. From Calicut Airport (CCJ), take a private hire which would cost USD35-45 and you would arrive after 1 hour 25 minutes.
It is possible to go without a guide but the guide is an expert bike guide who will ensure your safety on the road and be there to provide first aid if needed.
As long as you are able to cycle, you should be good to go! Be sure to inform the guides on your level of experience and fitness so that they can pick a trail that is safe and fun for the entire group.
It is possible to visit all year round as Wayanad experiences a comfortable climate throughout the year. But during the wet season (June through September), do expect leeches.
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.
