Wayanad Mountain Hike

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 will ensure your safety and that you do not get lost as you climb the mountain. The well informed and articulate guides will also share stories with you about the flora, fauna and people along the trail.
As the hike duration is 7.5 hours, it can be physically taxing. One should be physically fit enough for the journey.
It is possible to visit all year round as Wayanad experiences a comfortable climate throughout the year. But during the wet season, 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! For the culture vultures, Thirunelli Temple is worth a visit as well.
