The main reason that majority of tourists consider Wayanad as the best tourist place is its natural beauty and greenery. In this fast and furious world, everyone loves a calm and peaceful atmosphere. Thus people select place like Wayanad.
Wayanad is actually a high range area with 9 churam’ s(hairpin bends).It has some of the most interesting tourist attractions from historically inclined to architecturally marvellous ones. Some of the prime attraction of Wayanad are Kuruva island, Pazhassi Raja Tomb, Kabani river, Neelimala viewpoint, Meenmutty falls, Soochippara falls, Lakkidi viewpoint, Banasura hill, Edakkal caves, Banasura Sagar dam, Pookode lake, Ambalavayal etc. Kabani River is one of the 3 famous rivers in Kerala that flows towards east. It is the main water body in Wayanad.
The majority portion of the district is the forest. Elephants, Leopards, Deer’s etc many animals and birds are the inhabitants of the forest. Tribals are seen on the outskirts of these forests. They are actually the owners of the Wayanad. Monkeys are the main attraction of the tourists and are seen everywhere. The groups of tribals remember us about Pazhassi Raja, kurichyas etc. Tribals are the key to open many mysterious things regarding forest. Thus they are not found to outside world only confined to the forest itself.
Forest honey is very famous for curing many diseases and also many other herbs and rare medicinal plants are found in the Wayanadan forest. The tea leaves plantation and coffee are the main crops of the villager ’s.Spices like pepper, cardamom, ginger etc are grown widely in Wayanad. Handicraft, architecture made up of bamboos and other materials are very common in the art galleries. These all thing attract tourist to Wayanad.
I personally feel the most wonderful place is kuruva island. It is tourist spot with many rivers, trees animals boating etc. There are many small streams with rocks that we can walk through it. It is really a great experience. Each and every place in Wayanad is filled with the beauty of nature. The calm and fresh atmosphere of Wayanad invites and attracts all to her lap.
