Wayanad District

The mountain district of   Wayanad is known for its dense evergreen forests, rich wildlife and tribal habitation. Cradled in the greenery of nature and surrounded by exotic flora and fauna, the place is an enchanting and pristine tourist paradise where one can find pleasure staying in tree top huts, enjoying the cool soothing breeze and listening to the lively chirp of birds.

wayanad

The name Wayanad has been derived from the expression Vayal nadu - the village of paddy fields. The green paradise, forms the border world of the greener part of Kerala. Situated not far from Kozhikode, the city of Zamorins, Wayanad is a world apart from Kerala’s agricultural and industrial epicentres. This mountainous region is a quiet place abounding in scenic beauty, alluring vegetation, wild life and tradition. Clean and pristine, enchanting and hypnotizing, this land has a history and mystery, culture and social epistemology yet to be discovered.

Rain County Resort

Wayanad is located at a distance of about 76 km from the sea shores of Kozhikode in the Western Ghats. Wayanad hills are contiguous to Mudumalai in Tamil Nadu and Bandhipur in Karnataka, thus forming a vast land mass for the wild life to move about in its most natural abode. Wayanad is known for its rich tribal heritage, agricultural wealth, lush green virgin forests, natural sources of water and hill ranges. The least populous of Kerala’s districts, Wayanad is relatively backward and appreciable development is yet to take place in the lives of the fifty odd tribes who comprise a sizeable section of the population and who lead a unique lifestyle. The district, with its rich natural resources, offers excellent scope for adventure tourism.
