After Winning the #IndiaOffBeat Challenge with HolidayIQ and Olacabs. I got an sponsored trip to the explore the beauty of South India for 4 days. Visiting Ooty in Tamil Nadu and then Wayanad in Kerala.
This playlist is on our 3 days trip to Wayanad in Kerala.
About Wayanad - Wayanad District in the north-east of Kerala, India, was formed on 1 November 1980 as the 12th district by carving out areas from Kozhikode and Kannur districts. Kalpetta is the district headquarters as well as the only municipal town in the district. The region was known as Mayakshetra (Maya's land) in the earliest records. Mayakshetra evolved into Mayanad and finally to Wayanad. The Folk etymology of the word says it is a combination of Vayal (paddy field) and Naad (land), making it 'The Land of Paddy Fields'. There are many indigenous tribals in this area. It is set high on the Western Ghats with altitudes ranging from 700 to 2100 m.
