Wayanad mid forest experience – Part 1

I quit my job and had a 9 day vacation before I could join my next Employer. I planned a trip to Wayanad, but this time, in my Innova. I was in Wayanad same time last year, but that was a quick trip on a bike. This time, I had 3 days and 2 nights just for this one place. So we decided to make it to forest land and enjoy every bit of nature.


We call ourselves the PR Brothers, the candidates for this trip and cousins by relation. PRadeep, PRithiv, PRathap and PRaveen. Deepak is an exception since he has a twin named similary.

The trip started on a Sunday evening.

On our way to Gundulpet
