as i suggested in other post,kalpetta is more centred and sight seeings to vythiri area, sulthan bathery areas and to manathavadi areas can be done more easily.

Also kalpetta is district head quarters of wayanad and more restuarants and hotels are concentrated in this area

Hi

Welcome to Wayanad.

Places Nearer to Sulthan Bathery : Muthanga Wild Life Sanctuary (12 Km), Edakkal Caves (13 Km), Sulthan Bathery Jain Temple (1Km)

Places Nearer to Kalpetta : View Point and Pookot Lake (16 Km), Banasura Sagar Dam (18 Km)

Soochipara Waterfalls is also comparatively more closer to Kalpetta.

Other places like Kuruva Island, Tholpetty Wild Life and Thirunelli Temple can be covered when you travel from Wayanad to Coorg, enroute.

It is better to hire a cab for Calicut-Wayanad-Coorg-Mangalore than taking point-point (more economical and ease of journey)

Vythiri area is more popular than kalapetta or sultan batthery for fine climate. Hill stations are more popular in summer. kalapetta or sultan batthery would be hot at end of March.

Assuming 8 days of total tour from calicut airport to wayanad to coorg to Mangalore ,tata indica a/c would cost approx rs 13000 for 1200 kms

I guess cab would touch Max 1050 kms for this trip ,calicut to calicut
