We will be travelling to waynad un march end,,which area is better to stay kalapetta or sultan batthery??
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
Thanks Arun,,i wanted adv regarding can hire also as i will hv to travel from Calicut airport to waynad,sightseeing,towards Coorg,sightseeing,nd to manglore airport,we hv 4 days in waynad nd 3 in Coorg,,is it adv to hire a car for entire journey or point to point transfer with local sightseeing cabs will be economical
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)
Groowynd Holidays Wayanad
agreed to Sam
better to hire cab for whole trip
Thanks Sam nd Arun,,can u gv me a rough idea abt car expenses for whole trip ,,Sam..thanks in adv,,and abt hotels in both places too,,i gv u a Pm also,,
Car expences shall be approx 2000/ day and you may get hotels in range rs 2000-3000
can you please tell what is the type of car that you prefer ?
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.

A small car like indica would be fine..neenu.rajEdited: 30 August 2014, 01:45
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
