We are three ladies staying at Pepper Grove KTDC hotel in Sulthan Bathery for four days, i.e., 19-22 June 2016. We are on a limited budget but don't want to miss Edakkal caves or Chembra peak. We would also like to spend a day (or will half a day be enough?) at some wildlife reserve/sanctuary.
(1) Any information on public transport options to get from Calicut airport to Sulthan Bathery on 18th June morning?
(2) Can anyone suggest a non-rushed itinerary of day trips (four days) from Sulthan Bathery?
(3) Also, any suggestions on reliable transportation, preferably public transport? Has anyone used any local (and SAFE) taxi/jeep services or do you have any recommendations?
(4) Wayanad is obviously beautiful but are there any places that we should avoid (not worth the trip or unsafe especially for women)?
