Wayanad region is packed with dense rain forests. These forests are spread over 20,864 hectares of land and remain evergreen throughout the year. You can see many springs and river streams that do not dry up even in the hot summers.These dense forests are nurtured by the Western Ghats and run parallel to the western coastline. The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxes the body, mind and soul. The dense greens also help in maintaining an ecological balance and are surrounded by steep hills of coffee, tea, cardamom & pepper plantations.
