Waynad – Walk in the Rains

with 2 comments

The rainy season and who would not love to enjoy the walk in the drizzling rains. My first trip to Waynad and that too in the rainy season was really an enjoyable trip. The 2 days in Waynad in the rains was totally experiencing the Kerala at its best.

A group of 8-10 of were in the green lush of Waynad welcomed by the rains. The resort we booked was amidst the mist-clad hills with the waterfalls gushing out. Banasura Hill Resort,

a resort set in the natural and scenic view of Waynad, is also a great place to spend your vacations.

We reached our resort and without worrying about the rains started towards the Banasura Dam. With an awesome scenic view of the waters with layered hills, enjoying the rains, we spend some time capturing the beauty in our cameras , our eyes.

You visit Kerala and if you miss the fish and the boiled rice, you will miss one of the nicest delicacy. With hungry stomachs we had a sumptuous lunch of fish curry and boiled rice served on the banana leaves with papad and not to forget the rasam.

An evening walk through the forest and slope road led us to a spectacular view of the Meenmutty Falls with water gushing out in full force giving a beautiful white colour.  Roaming around in the rain , we were now fully drenched and were back to our resort.  The day ended with a nice dinner and good sleep in the cosy, palatial rooms of the resort.

Early morning waken up by the chirping of the birds we decided to explore the surroundings of the resort. Walked though the forest and finding out the paths we were able to find one of the most beautiful waterfalls. With our camera tightly in our hands, protecting it from the waters we rushed through the waterfall. Enjoyed the chilled water of the waterfall giving a shivering feeling all through the body.

Time to pack the bags and leave the resort, visit Suchipara Falls in the heavy rains we bid goodbye to the beautiful place of Waynad. Really it was “Walk in the Rains” for the 2 days in the Gods’ Own Country .
