Chateau Woods

Wayanad, Kerala

Calicut is the nearest big city, but even from Bangalore Chateau Woods is a good option. The drive is long but excellent, flanked by the western ghat forests and regular wildlife sightings like Indian gaur and elephants. The road to Mysore leads to Nanjangud, Gundlupet, through the forests of Bandipur and finally hitting the border sanctuary of Sultan Battery, as one enters Kerala through the bamboo stands.

The estate is off the main Kalpetta-Calicut highway, wedged between low tea-covered hills, pleasantly away from the din of traffic.

Driving, at least for the last leg, is the only option. Otherwise, see below.

When to go:

Wayanad is its greenest best just after the rains in June, July and August, when the misty haze adds a dash of otherworldliness to the view. The most ‘leech-free’ and outdoor-conducive months are from October to March.


Getting around:

The only way to get around for any sightseeing is in your own car or a cab that can be arranged easily at an additional cost.
