Wayanad - The Ooty of Kerala 

Wayanad is a hill station in Kerala, located at a distance of about 280 kms. from Bangalore. The place is famous for scenic beauty and pleasant weather. The best time to visit this place is during the months of winter. It is hot and humid during summer months. Monsoons are severe in these regions and hence it would be difficult to see places even though the scenic beauty is at its peak during these months.
