Day 0: Depart for Wayanad:

We start off our overnight bus journey from Bangalore at 9 PM. Although we begin our adventure as a group of strangers, our trek leads have some exciting ice-breaking sessions planned that are guaranteed to turn any boring bus journey to an experience not to be missed! However, do make sure to get some sleep in between all the fun as a long and adventurous day awaits us the next day.

Day 1: Explore Thollayiram Kandi & Night Trek to Ambukuthi Hilltop:

Wake up to the smell of lush greenery all around as you cross over to Gods own Country, Kerala. Our first stop for the day is at a town called Sulthan Bathery, the first major town this side of the border where we’ll have a quick freshen up and grab a hearty Kerala style breakfast before we set off on our expedition for the day.

We now set off on a short bus journey to a town called Meppadi from where an exhilarating jeep ride towards Thollayiram Kandi awaits us. This utterly isolated paradise nestled away deep in the hidden reaches of Wayanad has largely managed to evade the tourist radars for long and as such we expect you to have the same respect and sense of responsibility while visiting this untouched haven.

Thollayiram meaning ‘Nine Hundred’ in Malayalam is actually the name of a huge 900-acre estate located inside the forest land that was once owned by one Parel Pappan which later got split into innumerable land masses with the passage of time. The name however stuck and the place is still called ‘Thollayiram’.

Hold on tight as you’re driven up an off-road jeep trail flanked by forest land on one side and coffee or cardamom plantations on the other to reach this pristine stretch. Grand views are offered at each bend as you enter this incredible landscape. This scenic drive through the trail is every bit as intriguing and adventurous as it sounds.

Once at the top, you are greeted with gurgling streams set against the backdrop of green carpeted hills peeking over the clouds in the distance. One whiff of the crisp mountain air laden with earthly aromas is all it takes to know why this place is a true nature lovers paradise. Hike through the strikingly beautiful stream set against a highly dramatic backdrop of lush rolling hills or take a pleasant walk through the forest trail and discover the many gems that this place holds within its shroud of greenery.

Head back to the homestay, freshen up, have a sumptuous dinner and get your tents packed as we get ready for the main event! The exhilarating night hike up Ambukuthi hills is definitely the highlight of the entire trip. The trek though short in distance, it is no less thrilling as you make your way up narrow forest trails and rocky boulders with just your torch lights for help. If you have some scary ghost stories up your sleeve, this is the perfect time to share them! 

Once at the top, take in the stunning night views of Wayanad. Unload your tents and set up camp and gather around as we light up our campfire and spend the night under the starry skies.

Day 2: Hike to Ambukuthi Peak & Return to Bangalore:

Wake up early on day 2 to catch one of the best sunrises of your life! Spot the majestic hills of Kodaikanal & Ooty in the distance and watch as the magical land of Wayanad down below unfold before your eyes with every passing ray of sunlight.

Find a perfect spot for yourself and take in these magical views before we take the final thrilling climb up the front face of Ambukuthi Peak for a stunning 360-degree view of Wayand that is simply to die for.
