  • Trip introduction

    The Wayanad night trek is the perfect holiday for travellers looking to visit an offbeat destination on a short and easy trek. This 4-day adventure, a great option for beginner trekkers, takes you to the hidden gems of Kerala, from the forests of Thollayiram to the hilltop of Ambukuthi. These attractions, untouched by the crowd of tourists, offer some of the most dramatic views of the Wayand landscape. Another highlight of this trek, you'll embark on a night trek up the Ambukuthi hills, spend the night in tents at the hilltop and wake up to views of a gorgeous sunrise.

    Destination

    Experience the authentic, raw beauty of Wayanad, a hill-station perched high atop the mountains of the Western Ghats. An isolated paradise, this hill-station is blessed with the lush greenery of Kerala, making it perfect for a quick escape from the city life. An exhilarating, off-road jeep ride through Thollayiram promises scenic views with a thick forest on your left and sprawling coffee or cardamom plantations on your right. Grand views of gurgling river streams and waterfalls set against the backdrop of green carpeted hills await at the end.
