The name Wayanad Kerala derives from ‘Vayal Nadu,’ meaning ‘land of paddy fields.’ This elevated plateau is nestled against the flanks of the Western Ghats and it ranges from 700 meters to 2100 meters above sea level. Wayanad has it all: lofty ridges interspersed with dense forest, tangled jungles and deep valleys where spices flourish, and of course, cultivable fields!
Though recorded history of this district exists only from the 10th century onward, archaeological evidence shows human habitation of the Wayanad forest dates back to over 3,000 ago (some historians claim it dates back to at least ten centuries before Christ). New evidence regarding Stone Age civilizations is always cropping up in these picturesque hills, especially at the Edakkal Cave in Sulthan Bathery. Cuneiforms and hieroglyphics on the walls here tell untold stories of a bygone era.
