Wayanad is one of the most beautiful hill stations in India and is popularly known as the land of paddy fields. This heaven on earth is located 76 km from Kozhikode. Known for its misty hill stations, exotic spice plantations, thick forests and rich cultural traditions, Wayanad is also home to some of the oldest known tribes in South India.
About 30 percent of the tourists visiting Kerala choose Wayanad as their favourite destination. Wayanad has been visited by people from Kerala, Karnataka particularly from Bangalore and Mysore, and a lot of foreigners, who are enjoying the scenic beauty of the place. But as the tourist inflow began to rise gradually, the issue of shortage of hotel rooms is more evident.
It became expensive for people to stay there and get the Ayurveda treatment. Having a second home in Wayanad, opens up a new source of income to the people for building home stays and renting it to tourists.
