Off Beat Holiday in Wayanad

I’ve been a little MIA but that is because I have had back to back shoots (I’m a full time photographer if you didn’t know :), more about that in following posts)  keeping me busy for the last couple of weeks.  I apologise!

So my recent trip to Kerala is the one I am going to talk about today. And Wayanad in particular. We drove 5 hours away from Bangalore to Wayanad. We stayed at this beautiful almost secluded homestay called Spice Garden. Can’t begin to tell you all how beautiful this place was and everything it had to offer. The breathtaking views in every corner were mesmerising. After a long drive there, we were finally greeted by the sweetest host/owner of the property. They instantly made us feel right at home.

My favourite part of this homestay was the fact that it had a 10-acre farm in which they farm all kinds of spices, vegetables, fruits and what not. They grow and make everything themselves, so the taste in their food is authentic, fresh & organic 🙂

We dint venture out of that homestay at all to  see any touristy places but instead spent all our time walking through the paddy fields , playing with rabbits, taking turns to sit on the long swing tied to the branch of the tree.

We were taken on a mini tour of the farm and it was interesting to hear and see the whole process of how various spices, vegetables & fruits are grown; it made me rethink the way we eat and our food habits. Infact we actually went through the whole  ginger cultivation process- What Fun! (More on this maybe in a separate post)

We booked for staying 2 nights thinking, it would be more than enough to sink into the wilderness. But it just wasn’t enough. Wish I could stay a little longer. We w completely enamoured by the beauty of this place as I haven’t had an experience like this before.Highly recommend an off-beat holiday in Wayanad like this one to anyone wanting to get off the tourist trail & experience a beautiful part of India.

Below are some images of me in an abandoned paddy field with a plantation of betel nuts in the background
