Globetrotting Diaries: Wayanad, Kerala- India

Wayanad is a beautiful town in Indian State of Kerala. The name is formed from two words "Vayal - meaning Rice Fields" and "Naad - meaning Land". So it is the "Land of Rice (Paddy) Fields". It rests on high altitude varying from 700-2100 meters. 
As it rains most of the time the greenery is fabulous and the weather is humid but nice, the high peaks are mostly covered with lovely clouds.
Here are the picture of this beautiful place...
