The name Wayanad is derived from Vayal Nadu which means the land of paddy fields. It is a picturesque plateau situated at a height of 2100- 6700 Ft above the sea level nestled among the mountains of the Western Ghats on the Eastern portion of North Kerala. Even though a Tribal dominated region, Wayanad contributes a big share to the foreign exchange earning of the state with its production of cash crops like pepper, cardamom, coffee, tea, spices and other condiments. The region is also a widely popular tourist destination with a range of attractions like scenic locations, wildlife, waterfalls, historic site, religious sites etc.
