Wayanad Chronicles - Day 2 - Vythiri

Being a week day, whole family was busy with their routine and we planned to start for the day. We were joined by hubby's cousin and we wanted to have Vythiri tour for day 2. Vythiri is known for its tea estates and contribute to most of Wayand's tea market. The plantation is so beautiful that you just want to get down at each estate you come across and go on clicking the pics. Yet HML Tea Museum with estate is some thing you can plan to visit, if you want to get deeper about tea or have a tea tasting session. The museum has a collection of old tea making machines, photographs of tea processing, type of tea and much more. If you have enough time, you can take a tour of the estate as well. Lunch for the day was at Aryabhavan Mess Food. This mess on Wayand - Kozhikode Road serves pure veg sadhya style lunch on banana leaf. One of the very few pure vegetarian homely food to find in Wayand. Don't look for hygiene, but the food is authentic and tasty.

With all their lush green tea estates, this region also houses most of the resorts of Wayanad. Enjoyed the lush green tea estates and headed to Lakkidi view point, the point which gives the beautiful view of the Thamarassery ghat. While returning back we stopped at Chain tree to hear about the monument and the story of Karinthandan. Its said Karinthandan was killed by British officers and chained to the tree. Since then the chain has been growing with the growing tree.
