The name Wayanad literally translates into the land of forests and even today, it has large tracts of virgin forest lands, wildlife and blissful nature trails that will awaken your senses.
Wayanad is a rich treasure trove of some of the relics of the New Stone Age civilizations in the forms of engravings and pictures in the caves of Edakkal and Ampukuthimala, which offer clues about the past civilizations.
