Wayanad wasn’t on my original Kerala itinerary, but I decided to travel there from Tiruvannamalai after getting an invite from another of the houses run by the Grace & Compassion sisters. And I’m so glad I did, as it’s definitely up there on the list of “most beautiful places I have ever visited” (jostling with Norway and Ladakh for the top spot).

The landscape is dotted with tea plantations, rice paddies and waterfalls:
Quite simply a magical place.
