Dear Experts, I need ur opinions & advice

1)Is Kalpetta (Wayanad) worth visiting 1st week Sept? mustseeindia.com says "The South West monsoon takes over during the months of June to September. The North East monsoon follows suit, during the months of October and November. The place experiences torrential rainfall during this time, and travelling to Kalpetta is not advisable due to this"

Mumbai--fly to Mangalore--bus to Madikeri & stay 3N

HI

Monsoon in Wayanad does not trouble much after end of August. But, we can never predict. Even though, Jun-Jul is Monsoon period it has not been raining much.

Take bus from Madikeri to Mysore, then Ooty.

From Ooty come to Wayanad and take direct bus to Bangalore. There are comfortable AC Volvo buses plying in Wayanad - Bangalore route.

Regards

Is Kannur also worth visiting for its pristine beaches?

Or will they be dirty in the monsoon?

So, Mangalore--Madikeri 3N--Kannur 2N--Kalpetta 2N--Ooty 3N--Mysore 2N--Bangalore 2N?

Kannur, Muzhupilangad has a very good drive in beach.

I would suggest Kannur 1N and Kalpetta 3N.

Routing

Mangalore - Kannur - Wayanad - Ooty- Mysore- Madikeri-Bangalore.

defenitely it is worth visiting 1st week of september , well the monsoon would have subsided a bit and there wont be a continous rain .

but in my personal opinion you should pick either madikeri or wayanad , since both places are surrounded by coffee estates and its kinda similar ,of course you cannot compare with each other similar .

have a great vacation

cheers
