Known as Mayakshetra or Maya's Land, the dense forests of Wayanad in Kerala have been inhabited by people for over 3000 years. The lush green forests of the Nilgiri Biosphere are the perfect setting, within which we explore the relationship between man and nature and how it shapes the local culture, history, economy and more. It is also home to several endangered species, such as elephants, tigers, slender loris and bonnet macaque.

Trip Inquiry



A trip to Wayanad should atleast be 4 night and 5 days so that it allows students to explore these activities curated for this module comfortably, with clear learning outcomes.

Given below are a few activities that can be conducted at this destination, along with the appropriate age group. Our forte is customisation, so feel free to select ONE, ALL or ANY combination of the below activities to design a trip unique to your curriculum and experiential learning needs.

Spice Walk (Appropriate Age - 11 years and above)

Wayanad is a land of spices and our spice walk is intended to introduce students to the varied spices of Kerala like pepper, coffee, ginger etc. The aim will be on understanding scientific cultivation processes and how it drives the local economy. 

Bamboo Handicraft Workshop at Uravu (Appropriate Age - 11 years and above)

Uravu is a self-help group of about 200 local women who specialise in making handicrafts using the local bamboo. The students will learn about bamboo handicrafts through a hands on training workshop conducted at Uravu under guidance of experts. They will also learn about the economics of a self-sustaining self-help group.

Chembra Peak (Appropriate Age - 12 years and above)

This is a 6km day trek through the Sholas (temperate evergreen) forests of Kerala. The trek apart from being a great bio diversity exposure will also have orienteering lessons, where the students will get to map the trek.

Bamboo Rafting (Appropriate Age - 13 years and above)

Bamboo rafting is an interesting sport where students will get to maneuver a raft through a still water stream while moving across varied habitats. Whilst on the raft, one can spot many indigenous and migratory birds by the water.

Tribal Archery (Appropriate Age - 11 years and above)

The students will be able to try their hand at traditional archery practiced by the indigenous tribes. The archery lessons will be imparted by a tribal archer who has won many accolades in the field. Apart from archery itself, the students will also learn about traditional hunting methods.

Zipline (Appropriate Age - 12 years and above)

It's a fun outdoor activity which also develops exposure to varied outdoor sports.

Tea Plantation Visit (Appropriate Age - 11 years and above)

We will visit the tea plantation run by a local tribal community. Apart from learning about the tea production, we will also participate in community service with the community that works over here.

Art and Culture of Kerala (Appropriate Age - 11 years and above)

During the trip, the students will get a chance to explore various performance art forms of Kerala. They will learn about the history and the variations that are part of the art form. They will also be able to participate in them. We will explore Chenda, Thaiyyam, Kathakali and Kolkali.

Social Responsibility (Appropriate Age - 12 years and above)

Students will participate in a community service project at the tea plantation and also learn how to ensure a zero footprint during the Chemba trail exploration, through trail clean-ups and exposure to responsible tourism.


Uncontrolled and irresponsible tourism is adding to the environmental degradation of this biodiverse region. Tourists who come from every part of the country litter plastic bags and beer bottles, not only by the road side, but also inside the forest.

There is very little enforcement of regulations. Mining is also destroying Wayanad's 8000 year old Edakkal cave system. Through activities centred around understanding the area, its conservation challenges and exposing students to responisble practices, we hope to mitigate some of these challenges.
