Wayanad is one of the districts in Kerala that has been able to retain its pristine nature.
Hidden away in the hills of this land are some of the oldest tribes of people, who are yet untouched by the fast pace of civilization.
Comprising an area of 2126 sq. kilometers, Wayanad has a powerful history. Historians are of the view that organised human life existed in these parts, at least ten centuries before Christ.
Countless evidences about New Stone Age civilization can be seen on the hills of Wayanad. The two caves of Ampukuthimala located between Sultan Bathery and Ambalavayal, with pictures painted on their walls and pictorial writings, speak volumes of the bygone era and civilization.
