The aim of this cottage is to get as close to nature as possible, as characterized by the abundant greens, mint green facade and locally made roof tiles. The design for the cottage thus revolves around a radial octagon that emerges into eight sides at the edges and contracts into a central square, which is lit and ventilated by the skylight above and is also the circulation space for the three bedrooms. The foyer offers as a drawing, dining and kitchen in studio apartment style modernity. All members can gather here and take part in the activities, the attached bedrooms providing necessary privacy.

The rainy seasons are the best time to visit Wayanad if you want to see the forests, hills and vegetation at their best. Imagine yourself warming up with a hot cup of brew, looking out at the rains and accompanying mists!! Alternatively the summer months of March-May are better suited for outdoor activities and wildlife safaris. Animal sightings tend to be better in summer owing to many animals migrating to the forests of Wayanad from other reserves, in search of better water resources and prey.
Fauna and Flora
Wayanad’s forests are rich in plant and animal diversity, and play a crucial role in the conservation of several rare species some of which include but not limited to the Lion tailed Macaque, the Royal Bengal Tiger and Elephants.
Even though Wayanad is the least populated district in Kerala, it has the highest tribal population. Some of the tribes still speak their own languages. The tribes are experts at extracting valuable forest resources, and their weapons, art forms and handicrafts are major attractions for tourists. Their ethnic food recipes, like dishes made from forest leaves, bamboo and paddy crabs, are some of the specialities here.
