Planning a Trip
Banasura Sagar Dam
Wayanad District has no railway lines. Buses are available from Kozhikode and Mysore. Access from Kerala is difficult because of the mountain passes or 'ghat roads'. Access from Mysore and Madikeri is easier as no Ghat Roads are involved. The nearest airports are at Kondotty and Bangalore. Mysore airport is functional without any flights !
Night traffic is banned towards Mysore, Bangalore side. However, night traffic is allowed through Mananthavady.
