Grassroots is located in the heart of Wayanad, near the district capital of Kalpetta. Wayanad is in the western Ghats with its dense tree cover and rolling hills.
There can only be three ways to describe Wayanad: Green, Greener, Greenest. It is a rich agricultural belt home to gardens of Coffee,tea,pepper and spices on the hills and the wet lands with paddy. It is a land of great communal harmony and life moves at a very relaxed pace with none of the hustle bustle of the cities. We wish to showcase Wayanad in its true green color. A settlement of indigenous communities or adivasis live next door, beside the flowing river at the edge of the property.
Come climb the peaks of Wayanad or laze around in the slow paced towns or play soccer in the paddy fields with the local boys , get covered in mud and then have a dip in the river nearby.
Tranquility in a tent
This the closest you can get to living in nature. It is a combination of camping (tent house) with comfort and good food. The tent houses were in the middle of a coffee plantation surrounded by tall trees. Top it off, the river Kabini flows by the place. It was like living in a tropical jungle. All basic amenities were provided - hot water, refrigerator, TV,A/C, etc. The staff and the manager, Prajwal are very friendly and helpful.They attended to all our needs and requests. The food was homely and delicious.
The amenities in Grassroots cater to the needs of the evolved, minimalist traveler, while being sumptuous. With its limited inventory of five tents it attempts to provide a very private and personalized holiday.
