Nearby attractions:

Banasura Falls. A 10-minute trek from the resort takes you to this beautiful, unspoiled location.

Banasura Hill. The second highest peak in Wayanad looms beyond the resort. From this vantage point you can see miles and miles of incredible landscape.

Kuruva Islands. These uninhabited islands are in the middle of the Kabini river and form an idyllic beauty spot and habitat for rare species of birds and butterflies. Just an hour’s drive from Banasura.

Edakkal Caves. At 1,200 metres above sea level, the historic cave was discovered in 1890. It is formed by an enormous boulder straddling a massive fissure in the rock, creating a covered space 96 feet long, 22 feet wide and 30 feet high and is home to stone carvings from the Neolithic era.

Meenmutty Falls. Cascading down in three stages from a height of about 300 metres, Meenmutty Falls is a 2-kilometre trek from Banasura Hill Resort.

Wildlife sanctuaries. Tholpetty and Muthanga are both home to a variety of animals including tigers, leopards, elephants, panthers, civets, deer, bison, bears, monitor lizards and many birds.
