Treasure Trove in Wayanad - our temporary home amid coffee plantation || Kerala Diaries

Sometimes it helps to not do much research about your travel and stay. You open yourself to surprises. And this worked in our favor during the first few days of our stay at Wayanad. The Kerala trip started with our entry into Wayanad and stay at Treasure Trove Homestay in Meenangadi. We decided to stay at Treasure Trove for 2 nights and booked through India Untravelled . This Photo Journey shares some moments spent at Treasure Trove and our experience being there.After the bus ride from Bengaluru  we reached Sultan Battery at around 7:30pm and Sunil (our host) suggested us to take an autorickshaw from there to Meenangadi. We reached Treasure Trove at around 8pm. The above photograph shows Sunil & Reena's house in Meenangadi. Apart from this house, they have two huts inside a Coffee plantation. The very first photograph shows the hut we were staying in. we had our dinner at 8:30pm that night and Reena had cooked lovely food. The beetroot dish was new for us and it was very tasty. We had to get the recipe but missed it :). Probably we will mail Reena and request her to share the recipe on email. Reena had also cooked chapattis and we loved them. This shows how careful the hosts are about guests’ preferences. Over the dinner we chatted with Sunil and Reena about Treasure Trove, the surroundings, and what all we can do next day. We didn't have any plans at that time. Sunil and Reena were quite helpful in planning things for us and arranging an auto for us. Language is an issue in this region, and the much-needed help was always available for us there. We didn't need to worry about anything whether related to local sightseeing or transportation from Treasure Trove to our other HomeStay in Bamboo village. Reena suggested us to book an auto for the whole day for sightseeing because that would cost less as compared to hiring autos for different places. We planned for Edakkal Caves and Curuva Island. Auto for the whole day costed us 1200 Rs, which was quite reasonable.We had a beautiful room at the homestay. The above photograph doesn't do justice to the beauty of the room. The room is quite spacious with a double bed on one side and a pair of chairs with bamboo table on the other side.Apart from that there is enough space in the room to walk around. There are a few cupboards, a mirror, and an attached washroom. There was a TV inside the room, although we didn't use it much. There is a beautiful balcony at the back, which opens into the coffee plantations.In the above photograph, you can see the clean and well-fitted washroom in our room at Treasure Trove. The whole hut is very well done and offers a comfortable space to guests. We were pretty happy with the arrangements. During night it gets cold, so there were a few blankets. Apart from these blankets, we also felt the need of quilts.One of the walls inside the room is beautifully painted and I thought of capturing it in my TravellingCamera.Here is a panoramic view of balcony of the hut at Treasure Trove.There are lot of coconut trees around this homestay and interesting activities start happening early in the morning. Check out the video shared below. This garden around Treasure Trove huts has various plants/trees including black pepper, coffee, coconut, rubber trees, banana trees, and jackfruit trees etc. The above photograph shows the black pepper creeper.These were the coffee beans growing on the coffee trees around Treasure Trove. These bunches of coffee fruits look awesome around green plantations.This is the dining area of Treasure Trove. We used to have breakfast here and the dinner was always served inside the house. Both were clean and appropriate places to enjoy food. In all meals, we got different things to eat.Treasure Trove has a section full of rubber trees.Our host Sunil has also setup a small rubber production house in the farm house. Some workers come to collect raw material and create rubber sheets.rubber sheets are dried in the sun and in the process get darker in colour. They are then sold to agencies, which sell them further to companies who convert them into rubber products. There are some beautiful walks around Treasure Trove and we explored most of the regions around the homestay during morning & evening walks at Meenangadi.The above photograph was clicked with my mobile during one of the morning walks around Treasure Trove in Wayanad. Treasure Trove has well maintained lawns around the huts and we had good time sitting there. After morning walk, we used to sit here for sometime. Wi-Fi is also available at Treasure Trove but it can be used around the dining region and not in the huts. 3G connection was also not working well inside the huts, but that was not a big deal for anyone who is on vacation :). Panorama made through my phone during one of the morning walks around Treasure Trove in Wayanad. Coffee fruits spread in one part of Treasure Trove. Coffee beans come out of these fruits, but further processing happens at other places which are managed by relatively bigger agencies.Before leaving for Bamboo village, we took a round of Treasure Trove and realized that most of the veggies are grown in kitchen garden except potatoes and onion, which comes from Karnataka. The above photograph shows a waste management unit, which is well utilized by Sunil and his family. Let me also share that this Homestay is maintained mostly by Reena. Sunil helps her during weekends.We loved being there at Treasure Trove and would love to visit again when we are around Wayanad region.

We had to get the recipe but missed it :). Probably we will mail Reena and request her to share the recipe on email. Reena had also cooked chapattis and we loved them. This shows how careful the hosts are about guests’ preferences. Over the dinner we chatted with Sunil and Reena about Treasure Trove, the surroundings, and what all we can do next day. We didn't have any plans at that time. Sunil and Reena were quite helpful in planning things for us and arranging an auto for us. Language is an issue in this region, and the much-needed help was always available for us there. We didn't need to worry about anything whether related to local sightseeing or transportation from Treasure Trove to our other HomeStay in Bamboo village. Reena suggested us to book an auto for the whole day for sightseeing because that would cost less as compared to hiring autos for different places. We planned for Edakkal Caves and Curuva Island. Auto for the whole day costed us 1200 Rs, which was quite reasonable.We had a beautiful room at the homestay. The above photograph doesn't do justice to the beauty of the room. The room is quite spacious with a double bed on one side and a pair of chairs with bamboo table on the other side.Apart from that there is enough space in the room to walk around. There are a few cupboards, a mirror, and an attached washroom. There was a TV inside the room, although we didn't use it much. There is a beautiful balcony at the back, which opens into the coffee plantations.In the above photograph, you can see the clean and well-fitted washroom in our room at Treasure Trove. The whole hut is very well done and offers a comfortable space to guests. We were pretty happy with the arrangements. During night it gets cold, so there were a few blankets. Apart from these blankets, we also felt the need of quilts.One of the walls inside the room is beautifully painted and I thought of capturing it in my TravellingCamera.Here is a panoramic view of balcony of the hut at Treasure Trove.There are lot of coconut trees around this homestay and interesting activities start happening early in the morning. Check out the video shared below. This garden around Treasure Trove huts has various plants/trees including black pepper, coffee, coconut, rubber trees, banana trees, and jackfruit trees etc. The above photograph shows the black pepper creeper.These were the coffee beans growing on the coffee trees around Treasure Trove. These bunches of coffee fruits look awesome around green plantations.This is the dining area of Treasure Trove. We used to have breakfast here and the dinner was always served inside the house. Both were clean and appropriate places to enjoy food. In all meals, we got different things to eat.Treasure Trove has a section full of rubber trees.Our host Sunil has also setup a small rubber production house in the farm house. Some workers come to collect raw material and create rubber sheets.rubber sheets are dried in the sun and in the process get darker in colour. They are then sold to agencies, which sell them further to companies who convert them into rubber products. There are some beautiful walks around Treasure Trove and we explored most of the regions around the homestay during morning & evening walks at Meenangadi.The above photograph was clicked with my mobile during one of the morning walks around Treasure Trove in Wayanad. Treasure Trove has well maintained lawns around the huts and we had good time sitting there. After morning walk, we used to sit here for sometime. Wi-Fi is also available at Treasure Trove but it can be used around the dining region and not in the huts. 3G connection was also not working well inside the huts, but that was not a big deal for anyone who is on vacation :). Panorama made through my phone during one of the morning walks around Treasure Trove in Wayanad. Coffee fruits spread in one part of Treasure Trove. Coffee beans come out of these fruits, but further processing happens at other places which are managed by relatively bigger agencies.Before leaving for Bamboo village, we took a round of Treasure Trove and realized that most of the veggies are grown in kitchen garden except potatoes and onion, which comes from Karnataka. The above photograph shows a waste management unit, which is well utilized by Sunil and his family. Let me also share that this Homestay is maintained mostly by Reena. Sunil helps her during weekends.We loved being there at Treasure Trove and would love to visit again when we are around Wayanad region.

Apart from that there is enough space in the room to walk around. There are a few cupboards, a mirror, and an attached washroom. There was a TV inside the room, although we didn't use it much. There is a beautiful balcony at the back, which opens into the coffee plantations.

Sunil helps her during weekends.We loved being there at Treasure Trove and would love to visit again when we are around Wayanad region.

Now we had to move to another place within Wayanad. Our next home stay was in Bamboo village which is located around Thrikkaippetta. We waked up at 6:30am and went for a walk around Treasure Trove. We were surprised to see lot of action happening at 6:30am. Folks were cutting coconuts out of the trees, rubber collection had started and lot more.We hit a place with huge farming hill full of beans and coconut trees around them. Talked to our host Sunil to confirm that most of the folks in Wayanad region are into Coffee, coconut, spices, banana & other agricultural activities.After coming back from morning walk, we thought of taking another round of Treatuse Trove. It was coffee plantation, rubber trees, various varieties of flowers, jackfruit trees, different types of bamboos, which were very well maintained. We also had a look at waste management system Sunil has at his house.  And then look a round of machinery for rubber processing.While having tea, we noticed a man climbing coconut tree to cut the bunches of coconuts. He was quite quick to do all that. These coconut trees were approximately 100 feet high. Please see the video to see how these folks climb and descend from a coconut tree. After breakfast, it was time to pack our stuff and move towards our next Homestay in Wayanad only. Sunil dropped us at Bamboo village and we had some interesting conversations on the way. He told us about his daughter who is 9th standard and managing her school magazine. Recently she met DC of Wayanad for an interview and she along with her friend managed to take the appointment without any other help. He wanted to know more about Creative Writing courses planned by Vibha and wondering if she can join one of the online courses. Then we had some conversations around education system in Kerala. It seems that Government schools are becoming popular as compared to private schools now, which is probably opposite of what we have been seeing in other states. Also there is a trend shift wherein top students of a class are opting non-science subjects.It was 30-45 minutes drive from Treasure Trove to Bamboo village. Suneesh is our host at Bamboo village. There are many homestays in this village and all are run as a community.  Daniel is the lead guide of village who helps guests in planning various things around the village. After welcome drink, we planned to take a tour of the village and what all these folks have been doing for development of eco-tourism. Suneesh took us to different parts of the village and shared some of the experiences related usage of Bamboo for various things.All villagers have come together and building a bamboo town which different sized villas which would be used for tourism only. This place is located around a water body and beautifully located around hills. One of the bamboo cottage was ready and someone was already staying there. On the way, we met different villagers busy with different activities. Suneesh also took us to the local tribe who are also part of Bamboo initiatives and organization is aiming to ensure that all tribal kids are educated and become part of mainstream.After coming back home we had lunch, which was served on banana leaves. It was lovely food. Crispy fish was special for us. Complete fish was fried and we were wondering about the right way to eat these. It took some time to figure out and as per Suneesh, bones of those fish are very thin and can be eaten.After lunch, we took some rest and then went to Chundale. There is a organization called Muddy boots which organize different kinds of activities around Wayanad. We opted for cycling around tea estates in Meppady. They wasted lot of time, even when bookings were done 2 months back. They were not ready when we reached the place.  Muddy Boots team was supposed to take us to Meppady and plan the cycling. Finally we took the same auto and headed towards Meppady. It was a beautiful location. I hardly did cycling, as I wanted to make best of the landscapes around this area. We had only 1 hour in our hand, which could have been utilized either for cycling or photography. Vibha enjoyed a long cycle ride around the tea plantations. It was a lovely evening, although Muddy Boots had put the best efforts to spoil the evening.After coming back home, we resolved some of the queries by Suneesh. He wanted to download some of the softwares to manage/edit his photographs and few tips around managing his social initiatives through Facebook. Suneesh had wiki at home and we also checked pending emails for last few days.
It was another fulfilling day !



There are lot of coconut trees around this homestay and interesting activities start happening early in the morning. Check out the video shared below - 





Sometimes it helps to not do much research about your travel and stay. You open yourself to surprises. And this worked in our favor during the first few days of our stay at Wayanad. The Kerala trip started with our entry into Wayanad and stay at Treasure Trove Homestay in Meenangadi. We decided to stay at Treasure Trove for 2 nights and booked through India Untravelled . This Photo Journey shares some moments spent at Treasure Trove and our experience being there.After the bus ride from Bengaluru  we reached Sultan Battery at around 7:30pm and Sunil (our host) suggested us to take an autorickshaw from there to Meenangadi. We reached Treasure Trove at around 8pm. The above photograph shows Sunil & Reena's house in Meenangadi. Apart from this house, they have two huts inside a Coffee plantation. The very first photograph shows the hut we were staying in. we had our dinner at 8:30pm that night and Reena had cooked lovely food. The beetroot dish was new for us and it was very tasty. We had to get the recipe but missed it :). Probably we will mail Reena and request her to share the recipe on email. Reena had also cooked chapattis and we loved them. This shows how careful the hosts are about guests’ preferences. Over the dinner we chatted with Sunil and Reena about Treasure Trove, the surroundings, and what all we can do next day. We didn't have any plans at that time. Sunil and Reena were quite helpful in planning things for us and arranging an auto for us. Language is an issue in this region, and the much-needed help was always available for us there. We didn't need to worry about anything whether related to local sightseeing or transportation from Treasure Trove to our other HomeStay in Bamboo village. Reena suggested us to book an auto for the whole day for sightseeing because that would cost less as compared to hiring autos for different places. We planned for Edakkal Caves and Curuva Island. Auto for the whole day costed us 1200 Rs, which was quite reasonable.We had a beautiful room at the homestay. The above photograph doesn't do justice to the beauty of the room. The room is quite spacious with a double bed on one side and a pair of chairs with bamboo table on the other side.Apart from that there is enough space in the room to walk around. There are a few cupboards, a mirror, and an attached washroom. There was a TV inside the room, although we didn't use it much. There is a beautiful balcony at the back, which opens into the coffee plantations.In the above photograph, you can see the clean and well-fitted washroom in our room at Treasure Trove. The whole hut is very well done and offers a comfortable space to guests. We were pretty happy with the arrangements. During night it gets cold, so there were a few blankets. Apart from these blankets, we also felt the need of quilts.One of the walls inside the room is beautifully painted and I thought of capturing it in my TravellingCamera.Here is a panoramic view of balcony of the hut at Treasure Trove.There are lot of coconut trees around this homestay and interesting activities start happening early in the morning. Check out the video shared below. This garden around Treasure Trove huts has various plants/trees including black pepper, coffee, coconut, rubber trees, banana trees, and jackfruit trees etc. The above photograph shows the black pepper creeper.These were the coffee beans growing on the coffee trees around Treasure Trove. These bunches of coffee fruits look awesome around green plantations.This is the dining area of Treasure Trove. We used to have breakfast here and the dinner was always served inside the house. Both were clean and appropriate places to enjoy food. In all meals, we got different things to eat.Treasure Trove has a section full of rubber trees.Our host Sunil has also setup a small rubber production house in the farm house. Some workers come to collect raw material and create rubber sheets.rubber sheets are dried in the sun and in the process get darker in colour. They are then sold to agencies, which sell them further to companies who convert them into rubber products. There are some beautiful walks around Treasure Trove and we explored most of the regions around the homestay during morning & evening walks at Meenangadi.The above photograph was clicked with my mobile during one of the morning walks around Treasure Trove in Wayanad. Treasure Trove has well maintained lawns around the huts and we had good time sitting there. After morning walk, we used to sit here for sometime. Wi-Fi is also available at Treasure Trove but it can be used around the dining region and not in the huts. 3G connection was also not working well inside the huts, but that was not a big deal for anyone who is on vacation :). Panorama made through my phone during one of the morning walks around Treasure Trove in Wayanad. Coffee fruits spread in one part of Treasure Trove. Coffee beans come out of these fruits, but further processing happens at other places which are managed by relatively bigger agencies.Before leaving for Bamboo village, we took a round of Treasure Trove and realized that most of the veggies are grown in kitchen garden except potatoes and onion, which comes from Karnataka. The above photograph shows a waste management unit, which is well utilized by Sunil and his family. Let me also share that this Homestay is maintained mostly by Reena. Sunil helps her during weekends.We loved being there at Treasure Trove and would love to visit again when we are around Wayanad region.

This garden around Treasure Trove huts has various plants/trees including black pepper, coffee, coconut, rubber trees, banana trees, and jackfruit trees etc. The above photograph shows the black pepper creeper. 

Now we had to move to another place within Wayanad. Our next home stay was in Bamboo village which is located around Thrikkaippetta. We waked up at 6:30am and went for a walk around Treasure Trove. We were surprised to see lot of action happening at 6:30am. Folks were cutting coconuts out of the trees, rubber collection had started and lot more.We hit a place with huge farming hill full of beans and coconut trees around them. Talked to our host Sunil to confirm that most of the folks in Wayanad region are into Coffee, coconut, spices, banana & other agricultural activities.After coming back from morning walk, we thought of taking another round of Treatuse Trove. It was coffee plantation, rubber trees, various varieties of flowers, jackfruit trees, different types of bamboos, which were very well maintained. We also had a look at waste management system Sunil has at his house.  And then look a round of machinery for rubber processing.While having tea, we noticed a man climbing coconut tree to cut the bunches of coconuts. He was quite quick to do all that. These coconut trees were approximately 100 feet high. Please see the video to see how these folks climb and descend from a coconut tree. After breakfast, it was time to pack our stuff and move towards our next Homestay in Wayanad only. Sunil dropped us at Bamboo village and we had some interesting conversations on the way. He told us about his daughter who is 9th standard and managing her school magazine. Recently she met DC of Wayanad for an interview and she along with her friend managed to take the appointment without any other help. He wanted to know more about Creative Writing courses planned by Vibha and wondering if she can join one of the online courses. Then we had some conversations around education system in Kerala. It seems that Government schools are becoming popular as compared to private schools now, which is probably opposite of what we have been seeing in other states. Also there is a trend shift wherein top students of a class are opting non-science subjects.It was 30-45 minutes drive from Treasure Trove to Bamboo village. Suneesh is our host at Bamboo village. There are many homestays in this village and all are run as a community.  Daniel is the lead guide of village who helps guests in planning various things around the village. After welcome drink, we planned to take a tour of the village and what all these folks have been doing for development of eco-tourism. Suneesh took us to different parts of the village and shared some of the experiences related usage of Bamboo for various things.All villagers have come together and building a bamboo town which different sized villas which would be used for tourism only. This place is located around a water body and beautifully located around hills. One of the bamboo cottage was ready and someone was already staying there. On the way, we met different villagers busy with different activities. Suneesh also took us to the local tribe who are also part of Bamboo initiatives and organization is aiming to ensure that all tribal kids are educated and become part of mainstream.After coming back home we had lunch, which was served on banana leaves. It was lovely food. Crispy fish was special for us. Complete fish was fried and we were wondering about the right way to eat these. It took some time to figure out and as per Suneesh, bones of those fish are very thin and can be eaten.After lunch, we took some rest and then went to Chundale. There is a organization called Muddy boots which organize different kinds of activities around Wayanad. We opted for cycling around tea estates in Meppady. They wasted lot of time, even when bookings were done 2 months back. They were not ready when we reached the place.  Muddy Boots team was supposed to take us to Meppady and plan the cycling. Finally we took the same auto and headed towards Meppady. It was a beautiful location. I hardly did cycling, as I wanted to make best of the landscapes around this area. We had only 1 hour in our hand, which could have been utilized either for cycling or photography. Vibha enjoyed a long cycle ride around the tea plantations. It was a lovely evening, although Muddy Boots had put the best efforts to spoil the evening.After coming back home, we resolved some of the queries by Suneesh. He wanted to download some of the softwares to manage/edit his photographs and few tips around managing his social initiatives through Facebook. Suneesh had wiki at home and we also checked pending emails for last few days.
It was another fulfilling day !

These were the coffee beans growing on the coffee trees around Treasure Trove. These bunches of coffee fruits look awesome around green plantations. 

Sometimes it helps to not do much research about your travel and stay. You open yourself to surprises. And this worked in our favor during the first few days of our stay at Wayanad. The Kerala trip started with our entry into Wayanad and stay at Treasure Trove Homestay in Meenangadi. We decided to stay at Treasure Trove for 2 nights and booked through India Untravelled . This Photo Journey shares some moments spent at Treasure Trove and our experience being there.After the bus ride from Bengaluru  we reached Sultan Battery at around 7:30pm and Sunil (our host) suggested us to take an autorickshaw from there to Meenangadi. We reached Treasure Trove at around 8pm. The above photograph shows Sunil & Reena's house in Meenangadi. Apart from this house, they have two huts inside a Coffee plantation. The very first photograph shows the hut we were staying in. we had our dinner at 8:30pm that night and Reena had cooked lovely food. The beetroot dish was new for us and it was very tasty. We had to get the recipe but missed it :). Probably we will mail Reena and request her to share the recipe on email. Reena had also cooked chapattis and we loved them. This shows how careful the hosts are about guests’ preferences. Over the dinner we chatted with Sunil and Reena about Treasure Trove, the surroundings, and what all we can do next day. We didn't have any plans at that time. Sunil and Reena were quite helpful in planning things for us and arranging an auto for us. Language is an issue in this region, and the much-needed help was always available for us there. We didn't need to worry about anything whether related to local sightseeing or transportation from Treasure Trove to our other HomeStay in Bamboo village. Reena suggested us to book an auto for the whole day for sightseeing because that would cost less as compared to hiring autos for different places. We planned for Edakkal Caves and Curuva Island. Auto for the whole day costed us 1200 Rs, which was quite reasonable.We had a beautiful room at the homestay. The above photograph doesn't do justice to the beauty of the room. The room is quite spacious with a double bed on one side and a pair of chairs with bamboo table on the other side.Apart from that there is enough space in the room to walk around. There are a few cupboards, a mirror, and an attached washroom. There was a TV inside the room, although we didn't use it much. There is a beautiful balcony at the back, which opens into the coffee plantations.In the above photograph, you can see the clean and well-fitted washroom in our room at Treasure Trove. The whole hut is very well done and offers a comfortable space to guests. We were pretty happy with the arrangements. During night it gets cold, so there were a few blankets. Apart from these blankets, we also felt the need of quilts.One of the walls inside the room is beautifully painted and I thought of capturing it in my TravellingCamera.Here is a panoramic view of balcony of the hut at Treasure Trove.There are lot of coconut trees around this homestay and interesting activities start happening early in the morning. Check out the video shared below. This garden around Treasure Trove huts has various plants/trees including black pepper, coffee, coconut, rubber trees, banana trees, and jackfruit trees etc. The above photograph shows the black pepper creeper.These were the coffee beans growing on the coffee trees around Treasure Trove. These bunches of coffee fruits look awesome around green plantations.This is the dining area of Treasure Trove. We used to have breakfast here and the dinner was always served inside the house. Both were clean and appropriate places to enjoy food. In all meals, we got different things to eat.Treasure Trove has a section full of rubber trees.Our host Sunil has also setup a small rubber production house in the farm house.

Coffee beans come out of these fruits, but further processing happens at other places which are managed by relatively bigger agencies.Before leaving for Bamboo village, we took a round of Treasure Trove and realized that most of the veggies are grown in kitchen garden except potatoes and onion, which comes from Karnataka. The above photograph shows a waste management unit, which is well utilized by Sunil and his family. Let me also share that this Homestay is maintained mostly by Reena. Sunil helps her during weekends.We loved being there at Treasure Trove and would love to visit again when we are around Wayanad region.

Our host Sunil has also setup a small rubber production house in the farm house. Some workers come to collect raw material and create rubber sheets. 

Now we had to move to another place within Wayanad. Our next home stay was in Bamboo village which is located around Thrikkaippetta. We waked up at 6:30am and went for a walk around Treasure Trove. We were surprised to see lot of action happening at 6:30am. Folks were cutting coconuts out of the trees, rubber collection had started and lot more.We hit a place with huge farming hill full of beans and coconut trees around them. Talked to our host Sunil to confirm that most of the folks in Wayanad region are into Coffee, coconut, spices, banana & other agricultural activities.After coming back from morning walk, we thought of taking another round of Treatuse Trove. It was coffee plantation, rubber trees, various varieties of flowers, jackfruit trees, different types of bamboos, which were very well maintained. We also had a look at waste management system Sunil has at his house.  And then look a round of machinery for rubber processing.While having tea, we noticed a man climbing coconut tree to cut the bunches of coconuts. He was quite quick to do all that. These coconut trees were approximately 100 feet high. Please see the video to see how these folks climb and descend from a coconut tree. After breakfast, it was time to pack our stuff and move towards our next Homestay in Wayanad only. Sunil dropped us at Bamboo village and we had some interesting conversations on the way. He told us about his daughter who is 9th standard and managing her school magazine. Recently she met DC of Wayanad for an interview and she along with her friend managed to take the appointment without any other help. He wanted to know more about Creative Writing courses planned by Vibha and wondering if she can join one of the online courses. Then we had some conversations around education system in Kerala. It seems that Government schools are becoming popular as compared to private schools now, which is probably opposite of what we have been seeing in other states. Also there is a trend shift wherein top students of a class are opting non-science subjects.It was 30-45 minutes drive from Treasure Trove to Bamboo village. Suneesh is our host at Bamboo village. There are many homestays in this village and all are run as a community.  Daniel is the lead guide of village who helps guests in planning various things around the village. After welcome drink, we planned to take a tour of the village and what all these folks have been doing for development of eco-tourism. Suneesh took us to different parts of the village and shared some of the experiences related usage of Bamboo for various things.All villagers have come together and building a bamboo town which different sized villas which would be used for tourism only. This place is located around a water body and beautifully located around hills. One of the bamboo cottage was ready and someone was already staying there. On the way, we met different villagers busy with different activities. Suneesh also took us to the local tribe who are also part of Bamboo initiatives and organization is aiming to ensure that all tribal kids are educated and become part of mainstream.After coming back home we had lunch, which was served on banana leaves. It was lovely food. Crispy fish was special for us. Complete fish was fried and we were wondering about the right way to eat these. It took some time to figure out and as per Suneesh, bones of those fish are very thin and can be eaten.After lunch, we took some rest and then went to Chundale. There is a organization called Muddy boots which organize different kinds of activities around Wayanad. We opted for cycling around tea estates in Meppady. They wasted lot of time, even when bookings were done 2 months back. They were not ready when we reached the place.  Muddy Boots team was supposed to take us to Meppady and plan the cycling. Finally we took the same auto and headed towards Meppady. It was a beautiful location. I hardly did cycling, as I wanted to make best of the landscapes around this area. We had only 1 hour in our hand, which could have been utilized either for cycling or photography. Vibha enjoyed a long cycle ride around the tea plantations. It was a lovely evening, although Muddy Boots had put the best efforts to spoil the evening.After coming back home, we resolved some of the queries by Suneesh. He wanted to download some of the softwares to manage/edit his photographs and few tips around managing his social initiatives through Facebook. Suneesh had wiki at home and we also checked pending emails for last few days.
It was another fulfilling day !

Sometimes it helps to not do much research about your travel and stay. You open yourself to surprises. And this worked in our favor during the first few days of our stay at Wayanad. The Kerala trip started with our entry into Wayanad and stay at Treasure Trove Homestay in Meenangadi. We decided to stay at Treasure Trove for 2 nights and booked through India Untravelled . This Photo Journey shares some moments spent at Treasure Trove and our experience being there.After the bus ride from Bengaluru  we reached Sultan Battery at around 7:30pm and Sunil (our host) suggested us to take an autorickshaw from there to Meenangadi. We reached Treasure Trove at around 8pm. The above photograph shows Sunil & Reena's house in Meenangadi. Apart from this house, they have two huts inside a Coffee plantation. The very first photograph shows the hut we were staying in. we had our dinner at 8:30pm that night and Reena had cooked lovely food. The beetroot dish was new for us and it was very tasty. We had to get the recipe but missed it :). Probably we will mail Reena and request her to share the recipe on email. Reena had also cooked chapattis and we loved them. This shows how careful the hosts are about guests’ preferences. Over the dinner we chatted with Sunil and Reena about Treasure Trove, the surroundings, and what all we can do next day. We didn't have any plans at that time. Sunil and Reena were quite helpful in planning things for us and arranging an auto for us. Language is an issue in this region, and the much-needed help was always available for us there. We didn't need to worry about anything whether related to local sightseeing or transportation from Treasure Trove to our other HomeStay in Bamboo village. Reena suggested us to book an auto for the whole day for sightseeing because that would cost less as compared to hiring autos for different places. We planned for Edakkal Caves and Curuva Island. Auto for the whole day costed us 1200 Rs, which was quite reasonable.We had a beautiful room at the homestay. The above photograph doesn't do justice to the beauty of the room. The room is quite spacious with a double bed on one side and a pair of chairs with bamboo table on the other side.Apart from that there is enough space in the room to walk around. There are a few cupboards, a mirror, and an attached washroom. There was a TV inside the room, although we didn't use it much. There is a beautiful balcony at the back, which opens into the coffee plantations.In the above photograph, you can see the clean and well-fitted washroom in our room at Treasure Trove. The whole hut is very well done and offers a comfortable space to guests. We were pretty happy with the arrangements. During night it gets cold, so there were a few blankets. Apart from these blankets, we also felt the need of quilts.One of the walls inside the room is beautifully painted and I thought of capturing it in my TravellingCamera.Here is a panoramic view of balcony of the hut at Treasure Trove.There are lot of coconut trees around this homestay and interesting activities start happening early in the morning. Check out the video shared below. This garden around Treasure Trove huts has various plants/trees including black pepper, coffee, coconut, rubber trees, banana trees, and jackfruit trees etc. The above photograph shows the black pepper creeper.These were the coffee beans growing on the coffee trees around Treasure Trove. These bunches of coffee fruits look awesome around green plantations.This is the dining area of Treasure Trove. We used to have breakfast here and the dinner was always served inside the house. Both were clean and appropriate places to enjoy food. In all meals, we got different things to eat.Treasure Trove has a section full of rubber trees.Our host Sunil has also setup a small rubber production house in the farm house. Some workers come to collect raw material and create rubber sheets.rubber sheets are dried in the sun and in the process get darker in colour. They are then sold to agencies, which sell them further to companies who convert them into rubber products. There are some beautiful walks around Treasure Trove and we explored most of the regions around the homestay during morning & evening walks at Meenangadi.The above photograph was clicked with my mobile during one of the morning walks around Treasure Trove in Wayanad. Treasure Trove has well maintained lawns around the huts and we had good time sitting there. After morning walk, we used to sit here for sometime. Wi-Fi is also available at Treasure Trove but it can be used around the dining region and not in the huts. 3G connection was also not working well inside the huts, but that was not a big deal for anyone who is on vacation :).

This garden around Treasure Trove huts has various plants/trees including black pepper, coffee, coconut, rubber trees, banana trees, and jackfruit trees etc. The above photograph shows the black pepper creeper.These were the coffee beans growing on the coffee trees around Treasure Trove. These bunches of coffee fruits look awesome around green plantations.This is the dining area of Treasure Trove. We used to have breakfast here and the dinner was always served inside the house. Both were clean and appropriate places to enjoy food. In all meals, we got different things to eat.Treasure Trove has a section full of rubber trees.Our host Sunil has also setup a small rubber production house in the farm house. Some workers come to collect raw material and create rubber sheets.rubber sheets are dried in the sun and in the process get darker in colour. They are then sold to agencies, which sell them further to companies who convert them into rubber products. There are some beautiful walks around Treasure Trove and we explored most of the regions around the homestay during morning & evening walks at Meenangadi.The above photograph was clicked with my mobile during one of the morning walks around Treasure Trove in Wayanad. Treasure Trove has well maintained lawns around the huts and we had good time sitting there. After morning walk, we used to sit here for sometime. Wi-Fi is also available at Treasure Trove but it can be used around the dining region and not in the huts. 3G connection was also not working well inside the huts, but that was not a big deal for anyone who is on vacation :). Panorama made through my phone during one of the morning walks around Treasure Trove in Wayanad. Coffee fruits spread in one part of Treasure Trove. Coffee beans come out of these fruits, but further processing happens at other places which are managed by relatively bigger agencies.Before leaving for Bamboo village, we took a round of Treasure Trove and realized that most of the veggies are grown in kitchen garden except potatoes and onion, which comes from Karnataka. The above photograph shows a waste management unit, which is well utilized by Sunil and his family. Let me also share that this Homestay is maintained mostly by Reena. Sunil helps her during weekends.We loved being there at Treasure Trove and would love to visit again when we are around Wayanad region.

Sometimes it helps to not do much research about your travel and stay. You open yourself to surprises. And this worked in our favor during the first few days of our stay at Wayanad. The Kerala trip started with our entry into Wayanad and stay at Treasure Trove Homestay in Meenangadi. We decided to stay at Treasure Trove for 2 nights and booked through India Untravelled . This Photo Journey shares some moments spent at Treasure Trove and our experience being there.After the bus ride from Bengaluru  we reached Sultan Battery at around 7:30pm and Sunil (our host) suggested us to take an autorickshaw from there to Meenangadi. We reached Treasure Trove at around 8pm. The above photograph shows Sunil & Reena's house in Meenangadi. Apart from this house, they have two huts inside a Coffee plantation. The very first photograph shows the hut we were staying in. we had our dinner at 8:30pm that night and Reena had cooked lovely food. The beetroot dish was new for us and it was very tasty. We had to get the recipe but missed it :). Probably we will mail Reena and request her to share the recipe on email. Reena had also cooked chapattis and we loved them. This shows how careful the hosts are about guests’ preferences. Over the dinner we chatted with Sunil and Reena about Treasure Trove, the surroundings, and what all we can do next day. We didn't have any plans at that time. Sunil and Reena were quite helpful in planning things for us and arranging an auto for us. Language is an issue in this region, and the much-needed help was always available for us there. We didn't need to worry about anything whether related to local sightseeing or transportation from Treasure Trove to our other HomeStay in Bamboo village. Reena suggested us to book an auto for the whole day for sightseeing because that would cost less as compared to hiring autos for different places. We planned for Edakkal Caves and Curuva Island. Auto for the whole day costed us 1200 Rs, which was quite reasonable.We had a beautiful room at the homestay. The above photograph doesn't do justice to the beauty of the room. The room is quite spacious with a double bed on one side and a pair of chairs with bamboo table on the other side.Apart from that there is enough space in the room to walk around. There are a few cupboards, a mirror, and an attached washroom. There was a TV inside the room, although we didn't use it much. There is a beautiful balcony at the back, which opens into the coffee plantations.In the above photograph, you can see the clean and well-fitted washroom in our room at Treasure Trove. The whole hut is very well done and offers a comfortable space to guests. We were pretty happy with the arrangements. During night it gets cold, so there were a few blankets.
