Welcome to TA and Wayanad!

via Nagarhole is the shortest route.. If you take through bandhipur, approx 50 km is additional.

Hi

If you are coming from Bangalore to Wayanad, Nanjangud-Gundalpet-Sulthan Bathery road is in good condition. If you are specifically going to Manatavady, other route will be shorter.

Bandipur will be slight deviation if you come via Gundalpet, instead of taking right turn for Wayanad you can go in Ooty direction. For morning jungle safari, reach by 0630 h and afternoon by 1430 h.

Regards

Sam

To reach Meppadi, no need to go through Gudalur. The shortest route is Gundelpet-Muthanga-Sulthan Bathery-kalpetta-Meppadi

or

Gundelpet-Muthanga-Sulthan Bathery-Ambalavayal-Vaduvanchal-Meppadi.

Hello,

(I know I am late on this one, but it may help others who are planning to come to Mananthavady)

Mananthavady is in the North of Wayanad and Batherry is in the South. Rather than coming from Bangalore, driving all the way to Batherry and then come all the way up to Mananthavady, you may want to consider avoiding Batherry and coming directly to Batherry.

I drive almost on a weekly basis from Bangalore to Mananthavady, the route I "always" take is the one via Hunsur. Bangalore-Mysore-Hunsur-Nagarahole-Kutta-Kartikulam-Mananthavady. The road inside the National Park is not great, motor-able though. It'd take you 5 hours to cover the 240-odd KMs.

Drive safe

Regards

Anil
