The lush-green town of Wayanad in Kerala is hidden in the Malabar region on the Western Ghats. Sparsely populated, the forest-covered region abounds in picturesque hills meandered with streams, tea estates, and wildlife sanctuaries.
Referred to as the ‘Spice Garden of India’, Wayanad is a hub of spices such as cardamom, star anise, fenugreek, black pepper, black cumin etc. Adding to its treasures is the Asia’s second largest and India’s largest damn, the Banasura Sagar Dam, the Edakkal Caves from the Neolithic Age to trek to. Witness a majestic sunset at the backdrop of the dam, go for hiking, mountaineering, camping or rock climbing, you’d never run out of fun activities at Wayanad

We are a group of passionate travellers who firmly believe that travel is not a luxury. Travelling is about growing up, believing in what you love and working hard enough to get it, learning and experiencing new things and constantly educating yourself. Travelling is knowing that there is no obstacle big enough in this world to stop you from being happy. Why Tripper Trails? There are hundreds of travel companies to choose from. But why go tripping with Tripper Trails? 1.Because we are ‘by travellers, for travellers’ We introduce you to the best and the off-beat places that may not be found by usual tourists. We research exclusively on the places chosen by you, consider reviews and feedback from people, especially travel bloggers who have visited the place and plan your itinerary. This way, we ensure that you do not see a picture of a place you had been to and say, “Damn, why did I not find it out earlier?” 2.You matter! You, yes, you are the priority. It’s your trip but our responsibility to ensure that you have the best tale to narrate. We customize your itinerary to suit your ways, whatever you want. You want to be on a lazy vacation or go restaurant hopping? Or trek to a far off mountain or feel your adrenaline rush? Or just explore the unexplored. All you have to do is tell us what you need and relax! We will take care of it. 3.No compromise on quality When we say travelling is not a luxury, we mean it. We don’t intend to put a dent on your pocket but that doesn’t mean we compromise with the quality. Offering the highest standards with the best possible price is simply our forte! 4.Practising what we preach! While many companies promise to revert back within 24 hours, we actually do it. Any query you have at any point of time, ask away!
It was a great experience. Our tour captain Amit was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable throughout the journey, he is extremely professional and always wants to set the bar high. It was a very well planned and organized tour. Worth every dime.
A hell of an experience travelling with Tripper trails.I enjoyed every bit of it. I went solo and met some amazing people on the trip.The trip captain, Amit is a nice guy and he makes sure you have a memorable and fun trip. He is also flexible in changing the itinerary a bit if all the travellers agree to it. I have travelled with them twice already and looking for more fun trips. Kudos to the team.

"It isn't how much time you spend in a place for sight seeing that makes it memorable, but It's how and whom you spend the time with." Just give your time and days to Tripper Trails, and they will make sure you get the best out of those. A well coordinated group of Captains leading you all along throughout, ensuring that you enjoy each second of your journey. Even though we went in a group of 3, came back in a group of 20+ taking a lot of good memories to treasure for the rest of our lives😇. Well coordinated, good hospitality, safety ensured with crazy memories, many more to say..... Thank you Captains, Mr Amit, Mr Vinay and Mr Prathik . Enjoyed the trip to its each inch. Recommending the same for anybody who seek a weekend or other trips offered by Tripper Trails.
