After the monsoon showers, as the humidity slowly recedes into the cold winter, you'll find the natural landscapes and marvels still having their vibrant lustre. That is why I feel that winter is a perfect season to explore the wilderness. Especially in South India, where the cold season does not make too much of a difference in the temperatures, instead makes it an ideal destination for nature retreats. Keeping this in mind, we at Yuyiii have handpicked a few nature getaways near Bangalore this winter, just for you.

Rainforest Stay in Wayanad

As the resort lies in the middle of a rainforest, you'll hear the chirpy melodies of birds all day long. Everywhere you look- from the balconies and windows- there's lush greenery all around.

To begin with, the rooms are so amazing! They are spacious, airy and ultra-luxurious. What's more? There's no television. But don't worry, you won't find a moment of dullness at the resort. With the range of activities this place offers, you won't get even a single chance to miss the virtual screen.

Since I've mentioned the activities with such vigour, you might think I'm exaggerating. So let me help you decide for yourself.

Things To Do at this Rainforest Stay in Laikkidi

Firstly, the resort stands amidst a jungle where you'll find several known as well as undiscovered trails. You can guess how much fun it'd be to explore around this place. In addition, you might even come across birds that aren't ever seen in the cities.

If the day hiking seems so exciting, then imagine how much fun the night excursions would be. I'm not kidding. As the sun fades away, the forests become much livelier. You'll be able to spot several nocturnal species.

After the exhausting but fulfilling expeditions, reserve your evenings for a bonfire. Sitting in a circle around the flames with strangers, sharing stories and experiences seems like a good way to end the day.

And if you're worried that kids might get bored, believe me, they won't. That is because the resort understands the energetic will of children. Hence several interesting activities- bird hunt, cooking classes and interaction with nature- have been curated for them.
