Neatly tucked away in a five-acre coffee plantation are charming wooden cottage tents and wooden suites; an inviting place to be miles away from anywhere of consequence. Hemmed by the elephant corridor on one side and the thick foliage of the forest on the other, Pugmarks Jungle Lodge is Wayanad’s very own nature retreat where being amidst nature is just a way of living.

Trying to recreate the essence of being close to nature, the five acres of landscaped coffee plantation are adorned with quaint wooden and tented cottages.

The lodges have been built utilizing ethnic materials and the skill of local craftsmen. Classic hand carved wooden furniture, custom made bedding, which took the seven craftsmen more than twenty days to make, and modern bath facilities sum up the accommodation facilities at Pugmarks Jungle Lodge. Pugmarks also has a Wi-Fi connection.

Program

Day 1

  • 14:00 Check in, settle down, and freshen up
  • 15:30 Gear up for a trip to Tholpetty Wildlife Sanctuary which is 20 minutes from Pugmarks (the earlier the better as the ticket counter closes by 5:00 p.m. and being blockaded by elephants on the road is quite a possibility)
  • 19:00 For those who are up for more adventure, sign up for an evening safari through Thirunelli Temple Road or spend some time on a machan watch tower
  • 20:00 Relax by the warmth of the campfire for dinner

Day 2

  • 09:00 After a fill of sumptuous breakfast, leave for Kuruva Dweep which is 15 minutes from Pugmarks. Don’t forget to pick up your camera as the morning light is just ideal for shutterbugs. An eco-walk through the tiny islands of Kuruva Dweep takes three to four hours.
  • In the afternoon, you can choose any of the scenic or historic sites of Wayanad which include Pookot Lake, Banasurasagar Dam, Pazhassi Tomb, Edakkal Caves, Thirunelly Temple, the bamboo world of Uravu, and the many waterfalls. Most of these sites are within a one-hour drive from Pugmarks.

Day 3

  • Relax and enjoy the morning plowing with water buffaloes in the traditional way or visit tribal villages and farms
  • 12:00 Check out

Location

Nestled against the mighty Western Ghats, at the southern tip of the Deccan Plateau, the untamed beauty of Wayanad never once fails to amaze. At altitudes ranging from 700 to 2,100 meters above sea level, the land is picture perfect with its undulating hillocks, lush evergreen forests, and verdant coffee and spice plantations in the hills. The district is said to derive its name from the vast expanse of paddy fields (vayal) which cover the land (naadu).

Spread across 2,132 square kilometers, Wayanad is said to have shied away from the effects of civilization, holding intact its pristine beauty. The verdant hills border Madumalai in Tamil Nadu and Bandipur on one side and the Tholpetty Wildlife sanctuary and Nagarhole on the other side, forming one of the largest masses of land inhabited by wildlife in the country, some of the flora and fauna endemic to the region.
