We at Plan The Unplanned constantly strive to bring you destinations and experiences that hold true to the phrase ‘explore the unexplored’. As part of this endeavor, we ensure that you experience places as a traveler and our itinerary for a night trek in Wayanad stays true to that statement.
Let’s say goodbye to the mainstream ‘tourist attractions’ because let’s be honest, you don’t really need our help to visit them. We’re taking you on an adventure like never before to stunning places that are yet to make their mark even on Google. These hidden gems are guaranteed to give you an experience of a lifetime with an exciting combination of breathtaking views and adrenaline-pumping adventure that’ll leave you begging for more!
Waterfalls, river hikes, forest walks, off-road jeep rides, camping and more! Join Plan The Unplanned and explore Wayanad in its most authentic and raw self.
Following are the pick-up points:
We start off our overnight bus journey from Bangalore at 9 PM. Although we begin our adventure as a group of strangers, our trek leads have some exciting ice-breaking sessions planned that are guaranteed to turn any boring bus journey to an experience not to be missed! However, do make sure to get some sleep in between all the fun as a long and adventurous day awaits us the next day.
Wake up to the smell of lush greenery all around as you cross over to Wayanad. Our first stop for the day is at Sulthan Bathery, where we’ll have a quick freshening up and grab a hearty breakfast before setting off on our expedition for the day.
A short bus journey later, we begin our almost 10 km off-road jeep ride towards Aranamala. Rest assured, this ride will be like nothing you’ve experienced before with jaw-dropping views of the Wayanad mountain ranges on one side interspersed with thick forests and coffee plantations on the other. The journey becomes more interesting as we head higher. The air now becomes cool and crisp as we slowly make our way deeper into the forest towards our campsite for the night.
Once there, witness time slowing down as you immerse your senses to the sights and sounds of the breathtaking Aranamala forest range. We then begin our exhilarating hike towards a hidden and untouched waterfall nestled deep within the jungle. The hike, although short in distance, is packed with adventure including river crossings and forest trails. You could choose to take a dip in its freezing waters or simply soak in the view, as the chaos of the outside world slowly seeps out of your system.
Hike back to the campsite where you’ll have a warm bonfire and a sumptuous dinner waiting for you before you settle down for the evening. If you’ve never pitched a tent before, this would be a great opportunity to learn as you huddle up inside and prepare yourself for one of the best camping experiences of your life deep within the Aranamala Hills.

Travelled for the first time with them this weekend for my first trek to Wayanad. It was easy to moderate level. Loved the experience. I was traveling solo with a group of strangers but it was wonderful.
We used a tempo Traveller and jeep to cover the travel, visited two homestays, two waterfalls and did a night trek and camping. Good planning, very friendly and helpful trek leads!
Definitely recommend it and planning my next trip with them!
I went for the wayanad trek with PTU. It was my first trek and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. It was amazing. The trek leads Lahar and Abhilash were really supportive and encouraging. The whole team was super fun. Overall it was a really nice experience and I would 10/10 recommend everyone to go for a trip with PTU
Wayanad, the waterfalls, the sunrise, the sunset , the food ….there are just way too many things to love about the place. To top it all off , Plan The Unplanned was the right choice for this one of a kind night trekking experience. The trip started off from Bangalore at around 11pm. We had a great ice breaking session in the TT so that we got comfortable with each other. We reached wayanad early in the morning , freshened up and started off our adventure for the day. We visited three waterfalls, two of which had pure drinking water which we could actually drink. The third waterfall was one of the biggest highlights for me. Aranamala waterfalls- it was beautiful and the best part was that we could play n swim in the ice cold water. The adrenaline rush that you get when you stand under the strong force of the gushing waterfall is completely fabulous. A short Jeep ride from there and we arrived at the sunset point which was beautiful with all of the wonderful colours playing around in the sky. At the homestay ,we had campfires at night where we got together ,sang songs, danced all around and had loads of fun. After dinner , we began our night trek. Within about 45 minutes we reached the base camp where we spent some time relaxing and star gazing. The night sky was lit up with stars unlike the ones we are used to in cities like Bangalore. We had another one of those fun campfires and we signed off for the night and got cozy in our sleeping bags. We woke up to a mesmerizing sunrise. Staring at the sun slowly light up the entire sky was amazing. We started our summit trek and clicked loads of pictures along the way. The view from the top was breathtaking. We came back to the homestay, freshened up and had some tasty breakfast. We visited the Karapuzha backwaters and also banasura dam.
The entire experience with PTU was filled with excitement, happiness and loads and loads for fun. The trek leader Naveen and Ajay were very friendly and cheerful. One of the best trips. I highly recommend Plan The Unplanned.
Had been to Wayanad night trek & camping with PTU on the last week of December. Hadn’t heard of them until my friend shared a link and asked to tag along. But came back with a very pleasant experience. Special shout out to Ajay and Pooja who were the trek leaders without whom it wouldn’t have been so much fun! I will definitely trek with PTU in future!
I went to Wayanad Trip with Plan the Unplanned. I must say, it was a wonderful experience. I travel a lot but, I never thought that Travelling with a group of unknown people, would be so much fun.
But, my special thanks to Plan The Unplanned Team, especially the Outdoor leaders who made sure, that each and every person in the group was comfortable.
