'The woods are lovely, dark and deep', wrote Robert Frost in his poem 'Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening'. These lines would fit Bavali, a sleepy little village in the Kerala – Karnataka border perfectly. Situated in Wayanad, Bavali is one of those villages that retains its rustic charm. As you drive through, it is but normal to make a pit stop at Bavali. See life passing by.
The Kabini river that flows through Bavali plays an important role in the life of the villagers. It is their means of conveyance and for some – their livelihood.
Bavali is a village. Rolling paddy fields, other crops depending on the weather. Life moves on in a systematic way at this border town.
The roads pass through the forests in Wayanad and if you are in luck you may catch a herd of elephants or other wildlife while you pass through it.
A drive through Bavali is beautiful – and relaxing. Would you like to do it this weekend?
