Wayanad set for monsoon tourism fest

Splash, a three-day ‘monsoon tourism carnival’ that aims to sell Wayanad as a major monsoon tourism destination in the country, will begin at Kalpetta on Saturday.

The Wayanad Tourism Organisation, who organises the carnival, feels that since heavy rains have been forecast, the visitors would be able to experience firsthand the charms of rain-soaked Wayanadan mountains.

Splash, an innovative event to showcase Wayanad, which is a popular tourist destination, is into its fifth edition this year.

K.R. Vancheeswaran, secretary general of WTO, told Business Line that the event would have fun, field trips, adventure sports and B2B meetings.

He said nearly 300 buyers (travel industry professionals, organisations and agents) and 80 sellers (owners of resorts, homestatys and hotels) would attend the B2B meetings. The buyers, who come from all over India, will visit most of the properties (resorts etc) as well as the destinations.
