In the deep reaches of Wayanad in Kerala, there is a lush green paradise where adventure meets serenity. With its towering trees, rolling hills and canopy of clouds, 900 (Thollayiram) Kandi in Wayanad is an enchantress. Here, you just waltz into the sky! At 900 Kandi, the magic begins.
900 Kandi has a rare mystery to it. For those with a head for heights, this is the place to be. 900 acres is just unspoiled greenery. The adventure zone created in the midst of the woods offers you a plethora of adrenaline-triggering activities. The journey begins with an off-road trip, taking you on a whirlwind of a ride through the woods. En route, you chance upon glorious waterfalls, bewitching swamps, and angelic locations. After a ride, weaving through the mystic woods, you reach the seat of adventure.
The glass bridge at this spot is noted for the skywalk it offers. It lets you walk right into the sky and stare into the panoramic tapestry of blue and green. The walk is itself a heady experience and for those few minutes when you are on the glass bridge, you feel truly one with Nature. If you are still up for an adventure, you must amble up the magnificent treehouse that looks as if it scrapes the sky.

Aurah is the perfect example of 'If you want something, do it yourself. We love a good power yoga session and grabbing some smoothie bowls after. If there is some music to vibe with it, even better! Where can we do this in Cochin with like-minded people was the question? To no one's surprise, we drew a blank. When a google search for a wellness retreat showed the nearest one to be 500kms away, we knew we had to make it happen ourselves. So here we are with Aurah, the Sunday Social we all deserve".
