Manandhavady: To experience the surreal beauties of hilly terrains and lush green forests in Wayanad, book a seat in the morning safari package offered by Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) under the budget tourism initiative.
On Wednesday morning, KSRTC conducted its first Jungle Safari trip from Mananthavady, with all 49 seats booked on the bus.
Last year, KSRTC launched its first Jungle Safari trip in Wayanad from Sultan Bathery depot. Unlike the Safari offered from Mananthavady depot, the bus departs from Sultan Bathery depot only at night instead of morning hours. Even so, KSRTC earned around Rs 10 lakh in revenue from this project. The reception prompted KSRTC to launch a forest safari trip in the morning hours.
The Jungle Safari trip from Mananthavady depot starts at 5:30 am and returns by 9:30 am. The bus passes through Baveli, Thollpetty and Thirunevelli. A ticket costs Rs 300.
To book tickets from Mananthavady: 7560855189, 9446784184, 9496343835.
