Heading out from Bangalore to Wayanad-Weekend Trip

After a lot of running around to finalize the place and then getting this settled for a weekend trip, i am all set to head out for Wayanad. Excited about the trip and looking forward to my experience of Kerela, where Wayanad lies as the border district with karanataka & Tamil Nadu.
Few initial inputs during my course of booking tickets and finding other details.
1, Kerela buses are also running under the name of KSRTC which actually makes you run to the Karnataka state online reservations and their counters throughout Bangalore city. But please take care, it is Kerela State transport and they do not have any such counters and do not offer online booking too. Their counter is at Majestic and opens 6:30 morning. There are some good options of buses available for anywhere in state of Kerela, but somehow for a weird reason, they make full trip bookings even when you may be getting down quite before the last stop. I could not understand the reason for that. Though they have good available services to Wayanad, Calicut, ernakulam and other parts of the state.
2, There are lot of private buses plying on the route of Bangalore to Wayanad but the feedback i got from some of my friends from Kerela was that most of them would ditch or don't offer service better than state transport buses. So its better to book the state transport AC or super fast buses or go with only a trusted travels (some suggested names were Shama Travels, Kallada Travels for travel to wayanad district).

Shall be back with the trip details soon..
