Our centre is located in South Wayanad in a village named Puthurvayal, which is about 4 km away from Kalpetta town towards Meppady in Vythiri Taluk. The Wayanad district lies in the trans-state corridor of the country, and is bounded on the north by Kodagu district (Karnataka state), the east by Mysore district (Karnataka state) and Nilgiri district of Tamil Nadu state, on the south by Malappuram district, and Kozhikode district and on the west by Kozhikode district and Kannur districts of Kerala. Accessing from Calicut, which takes about 2 hrs from the Railway station and three hours from the Airport, is an easier option for those who come from the southern side of Kerala. From Mysore, it takes about 3.5 hours by road to reach CAbC-office.
