This place is in Kerala. We all heard that Kerala is the Gods own country. We felt it when we entered the Kerala through Bandipura forest. We reached the state border check post around 6am. It was full misty environment. We paid 1800/- interstate road tax and persuade our journey towards Sulthan Bathery.
We paid 30/- per head near Minamutti and head towards the falls. Mathew guided us towards topmost point of falls through a short cut route.
The path we were moving was surrounded by greenery and every one of us was enjoyed a lot. We found two small water falls.
Before moving towards the third point, we ate banana and biscuits we bought.
After taking a little rest we spent by chatting with cottage owner and family. We learnt some Malayalam words with the help Shobin (Son of cottage owner) and teach him some Kannada words.
We finished our dinner (it was not so good) and started climbing towards tents in the tea plantation area. We spent some time with chatting. I laughed like any thing when Kalleshi got scared by a noise.
We went to Edakallu Gudda. Two caves are there . It’s 15 KM from Sulthan Bathery. From parking place to caves we walked around 1.5 km. Transport facility is there to one who does not want to walk. For 6 persons they will charge 70/- .The entry fees for caves is Rs 10/- per person and for camera its Rs 25/-.
There are two caves in this place. First cave is at the entrance. It is not so big. I thought caves means deep darkness. I was wrong. Sufficient light helps you to view each rock of the cave. In second cave the different drawings were engraved. From these caves we started climbing the hill. It was little bit difficult to reach the top of the hill, but Vijay and Guru reached the top. We stopped climbing one step before reaching the top. It was great experience to see from the top of the hill.
It will be good if you visit this place in the mornig time.
From Edakallu Gudda we left to Karapuzha River, we swim there and some of us (nayak, harish and me) get hurt by the rocks in the river while swimming.
We finished our lunch and moved towards our next place Soochipara falls. It was an hour journey from Karapuzha River. We reached the destination around 4.30pm and started walking towards the falls. It was a beautiful, natural spot to enjoy the beauty of nature.
While coming back from this falls sun was punching out and was eager to take rest. The sunset was simply superb.
We planned our next trip on May 1st to Dhandeli. Don’t know whether we could make this one or will change the spot again …. :)
