One day outing was organized by few of our colleagues towards Kerala. It was the month of December & the work pressure was also less and we got enough time to discuss & finalize the places to visit. The places shortlisted were Wayanad (Edakkal caves, Meenmutty Falls & one more place nearby, Kerala.
A Swaraj Mazda mini bus was booked & the trip started on 24th Dec 2010 early morning by 5:30 AM. We were totally 22 members. It was a cold morning & all gathered near the office. As usual we performed pooja to the bus & wished for a safe journey. The journey started via the Bogadi ring road connecting the Nanjangud road towards Kerala. It was really cold morning.
We had our breakfast at Gundulpet. It was a big disappointment for us on reaching the Edakkal caves, as the road towards Edakkal caves was not good for any vehhttp://blog.infomazetech.comicles &http://192.168.1.25/infomazeblogamp; the road was blocked. We then headed towards the Meenmutty falls in between the lush green forest reserved areas. On reaching the place there was house cum restaurant where we ordered for food for the afternoon. We again walked for 2 KM approx in between the tea estate. We had to go deep into the forest to reach the falls, we could hear the sound of the falls & really the trekking was memorable. The water flow was very high & the forest guards’ dint allows us the go to the water, as it was really very dangerous. We again climbed up to reach the top of the forest & went to have food. It was really very good food.
Near to the Meenmutty falls there was one more water falls where we played in water & was really enjoying. It was around 6 in the evening when we came to the highway towards Mysore. We had some snacks & coffee, the return journey started again. It was around 9 in the night we were near our office.
It was really beautiful trip, thanks to the organizers & all other who were a part of the outing.
