Trip to Waynad - Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We left on Sat morning from Mysore. We reached a place called Sultan Bathery. We packed something for lunch here as we wouldn’t get anything good further. We went to a Jain temple. This was pretty small and wasn’t in a very good condition. Very ancient temple. There was supposed to be a tunnel from this temple to Mysore palace it seems. Something like secret passage. Hehe.

Then our guide said food was packed so we all left from that place, in 15-20 mins we reached a different place [can’t remember place names – a bit difficult to pronounce them]

Here we were supposed to trek and in between we would come across Edakkal cave. We trekked for half an hr and found a place to have our lunch. I went up only till the cave; the view from there was amazing, excellent. I and one more person opted not to go further. I was feeling very giddy so dint want to climb more. So we just sat outside the cave [well the specialty of the cave was – it was one rock split into 2 and there is one rock which looks as if its stuck in between the other 2].

We sat there for half an hr. it was extremely lovely. It was so silent that I could hear only birds chirping once in a while. And the view was mind blowing.

Well we then came back to our van after an hr or a little more than that…

After this our plan was to go to “Meenmutty Waterfall”

Well we had again walk a lot for this up n down. But when we finally reached the falls it was amazing. We were standing in front of the falls and surrounded by hills. It was just gr8 feeling. Some of the guys went to play in the water. We just kept our feet in water and it was so refreshing. After spending half an hr there [couldn’t spend more time as it was getting dark and guide said it was not a very safe place. It seems ppl had caught around 13 king cobras there. I also wanted to catch one hehe] we headed towards our next destination. That was our hotel. It was kind of resort. We reached there had bath, had dinner, played few games, had camp fire, danced till 11.30. None of us had energy to dance but still dint want to miss out the fun.

Then went back to our rooms at around 12.30.

After this we dint have the energy to do anything. Just lied down on the bed and that’s it – ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

On Sunday I woke up at 6.30 [we were supposed to have coffee at 6.30 and get ready by 7.45 for breakfast – most of them opted to skip the coffee hehe. I also thought to do the same but then somehow woke up]

I was in the balcony[coffee was being served in the first floor where we could have a nice view and it was a common sit out] and was sipping hot coffee and could see fog. It was such a beauty. Well I spent half an hr there. Had 2 cups of coffee and was talking over there. Then it was 7 and I realized that I had to take bath and then my roomie also had to get ready so went to my room. By 7.45 both were ready and we went for bf.

Well we had a kerala breakfast – “pattu” and “appam”. It was good. Not that I loved the food. But it wasn’t bad.

Then we had some snaps and finally left from the hotel.

We were heading towards “Pookot Lake” but anyway that got cancelled and we were going to “Kuruva Dweep”. By the name u can assume that this is an island [dweep]. Well it’s an island coz it’s surrounded by the “Kabini” river. We had to cross the river and in a place water was very less so we could cross it on foot. Well the island had trees, trees and only trees Well I climbed one of the trees and got a snap too .

Then we went boating in the river. It was not the normal boating. Instead of the boat it was a raft. It was really good as our raft was half the time about to sink [I really felt I was gonna drown]. After all monkey pranks over there we left from that place. After this it was journey back to Mysore. But in the bus too we had lot fun. Played antakshari, played pranks over each other. We even made a paper crown, whoever was sleeping we kept the crown on their head and took a snap. Well finally we were back to Mysore by 6 in the evening.

Well after that I took rest then went out for an hr. Then slept off by 9.30 or 10. Well that’s it. This was my looooooooooong story about my short trip.

Combined with the snaps, your travellogues seem to be a really useful guide to south india.
