Got new friends through Zostel and went for sightseeing in Ooty at 14°c. Ooty is situated at an elevation of 2240 m (7,347 feet) above sea level in the Nilgiri mountain range. It has wide array of sightseeing places to admire. Due to the short time, I went for few places such as Lovedale view point, Ketti valley, Ooty 9th hill view point etc. in Ooty.
Then Journey starts to Mudumalai National Park, 42kms away from Ooty. This place is wonderful for nature lovers, bird watchers and wildlife photographers. Mudumalai National Park supports an astounding variety of fauna & flora. Staying facility is also available in mudumalai forest, but you should book before a month.
I spotted few bonnet macaques, langurs, wild boar, Indian bison, spotted deer and sambar deer. Seeing those wild animals without a cage is a really marvelous experience.
Whenever I planned for a road trip, I imagined for a road that has no traffic, no crowds and pleasant weather like in the movies. In reality, God has other plans for me. But Mudumalai to Sulthan Bathery is a route I dreamed of. We can ride there in pretty forest roads with an enchanting surroundings without a honking sounds. I searching for an elephant & tiger throughout the route, my bad I found only the elephant poops.
Oh wait, God fulfilled my thoughts this Time. Luckily I spotted a tiger in Bandipur tiger reserve forest. But it's not a happy moment as I thought, my heart was pumped more than my motorcycle engine. Fastest Animal can reach me in no time, so I planned to move & enjoying “Live the Moment” experience in my Life.
Later I reached Wayanad at around 5:00pm, I already booked a Zostel, Kalpetta. Kalpetta is a mountainous region of Wayanad. It's not a better idea to drive after 5:00pm because of those curvy mountain roads. But I don't have other options, I must go. It took nearly 2hrs for a 28km drive.
Route: Ooty - Gudalur - Mudumalai tiger reserve - Gundlupet - Bandipur tiger reserve - Muthanga - Sultan Bathery
