Day started with a great Tea. Our target to cover was chembra peak, sochipara waterfalls. Both being around 25 km from our location. We left for Chembra Peak around 7 am. It was 8 kms. The road is not much good. So if you driving better take a bike with more than 200 cc or a jeep. At the entry point you will get tickets to enter the chembra forest range. If you want to trek you need to reach by 6 am at the location, since only 200 tickets are given. One batch consists of 10 people. The ticket gets over very quickly, so you need to be very lucky and quick. However if you don't get the tickets to trek the whole peak, you can still get ticket to view point which is available throught the day. The view point is around 2 kms. It's full of amazing views. Do give a try.
Around 11 am we left for Sochipara waterfalls. Around 13kms from chembra. The route to sochipara is very scenic, full of coffee plantations, curve roads. You need to walk around 1 kms up and down to the falls. If you intend to take a bath you can do. It's allowed. There is an entry fee. 59 Rupees per adult. The towels and clothes are also available at the location if you forgot to carry with you. Recommended is go with bike, easy to reach .But not less than 200 cc
