Next day i.e 30.09.17 we have wake up early morning and fresh up and came out the resort and we could see the sunrise. It was wonderful and elegant. We were in the upper on the mountain and the sunrise is in between in the mountains in our opposite side.
We took photos and moved towards to the Magamalai.
We drove our vehicle about 10 km to Magamalai. On the way, we have seen thick forest with tall of trees (sunlight has been arrested), Tea estates, Waterfalls, thrilling curves and roads covered with clouds etc. At the entrance of the Magamalai we could see the
old reservoir named as HIGHWAVYS DAM which was built in earlier.
Excellent locations WOW!!!! What a SCENIC PLACE .... VIRGIN MOUNTAINS !!!!!!
UNTOCUHED BY COMMERICALS !!
Then having booked breakfast in the mess, we started the day trip at 8 AM; towards the final tip of Megamalai – Eravangalar dam . We were directed jeep drive towards to go through the banks of the river, as there was muddy road , which was totally damaged due to
rain . What a scenic drive ! Saw Manalar dam on the way. After a 90 mins drive, we reached Eravangalar Dam. YES ! We saw Heaven for some minutes ! Mild sunshine for 2 mins, sudden heavy rain for few mins, slight drizzle for few mins, heavy clouds for few mins, slight
clouds and mild drizzle for few mins, and sunshine is back !On the way to tip of meghamalai we have enjoyed our sightseeing of Magamalai Tea estates,( There few large private tea, spices and coffee plantations all around, notable include The
Highwavys Estates owned by The Woodbriar Group, Ananda Plantations).An artificial lake and plenty of scope for making leisurely walks Magamalai falls, Village sanctuary ,
Magamalai Dam and Manaloor scenic view . At the tip of the magamalai (view point) we could see VarasaNadu Ariel View Highwavys is a view point that will afford a wonderful view of the entire mountains range of Varusanadu Hills. This location is very dangerous and famous for cinema suiting spot.
Then we had returned to Megamalai Gust house for our lunch.Neary by Megamalai town panchayet, the home restaurant/ Tea shop/Grocery shop run by one Mr. Muruganand his family prepare all types of food on demand. The family is very attached to the tourists and treats everyone very caring. They have all types of Grocery, Cool drinks, cigarettes etc. After completing our food we went leisure walks around the Magamalai village . It was
amazing as I have never experienced such a wonderful soothing climate anywhere in Tamilnadu. The place was indeed a Hidden Paradise. Since it remains unexplored by mass
population the hill stands unpolluted both in nature and culture. No garbages, no plastic covers, no uncleared dustbins, no hard sellers, no bargains, no bitches, no pimps and no worries. We walk around thick and dense forest and here and there was symptom of elephant
movement as we could see dung However a 5 Km walk (Trekking, you may say it) from the Guest House all along the mountain (from its one side to the other) would not only take you through the nurtures of the nature (most probably you could watch Elephants in families. I was supposed to witness only their fresh dungs all along the way) but also take you to the Dam which stores water for the production of electricity. The end of the day again we had a fresh up with cup of coffee in magamalai and back to our Guest house for night stay.
