Rayikal? Heard of it? Me never!!!
When I damn needed a serious break and want to roam around, found this insanely beautiful awesome adventurous place!! And all of it started out of nowhere.
Though the thought of trip was finalized, couldn't figure out on the place. And then after little research and stuff, finally found out about Raikal and thought this might be a btr place considering it is somewhat close to nature..
And without keeping much hopes on the excitement part, quickly decided to move ahead.
So Packed a pair of clothes and essentials and kick started the trip on bike. It was little cloudy and sunny with decent weather and temperature. Halted in couple of places to get some snacks and bananas for lunch.
On the way to the Raikal, gave lift to a localite who was going back to his village. Though I heard a few things about Raikal before setting off, it was all about the waterfall and nothing more. So out of curiosity, I started asking him about the place and how good that place is. He said a lot 'about the history, how the word about Raikal got out, how frequently the visitors are and ...' which all seemed regular. But after all these, he did say one thing "once you visit Raikal, you will surely come back for it again at least 10 more times". Haha, Yeah, though it was little over exaggeration, I now seriously started wondering about it whether it creates that much impact. But still keeping my excitement and expectations in bound, moved ahead and dropped him at his village. And then he gave me the directions along the solar plant setup, and road after that. So when I started to finally make the last turn to raikal, it was around 2kms for vehicles plus half a km for trek to reach the final destination. Instead of trekking, I opted for off-road on bike and it turned out to be a pretty decent one.
