Surrounded by dense forest and tea plantations, the sights from the Golden Peak at Ponmudi are astonishing. Long grass and small protruding rocks add to the beauty of the peak. The clouds swoop in and out in quick succession leaving you content and in awe. We spent some time until the peak was closed for the day and we were driven back to Trivandrum. We had some beers at a bar and ate some lovely chicken and mutton dishes at the famous Buhari hotel well past midnight.
