Happy Independence day & the best ever sunrise i've seen in my lifetime is at Kolukkumalai since it lies on the eastern side of the western ghats. Some photo session with my official photographer, the Simpex tripod. Had my breakfast & left for the Top station trek. Made some friends who are from Kerala. After a half hour difficult trek reached the summit, from there it's a beautiful view and Meesapulimala(second highest peak in south India) looked majestic. I hope one day i would reach the peak of Messapulimala. The descent was easy & I reached the base camp at the afternoon. Also visited the Tea factory which is the highest organic tea factory in the world. The things you buy before you leave is Tea, Tea, & more Tea. Bought lot of Tea packets & left for Suryanelli.
