As part of the winter ride I did last year in December, we visited several awesome and cold places. One such place was Vagamon and we had to ride from Kolukkumalai. We left from the highest tea estate in the world and began our ride towards Vagamon.

We then rode for a few more hours and after non-stop winding roads uphill in absolute darkness and in the midst of tall trees, we reached. I couldn't see a thing since it was pitch dark. The place where the tents were going to be pitched had 1 spot light and that was it. It wasn't very cold and we instantly got down to unpacking and setting up the tents.An hour later, we had pitched all our tents and our hosts even gave us a few thick rugs for the night. I looked at my friend as he held the rugs and laughed. It wasn't cold at all; probably just a little cooler than Bangalore in winter and he had himself one thick rug with his brand new blanket.We all made a quick dinner, some rice and curry and some chicken, and while the others wanted to sit by the edge of the mountain to drink and take in the cool air, I wanted to sleep it off. It had been a long winding ride and I we had plans the next day to do some off-roading. I pulled my rug over me and to this day, I think I've had one of the best sleeps in that tent.

Weekend Getaways from Suryanelli  

Best time to visit - January,September,October,November,December
About 100kms west of Mysore, the hilly hamlet of Kodagu (formerly known as Coorg) is located in the evergreen highlands of the Western Ghats. This charming district beckons tourists with its spice gardens, cardamom forests and a sea of coffee plantations. Travel to Coorg for the wide array of adventure activities. Raft through the white rapids of the Barapole river, trek across the grasslands of the Kopatty-Kalugundi trail or quad biking through the Chevalara falls. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, fishing at the Valnoor and Bheemeshwari fishing camps or simply wandering through coffee plantations are some of the most sought after things to do in Coorg. The 17th century Madikeri Fort where the revered Tipu Sultan once held court, and the Omkareshwar temple are among the most famous attractions of the district’s headquarters in Madikeri. While you are here, also visit Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, the largest Tibetan settlement of south India. Go here for a pleasant evening intermittent with monastic hymns, prayer bells and a motley of Tibetan handicrafts.

About Suryanelli

It was evening by the time we reached our lovely home stay nestled in the valley of Suryanelli Hills, 18 kms from Munnar.. We checked in and after a rejuvenating cup of tea headed to the Anayirangal Dam. As soon as we took the turn into the road that led to the dam we were stopped by some forest rangers and asked to head back. The reason being some 6-8 wild elephants that were spotted on the opposite side of the road. We clicked them from a far before heading back with mixed feelings -- happy to see the wild elephants but disappointed that we were unable to go to the dam. However we managed to enjoy its scenic beauty from the top.
