We could only see mobile light at a far distance and nothing was visible even at 2 feet away from where we were standing. It was pitch dark and we could only hear the sound of waves hitting the rocks. We were panic-stricken. The clock had struck 9 pm. Both of us switched on our mobile torches and started walking, remembering the landmarks like Hansel and Gretel. So, a quick advice, carry your torch if you are traveling at such late hours. We finally reached 'La Pizzeria' and then found the flight of stairs. We headed forward in full speed, fingers crossed and lips whispering the chant we knew. I don't know why my friend asked me this question while I was trying to catch up with her - "Nikhita, can you see anything at all behind you?" ..And like a fool, I did turn and look...Guys, don't ever turn back, even when somebody asks you to do it. Trust me! It was like I was walking with my eyes closed. I turned back immediately and held her hand.By that time, I had lost my breath and we were fear struck and it was written all over my face. With the crickets making noises, the only other sound I could hear the beat of my heart. Finally, we made it to the top, took a deep breath, found the first and the only street light in that area. That's the time we lowered our pace as we walked into our hotel's gate. And the moment we entered, there was a cloud burst. Such was this 'Famous Five' Adventure. Soon, we hit the pool and took our portable speakers. Okay, the food at Kudle Beach is not that remarkable. So, I did rather prefer you guys to either eat @ a nearby shack or get it packed. That night, we let loose and let our blood fill with C2H6O. Clock struck 1 am that morning and we couldn't stay away from our fluffy pillows.
The next day, after having our buffet breakfast (included), we hurried downstairs, changed and were all set to go to our next destination, Yana Caves and Jog falls. We started at 10:30 am from our hotel and as per the taxi driver, we would be only able to reach back at the hotel by 7:30 pm. So guys, if you're planning to visit these places, head early as it takes 2 hours to reach Yana Caves from Kudle Beach and then 45 minutes to spend some time at the location. Then, another 1 hour to reach Jog Falls plus 45 mins to spend there and finally head back to the resort which takes another 3 hours. Also, we couldn't include Vibhooti Falls+Unchalli falls in this plan due to insufficient knowledge. So, a heads up guys, club Yana+Jog+Unchalli+Vibhooti falls together and start early. On that day, we skipped lunch and took some tit-bits and booze in our car so that we don't lose time.
