After having the delicious pongal on the festival day, the trip to "The Destination" began.
Things were packed and loaded into the car, it was around 12 o clock when we finally hit the road. The road till Pollachi was good with amazing scenary. It was around 4pm when we reached Aliyar dam (foot hills of Valparai). We proceeded towards the check-post. After the formalities and a short photo break we began our hill drive. It was a treat to eyes from the start, there were 40 hairpin bends with beautiful views. For about 20 kms we had an amazing view of the dam( though water was less!!) And for the remaining 20 kms it was tea plantation. Around 6 pm we reached Valparai and went to the hotel.
After dinner we had a small walk, the climate was pleasant with chill breeze.
