It was around 3 pm, we reached here. The sight of the cold water flowing nearby was a relief to both our minds and thirst. After quenching our thirst, we attacked our packed lunch. Once we were done with lunch, we started to pitch our tents. The camping spot was chosen across the river, on the hilltop. We had to cross the river and climb a pretty steep slope to get there. After we were done with the pitching of tents and collecting some firewood for the night, we changed into our bathing clothes and headed towards the waterfalls. The view of the Bandaje falls from the top was truly majestic. How a small river transforms into this roaring, gushing, sparkling waterfalls is a sight to behold and worth the trek.
When we had soaked in this amazing view of the falls and western ghats enough, we headed towards the area where we got into the water and played like little kids. After washing away all our tiredness and being in the water to our heart's content, we headed up towards our camping spot to change into dry clothes and enjoy the sunset. Sadly, due to clouds we were not able to see the sunset. We chose a spot next to our tents for the campfire and heating up the water we will use for cooking. After some light-hearted chats and amateur dancing, we prepared our dinner. I don't know whether it was my hunger or bisibele bhath was actually that tasty, but I enjoyed it along with the interesting conversations going on around the campfire. We retired to our tents for some much-needed sleep, calling it a night.
