Made some MUSHY TEA and we tripped for some time in the homestay and enjoyed alot!!!!!!!!!!

DISCLAIMER: Grazing mushrooms arent for noobs, We showed our collected mushies to the locals and they helped in sorting out the real magic mushrooms and poisonous ones.

After five to six years of observing mushies we knew which to collect and to omit!!!

Many People have died after consuming poisonus mushrooms in kodai confusing with magic mushrooms

Grazing mushies arent suggested for everyone, just ask some experts and they will help you for some minimum amount

BE SAFE and Happy Tripping

After our Trip we were exhausted like hell with downer and we took some rest
