I was in Chennai while pursuing my Degree in Psychology. While being there I have explored most of the part of the city life and weekend getaways like Pondicherry and Mahabalipuram. Though these places were satisfactory, deep down I always had this urge to visit mountains again as I use to do back at my home town Delhi.
To be honest in the beginning I was skeptical about mountain ranges in South India because I already was in love to the ranges of Himalayas in North, I was a big-time advocate of those beautiful hills in Uttarakhand and Himachal region.
So… here is my story from Just A Hill Away,
NOTE: The following travel journal was planned on “A low budget” due to traveler’s personal choice, hence minimal luxury but un-compromised safety were essential elements of this trip.
1. Pre-booked train tickets in a General compartment (As I was going towards the mountains AC was not required). Travel time was almost 9hrs.
2. Pre-booked a verified hotel (3-star) through a third-party booking website. I prefer sharing rooms as it saves expenses.
3. Minimal luggage (depending upon the weather)
