Monsoon is the ultimate time to be trekking and dripping in the beauty of Southern India. All the ghats and hills wakes up to the tune of this fine spell. Which is why we decided to go on an adventure to a lesser known place; Kookal (Kukkal).
Lokith sent out a communication to the Bangalore Trekking Club (BTC) fraternity of a lesser explored trekking to a village called Kukkal, near Kodaikanal. Frankly, I didn't have much idea about it nor ever heard of it. But then what's the fun of going to an already explored and documented trail. With that dose of expectation I signed up. The pictures and itinerary was too intimidating not to go along.
We all squared up at the usual place, Shantala Silks at Majestic, Bengaluru. After a quick round of introductions (the BTC way) it was bedtime, for it was pouring outside.
