2. MENMUTTY WATERFALLS

Next destination i have gone is the MEENUKUTTY WATERFALLS ,after the hillstation visit i have to drive back to reach the destination there is a checkpost where we have to fill the form of our details ,and take a entry pass of 45 rs for one person and bike ., Then we have to drive through 1km off road and there is a parking section where we have to park the vehicle and walk through 2 kms off road to reach the destination the walking is little bit difficult through the way .On the way there is guards who guide us after the heavy walking i have reached the destination the water fall is nice but there is little bit force bcoz of the season ,bathing is restricted in the waterfalls bcoz of the death of 3 people .we can bath in near the different area near the waterfalls where people come for eating food and bathing .After spending 1 hr i have left the place and drive back through home and ride 130 kms and reached home at 8:30 pm

The one day trip is memorable and it insipre me to drive more
