Day 1

My birthday is in two days and what better gift can one ask for than a family trip.

We left for Kolli hills late this afternoon from Coimbatore. It's a beautiful hill station in Namakkal district. The Kolli Malai ghat road has 70 continuous hair pin bends. Stayed the night at Silverline Retreat hotel.

Day 2

Woke up early this morning and trekked to a nearby hill. The view was beautiful. One would find pepper farms and paddy fields on either sides of the road, which is a treat to the eyes. We also saw a few siddhars collecting medicinal herbs.

Returned to the hotel,freshened up and left to visit the Agaya Gangai waterfalls after a light breakfast. The Agaya Gangai falls is situated near the Arapaleeshwar temple. We climbed down about a 1000 steps from the temple to reach the falls. It was totally worth it.

There a few Siddhar caves surrounding forests. One can trek to these caves , but I do not recommend them because they are infested with snakes.
