After reaching to our bikes, we again went to the horticulture farm to see Z point from a distance. And that is the moment we realized how big of a risk we took going there but also how it gave us a whole lot of memories to cherish.
How to reach:
If starting from Bangalore, you have to first reach Kemmangundi after which you have to take the road leading to Hebe falls. At the end of this road instead of taking a right for Hebe, go left and this road will lead you to the Horticulture farm.
In between the Hebe falls turn and horticulture farm, on one of the hairpin bends you'll see a board directing towards Z - point. From this board, instead of taking the complete hairpin go inside the jungle and follow the trail.
After this there is only one way to go and that will lead you to Z - point.
Things to carry:
1) Shoes are a must for this hike. You need as much grip on your soles as possible. The trail is very narrow and there are pebbles on the way. So get shoes with nice grip and go carefully on the trail.
2) Carry some water bottles. The point after you enter jungle is totally off charts and there is not a single sign of human life there. The trek along with the ride is going to take a total of about 3 hours so it's advisable to carry your own water bottles.
3) Camera and spare batteries. You would definitely want to capture the beauty of this place. I myself took hell lot of pictures after I got comfortable of the narrow trail and even recorded how walking on that trail felt like.
