my first resolution for 2020 is travel as many as places bcz travel memories is the only memories we never regret and forget it stays near to heart.
so my search has begin where to go and what to do , then i thought let me explore vizianyanagaram which is near to my city .
traveling to Vizianyanagaram is too easy we can go by bus , train , and by road .. ( by flight u cant 😂😂)
so me and my friend planned road trip ( on bike ) at early morning for ramatheertham trekking , kumili visit and ramanarayanam
we have started at 4.am in morning , carried some scarf , sweaters and water bottle .
our road journey started pretty good later it became little bad due to unexpected rain . we cant stop anywhere to save us from rain because it is highway and there is no bus stop or any shops by roadside, so we continued our journey in rain . Then we found a shelter , we have waited around 15mins then again we started our journey .
Within 1 hour 45 mins we reached kumili village which is famous for kumili temple .. time was 5.47am but still it feels like 2am , its dark and cold. then we spotted a bonfire in our way, we went there we took permission of farmer who is sitting near by fire , my friend asked him can we sit hear we are feeling cold thankfully that man said okay . we felt happy and warm 😍
We sat there for 20 -30 mins and thanked uncle who gave us permission to sit and then we started to kumili temple. Reached temple in 15 mins, Architecture of the temple is so beautiful but main drawback is temple is not well maintained . Took some great photos , this temple have a lot of god statue's including Jesus nearly 20 small temples inside kumili, then we came out of the temple had a worst tea near by . never drank that kind of tea in my life . less tea powder lots of water less milk lots of sugar. after drinking tea i got stomach ache.. 😞😞
But pain cant stop me right so we started our journey to ramatheertham for trekking which took 20 mins of road journey from kumili . village was beautiful but roads just sucks..
Finally reached to ramatheertham now we have to do trekking by climbing stairs and climbing 1.2km hill .. this was different experience.
Started climbing stairs my legs started paining but i dont want to giveup . so with pain and flow i went slowly up, now i need to climb sloppy hill finally faced it went up to see the beautiful view it was around 8.30 am . all i can see is clouds, hills and beautiful nature , this was amazing . climbing this big hill to watch such a beautiful view is perfectly worthy .. after many years i heard alot of birds sounds 😍😍😍 took many pictures there was a small temple above the hill which will be closed most of the times .. that was not well developed and maintained , then there was a route to a small pond which is more than 1000ft . after walking 10-15 mins long will found a budha cave which is too tiny and u need to crawl inside it . guess what i wore traditional clothes , normal sandals and came for trekking 😂😂😂 .
now its time to go ramanarayanam
it took 30 mins for us to reach from ramatheertham to ramanarayanam .
bike parking ticket cost us 20rps we felt that was waste because nobody is in temple everything is empty 🤔 entry ticket is 40rps per head that is absolutely okay.. 😂
slowly started going inside then i saw a tall Hanuman statue captured some pics , went inside the temple where i read whole ramayanam by watching all architecture and sculptures.. thats it ramanarayanam was completed i didn't felt that good actually i felt architecture was damn good but other than that nothing is there to see.
by coming out i found small puppy i spent time with him , i thought to take this pup to my home but i couldn't . gave a happy hug to the pup and then returned to vizag ( Visakhapatnam ) to my home within a hour..
what all i like is village vibes , village , greenery , birds sounds, kumili temple , trekking and beautiful view at ramatheertham and architecture of ramanarayam..
what i dislike is that worst tea at kumili village , poor maintenance of village roads , temples ...
finally i have reached home safely with good memories and pain in legs 😂😂😂..
