Again on foot, we began our journey from McleoGanj main street to Bhagsu Naag waterfall. Along the way we came upon Bhagsunag Shiv Mandir, Radha Krishnan Hanuman & devi Mandir and Bhagsunag swimming pool. To reach the falls you can climb half a mountain with clearly marked pathway or the beautiful valley which outlines a river(souli Khad) that is now dried(being winter the stream was small). We decided to ditch the pathway and headed upstream on the stony riverbed to the fall. I advise to use your judgement based on weather conditions and stick to the clearly marked pathway if necessary. The clear cool waterfall was refreshing.
Its early morning 6.00 as we (myself and a colleague) started in my Royal Enfield, The sun started to rise. Thrishur was almost 125+ kms from coimbatore. we were able to reach it by 8.30. Landing at Arya's Hotel in Thrishur NH, we had Kerala special Kozha puttu for breakfast. After a little drag we move further to reach the Chalakudy road which was much easier to find, the road which leads to Adhirapally Falls. After reaching the falls we drenched ourselves for an hour. It was almost 11.30. The best part is about to start. Many people think that Adhirapally Falls is a dead end road. But there is a beauty which leads you to Valparai from there. In almost no time we reached the check posy for Valparai road. This leads you up to the sources of Adhirapally Falls, going further to valparai. It's a 90 kms stretch were you can enjoy wilderness. The road was cover both the sides by trees. It was drizzling all the time. Condition by the check post Police officials is that we have to reach the other end by 2hrs. Needless to say the road was laid in best quality that you can easily reach in given time, but the greenery around the place, a small river running in the verge of road following you all the way uphill, breath taking views and animals will not let you reach though. You Can reach Valparai in 2 hrs. From after having lunch at valparai we reached Coimbatore back in evening through Pollachi. All I could say is its the most beautiful trip I had ever taken so far!
This picturesque waterfall is over the Sharavathi Roiver in the Shimpga District. This fall originates from the meeting point of four cascades known as Raja, Rani, Rover and Rocket.

Once there took place a very sad incident. There was a woman here named LiKai who was married to a very nice man who was a porter and after a few months of marriage she also gave birth to a beautiful daughter. Sadly after a few days, her husband died while carrying iron to Sylhet. She was left all alone without any support and a little girl to feed along with herself. Finding no other option she also took up the job of a porter. Since she was having no time at all to look after her daughter she was remarried. After this also she had no time to look after her husband or her daughter. Her husband grew angry and one day out of frustration he killed the little girl and cooked her as a meal. When LiKai was back home she could not see her daughter but instead of looking for her she decided to have the meal which look very good. After she had finished and was going to take a betel leaf, she found a severed little finger and soon understood what had happened. She lost her senses immediately and went mad. She kept on running and at the end jumped in this waterfall. After this the local people named it NohKaLiKai in which Noh means jump of, Ka is the term used for Meghalayan women and LiKai is the name. So, it means Jump of KaLiKai. This is at present a popular tourist attraction where you will find beautiful sceneries. The force of the waterfalls is maximum during the summers and monsoon and least during the winters.

This is a trek which I undertook last year. The trek falls under the simple category and can be completed in half a day. I visit Badrinath every four years due to religious reasons. I had always heard about this place but never been there. This time I decided to go for it. Vasudhara Falls is a waterfall situated near Badrinath, in Uttarakhand, India. Total distance from Badrinath to Vasudhara is 9 km. The first 3 kilometers of badrinath to mana village is drivable road. Next 6 km is walkable trek from Mana village to Vasudhara waterfall. However I travelled from Badrinath itself on foot. Being the local of that area I am familiar with the language and people. Because of which the trek took me 15 Km. However I enjoyed the fullest.I took the back road from Badrinath to reach Vyas Guda. The priest over there knew my father and grand father really well, hence we received a very warm welcome. We had tea at the shop named "Bharat ki akhri chai ki dukan". And its literally the last shop hence pack some water and food for the trek. From there we proceeded towards Bheem Pul. This is a stone bridge which according to the scriptures was created by Bhima in order to help Pandavas cross the mighty Saraswati river. On the way you can actually see the Saraswati river merging into Alaknanda and disappearing all together. A contrast in the waters of the two rivers is clearly visible. Bheem Pul also has some shops near by for refreshments post which you will not find anything.From here we proceeded towards Vasudhara. It's a mountainous terrain hence trekking shoes are highly recommended. The view during the trek is ecstatic. The entire mountain range seems to come alive. Sometimes its misty, sometimes its sunny. The nature plays these little games to make the experience all the more beautiful. My cousin being a student of Ayurveda kept on telling me about the various medicinal plants which could be seen on the way. We had to cross two glaciers in order to reach Vasudhara. Crossing the glacier in trekking shoes was a fearful experience. The trek does leave you tired towards the end and you keep on wondering when will I see the falls. But just like all good things take their own sweet time to happen, you will be mesmerized by the beauty of the falls. The falls had a thick glacier beneath it which prevented us from going nearer but what we saw was breathtaking. Vasudhara falls from a height if 145 meters but the strong winds and low temperatures cause the water to fall down as droplets. There is a interesting legend about the waterfall which says that if you are not pure at heart, the water will not fall on you. After a good view and a lot of pictures, we returned back to Badrinath. The enchanting falls still make us smile when we think about their beauty.

Our first stop was at the Cheeyappara waterfall which cascades down in seven steps making it a pretty sight. The sad part, we tourists. Plastic bottles and snack wrappers had been dumped by some and it was an ugly sight at the bottom of the falls.
