This amazing trip was with my colleagues from Bangalore. We drove from Bangalore to Wayanad which is 5- 6 hours. We started in the night to reach Wayanad around 6 AM because the border gate from Karnataka to Kerala will open at 6 AM. On the way we met deers, peacocks etc and said Hi, bye and rushed to reach the border.
The long roads, the forest way, through Bandipur national forest, the greens everywhere. Wow, we were on the way to see through Nature. I slept for sometime in the car when it was night before we are about to reach Wayanad, see the greens. After we crossed the border , we had a cup of hot coffee. I was sitting in the front seat, with window open of course and got involved with the nature beauty. We also stopped a car on the way to capture the long roads.
Before going to our stay, we started our day with trek, basically we parked our car and went to the hill top in Jeep, because for the muddy roads and the road condition there, jeeps are the best!
Then we started our small trak, surrounded with greens and water. The jeep driver was a guide and he took us to the places he knew. We reached one place where the water was transparent and freaking cold!
I took of my shoes and wanted to jump into the water. I stepped into the water and i felt, No the water is freezing, how will my body deal with this now, Ha ha!
Then i thought, okay let me be in the water for sometime then get drenched into the waterfall. Among the others, me and my other senior wanted to jump onto water, but 3 of us were not :p
My attire was kind of matching the background, the green and the black! From toes to knees, i was okay, then we headed towards another place where the water is crystal clear and the small waterfall. Suddenly we all thought to jump into the water, and we did finally :p. It was freezing but it was okay after sometime. We came back to our car with our wet clothes by the way, but it was a bit dried with a morning walk we had.
Then we wanted to rush to our stay, our stay was booked in middle of Banasura Sagar dam and Banasura hills. The 1 whole cottage was mine and the other one(bigger one)was for rest of them.
I went in and felt mesmerized with the view. We had a colourful lunch(with different types of chutney and curries) and got a bit of rest and relax. The plan was to finish trek reach our accomadation, then spend time there because there are places around the cottage. See what it looked like.
