Alanga (Kutloor) Waterfalls and Kodanje kallu

Last October a pleasant weekend trekking bug bit us again we wanted to go back to nature six ardent trek freaks started on our bikes and all from different places,our first place was" Konaje Kallu"it's one of the big rock mountain situated near Moodabidri ,this mountain has two peaks . Few minutes of walk we reached one Jain's cave temple its a wonderful place to see weather was playing its own prank on us that's being in nature totally unpredictable after some time in the cave temple we decided to turn back there was sudden rain the rocks were very slippery we had to climb steep rocks after a real balancing act on our part with nature we reached the bottom ,rain slippery rocks didn't let us reach the peak,but we were not the ones to give up too...

We tried reaching the peak from a different angle some of us slipped a brave strong foot Sudheer climb half the way,it was one of a kind experience competing with nature ... This did not deter our spirits we still did not want to give up though an incomplete Konajekallu could'nt stop us from visiting Alanga waterfall this is situated in edge of the Kudremukh National Park . We parked our bike in a safe place & started to walk on mud road,Kamath sir as usual was there to lead the team with all his never ending banters:)since he had already visited the fall before.
A few minutes walk in the forest the thick forest becomes more dense the silent surroundings kept us mesmerized even the view from the top even before we could reach the fall was breathtaking.
It is a great scene to watch any waterfall in its full glory and this was a average one. From this point to the base of the waterfalls was even tougher to go and it was almost like getting down a huge steep rock. Thankfully it did not rain for it would have been near to impossible to trek down in rain.
It’s easier to trek when the shoes are not wet as one gets the grip on the rocks. I did venture to get close to the falls and feel the freshness of the water sprayed from it. Ooh don’t I miss that!!! The climb up was tougher but quicker than expected. As the sunlight faded away the forests became more and more dark. Totally it was a memorable trek a pleasant memory to carry back with a refreshing mind, looking forward to many more very soon......
