Showery outing…

A wonderful freedom trip in the wild we got to see another beautiful waterfall. As usual Sunday morning 4 of our team players hit the road, keeping 2-3 places in mind we started our journey, Sunday morning was very pleasant with bright sun in sky. As per our plan we chose to go this unknown place, 3 years back I had tried to go this place but reached a different place altogether this time we decided to ask few village locals,
We spotted a few who were having a morning session of updating each other with latest worldly matters we interrupted them to enquire about the falls and the whole group got so excited and were eager to help and guide us many more joined them and were in action full swing after half an hour of total excitement with villagers we started our journey riding in the slush slippery road we finally reached the last house of that village,
There was one more guy who joined us and now totally with a seven member team we started walking down stream after an hour walking in the stream we reached the first step of Kadandlaje Arbi waterfall, by then rain started pouring and we could hardly take any photos the rocks were very slippery and treading carefully we stepped on another huge rock to get to the main waterfall.
Scenery around was very beautiful with sheets of water pouring on our head from the fall as well as rain we could not make out as to whether it was fall or rain we swam in the pool for some time enjoying rain and fall glory but due to heavy rain water flowing started to increase and very soon the stream and pool suddenly seemed quiet dangerous we couldn’t retrace our step back through river as it had swollen.
While climbing down some of our teammates faced some hazardous problem due to Rising River we changed our route inside the forest instead of river path. After all just one hour of heavy rain had great impact on the water level of the stream it had increased 5 times high &was very violent, finally we reached the village & had hot tea to charge our soaked bodies, and the villagers were of great help and treated us very nicely their simple kind nature to help was such a contrast to our limited life in the city, totally drenched it was rather a chilling experience...........
A great Kuringallu(Kurinjalu) range...
