Waynad Trip Part -1
Every year during monsoons we tend to do something different, and this year too after many bookings and cancellations the first time and not getting tickets the next, finally a sudden program with not much of planning we started our journey towards place called Kalpetta in Waynad.Me and my friend had to start our journey from Bangalore but as always things were decided at the last minute and since had to complete my work at office and I just rushed at the last minute and got a bus to Mysore where my wait was all night long till my friend joined me around midnight to proceed to Kalpetta.
We reached our place around seven in the morning everything looked new and for a while we were just wondering as to where to start from looking around for a decent place we freshened up and had a light breakfast and started our trek,
We first went to a place a view point called Lakkidi the complete Ghat section and the Waynad region could be seen it was a breath taking view from that place. The lofty mountain peaks, the gurgling stream, luxuriant vegetation and the bird’s eye view of the deep valley on the south, with its winding roads, are breath taking.
Very beautiful and with excellent weather conditions we proceeded to a place called Pokut lake a natural lake amidst hills was a picturesque place, early morning sun and the place had its own magical effect and we sat for a while to soak in the magic, after some time at the lake we started our journey towards Soochipara falls…
A very popular tourist spot but going to waterfalls on our previous treks we never expected it to be a very well maintained complete tourist place. It was a very relaxing visit to this place though it was very crowded we managed to see the place a thundering waterfall was a sight by itself.
