Mallalli Waterfalls

 
Last weekend, I had a chance to go to Mallalli Waterfalls, the biggest falls in Kodagu district and part of the Pushpagiri Wildlife sanctuary . It’s only a 45 minutes trip from Somvarpet, but it’s a half day program for us that could go from morning to 2 pm.
 
Along with a couple friends and I, all we together organized a wonderful program on last weekend. Including myself and the driver, we had a total of fifteen people for this trip. After breakfast, we set out for a three hour drove through Bisle Ghat road and Its carried us a glorious session to explore the countryside of WesternGhat.
 
After paying the entrance fee, we continued to deep into the reserve towards horrible mud road. We went ahead on the muddy path and parked our vehicle within about 5 minutes driving from the gate we left vehicle and continued towards well-marked, well-traveled mud track and after a mile and a half, we came within sight of Mallalli falls. We spent few minutes on top of the Mallalli Valley.
 
It is a series of incredible cascades raining down from the base of the Pushpagiri was the magnificent scene the river Kumaradhara leaps over 200ft creating this spectacular view. The scenery was just breathtaking and with no doubt one of the most beautiful areas I had been to during my stay in Coorg.
 
Few steps ahead, there was a steep descent thru the jungle route. The route was slippery though definitely manageable. Within 10 minutes, we were at the base, looking in awe of the white carpet of water cascading right in front of us from such a height! The base of this waterfall was crowded as well, but steerable it was.
 
At 200 feet tall, Falls fills the rocky amphitheater with a constant breeze and sound that resembles a roaring applause. We carefully crept closer to the big drop and felt the spray, which was very cold.
 
We spent the next 20 minutes silently admiring the waterfall, pristine tiered pools, great weather quality & our surroundings, clicked a few pictures, enjoyed the cool breeze along with which fine droplets from the waterfall just settled on our faces! Oh! Heaven!!!
 
After a long traverse, I found what I was looking for, the objective of waterfall hunting is to get inspired by nature and its ability to be amazing through no effort at all. Mallalli Falls will likely forever be breathtaking to humans. When we see these natural wonders and take home with us the spark of their mystical beauty, we can use it to spread the love of the outdoors and our rare, delicate planet.

Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you propose starting with a
free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There
are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any suggestions? Thank you!
