Chomkund hill - Kakkabe.
Chomkund hill will always be a place I shall visit again and again. This place will make me wonder whether I step into the land of magic or still firmly stand on the ground. With unearthly nature, unreal landscapes, these destinations will take far away from humdrum reality.
Chomkund hill considered the most beautiful hidden hill ranges in Virajpet, looks like it came straight out of a fairy tale. This hill ranges is famous not only for its magically colorful misty mountains it’s a home for beautiful dramatic landscapes and cliffs, beautiful valleys, milky cascades and coffee plants. Magical and mysterious scenery seems to be much closer to the fantasy world than to reality.
The cheerful mood we started to walk from the village and it was a nice walk, watching birds, smelling of coffee plants all together it was an awesome experience and the views across the journey are just awesome.
This is my third visit to the same place from past 4 years and I can’t hold my emotion while stepping to top. The climb to this hillock is gradient passing through open dry grasslands. However, the scenic beauty at the top of hills more than made up for the efforts.
Panoramic view from the Hillock…
Soon, we reached a beautiful natural view point surrounded by vast jungles, valleys, misty mountains. I would say the view point as one of the loneliest, calmest and beautiful view point on this range. After enjoying the calm atmosphere for about 30 minutes we decided to leave back.
I like to recall my past experiences, some tremendous moments which I could spent in this land few years back . In my first visit when we reached the top soon thick foggy clouds get clouded and covered the whole area on a short time. While on my second visit we made a stay in edge of the another opposite side mountain and the morning till 10am mist and wind was so heavy that the mountain top may be visible for a moment time and the sun rays would played tremendous role on that time to create haven on earth and it was lush green everywhere. But this time the sky was very clean and we able to get some good different snaps.
