-Padmavathy Manoharan It’s no joke that people call Kerala as God's own country. Every nook and corner of Kerala is filled with beauty. But, the place very close to my heart is Wayanad. Visit Wayanad once and you'll witness yourself. It is a place full of surprises which is a hill station in the plain Malabar region of Kerala. There are a whole lot of places in Wayanad to make you go crazy about the place. Some of the places to make you stand in awe-stricken silence are Edakkal Caves, Soochipara Falls, Pookode lake, Banasura Sagar Dam, Kuruva Island and so on. Edakkal Caves This is the best place for trekking in Wayanad and mostly not suitable for the elderly people. But I made all my family members except my grandmother to go on with the trekking. Though everyone grouched abou

 -Vikram Mn It was a long hauled plan. It was even more important because last time the plan was cancelled at last minute and I had to waste a four day holiday at home. So to make it happen and make it happening was amazing. Day 0– Special One 12/22/2017 I’ve never taken leave on the day of travel. Because I would feel like it’s a waste of leave. If I take leave I plan to leave the previous working day. So this was special one. I had some work in the morning so the guilty pleasure was filled to the brim. In fact the whole trip was a guilty pleasure one. As one of my trips had got cancelled I had lot of leaves remaining, plus it was the year end so I let go everything and start afresh in the New Year. So Friday leave was the first of it. Wasted the day in a lovely manner by

This is a continuation from the article Trekking through the Himalayas - Story VIII By Sreedevi Rajesh While we started from our camp, we were provided with a list of items to be carried out for high level trekking- a pair of goggles and an UV polarized glass to escape from 'White Out” phenomenon where the surroundings will be sprinkling silvery. If observed with naked eyes, it would be stinging. Sun blazed gloriously above, making everything shine under it. Our guide told us that we had reached our dream destination. The winning for which we had struggled for ; 'The Chanderkhani Pass’. We were at the peaks of excitement and pride that we had conquered one of the highest spot of Himalayan ranges adventurously. We had 1 hour of amusement there. The clicks we had there was the m

This is a continuation from the article Trekking through the Himalayas - Story VII Pepped up with perkiness, we rested on the mountain peak. But the guide hurried up to get on with our journey ahead despite of waiting for the others to reach. We already were briefed that in case if we were  unable to cross 'Chander Ghani’ pass  by evening for any reason, we were asked to return back to the camp and resume our journey the next day. Keeping those words in mind, we undoubtedly took our belongings and followed him. We were then, at an altitude of 12000ft above the sea level where temperature was close to 0 degrees with pinching cold. It was, for us, simply trivial as we got in habitude with the environment. Sweaters and boots too played their roles pretty well. An array of mountains

This is a continuation of the article Trekking through the Himalayas - Story VI   We took repose in an uninhabited open place where the ascend terminates and slope begins. It was a great relief to have a resting time after crossing a terror striking path. All of a sudden the camp leader hastened to resume the journey as there was a probability for torrential rain. We hurried down the slope disregard of rain, eventhough it was tough to move on. Rain water was flowing at our ankle levels and we walked forward poking with staffs to find the obstacles before each footstep. Many of our fellow men tumbled down through the slope. No serious casualties were there as it was not that fearful one. My cautiousness saved me from any accidents. I also thanked my water proof trekking shoes for

This is a continuation from the article, Trekking through the Himalayas- Story V I trudged solely through the shower of rain, spotting the sign boards to track our campsite. Distantly, near a scarp, the encampmemt caught my sight. The camp-sheds were situated on a plane adjacent to the scarp. The camp premises were almost florified with a herb resembling Water Hyacinth, dancing with the breeze. I dashed towards the site howling and screaming as a sign of relief. The path towards the campsite was muzzy and large masses of cow droppings swamped all around. We struggled to make out our way screened by dense foliages. Somehow managed to get in there with soggy clothes and dirty boots. We cleaned our dresses and foot wears, and occupied our tents for resting. We did not find find our ...

We wanted to pray for our parents who had left us a few years back and that was why we desperately wanted to go to Rameswaram. So we planned our pilgrimage to Rameswaram on 29th September 2017. After washing out our sins through prayers, we planned to go to the nearest tourist place, the Ghost town, Dhanushkodi. Here is this article that can give insights on the fast developing tourist spot Dhanushkodi. Come, travel with us! We entered the main roads that led to Dhanushkodi from the congested streets of Rameswaram. The roads were newly paved.
