Team-BHP Meet @ Anaikatti : 16th - 18th June, 2017-imageuploadedbyteambhp1496466098.120786.jpg

Can someone who has better equipment decipher the milestone ? As much as I was able to zoom on my iPhone 7.

Wrong photo Sudarsanan . We will get it now if someone zooms it on a good laptop.

Looks like Annur to me.

The 2nd pic is Dimbham ghats. I can see x/27 hairpin bends. Definitely Dimbham.

Yes. That's surely Dhimbam. Just saw a video on you tube and matches the 27th hairpin.

For sure

It's far away over the hills
It's far away 'neath the valleys
A magical mystery place is waiting
For O'Knighters and me


Its "hot and happening" unless doused by the advancing monsoon.

Dress code: ref the met dept.'s forecast for those dates ;-)

Last minute shopping: Sunscreen / comfortable walking shoes / hat / mosquito repellant / umbrella may be a good idea

Cheers !

For the wannabe sleuths, a couple of clues:

"Last mile connectivity"
Team-BHP Meet @ Anaikatti : 16th - 18th June, 2017-a3.jpg

Magical mystery destination threshold
Team-BHP Meet @ Anaikatti : 16th - 18th June, 2017-a2.jpg

Some drive pointers:
16th Jun.,'17

A.
1. Meeting point: Kerbside, opposite JW Mariott / UB City
2. Roll in: 4.00 am
3. Roll out: 4.30 am

B.
Fuel insecurity
While "roti and makaan" have been taken care of
yeh tel (petrol/diesel-malish) ka bandobust mera bus ka baat nahi

Participants are requested to make their own risk assessments and "insure" accordingly to their satisfaction.

The mystery drive is turning out to be even more mysterious.

As stated earlier "not for the faint hearted"

Cheers

This was a fantastic trip, and the planning by @RSUDARSANAN was, as usual, impeccable.

The destination, in the end, was no longer a mystery. But the route into the resort was magical indeed! While I am not a photo taking kind of guy, here are a few from my end.

Meet up at 4am on the date of departure. Enterprising man on bicycle made good business selling us tea.

An unfortunate pig had a close encounter with Deepfreak15's Polo.
