Hi KP, Great travelogue, nice pictures. Reminds me of the time I went for trekking to Agastyarkoodam.
Waiting for Part 2 of the travelogue.

Snaronikar.
I can't post the pics from office and My BSNL broadband at home is completely dead. Hence, the delay.
Gimme a day or two.

Arrow Kp Great Going

KP,

Great going, nice to see the OBL trip and pictures. Waiting for more... keep them coming.

We did a series of OBL's in 2006/ 2007 around Shivpuri and was doing all that practically for 7 days a month, it was lots of fun and learning.

Do you have the contact details of the Tour Organizer ? Could be useful to me for future.

Happy Driving,

--Ramky

hmm,

my own reply to those preferring chilled out events, or less tiring ones. My personal funda is twofold:
a. Chilled out events = beers after work. Young 20ish boys do that anyways Or hang out at malls and check out wimmen! HR neednt arrange more chilled out functions. those are for family days.
b. Just my take, but so far, the peak experiences I've had, a near death one in the rains in prev firm, midnight escapades to weird places in SE Asia - I remember. On the other hand, the regular hanging out and drinking sessions I can't remember any. You actually bond closer in adversity/adventure than over drinks!

that said KP, gimme more!!

And I thought Sam was the only person in TBhp capable of stopping the narrations at such junctures & causing loss of productive work hours & general mayhem in offices across the globe!

Can we have the 13,000 odd feet in one go?

Posting on behalf of KP as for some reason he's not able to upload pictures.

Sorry for making u all wait.!! The adventure continues......

11 July Day 4

As per schedule everyone wakes up and go through the morning routine. The only difference was that here the toilets had roof which made it pitch dark inside. lol
Somehow all of us came up trumps with the toilet adventure with limited resources. :-p

Having Breakfast in the aluminum mess tin.

After breakfast it was rappling time. Instructors start hooking up the ropes and they also take all the safety measures for the event.
The rock chosen for the rappling was around 100ft high and too see the instructors on top hooking up was itself a scary scene.

The acrophobic guys start shivering and i see a few of them desperately praying to rain Gods to save them.
Five minutes later it seems like rain Gods have indeed obliged and it starts pouring in and all of us run for cover, the instructor remain on top.

Sadly for the acrophobic ppl the rain didn't last for long and the rappling started after an hour. Risk factor has doubled now as the rock surface is completely wet.
Rainbow was almost next to us...

Many guys try to avoid the event by plainly refusing and some tried to hide behind the rocks. lol
The first couple of steps were scary but after that its fun if u keep yourself perpendicular to the rock surface. Out of fear many tried to hug the rock and landed in trouble.

Rappling is over in around 2hrs time and we start trekking back to the base camp.
After the heavy downpour the downhill route to base camp had become extremely slippery and risky. Every forward step was getting riskier than the previous step. The weight of the ruck sack on the back was only making it even more difficult for us to walk. Some used wooden stick to avoid slipping and rest had to manage with their balancing skills and bare hands. There were lot of slips, ankle twists and bruised fore arms on the way to base camp.

Reaching the base camp was big sigh of relief. We had lunch and the some rest before the "point to point" game started.
