Superbly written - you folks had a great time.

Hari - I think your MM drive deserves a separate thread with detailed descriptions of gear changes, steering inputs etc.

we were doing the group photo & we needed the car headlights to increase the ambient lighting.

Both the photos are shot around 12 noon.

Superbly written travelogue Jyo. Its time you became a member here in T-Bhp !

This trip is very special for us in many ways. Great drive to and from Yercaud. Tasty homely food. Wonderful barbecue in the evening and then we drove all the way up the hill in the midnight and celebrated a memorable birthday.

Special thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Vaseem for arranging this trip. Also, Mr. & Mrs. Yousuf were a great host and we realy enjoyed our stay at the farm.

You both should be banned for making people so.........

I am going to hotel now, right now..... to have .....tea and biscuits.

I think, if rain have started, the place will be really nice to relax.
Looking at the stream at that resort, i remembered the pic of that American waterfall villa in woods[ can't remember the exact name.]

Yercaud is currently on my list of places yet to visit, so can vaseem or someone from the group kindly send me (PM) the details of "eWoods", like the contact person for making bookings in this place, what the charges are etc. I am planning for the Independance day weekend at Yercaud, so is that a right time to go there?
