That's an amazing log hotstuff. thanks for sharing.
BTW, there is one photograph which was just mind blowing (others are also good). The one with sunshine on a part of the hill.

Nice trip you had there, Hotstuff. Nice pics also - you have a good eye for them, so SLR not missed here.

I've a query - Do they require any minimum numbers to arrange a trek? Also did the guides tell you about the rainy season there?

Went for a short trek in Chinnar Sanctuary two days ago - to Dolmen's Caves and Stone age paintings. Awesome. More options for Trekking and also Jungle stay is arranged by Forest department. Contact number: 04865-231587. Ability to converse in Malayalam/Tamil will help in getting right information ;-) This website has good info - http://www.chinnar.org/. Please note that there are two points from where trekking starts - Chinnar (first check post after you cross TN to enter Kerala) and Alampatty. You need to confirm where you are starting your trek from
