Yes, I keep revisiting this thread almost every hour to see if there is any update. I am enjoying my beast. I will try to put a post with pictures and ownership experience as soon as I get some time from my work.

Ha ha, my same thoughts there. I saw some "aattukallu" and "ammikkallu" in some other museum.

I guess all these will fetch us a fortune later.

Day 3, November 29th 2009 continued

We drove towards Emerald Dam from the Tribal Museum. Emerald Dam is around 10Km from here.

On the way the breath taking sceneries stopped us, and we were like Wow!

See for yourself - if pictures are so, what could that place be naturally. All these are from Avalanche Road.

Guys stop reading, get out and drive






Some where in Yellakandy near Nanjanadu, 13 Kms from Ooty.

Day 3, November 29th 2009 continued

I have got a few PMs asking for the route to Emerald lake.

Mt. Palada, Tribal Museum, Emerald Dam, Avalanche, Kundah, Upper Bhavani all are on this road.

Please find the maps from Google showing the route.

Swifted :  Ooty-map2.jpg

This is the route I had taken unknowingly in 2006 in the night . More about that later.

Great photos of Avalanche lake. I always wanted to visit this place on my numerous trips to Ooty but did not get much help with the route. Thanks for the route info laluks!! I though we need some kind of permit to visit these places..Any pointers on that??

Those photos are not of Avalanche lake. They are different ones.
Avalanche lake photos are yet to be uploaded The teaser picture with my Red Riding Hood was Avalanche lake.

Emerald lake and Avalanche lake are still accessible, no permits required. But the dams are not.
Seems now upper Bhavani is also out of bounds.

Yes. It is also out of bounds. I was fortunate enough to go there about 3 years back and the route there is just too awesome.

Thanks KRRaj.
I don't know if Emerald and Avalanche will also become out of bounds. I guess not due to the villages there.


Please find the map details for the locations we did on day 2

Very beautiful locale, Lalu! The photos have come out really good! We were never lucky enough to see such clear skies!

We avoided going to Avalanche, when we were there! I am eagerly awaiting your pics.

When my wifey sees it, we will have one more reason to head back to the Nilgiris!!!
