Lalu,

The only difference with your earlier ones is its very short but ofcourse beautiful like always! Never knew of this place, it looks inviting for a day break but the 90+ hair pins and 1025+ steps makes me faint . What was the approx temperature during noon?

BTW your Civic might be feeling offended, you are really avoiding her in all your recent funs .

Undy guys are ok. What's disgusting is the belly that bulges over the undy finally making it look like a thong stuck inbetween huge masses of flesh!

Khoj has become like tamil hero Vijayakanth. He's giving all the pulli vivaram (grossly translated to Point details).


And yes, Take Dashy with you. He might bite the big bellied undy uncles there.
Incidentally I believe it's banned in Courtallam (kutrallam) falls in TN to bathe in Undies. Irrespective of that certain habits are undying!

One day trip, one day log Temperature was hot, may be around 32-34. But after the shower, basking in the sun was too good.

Civic is doing duty on long drives to my home town Trivandrum, which never gets translated to a travelogue. She had her share of fun in end of April, where she did a Bangalore - Kanyakumari in 7.5+hours, on the super NH7.

, Yes the overhangs are the ones which makes it too objectionable.

But you must see Thripparappu - horrible, Ladies wash clothes on the top, people bath in the same water that flows down over the cliff with soap, and the flowing water further is collected as a pool where people jump and swim. Yuck it is!

Khoj is khojing and detailing

+1. And I am sure this is just the beginning. More logs of kolli should be coming soon.

The pics with the borders have come out really well.

The falls looks nice. Should be ideal for monsoon I think.

And yes, you can't do anything for those people bathing like that in their inners.

Last weekend i was in Suruli falls. And saw people using the falls like their own bathroom. With soap, shampoo etc. When are they going to change?

Thanks Mahesh.
Only thing is that, you just avoid those guys and be at your space.
Here too we saw some people bathing with soap :(

* There was water logging due to heavy rains after the Attibele Toll booth and before the first flyover. The entire area was jammed, and we had to squeeze through the lorries, and I risked running through the water.

If its raining heavily, people travelling to Marthahalli, Whitefield etc take the Sarjapur shortcut and avoid this puddle. Potholes are anyday better that Waterlogging.

The waterfalls look gorgeous. The place must be fantastic during the rainy season. Thanks for the distance details.

The waterfalls will be very good after the rains. I guess then you cannot stand under it due to the force.
Infact it rained little the week before we went.

Lalu, nice one day trip you had it seems. That's a new destination for me. I'm looking at the distance & route from Trivandrum for future use. Thanks for sharing. And your photos are excellent.

Thats a funny reply Jothi, Ranjan can join HVK for one of his trips. BTW Lalu sir depends on his mate (GPS) most of the time for logging the information on travel.
