Vattakkanal falls is Lirl falls?

Why Qualis to Berajim lake? Xylo would have done the job right?

It was so good that you guys took the pain to clear off the mess that was created in the forest. Civic sense lacks in a few and that causes all these problems. Well, there are some who take the pain to try and make a change. Hats off to you guys !

From Berajim lake, we headed towards back and found the bridge that was dilapidated, it was swinging bridge that's; it was super fun to just go over it to the view point.

while me and rocky decided to walk on the bridge; others thought its safer just to stare at us.

Hey people would like to share the situation behind those pictures. We climbed up a viewing deck on the way to berajim lake. The intensity of wind was so high that the surrounding trees looked like they are goinig to fly away with it. It was a phenomenal experience to stand against that wind. I felt like my nose was frozen thats when I covered my face to keep it warm. hey, rocky thanks for those pics, I feel like a beautiful arabian lady there...

Berijam lake and the forest route was closed for us, when we wanted to visit that area from Kodai, a few months back.

So, looks like they have opened up that area for public again.
Nice snaps btw!

Raj.barcode's pics dont do justice to the gust of wind that was blowing(no offence to you raj). Let me add something to what sriraj was trying to portray.

This is how windy it was.
