#Travel : An Auto Ride to Kundadri Hills

Kundadri Hills, Yet another beautiful place in the Western Ghats. It was during my Agumbe trip, I got a chance to visit this breathtakingly beautiful place.

Kundadri is around 17km from Agumbe. As there was some sort of time constraints in this trip, I decided to take an auto rickshaw aka tuk-tuk to this place. I have met an auto driver the previous day and he agreed to take me there.

I wanted to go there early in the  morning, but the auto guy suggested that, it wouldn’t be a great idea as it was raining during that time. So we decided to start around 9.30 in the morning.

The highway was super nice. And rain stayed away from my plans. It was a great day for exploring a place. Soon we reached the diversion from the highway to the narrower way to Kundadri.

The road itself said, “You are nearing the destination”. The texture of the road changed, The altitude started changing,  the sound of engine started to change. This road had some really tricky curves like in the ghat roads. The tuk tuk struggled a lot at certain places.

The elevation of Kundadri is 826 meters. And at the top of the hill, there is an ancient Jain temple which is believed to be constructed in 17th century. Continue reading #Travel : An Auto Ride to Kundadri Hills

Never Give Up : Lesson learned at Onake Abbi Falls

Journeys can teach you some life lessons. Here is one such lesson.

Onake Abbi falls is a beautiful place near Agumbe. I wanted to explore this place. So I went there again. But this time alone.

The day was pretty good. Weather was nice. Even the rain took a break and that too even in Agumbe, the second wettest place in India. So I felt very good about the whole trip.

Even though I did an overnight bus journey and reached Agumbe a couple of hours ago, I felt fresh and started for the trekking.

Agumbe, that Morning

I asked the general direction towards the starting point of the trek and started walking. First I took a wrong turn and reached a dead-end where I met a guy.  He gave me the correct direction in a language that I didn’t understand completely. He also warned me about the leeches.

In fact I completely forgot to bring salt bag as a precautionary measure against the leeches. Then he generously helped me with a cup of salt. Meeting yet another helping stranger!

In few minutes, I was back on the right track. Then I could see a group of people walking ahead of me. I was not in a mood to go with a  group. I wanted to explore it alone. So without giving them much attention I kept on walking and got ahead of  them.

The trekking trail was just starting.

It looked really nice. The rainforest trek route obviously looked very green and paved with fallen leaves. Walking through that greenery was a pleasure.

As I walked, the forest just got greener and denser. And I was surrounded by various sounds of a typical forest. There was this constant sounds made by the crickets and occasional chirping and whistling of various birds all around me. Continue reading Never Give Up : Lesson learned at Onake Abbi Falls
