Our College Tour:

DAY 4:

It was the last day of the tour and it happened to be the most memorable day for me. Awaiting another day of great pleasure and experience we were all set to our next spot-The Meenmutty Falls. This is the most spelt falls at Wayanad after the Soochipura. We have heard this falls to be dangerous. We have heard from other friends that the way to this falls is very hard to track, infact you could get lost. The day started great on hearing India’s win over the CB series defeating Australia 2-0 in the finals. We had a nice breakfast – Bread with butter and Jam and Dosai with Chutney and Sambar. This unlimited food costed just 30 bucks and was pretty enough that it served all stomachs for the whole day. We took the route which we went on our previous day to Edacal Caves. The falls was 18 kms from Edacal caves. That day's fun started in the van itself. I was dozing on the way and just realized that i fell on Jaquiline mam. I had to ask sorry to her all the way :). Our vehicles were parked at the main road. We had to walk 4 kms from the main road to reach the falls. The path was pretty tough to go. But we have to appreciate the Kerala govt. for preserving this area. We hired a guide for 200 bucks just to lead us to the falls. We went pur way crossing by Coffee and Tea plantations. The scene was amazing. We didn’t find any dry leaves, though the period we visited was at summer. We understood what nature was. The place was very quite and you could just have the feel that you were on an adventure trip with Jeff Corwin. As we proceeded we found the path to be sloping down. The path was slippery, making all of us to move with great care. The place soon turned out to go dark as Teak tress obstructed the sunlight from falling. Pepper and cardamom were planted for the first 1.5 kms. We have cross the forest range which was very dense. The path had plants which were as tall as us. Breathing fresh air we had our greatest experience on trekking in a forest area. Surely is Kerala “God’s own Country”. The path suddenly sloped more downwards; we had to rely on each other for moving. We had to catch hold of trees and stones to gain grip. Emerson was the cameraman for that day. It was fun watching GK moving hard. But besides his features, this man was strong enough to cross all stuffs without any help. ATM raced ahead above all with ease, his composure the secret behind him. It was again a day of comedy show by the girls especially from Mythili and Vishnupriya. Two spots on the way were very dangerous. One place just slipped down with no supports and if you had slipped on it then you got to roll for few metres. The other place can just bear only one person at a time. There was no land beneath us. A small rock served as a bridge; we had to cross its help. Just a slip can seriously injure a person. We could hear the noise of the water falling. We were near the falls. We moved on and finally reached. The falls was huge. We were able to get a clear view of it. Actually we were on the second tier. The falls totally had 3 tiers. The 2nd tier was the biggest and the deepest of all. We had to climb down rocks to reach its foot. The falls looked undiscovered. We were very energetic and dropped our clothes for a swim in the little pond made by the falls (I don’t know swimming-it’s another fact). Aashik met his first slip of the tour. He wiped off the algae completely that were on the rocks. His white pants turned green but he had helped Kishore who also slipped on the same place; but dint wet his pants. VJ was at his best outfits- Blue underpants. This man was enjoying to his maximum, it dint last long for him. He tore his underpants. He had to wear another one he brought as spare. That was the greatest comedy of the day. A tragedy too happened. I would write about it in detail in my next post. We had a great time in water. The falls was quaint in appearance. It was time and we had to leave the place. The return journey was difficult, as we had to ascend. At one spot Vishnupriya blocked nearly 7-10 people, the reason was that she was afraid to climb up a steep slope. It was Srikanth who gave courage to her. She finally decided to come up and it was me and Kaushik who had our nerves tight in the end. We had to quench our thirst here and there. We finally reached the main road. We had to reach Calicut at 17.00 hours to catch our train. The drivers flew their way and we reached the station at 17.10 hours. Calicut was 110 kms from Wayanad. The train arrived at 17.30 sharp. We got in and it started in 5 minutes. We had memorable moments in the train just mocking people and playing cards. We reached Chennai safely the next day at 5.30 in the morning and left the station with a heavy heart because that was the last tour of our college life.
