The versant ‘Ponmudi’


Its been sometime I was planning to take my parents for an outing . The Trivandrum trip on the previous weekend gave me a chance to plan something .We decided to visit ‘Ponmudi’ for one day .Got the accommodation at the government guest house with great difficulty. We started on Saturday noon with my cousin Anoop also joining us. Its only 53 kms from our place .The drive was nice as we didn’t find in difficulty to reach the peak .We drove directly to the guest house .Kept the baggage and started off to reach the mountain peak .The climate was simply superb as compared to the climate prevailing in kerala state now .The mountains were really nice to take some snaps .We trekked two mountains and the peaks were really nice place to rest after the trek. Met two Russians too on the peak who were also really amazed the view they had on top.
The next day early morning we started to drive back .We planned to cover the Meenmutti falls also ,which is on the way back to Trivandrum .Meenmutti falls also require a trek of almost 1 km to reach the waterfalls point .My parents found it a bit difficult at first to cross some of the parts of the trek but I know they would have enjoyed it .After the walk we had a swim at the waterfalls .That was really refreshing .
Some of the snaps can be viewed here .
