Kerala has a rich heritage and offers wide range of tourist attractions like Munnar hill station,Vrakala,kovalam beach along with Alleppey-The back waters(Lagoons) known as GOD'S own country which really justifies the statement.
In the current blog, I am posting my experience on a group trip to Athirappilly falls via Hanging bridge.It was 13th Aug, 2017(sunday) we started our journey with a zoomcar which proved to be a good idea at an affordable price. We were group of 8 members of XIME college Kochi. The good thing about our team was we had 3 guyz who knew driving which made the trip more effective and enjoyable as there was no problem for swapping the driver seat.We started the journey with full music and snacks.
It is well laid route, and one would enjoy the drive past the open landscapes,small fountains,rubber tree plantation and small seasonal waterflows.
After a journey of 45 kms we reached to hanging garden the name implies as it has a hanging bridge.There was an entry fee of Rs.10/person with samll hotels to quench your thirst and hunger at resonable price.It also has a exotic view of small falls and bridge swinging by the wind and large number of foot steps.
This view is taken from down once we took staircase to reach the bridge it gave goose bumps as it was shaking due to chaos.
The small seasonal falls made it more attractive and best thing i liked was systematic flow built by kerala tourism and plantation of trees in between the igneous rocks.
We took an exit from this place had lunch in a restaurant named "Global Food" and moved toward our prime journey location which was Athirapally falls or got popular by name "BAAHUBALI FALLS" which created more tourist attraction because of the shoot of the highest earned movie of Indian cinemas.It had a ticket entry of Rs.30 for kerala visitors and 100 for outsiders.After treaching the destination we got astonished with the pressure and thickness of waterfalls. As i have visited jog fall earlier but the tickness was more as a personal thinking.
This image shows top of the waterfall which has a exotic view but the real surprise was yet to come as we went down the pressure with which water was falling and even the showers and sparkling layer of drops made us wet,shiver and completely a "Pias Wasool Trip".
Now it's time to say Adieu as it was 6 p.m in the evening we started our round trip which took less time then arrival as we got familiar with the route and halted at a place in M.G Road kochi at big fat momos around 7.15 to finish our trip with an exiquisite dinner and even gave the car to the agency at right time.
TIP: A proper and cost effective plan should be made before any journey plan.
PLAN was executed well with a reasonable amount of Rs. 600/head with a smile on each face.Now signing off with many more adventurous expierences coming up and has to be dotted down.
