I travelled on the 21st June weekend to Wayanad with Plan the unplanned. I was skeptical at first my very close friend had to push me hard to get on-board, since I am not a trek guy in the first place - but it honestly turned out to be an absolutely amazing and unexpectedly good experience. 1. Ease of transportation, planning and arrangements Ive driven to a lot of places in south India, but nothing beats the comfort of having someone else do all these things for you and let you enjoy the trip without having to worry about anything. Thats a big USP what will all our busy lives with work and all, the last thing I want to worry on my vacation is if the food is going to be alright or if the homestay is safe etc. you get the point. The stress-free outsourcing of planning to experts actually helps.2. If you go to google and do a search for places to visit in Wayanad you will get the usual and these usual places are boring, crowded and overhyped. Which brings me to the second point we went to the most unexplored and beautiful places in Wayanad names of which I still cant pronounce. We played in the cleanest waters ever and night camped at the most unusual viewpoints on hills. I am was scared of heights and water currents and this trip has helped immensely in overcoming some of that fear. I dont look like Hrithik Roshan, but I sure can relate to his feeling post his scuba diving experience in ZNMD.3. However, at the end of the day, its people who make or break trips/planned outings like these. One, our trek leads Prakriti and Megha were absolutely amazing to say the least. They were extremely helpful, accommodating and really cool. Oh and bey the way, theyre great people in general too genuine and welcoming. Two, the people we met on the trip were real fun I was there with a very close friend of mine and we came back with 4 more friends how cool is that? Of course, we were lucky too because the people on this specific trip were really cool this part of the experience might not be the same for everyone. The second days plan were a bit off and we couldve covered some more places. Ive to mention though - it was partly affected by us lazing around in the homestay and leaving very late. Even so, not much of a buzz kill since even at the homestay people were enjoying a lot. Everything said and done, I would easily rate it 4.7/5. The people, the seamless planning and the wonderful trek leads along with well-chosen itinerary made sure that the experience was really good even for non-trek people like me. A few points off for the second day plans although we were partially responsible for it leaving the homestay a bit too late. Bottomline way to go, PTU - by Syed for Wayanad - Night Trek and Camping | Plan The Unplanned organized by Plan The Unplanned .
Kumta - The trek started with us reaching the camp site where tents had been set up and the ocean could be heard. With two of the sweetest local guides who told me stories of the ocean and the rains, we visited forts, wells, and a lot of good, secluded beaches. The trek leaders, Amit and Jolly, constantly reassured the group that there was enough time to do as we pleased, and a sense of peace was established. The sound of the waves crashing on the sea shore, only reinforced this. On the rocks and on the sand, both the local guides and our trek leaders helped us safely get through. Dolphins and excited screams were witnessed. Amit taught me the art of floating, while being very considerate of my inability to swim. Later while being even more considerate of our wishes, on a spontaneous boat ride, life jackets were tightened and we jumped off the boat only to realize that floating in the middle of the ocean is an underrated experience. After dinner, Jolly enlightened us and took us to a world, where only the sound of the ocean and that of the Harmonica existed. Jolly showed us glow in the dark plankton that lit up the ocean while pointing out at the constellations right above us. The next day, we were taken to the waterfall we all voted for, and dinner was accommodated according to our desires too. I was honestly amazed by how accommodating our trek leaders were of all our needs, and desires. PTU and especially my trek leads, did one good job. I am aware that this review is a tab bit long but when one goes on such a good trip with really good people, this is inevitable :) - by Thejaswini K for Kumta Beach Trek and Camping | Plan The Unplanned organized by Plan The Unplanned .
As an adventure freak ,travel enthusiastic and equally an introvert I was always scared of going on a solo trip and my desire to travel made me to overcome my fears and at last I decided to do something crazy and new to me on a day very special and I choose plan the unplanned for my first solo adventure with a bunch of strangers. I started my journey with little dilemma that What if I can't mingle with ppl and what if I left out to be alone but all those fears vanished when oshin one of our trek lead started to know about us and making us to know others. After the other trek leads prakruthi and Jatin joined us , it all began with playing fun games getting to know each other , listening to some adventures and discussing about the itinerary. As we all know a Journey is best measured in friends , rather than milesOur trek leads made sure we all know each other well through out the whole journey and with We hiked, we ran ,held hands together, we played , we laughed and when we were tired we simply sat and watched the sun go to sleep. We walked on the shores watching the little baby crabs come out of their burrows and we set to sleep under the sky with millions of stars gazing at us, watching the moon playing hide and seek, listening to the waves along side the shore. It was a spectacular delight to the eyes and bliss to our minds and a perfect get away from a busy city life.The whole trip was well organized and Thanks to you PTU and trek leads for making this dream a reality. Looking forward to meet you in the next trek. We started this journey as quite strangers but ended up having good friends after all there are no strangers in this world , only friends I haven't met yet. - by Mounika KL for Gokarna Beach Trek & Camping | Plan the Unplanned organized by Plan The Unplanned .
