Details

Meesapulimala is the second highest peak in the Western Ghats of Idukki district on the Indian subcontinent after Anamudi. Its peak is 2,640 meters (8,661 ft) above sea level.

The name derives from the fact that it is formed of eight hills which spread like a mustache which gave a name as “Meesapulimala”. It is considered to be the most beautiful mountains to climb over in the south Western Ghats.

The Best part of the Meesapulimala Trek you could see lots of rhododendrons flowers. The Valley is also called Rhodo Valley.

Day 0:

Bangalore

Leaving from Bangalore in the late evening. We request you to have some light food before traveling. This trip would be an overnight journey to Munnar base camp in which we would have an informal introduction and have fun.

Day 1:

Silent Valley Campsite

We would be reaching to the forest department base in Munnar and from there we would take a Jeep ride to our Silent Valley Campsite. The campsite is located in the heart of the jungle of the meesupulimala forest and it has a panoramic view of the whole valley below.

p1

After fresh-up and breakfast, we would start trekking from the campsite towards Rhodo valley. Initially, the terrain is little steep till we reach waterfall lagoon, from here the terrain keeps gaining altitude as well lose it.

p2

The terrain goes through dense jungle, long grass, pine trees beside beautiful water stream assures you that you are into a heavenly atmosphere.

p3

Rhodo Valley starts just after reaching the jeep track on the trail. Do look out for rhododendron flowers by the side of the route. This flowers definitely win your heart with its different colors and abundance nature.

p4

From here to about 2km is forest check post in the Rhodo valley. The panoramic view from the viewpoint of this check post is very rejuvenating.

p5

The Lush green forest, the green carpet on the small dome hills looks very beautiful. You could also spot some wild elephants group from this point.

p6

After descending for a couple of meters, we would enter the dense forest of long grass and then a meadow walk on soft grass for a little while.

p7

We would be crossing about 6 more small hills to reach our peak. The distance from Rhodo Valley check post to the peak is about 4 km one side but believe me, the time flies so fast that it seems you just crossed these check post couple of minutes back.

p8

We would have our packed lunch on the peak while enjoying the beauty before our eyes, it’s a very satisfying feeling.

p9

Explore for a while for photos and then would start descending from the peak back to the campsite through the same route.

p10

After fresh-up and snacks, we would play some games and enjoy a campfire while a hot dinner.

p11

Day 2:

Next morning, we would explore a waterfall about nearby the campsite

p12

And then would return back to Munnar forest department through jeep and back to Bangalore on Sunday night.

Agumbe Rainforest Ecology – Trek & Camping 14 - 17 Jun 2018.

Although this was our first trek with Nature Walkers, it didn’t feel like that from the very first minute we met Shane our outdoor leader and then one by one the group we were going with. Expectation I set for this trip was to relax, have some fresh air, go far away from the polluted busy environment and de-stress. I must admit I got much more than my expectations. Forest walks, a dip in a clear flowing stream of water (twice actually), a small trek to a peak where we had scenic view of nature and greenery, first aid for snake bite session, session on King Cobra, wildlife photography, night walks, butterflies, camping in tents, tasty home cooked meals. We got a chance to be interacting with the Kalinga Center (KCRE) team (Gowrishankar, Prashant and Priyanka). They shared their experiences with rescuing king Cobras, we watched an amazing documentary featuring their rescue operations. This interaction was very informative and we learnt a lot about wildlife and their ecology. We even got a chance to have a quick stop at Sringeri temple, on our way back to Bangalore.

Away from network, it was great to disconnect from the virtual world and connect with nature.

Nature walkers have an amazing zeal that is contagious. Their passion to make every experience into a memorable one is evident in their actions and their interactions. Shane made sure all of us were always enjoying, having fun, kept us engaged and kept motivating me specially during the trek, which was a piece of cake for everyone else, including my 11-year-old daughter.

Thanks to Hemant and Amrita for constantly being in touch with their recommendations and help with planning this trip. Thanks to everyone on the trip with us, specially our awesome DJ Srikanth who also entertained us with his energetic dance, our illusionist Rahul who presented jaw dropping tricks during the trip, and everyone else contributing their share of fun Satish, Sanil, Gopalan, Shane, Shreya, Lalitha, thanks for making this a wonderful experience.

If you are looking for having a fun weekend, you can blindly pick any trip with Nature Walkers and I can guarantee, you won’t be disappointed. This is the testimonial I received from every repeat trekker on our trip. I am definitely motivated to tick off every trip they organize. Keep going Nature Walkers, looking forward to a lot of fun.

I must admit that I already miss the wonderful trip we had welcoming this new year. We were informed that this trip would be more to chill than to trek and you were absolutely right Mr. Hemant.

As soon as we reached Gokarna beach we left no time in taking a dip in the sea. Then we had a long walk on the beach and a small trek to reach Yana waterfalls. It was fun diving and swimming in the fresh cold waters.

We were back to the beach to witness a beautiful sunset and the view was mesmerizing and to top it off we played beach football in this stunning setting.

We missed the rain in rain dance but danced our hearts out for more than 3 hours!!

We welcomed the new year with colorful sky lanterns and fireworks. The interesting part was that we were enjoying every moment with some amazing people who had become good friends in no time!

On our way back, we played Mafia with our huge team of around 30 people and Asav was a cunning mafia rallying till the end fooling all the poor villagers.

Lastly, I would like to thank Hemant, Anupama and Manoj for organizing this amazing trip and I should mention that I have seen very few people with Hemant’s level of patience. Also, made some wonderful friends in Nikhil, Harsh, Rupali, Tanwi, Anupama, Manish and Hemant.

I have a feeling that the best day of the year is already done with this trip, but I look forward to my next trip with NatureWalkers which is going to take fun quotient to the next level and have some peaceful time off from our hectic job schedule.

PS: I had to wait till weekend to write this review as I had to dive directly into work after this awesome trip. Also, if it wasn’t for my friend Asav I wouldn’t have made this super awesome trip.
