Meenmutty - Ponmudi trip

27/Jun/09 (Sat) - It was a fantastic day of thrill and enjoyment. Enjoying the lovely stream of water and feeling the drizzle on the peak of a mountain. Yes its a trip to Ponmudi via Meenmutty. Ponmudi is around 60 kms from Thiruvananthapuram. Its the most preferred hill station nearby Thiruvananthapuram. On the way to Ponmudi is Meenmutty.
We started the journey at 9:15 AM. We were a group of nine (Jamnas, Vijayakumar, Arun, Shibin, Lijin, Nijas, Anish, Shaiju). We stopped at Vithura for getting the lunch. Since there are a few restaurants available near by Meenmutty and Ponmudi we decided to pack the lunch. We reached Meenmutty at 11:35Am. The entry pass cost Rs210, which includes the parking fees.
For reaching the waterfalls we have to walk upto 1.5 kms inside the forest. If needed the authorities will allot a guide for us. We got a guide for the navigation. We started walking through the forest sharing jokes, taking snaps etc. After some half an hours of walking we reached the waterfalls. On the way we can see the stream of water flowing inside the forest.
Its a lovely location to take snaps, near the waterfall. The picture shows how the guys are keen to focus for the camera.
Its quite natural to play in the water. But make sure that you wont miss your sandals.

After spending some time near the waterfalls we returned back to the entry point, we had bath from the nearby water stream. Bathing is not allowed near the water fall as it is dangerous.After having bath we headed to Ponmudi. It took some half an hour to reach Ponmudi from Meenmutty.
We reached Ponmudi at 4:15 PM. There is an entry pass for Ponmudi. Its the lovely climate that attracts the tourists. The fog makes very hard to see anything beyond a small distance. And the drizzle makes the climate much more attractive. We spend few hours there on top of the peak.
We returned back at 7:00 PM. We were the last one to leave from Ponmudi. The driver had a tough time driving in the fog. Its was a lovely day of enjoyment.
