Trip to Wayanad: Part II

Day 3: The last and final day we planned to visit the Meen Mutty waterfalls. Meenmutty is located 29 km from Kalpetta. It is a three-tiered waterfall with a height of 300 metres. It is the largest and most spectacular waterfall in the Wayanad District. It needs is a 2 km hike though the jungle from the main Ooty Road. It is Kerala’s second largest waterfall and the one most unspoiled in its natural setting. Each of its three tiers requires a separate hike through a moist, deciduous forest. The path is quiet dangerous and tiresome but, the waterfalls is worth it. We set out towards the start on foot where a guide from the forest department was to join us. Walking through the tea and coffee plantations was pleasant. It wasn’t raining and it was a beautiful morning. The guide joined us and we began the descent into the depth of the valley through the jungle. The path grew narrower and narrower till there was no path left to tread on. It was just rocks, edges and ropes. I had no idea, this was such a treacherous path.
I was reluctant to go on initially. But, then again the same thing happened, the excitement got to me and I decided to give in all I had on this final escapade of ours. We were climbing down and down into the valley and now I was having a great time. After a while we could hear the sound of water flowing. Came across a small waterfall, crossed through the fall and moved on. Now the sound of water grew louder, the more we descended the louder it grew. A point came … we got a glimpse of the falls but, we had to move further … we moved … the frenzy got to us and then … there were the falls … raging and furious. It was awesome!! The whole trek seemed worth it. The Sun came out and formed a beautiful rainbow at the falls. What I call … Nature at its best. Now we had to get back to where we had started. This was a climb up the hill. Certainly not my favorite part of an adventure! We started back once again. I huffed and puffed and huffed and puffed and managed to reached back on top … another victorious moment … another sense of achievement that comes through stretching to the limit.
Now, we settled back in our traveler and headed back to Bangalore. A great trip indeed!! Cheers to us!!

Behold the rainbow @ Meen Mutty
