    Ride safe.
    Thanks Haroon - Glad you liked the log / pictures.

    Sri Lanka does look more similar to Kerala and hence I'm still tentative of planning a full fledged ride there. If i could get a similar view in my own state / neighboring state why should i invest much more to see it in a foreign land?

    And after a longback you're putting a triplog.,

    Its always great to read your t'log...

    Thanks for your efforts to bringing it up after the 2nd attempt...

    I personally love these words
    Thank you!!

    Like wise, It was good riding with you & Deepak - You are as experienced as me, Not to get formal for being experienced in anything. I did drop the bike - So I'm not perfect in any sense

    So, September it would be when we ride there again

    Beautiful place... perfect for a small gang to go, prepare own food, drink, dance, bonfire and ofcourse, awesome Tea.

    Well done.

    Wink Meghamalai - I have been there too

    Very nice Travelogue and superb photos Ananth . I belog to the city Cumbum, Theni District and work here in Chennai. 7 months back I had an unplanned solo trip to Meghamalai for the first time. Wow, surprisingly its a wonderful place and I have enjoyed the trip a lot and felt very refreshed after the trip. I'm happy to share my trip photos here - https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...3&l=2446988272
    Happy Touring buddy !

    Beautiful pictures! Looks like a great off beat place. I wonder how beautiful it would be just after the rains with more water in that dam/lake

    Simple and crisp review, Ananth. Keep it coming and superb photos by the way. Waiting for the next ride to catch up with you guys

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Ananth...this one place was left for nature itself....this place again would get commercialised...I had been to this place twice now and have never shared the snaps or anything about this place

    Similarly Kollimalai was one and now look at the number of people going there, just 4 yrs back that was like 1 typical village (though not much change, but still little commercialisation)

    But your narration was excellent and also the snaps.

    There are quite a lot of such destinations across in all states, lets not commercialise those places too. just my thought.
    Never Give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about.

    Cheers
