  • Exploring Kanyakumari

    I know many people who have ridden to Kanyakumari and most of them just know only the Kanyakumari Seashore. So I thought of posting this here to let know my fellow Bikers few places around there.

    I came to Chennai for my studies in 2006 and I'm still in Chennai but I travel home once in 3 months or so. I've my bikes and gears in Chennai. I only have a set of basic gloves and helmet and jacket at hometown. Also I used to ride my Cousin's R15 when I go there.

    Last month when Chennai was breathing fire, I traveled home for Elections and the weather there was perfect for Biking. It was drizzling throughout the day but there was no waterlog in the roads. I wanted to get my Aadhaar card and also had an appointment with Dentist.... But I'm the kind of guy who forgets the World when the Neutral light fades away...

    4 day vacation as it happened.

          A bike on the road is worth two in the shed.

            Chittaar 1 Dam

            Chittaar 1 Dam

            Around 60kms from Kanyakumari.

            The roads (after diverting from Kanyakumari - Trivandrum Highway) to this Dam are the best (beautiful) in the District. Rubber estate in both sides for few kms, the beautiful slanding Z curve just after Pechiparai Dam, the final uphill stretch before the Dam where you'll find only Pineapple bushes and a type of jack trees (ayanni chakka) for few kms.

            You and your Bike can touch the Waters here. My personal favorite

            (There's another bigger and beautiful Dam, Chittaar 2 Dam which is few kms away from C1 Dam but I haven't been there till date.)

              Muttam Fishing Harbor

              From the same Trivandrum - Kanyakumari highway if you take the opposite side (to that of going ty Chittaar) , you'll end up at Colachel at the last and in riding on the Coast lane you'll get to Muttam easily. There's this fishing Harbor and a beautiful Beach. The beach which has been in many Tamil movies from Kadalora Kavidhaigal to Mariyan. Knows for its blueish and clean looks.
              Also we can ride in roads in middle of the sea in the structures build to prevent high waves entering the harbor. (that part of the Harbor where the boats are docked and fishes are auctioned will smell like I wont want to tell)

              Distance should be 30 to 40kms from Kanyakumari
