    SIXTH GEAR: HEY CLOUDS LETS RIDE

    After an uneasy sleepy night, I woke up very early in the morning. It was cloudy and dark. Already there had been early showers and people of this small Vagamon village were getting busy in their work.
    Sitting by the window I was just thinking about previous days stories and outcomes.

    What if I would have not chosen the less travelled route?
    What if I would have not turned towards the waterfalls?
    What would have happened if something would have happened in that forest?
    What if I would have not ever come out of that waterfall while it was raining?
    But for thank goodness nothing such happened.
    This is all part of my destiny; destiny which I am chasing from these days. A journey which I actually wanted. A journey of my type where it is me, my adventures and my memories.
    With all these thoughts I resumed my day. It was time to continue the journey, keep on the chase and have adventure of my lifetime.

    0700hrs on the clock, I was strapping the saddle bag and tank bag on the bike. It was still not a clear morning and due to cloudy weather it seemed to be very dull.
    Mind was getting lethargic and lazy, but heart was already lost in these hills and clouds. I was in Vagamon for the first. Almost all the places in this trip were for the first time.

    Hotel owner was very humble and he even provided a safe parking and also suggested which all places can be visited and where I can have good food.
    Soon I was on the wet roads of Vagamon and the first place whih I wanted to visit was the Pine Valley. From main village Pine Valley is around 6 kms and it bypasses from the Green Meadows, which I visited last evening.

    Before heading for the Pine Valley, I stopped for breakfast at a small restaurant-cum-home. It was quite an unusual scene for me as the Father was busy preparing clothes for her daughter to send her to school and the daughter-mother were engaged to prepare breakfast.
    I was happily enjoying Appam and egg curry. Nice to see people making their kids specially girl child literate and educated. And after all its Kerala, one of the most literate states of India.
    Anticipating rains, it started raining cats and dogs. Quickly I had to put on rain cover on the luggage and I had my raincoat on. Seems it is going to be a long rainy day and even clouds were not in a mood to go stop.
    Bidding adieu to the happy family, I started my ride in rain. Guess the density of the rain decreased, and I was enjoying the light shower on my visor. Viper please. Hehe.

    Road to this place is quite narrow, and I was just following either the sign boards or the human gps Cheta, where is this Pine valley.
    Last sign board said Pine Valley on left, and as I took left I saw Adraks Summer Sand Hill Resort. Le me confused I kept on seeing the entrance gate which led to a fine restaurant and was wondering how come Pine Valley has disappeared and a resort is there. Later upon asking on guard he said take right and go inside.
    After quietly observing I saw there was a narrow route passing through the hawker sheds. And the very next moment I was crossing the hawkers who were quite puzzled to see a bike heavily loaded with a person in raincoat and passing through the narrow lane. Even the passersby were astonished to see a bike being taken inside.

    Soon the mud trails changed into stone-paved, narrow bumpy route going downwards directly into Pine Valley. I stopped at that places, removed my helmet and was lift head up.
    MASHALLAH waah were my first words. Endless series of Pine trees, with almost whole of the jungle and skies covered up. I just wanted to go more and more deep into these trees and started descending downwards on the the bumpy slope. This route is mainly made up for walkers and some jeeps which come inside to certain distance. But I was on a bike.
    Whose gonna stop me, and I started riding inside the jungle. There were already 2 jeeps inside right on the route and I have to dodge them so that I dont run into them and also dont falls of from the stone paved route.

    Due to the rains, dampness and the dense Pine Forest, whole of the ambience was turned into red. Yes you read it right. When the leaves of the pine forest falls and dry up they turn into red and then with the rains it just gave a clean red look to the whole forest.

    I parked my bike and was tempting to run around the trees and take lot of photographs. Parked the bike in woods beside a tree and took my camera all wrapped in polythene and small cloth to keep it dry.

    These trees were endless, and were glooming high in the skies. I went ahead and the route descended more downwards deep into the woods. Was just loving the whole ambience, and thought of taking half day halt here, but due to continuous rains and damn weather I didnt changed my mind and kept exploring these woods.
    It was one special kind and a very different experience to ride through these trees, a route less travelled or not meant for travelling, but hereby I make my own routes and cross over them.
    I fell in love with those trees, sitting under them I just thought of these words by Gabriela Mistral:

    Pine Forest
    Let us go now into the forest.
    Trees will pass by your face,
    and I will stop and offer you to them,
    but they cannot bend down.
    The night watches over its creatures,
    except for the pine trees that never change:
    the old wounded springs that spring
    blessed gum, eternal afternoons.
    If they could, the trees would lift you
    and carry you from valley to valley,
    and you would pass from arm to arm,
    a child running
    from father to father


    An hour passed by exploring the forest and I made a move out of the forest. I was riding along the narrow roads off the Vagamon. It was raining and everything was wet. Some other picture was running in my mind and by now I was entering the green tea estates of Elappara.

    Seems taking the less traveled route or the offbeat routes have become by habit or identity. I wanted to go towards Kumily but I aint interested in just touching miles to miles Its better to explore through the under-rated tea estates of Elappara. It was raining hard and I was having my own melodrama with clouds. Either these clouds use to distract me from the ride or use to clea the place before I reach the place. Funny isnt it but that was actually happening.

    Wonder why tea estates of Elapara, Alady and Marykulam are so much underrated. All these villages just came out to be a perfect miniscule in front of my eyes while passing them with fewer people living there and fewer animals sitting by road. Seems everything was small for them. Small tea states, small hill slopes, narrow roads and even moderate to shorter sized people. Every place has its own beauty and I was just enjoying it.

    Bloody Leeches
    I was passing by tea states, wiping off water from my visor I felt something is crawling in front of my face. Bloody hell, whats this? Slowed down on wet roads just to find out that a Leech was crawling on helmet.
    Holy mother of God, how on earth did it fall on my Helmet. Quickly I just tried to remove it off and it started sticking on hand. After getting rid of it I was back to riding and couple of minutes later I found something biting on my neck.
    Panic break and I understood its Leeches again. I was so freaked out that without balancing the bike I was in hurry to remove it off from my body. I started having a quick check of myself, looking if there isnt any more leeches. This wasnt enough and when I went ahead felt some irritation on my hand.

    Oh my god I guess I have got infected with leeches. As soon as I stopped to check it, blood was all over the wrist and I have to quickly wipe it off. This one was bad and blood flow not stopping. Everytime I wipe it off, it used to come out.

    Even I was not having newspaper, best cure for this problem. A local was observing me on this damp day and he quickly came with small torn out paper and told me to keep it there. Tied it along with my handkerchief I removed off my full rain coat, seeing couple of more leeches infesting and attempting to get in contact with me. While removing them I realized I kept my helmet on one of the dead Pine trees trunk and thus some came through helmet and while taking pictures I sat down on the damp surface of forest.
    Good riddance I resumed my ride and was nearing to Kumily and took a halt to have lunch.

    Story continues
    For lunch I stopped at Cardamom Restaurant, after looking at the poster of Authentic Kerala Chicken Biryani. Though most of the rides were through the villages and off beat places but I was trying best to taste the best cuisines whenever possible. Quickly I ordered Chicken Biryani which turned out to be really delicious and it was enough to make lazy for the afternoon ride.

    By now rains have stopped and I was entering Thekkady. I had plans of coming to Kumily but for what I really didnt think of that. I knew that in Thekkady, there is Periyar National Park and even Jeep Safari is available to visit the far reaches in and around Thekkady.
    Neither I found any adventurous thing in it nor there was anything challenging. Instead I knew the ghat section of Kumily is quite tempting and suddenly I was craving for it. Quickly I rushed towards Kumily theni highway and crossed the forest checkpost.
    Wet roads and usual Kerala traffic, but who cares, I had already become accustomed to it and just to enjoy the ride I was trying to slide through the corners. This particular ghat section has Bamboo trees on both of its sides. This particular ghat section lies on the Kerala and Tamil nadu border and so there was drivers and riders of both type on this road. Soon after the ghat sections completed and straight highways to Gudalur appeared it was time for me to take a u-turn and enjoy the ride back to Kumily.
    Overall it was a fun session and I was happy on my decision of going for some fast adrenaline pumping riding session.

    By now rains had completely stopped and I was heading towards Idduki. After having some refreshments at Kattapana I continued on the narrow roads. Since clouds have played there part for almost more than half of the day, they became quite sane enough and by now Sun was glooming on some of the peaks of Idduki forests.

    It was already 1700hrs and I was rushing to reach Calvary Mount. Sign boards started showing up Calvary Mount next 5 kms, next 3 kms and then there was a sudden diversion up towards the hill on my left. I just revved my engine to reach at the top as soon as possible.

    Ascend was quite sharp and there was cemented road leading to forest department checkpost with a gate and guard waiting for me. Earlier I read online that anyone can take their vehicle inside but I was surprised to see such gate there. Seems Kerala Govt. is taking are of the things and the forest department had started controlling the place.
    After paying the entry fee I quickly unstrapped my tripod and took out my camera and ran towards the edge.

    My perseverance paid off, the test brought its rewards in the form of one of the most stunning panoramas. The ravishingly scenic Calvary opened up its majestic panorama of Idukki reservoir. The meandering lake through the high mountains feasted my eyes. Undeniably a useful and fun filled time spent at the realms of nature.
    Spent an hour around there clicking numerous pictures, sitting on the rocks and trying to listen the song of the wind. Updated the blog and processed some pictures sitting beside

    My plan was to take a night halt there, but everytime ball doesnt falls in my court and forest department people denied it. Rather they pointed out that now new rooms and houses are being made along the slope where people can stay for a night and enjoy the night time up here. But right now no; a big NO.
    With a sad face I descended through the thin strip.

    Senorita: whats next, why are you sad?
    Me: (grumbled) nothing, I dont want talk, buggers didnt allow to stay there.
    Senorita: oho calm down, move ahead and check out something good happens.
    Me: there is nothing coming up in mind, its already getting dark.
    Senorita: what about the Idukki dam.
    Me: good option lets go.


    Reached Idukki dam at around 1840hrs just to find that the entry to the dam gets closed at around 1800hrs.
    Seems a bad evening. I was bit restless and wanted to ride more and explore more, and the only option was just to ride in night knowing nothing but keep on munching miles.

    Moreover I wasnt in a mood to stop nor wanted to hit state highways. Guess it was time to check the goggle maps which I have been avoiding in the trip and looked for some inner routes in between Idukki and Munnar.
    Stopped at some place just to play around with camera and streak of lights before calling it off for the day somewhere enroute Anachal(small village).

    Day well spent with numerous occasion of playing hide and seek with the mad clouds. They were so found of me as if following me everywhere where I went.
    Mad clouds I whispered and slept off before putting everything to get dried and charged up for the final run for the next day.

    REVERSE GEAR - HOME RUN MASALA MAAR KE


    Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey." - Pat Conroy

    Tick tock tick tock, mind wakes up not due to alarm, just into the habit of getting up for every days adventure. Sitting by the chair saw the sun came up with a promise of bright and sunny day. No longer would I be staying awake in loneliest of places, shivering in winds from top of the hills, no longer would my route present breathtaking views and memorable experiences round every corner

    There were different thoughts coming up while getting ready as I would be packing my saddle bags for the last time in this road trip. This would be just fly away in and locked for the next time. Soon I would be riding to the monotonous life, witness the traffic being piled up in the jungles of concrete. The cool breeze of the jungle would be replaced by the smog of the city air.
    It was time for Home Run. Return journeys are usually boring, fast and numb for me, and I was well aware of those mood swings which I get. But before getting back to loud city, it was time for one last time to take a big U turn, add some masala in return journey.

    I was somewhere in between Munnar and Idukki and I already planned up to visit some places which I had to miss because of ruling out some places as I didnt get the permit.
    These places were somewhere south In Kerala and I was in northern part. So by now you may guess why I referred U turn. Anchuruli Tunnel, Thenmala Dam and one my favorite train bridge were to be visited today.

    Checked out, greeted the room owner and strapped the bags tightly and firmly as it was going to be a long ride. By now these routes and this state has become dear to me and I had already decided where would be next trip to.
    After all a true journey is when one gets the idea and finalizes for next journey beforehand. Sun was bright and there was cool breeze, and thus the start was pretty good as I again I was not bugged up by any traffic as I took the hill roads of Munnar-Idukki bypassing the highway through the small villages.

    Hills, forests, valley and river stream, these became the usual scene and I was enjoying the early morning ride through the single lane roads of Sellampara and Kallarkutty. Early morning visit to Sellampara power plant was quite refreshing as the cool breeze from the river on the bridge makes one energetic.

    Soon after crossing the Idukki Township, I thought of visiti8ng the Idukki dam which I missed visiting last evening, but seems they have closed the entry due to some official reasons. I kept on continuing till Kattapana.
    After reaching Kattapana, I was busy asking people about the way to Anchuruli waterfalls. Some sane ones did guided me properly and I was sailing on the roads of Kattapana.

    One never knows when cops turn up on Kerala Roads, and exactly same thing happened. Thank goodness there wasnt any interceptor nor was speeding too much, but after looking me completely geared up and carrying lot of luggage they just waved me off. Moving ahead I was stopped again where Mr Thomas from Kerala Police asked me about my trip and profession, he reminded me that he has served in Army for 21 years and have been posted in Bangalore too, suggested me to ride safe and enjoy the ride.

    Good to get blessings and wishes from such people along the journey.
    I was in network zone and for own benefit I switched on gprs just to not get diverted to some other roads.

    Soon I was at the edge of Anchuruli Waterfalls beside Idukki reservoir. Therev is one small shop on the rocks which is run by an elderly person with limited stocks of some chips and biscuits other than water. I parked my bike, had some refreshment at his place and also asked him if parking the bike was safe enough, he smiled and said go safely.
    Due to recent rains, soil was eroded and there were lots of stone before reaching to the edge.

    Anchuruli waterfalls open through Anchuruli tunnel and water goes directly to the Idukki reservoir. Intensity and volume of water in waterfalls was quite strong.
    This place is surrounded by thick woods and it gives a wonderful panoramic view of nature consisting of three elements of nature land, water and sky.

    Looking at the tunnel it was very trumpeting to go for tunnel trek, but the old man strictly denied and asked not to because of recent rains and higher intensity of water current from some days.
    I pacified myself by clicking picture in front of tunnel standing on small rocks just floating at edge of waterfalls. Even thought of how good it would be to start cliff jumping from here in the waterfalls.
    Didnt look where I was going; I just wanted to go there and was happy to visit this place. For sure cave trek is left for next time. Lots of adventure on this time but yes lot more to come.

    Day was getting hotter and there was no sign of rain in this part of the hills. It was time for a run to south Kerala towards Punalur and then Thenmala. This meant a long ride through the struggling roads of Kerala roads.
    As said earlier when you are in land of Mallus ride like Mallus, and following this concept I kept on riding until to reach Ranny and then Pathananmthitta. I started getting the sleep strokes and it was time to go in auto pilot mode.

    Senorita: you always sleep at such time.
    Me: feeling bored until highways cant help
    Senorita: excuses, excuses and only excuses.
    Me: are avoiding Pilot mode today???
    Senorita: bring it on.


    As usual I was in a sleepy mode though cautious over it, guess I am used to it or its just I am lucky enough to have controls even while sleeping.
    Soon I found a much awaited tea stall and had tea near Pathananmthitta.

    By the time I was nearing Sabrimala highway, dark clouds were all around and. One of the finest and most beautiful Hill ride was of this section were on to left one goes to Sabrimala and straight goes to Punalur. This section of roads have fine road markings, with proper food joints and smoothest roads I had in this trip.

    Anyways I was not much in a desire of going to Sabrimala and reached Punalur. While it was drizzling by now I stopped at a road side food stall just to have some hot pakodas and tea, just to enjoy the late rainy afternoon.
    One cant beat the fun of having pakodas and tea while it is raining. Rains stopped and there was water at many places. Route to Punalur to Thenmala is very scenic and again turns into hill slops with wider roads and clouds dancing over me, threatening to rain.

    It was around 1600hrs and I saw the board of Thenmala dam. Dam was rushing and gushing with water and whole area was getting covered with thick clouds giving a bad sign for my onward. Visited the dam and clicked the pictures from watch tower.
    By now I was seeing the forests of Rosemala were getting heavy rains and clouds were approaching towards me.

    I moved on to last location of my journey and one of the most favorite location on this route Kollam-Thenmala-Sengottai meter gauge route which passes through an arch bridge above the NH208.
    My patience and hardship paid off after getting the first glance of the Arch Bridge. Delighted and excited I was jumping in middle of road and other vehicles passing by honked me telling as if side hut ke nacho be.

    I did it whatever I wanted to do in this journey, I covered almost all the places, randomly selecting them and visiting them from all possible routes. Being present at the Arch Bridge is like a milestone, pretending to be a landmark towards the end my journey.

    Initially plan was to cover this place in starting days, but as I got the news of getting the permit cancelled, plan was in jeopardy.
    But destiny had its own game and God helped me in reaching for it.
    Guess this Chase for the Destiny is accomplished and instead of regrets of missing some places, I was happy and was cherished the moments.

    I patted senorita too who had been strong and steady in this whole trip.
    Even God wanted me to celebrate the moment and by the time this masala session ends, there were no rains, even though clouds were waiting hard for it.
    It was time to start the real home run; time to hit the highways, wave away those smiling faces, cherish those moments and live.

    Guys! I am coming home I said before cranking up the engine.
    No matter how much one loves off-roading, off beat places and rough terrains, but whenever it comes to high speed long runs, I aint stopping myself from speeding, that when it was already night and as my dear friend Addy says raat mein iske andar mata ajatai hai I just kept pulling the throttle and kept cruising through the highway.

    Action replay
    Return ride was long and tedious, not because of distance but because of rains, high beam lighted incoming bigger vehicles and then small congested towns and villages were Tamil Nadu police have blocked all the bypasses just to pass through the city. Till Madurai it was painful job and after that endless straight roads.
    But despite these hardships and troublesome I was lost in tunes of previous 6 days. A complete action replay was going on and everything was coming as a flashback. What I wanted I did. What I was expecting I got it. I felt fulfilled and was not at all disappointed with the experiences and adventure which I have went into.
    I am happy that my destiny chooses me in this way and fortunate enough to enjoy all the places. These all memories were getting quoted in my wandering book with all those emotions, experiences, smiling faces and incidents. I felt lucky enough to be graced with such moments which I will relive and share with others in my back own world.

    Home Sweet Home
    Mind, body and soul, all these strings are attached through a single chord through heart, and one goes wherever heart takes it.
    It started raining and soon I was out of the hills. There was sadness that I am leaving this place to go back, but there was anxiety to live the cherished moments.
    Before running the final lap I called up friends and family that I did it finally and coming home.
    Its been around a decade I have been living away from home and from parents. One realizes importance of family and home more by living far from them. Your own people and your things matter in your life.
    There is no better place in world than your home, lying down on your bed looking at the cupboard at the pictures and living those moments. Wandering is just a mantra or moksha to achieve their importance and love in life, it provides and paves path to reach it.

    I never wanted this to end, but having followed the blog on TW's site, I knew when you made the last update (before this) few days ago that it's about to end.
    Frankly, irrespective of the results (very well deserved though!) I like the plethora of emotions and experiences one gets to see/imagine while going through your log.

    Just beautiful! Would wait to read a new log soon (monsoon ride and others that may follow) from your end. And bugger schedule won't let me ride alongside the wanderer, what an irony!

    That is big bunch appreciation. My aim was to just jort down and knit all the emotions and episodes together originally. Some named it a movie, some as adventure, but for me it was a lifetime of experiences which is just inculcating me to go for more and more ride and to enjoy each and every place I visit, emotions I feel and thanks each smiling face I pass across.

    And you know me. I am a lazy ass in converting my notes to tlog. But yes Gujarat Tlog and recent mosoon ride tlog will be up. Hopefully by weekend.

    By the way ride wide choro its time to only drive drive and drive.

    Riding faster then every one else will only guarantees you will ride alone.
