    Default Enjoyin beaches, waterfalls and Backwaters of kerala

    Enjoyin beaches, waterfalls and Backwaters

    Riders- Mibhin & Dustin(My Colleague)
    Ride - Dustins P200

    Destination - Kerala

    We had planned thsi trip to the GOD'S OWN COUNTRY long time back but were not able to do due to leave constraints. So this time we planned to do this trip during our Week offs. We work in a BPO and since our Process is a 24/7 one so our offs were on Tuesday & Wednesday, we planned of leaving towards kerala on Monday afternoon after finishing our Shifts.

    Both of us got out of office By 12 first we took our luggage from our respective places and went to another friends place to borough his bag, coz he had a big trekking bag which could carry a lot of luggage. Then exactly at one we started towards Hosur Road. The traffic was heavy and the SUN was on our head, bright and HOT.

    Somehow none of us can see the pictures! It says Beaches, Waterfalls and what not... I opened the thread and could not find much of any of that.
    The Wheel was a great invention; Two Wheels with a Motor in between was even better!

    3 Pics are updated in the 1st post.

    We Reached Hosur at Around 2 and filled up the tank and Again we started the Krishnagiri Roads are smooth like butter to rip around, Reached Dharmapuri at 3:30 and stopped for lunch at a hotel close to the lone traffic signal in Dharmapuri.

    We Started bak at 4 from there and Reached mettur at around 5:30 jus before sunset to click some pics of the Dam, Then From there It was Rip fest for us. After we passed bhavani it started pouring, we stopped for 10 mins and luckily it stopped and then it was non stop until coimbatore, reached there by 8, had a tea in coimbatore and then again started towards palakkad and reached there by 9 and had a half an hour break there, then it was a hell ride from there untill trichur coz the roads are 2 lane ones and with pot holes and all the busses towards Bangalore & chennai will come with high beam on and they drive like if they own that road. We followed few cars which had good headlight to illuminate our way too and which is going at speeds of 70-80kmph.

    Finally exactly by 12 midnight we reached my cousins place in Chalakudi to end the days trip. Had Nice Kerala style chicken and rice and slept off.

    DAY 2

    Since we slept only by 1:30 am previous night i woke up only by 9 and By 10:30 we were ready to head to Allepey, We kept our luggage at my cousins place and took things necessary to play in water(towel, shorts etc etc), after having a proper kerala breakfast(Puttu and Kadala), we started towards allepey........
