Journey to the Wildside of life

Wildlife is something that everyone would love to experience and that is what i decided to do have the location fixed for my ride this time and place where very few have visited and it is a tiger reserve. Parambikulam Tiger Reserve, which also includes the erstwhile Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary, is a 391 square kilometers protected area in Chittur taluk in Palakkad district of Kerala state, South India.

Two mean machines and 3 of us had decided take off …Friday night the 9th Dec 2016 at 10pm we where supposed to start but unfortunate reasons we had some commitments to take care and started our journey at 11:45pm and all were starving for food, so we decided to reach A2B after Shoolagiri which is around 57kms approx from the start point. Closing time and got 2 idly’s per head to eat and keep us awake the complete night to ride. Around 1:30am started the journey and few pit stops for tea’s we reached the Tiger hill resort by 6:15am which is around 414kms Google map click here.

Two check points, one is TN and other one is Kerala to reach Parambikulam. Both we had a fee of Rs.600/- approx for 3 and camera. Journey to the place takes approx 1hour due to road conditions.

With a lot of disappointments we were about to head to reach the gate and the bus stops for a break inside the Parambikullam village.

Disappointed visitors

This kid who came along did not see her at first but when we stopped and were having some snacks this cute kid got our attention….and made us feel better and kept us smiling all the way.

We reached the gate and we were heading back and found these 2 elephants getting ready for the safari for the guests who were staying at the jungle lodges.

Reached the resort and had food, the stay and food is really worth in this place. we crashed early to the bed and ended our day 1.

Day2: Early morning at 8pm we left the resort and headed towards another destination Valparai  is a Taluk and hill station in the Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu, India. It is located 3,500 feet (1,100 m) above sea level on the Anaimalai Hills range of the Western Ghats, at a distance of 100 kilometres (62 mi) from Coimbatore and 65 kilometres (40 mi) from Pollachi. There are 40 hairpin bends on the way up to Valparai from Azhiyar. While major portions of the land are owned by private tea companies, large forest areas continue to be out of bounds.

This location is approx 54kms from the place where we stayed and the journey to this place takes easy 2hours. we reached the hill and had Vada’s as breakfast which is really yummy and was hot…..after the heavy breakfast we visited the Sholayar dam did some photography.

Started our return journey to return back to Bangalore it is 458kms. Around 2:45pm we were on the way through the village roads and roads were really good….one of my cousin was waiting for us to reach at Salem for riding back to Bangalore with us.

Had our lunch around 4:45pm and then started to head back from Salem with him. Return journey was real difficult as we were falling asleep but reached home by 8pm. Amazing trip and good company to enjoy with thanks a lot guy’s for making it for this journey.
