This will be one of the most memorable treks i have ever had in my life as this is my first anyways . 11 Guys mostly college mates from bangalore and chennai decided to visit Wayanad on October 2 – October 4 . As with most other bachelor trips , it started of as a casual email conversation between me saikrishna and vins . Although there was very limited time and all sorts of odds we managed to pull it off .
Six guys from Chennai joined us in bangalore on October 2 morning , we had a tempo traveller arranged for all the travel . Started at 5:30 Am and hit the mysore road ( it was bliss driving there ) . After finishing the breakfast on the way we reached Sulthan bathery through Gundulpet .
We had arranged for a dormitory in ambalavoil near sulthan bathery and reached there around 2pm . Although the hotel was far from what we expected it was very cheap for 11 people and sufficed our needs . We had torrential rains on 2nd and 3rd october . Inspite of that we visited places like Edukkal caves , kolapara dam on the first two days .
Our main intention of the trip was to do some kind of trek , the Menmutty falls had a landslide so it was cut off . Our last resort was trekking on the Chembra peek , and decided that we will visit that on sunday morning hoping that the rain gods will be kind enough .
The trek on the chembra peek starts in a estate and takes around 6 hours to complete . We had a great time the journey up was very easy and good . We reached the heartshaped lake on the top of the chembra and decided to return .
The journey downwards very slippery and most of the guys managed to fall and slip took tremendous difficulties in reaching the base . We could not have been more lucky , was totally flabbergasted by the change of fortunes . On october 2 / 3 we had so much rain , everyone was skeptical about the whole trip .
May be i will quote Paulo here “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” .
