When nature calls ( Part II ) - Meenmutty Falls, Kallar, Trivandrum
After relaxing at Ponmudi hill station ( If you have not read that episode, the link is WHEN NATURE CALLS ( PART I ) : PONMUDI HILL STATION, TRIVANDRUM and then continue ) we decided to move, as it started to get more and more crowded. We descended to the next pitstop, Meenmutty falls, Kallar, located near the Neyyar Reservoir area. No transportation is available to the top of waterfalls so visitors have to trek approximately 2km through the dense forests to reach the falls.
We paid the entrance fee, and started towards to falls. Right after we crossed the gates we first saw a small stream of water crossing our path. We were super excited, so we stopped and jumped out to feel some nature. The stream of water was shallow and clear, with tiny fishes tickling our feet.
As we started our trek, we could see a stream of water towards our left. This was a picnic spot where families can relax, bath and even have food. This is almost where the falls end. Please make sure that kids are not let loose, as the under currents might increase during the monsoon season. Zavi wanted to swim and was enjoying the fabulous beauty of nature. However, we did not go ready for taking a dip and so decided against going into the water and continued onwards.
This was a wonderful trip with the family, especially when we take our better half to the place where we have spent a lot of our good old bachelor span of our life. We rolled back to our stressful and chaotic life, with unforgettable sweet & calm memories. Waiting for our next family trip with our little Zavi.
