My 1st Trekking
DATE: December 25, 2011
ROUTE: Ramapuram, Chennai – Porur – Poonamalle – Thiruvallur – Utthukottai – Nagalapuram – Aaree and Back
PLACE: Nagalapuram Hills, Andhra Pradesh, India
Anbu Mani and I were discussed two days before about Nagalapuram trekking. If we free at weekend we will go to Nagalapuram, i.e., ours plan.
On December 24, Saturday night we both confirmed the Nagalapuram trekking plan.
On December 25, Sunday, I woke-up at 3:30 am and ready for trekking and rode to Anbu’s Home at Ramapuram and from there, then we have traveled to Nagalapuram by his Bike [up and down - 180 km].
Morning Weather was very chill and cool, we were had frozen.
Anbu was going this place second time, it’s first trekking to me, no idea (about route or area). So, I have followed Anbu.
We reached Uttukottai around 7 am and had breakfast and waited for Chennai Trekking Club Members, but if they went to other place or taken other route. So we continued our traveling.
We reached Aaree and we walked from Aaree village to Hills 3~3.5 km.
At entrance, there is a lake, filled with water (winter season that’s why lake otherwise only half or quarter of its capacity were filled, nice view), then we walked toward forest. It was very beautifully and very peacefully…
Anbu told me about his previous trekking experience and singing (shouting J) song, make a noise!!!!!!…
Around 1:30 pm, we reached (searching waterfall but failed to find) at some point, we lost hope finding waterfall, also hungry and little bit tired, so we both had discussion and decided to return…
We ate fruits, Biscuits, Bread, dates, and etc.
While come back, we both taken bath at stream, water was so chill and refreshing one. The moment I fell on water, I feel strange thing in my body, all my tiredness, leg pain, hungry were filed away. What a pleasant moment!!!
We enjoyed all moments during the trekking…
With full of happy and freshness in body and mind, we came back to Chennai…
