Kodai celebration (Theakkadi)

Natural views form Theni to Kambam route

Our travel towards Theakkadi was awesome. Two side of sky touching mountains with clouds spreading on it (they are west continue hills) and green fields was really cool for my eyes. I was telling to my dad, if we live, we should live here (in the surrounding of Theni or Kambam (Theni is a district in Tamil Nadu). I don’t know how to explain what I feel, it was a dream come true to travel on these place, where I saw in movies and craved.

Theakkadi Lake

I have crossed the bored and went to Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, but first time I went inside the Kerala, I was sad when we were coming down form the hill, but when they said the Theakkadi was in the top of hill, the happiness come again. The Theakkadi was a big lake, which leads to Peariyar Dam. It was 4.00pm when we reach Theakkdi, the climate was very cool, we are the last passengers to buy ticket, if we come 5 minutes late we have missed the boat. It was a doubly deck boat, I went near the water in the wheel chare and shifted to chare. My uncle, brother and our car driver carry me inside the Boat. The boat ride was continued for an hour, the boat went slowly, so ever one can watch the animal on the shore.
I expect to see Elephants and tigers, but saw only dears, one Forest Bull, and a crocodile lying on the shore. The travel on the Boat was unforgettable; the broken tress in the middle of water, the boat, and the lake, which was surrounded by beautiful mountains, chili drizzle ect…. We expect that the boat will go near the Dam, but they have turned. We were searching for animal in the Binocular, suddenly every one was shouting elephant elephant, when we go near only realized they are forest officer wearing black raincoat, it was a big joke. After finishing the boat ride and arrived Kumli (town near Thekkadi) the heavy rain started, my mom went to buy pepper in the near shops, the pepper will be very pure in this place and we had a tasty coffee there in the rain, drinking some think hot in the rain is Wow!
Kumbakkarai Water Falls in Peariyakum

After we come down form the hill, we met our relative who was a break inspected in the boarder of the Kerala, he booked a room for us in Kambam (one of the boarder town in Tamil nadu) and we stayed there. Next day we come to know after we come down form the hills there was heavy wind and trees broke down and blocked the traffic, good time we retuned soon, or else we have been caught in the middle of the forest. On Tuesday 30 on our way to chennai, we went to Kumbakkarai Water Falls in Peariyakum, the water come to this falls is form Kodaikanal, the water has medical conduct, my cousins enjoyed taking bath in the falls. This was the last place we visit and our vehicle headed to Chennai while returning our driver drew the car very fast and arrived our home at 9.30pm.
