A Travelogue - A Trekking Experience @ Vayuvanthol

After 5 months, International Team has gone for a trip. Last time it was the chilling Kodaikanal, but this time it’s another extravaganza, a trekking experience at ‘Vayuvanthol’ situated almost 45 kms away from Technopark. It was a one day trip, but there was so much to enjoy. We have started from Technopark round 6 ‘o’ clock in the morning. The enthusiasm and excitement was going higher and higher when each people boarded in the bus from various pick-up points. Till we reaches in our destination around 8 o clock, the bus was trembled with music…Lot many new singers have come forwarded and entertained the team. We reached the destination and had our break fast. When we started the trekking from the base camp, Chathancode, it was 10 ‘o’ clock. When we started off the trekking, it was not that difficult as we have expected. But as the journey progressed, we have started feeling the heat. It was bit difficult to endure the journey…There were some steep cliff to climb on… Group by group we have started to move along… Each and every moment we have enjoyed. Taking snaps and cracking jokes, we kept on ascending to the elevated points. At last we have seen a beautiful water fall in front of us. All the tiredness has gone off once we saw the water-fall and a pool in front. But the water was extremely cold to jump in. But nothing could resist us from jumping into the pool and having a bath. But we have really shocked when our guide told us that we have reached only half the way. Within a few minutes, we have started heading towards the next target. That way ahead was something which was not so easy to climb on. We have experienced the team building in a practical situation. With help of another person, only we could move on. But the sceneries awaited us after that hard journey was really something to cheer about. There was a huge water-fall which is a dozen times bigger than the earlier one. It was also associated with a huge pool… The atmosphere was really chilling. Even the mist-like drops from the water-fall made us shiver once we approached the fall. The wet and slippery rocks and stones were fearsome in nature. We had a splendid photo-session over there. After that, we have started our journey back to the base camp. It was more difficult to descend than ascend those steep rocks. Slowly walking downwards we have reached the base-camp around 2:30. There had our lunch and after taking some rest, we have headed towards the lakeside. There we have planned our team building activities. After those exciting events, we had bamboo rafting and swimming. So many others were playing cricket, football and cards. When we finished all the activities, it was around 6 in the evening. We took bath in the lake and walked back to the base camp. There we had the snacks and took the team photos. After returning to the hotel, we had dinner from there. Later we were entertained by the musical performances from our team mates. Then in that late night, we have started our journey back to Technopark. Almost everyone was tired and was sleeping during the return journey. That was a clear indication towards the hardness of the trekking we have experienced on that. Around 10:30 in the night, we have reached at home. One very tough day of life, but very exciting and satisfactory one as well. No one could easily forget this day. This will always remain in their memories for ever. While returning home, my legs were paining, but mind was just getting excited by thinking about the trip and each and very moments of that… That day is unique… Full of Enjoyment… I wish each and every day is like this… but…
