Ride Single it will be an experience that will last for your lifetime
I had dreamed for it a long time, Actually it was one from the bucket list that I have.
Tirunelveli is also a nice place to visit. Since I reached there one day prior to the function I thought to visit some places. First destination was papanasam dam which had Amazing view from the road but the water was too low, So I didn’t go for a closer look. The next stop was Manimuthar Dam which had an amazing garden. The next stop was Manjolai waterfalls, there was one was a check post where I had to pay entry fees and had to let them check my bag. The way to to Manjolai was an off-road ride to a hilltop which was amazing. I reached there by 2 pm, the water was too good so I decided to take a nap. I even got a foot massage from the fishes there in the water. Manjolai had an amazing collection of fishes. There are like too many varieties to count. So I spent enough time there to keep me ready for the next ride.
The next destination was Agasthyar falls which was the best among all the places that I visited on this day. Since I already had taken a nap at Manjolai. I decided to take a walk around and see all around the falls. They had built pathway around the whole falls. The water falls had a enough area to accommodate a count of more than 300+ people.
The next day I went for my cousins convocation which was quite fun to watch my cousin on her big date. It was quite sad for her to say goodbye to all her friends. Congrats cous for being the first MBBS graduate in the family.
Then I bid adios to my cousin and headed to Chikmagalur. I know it was a very long journey had to take too many stops for water, food and resting but it was fun all the way till Chikmagalur. Let me explain, first interesting thing happened at the 300Km mark , My bike started with a missing like out of petrol I thought it was due to the heating which in turn was due to the speed at which I had to go since it was a long way from Tirunelveli to Chikmagalur. I waited like 10 mins before starting my bike again. Then I started my bike and rode like 5 mins my bike again started missing and stopped, this happened like for the next 10-15 times. It took me like one hour to reach nearby shop where I was able to understand that there is no workshop nearby and will have to travel 15kms to reach the next workshop. Dont think that was all the trouble I had. Since I had to check for the route to next workshop I checked my phone and saw that my battery charge is closing 15%. The interesting thing was that it was on charging the whole way. Since I already had installed charger plus holder in my bike. So I came to an understanding that my mobile is also failed on me. I started the journey at 2 PM now its 6.30 PM and I almost reached Karnataka. Now I’m in the national highways where all the vehicles are roaming at 90-120 km/hr. Then I prayed to god and somehow managed to reach a better hotel by another 1.50 hours where I was able to charge my phone and have some food for myself. I then tried to check my bike, just to check for any normal problem that I can solve on my own. My bike had missing earlier due to an issue in the one of the valves and spark plug. But this was not that I then decided to remove the charger connection sincce it is not longer working and here comes the magic that was the issue. That circuit was short circuiting my bikes battery and was causing the missing. And that was it I found the at like 8 PM now I have wasted like 2:30 hours :(.
I then started my journey and kept on going till 11 and my eyes started fading and then I had to take a nap taking a hotel is not good as it will take time and I dont have that So decided to stop at the Bus stop which I found to be empty and slept there for 20 minutes and then again started journey. This kept on going till morning 6.30 PM on the way I had to sleep at another petrol pump(on top of my bike :D).
The first thing I did when I reached Chikmagalor was finding a place to take a short nap before starting exploring. I found one and told them to wake me up at 10. Obviously they forgot and I woke up at 11:30 and had a quickly did morning chores and left hotel by 11:45 and went straight to Mullayanagiri. It was the highest peak in Chikmagalor with a height close to 2000 meters. And yes I took by bike up to the point where there was road. It was fun there were some off-road and for some time I had to ride through an area where it like sandstorm could not see anything. The view from top of mountain was quite spectacular. I went near to the temple which was the highest peak to get a much better view. I spend some time there and started to nearest waterfalls.
Visited Ambanad Hills and participated in cousin’s engagement procession
It was an awesome day. I got the opportunity to participate in engagement procession for my dear cousin Ashlin. We had KTM, R15 and couple of Royal Enfield’s.
I even tried KTM, it’s a nice bike but too much power can be a trouble at wrong hands.
Then we went for a ride to Ambanad Hills. The tea estate roads were too good for the ride and I got chance to get to know a couple of my family friends. Visited Ambanad Hills and participated in cousin’s engagement procession
We made a lot of noise from the brides house up until we reached the church. We all enjoyed all the way. Happy married life dear.
My cousin made our family proud by completing her MBBS from Tirunelveli Medical College.
The function was on Sept 7th So planned to reach 1 day earlier to explore Tirunelveli. I had booked an apartment from Booking.com.I reached there by 12:00 AM, the dormitory was actually pretty good. It even had A/c and I was lucky since there was no one else. I started my morning at 8.00 AM and decided to get ready and I got ready for the day by 30 mins and went straight to the Aaryas hotel and then I started planning the day. My earlier plan was to Visit Maghamala but later on, decided to Visit Manjolai and PapanasamDam as per suggestions from my cousin since it was like 250 km away which would take the entire day.
The next day I had to pack my bag so that I can be ready for next journey to Chikmagalur then I headed to medical college to support my cousin on her big day. It was quite wonderful to see her in her white gown. She was enjoying every moment like others since it was her last day at her college. Even I had that day were I had to bid goodbye to my friends who had been with me for 4 years who I rea miss now. It was a proudful moment for my cousins family to see their daughter getting MBBS degree. We had an awesome day. Congrats cousin wish you good luck in advance for your future endeavors.
