Waltz through Waynad

Sulthan Bathery – Meenmutty – Kalpetta – Soochipara
April 10,11 2010

This summer join CAM for an exclusive ride through the western ghats of God’s own country.

The whole ride is split up into three stages, this is to avoid the afternoon heat on Day-1.

Stage 1 – 45 km ride from Sulthan bathery to Meenmutty falls.

The route goes through the mudumalai forest check post with an array of trees on either side. The trail provides us with a sneak peek into Mudumalai forest range of Tamilnadu and ends at Meenmutty falls. The tasty lunch and the enticing waterfalls are just the thing to get the riders back in shape!

Stage 2 – The ride after the lunch on day 1 starts at 3.30 p.m. The 30 km route takes the riders through some exotic tea estates next to Chembra, the highest peak in Waynad, and Meppadi town. The stay for the day would be at Chandragiri hotel (one of the best) at Kalpetta.

Stage 3 – The ride on Day 2 starts at 6a.m, with the riders passing through the misty roads and reaching Vythri and Pookot lake. The trail then passes through the eastern side of Chembra peak, along serpentine roads and lush green tea plantations leading the riders to Suchipara falls, an ideal place to end the ride.

The cost of the ride is Rs 3200 (Bangalore to Bangalore). And don’t worry if you do not have a bike – we will arrange a rented bike and helmet for you at an additional cost of Rs.400 for the trip!
