Just as we started the climb we saw 2 herds of wild elephants. Lots of check post on the way and in a few had a pay extra. The place was very clean with trash bins at regular intervals. Enjoyed the changing landscape of tea gardens, sandalwood trees, waterfalls.

We reached Munnar by car from Udumalaipet in between 6.00 P.m to 9.00 p.m. It was really very thrilling. The route was fully surrounded by deep forests and mists. Mist surrounded our car completely and I was not able to drive. I could just see 3 feet distance from the car. It was scary.
