A Ride To Mallalli Falls


The wind through your hair, the rustle of trees and the endless roads are the things which can only be experienced.
The sleepless nights before the journey, servicing your vehicle, charging your camera, finding country roads hoping you would get lost in the wilderness.
Me and my pal started the journey at around 5 am in the morning and what stood ahead of us was 150 km of sheer excitement.
Most of them ride on a bullet for a road trip , but all we had was Suzuki Access 125 … Oh yeah it’s a moped, it’s been with us in all the three road trips comprised 1500 km.
We started riding through narrow yet beautiful roads.My friend on the other hand was busy clicking pictures.Finally there I was , lost completely in the beauty that my state(Karnataka) offered me.
We rode for 4 to 5 hours to reach our destination ,the spectacular Mallalli falls in Somwarpet.After reaching there, we found out we had to walk for 6 km and trek another kilometer.It was just numbers for me as I was eagerly waiting to see what I came to see.
We brought some salt in the local shop as it’s a leech repellant.The localities warned us to be careful as last night two boys from bengaluru were swept away for half a mile down the falls.
As we started walking through the lands painted green , we heard streams gushing, birds chirping and that’s when my friend started to worry that we have not yet seen a single person and the road just never seemed to end.
At last we saw a government billboard and a small tea shop.We had a quick stop and we were again warned by the shopkeeper.We started to climb down towards the falls and we could barely see anything , everything was covered with fog.We cursed our luck and sat there hoping that the fog would clear , thanks to the wind that it finally cleared the fog and let us through the hidden heavens , WE HAD REACHED OUR DESTINATION
We sat there for almost an hour just looking at the spectacle that nature offered us.Here are some pictures we took (click on the slide show below)! ,  you might want to be there the next rainy season also check out the Map.
If I were you , I wouldn’t have missed a single chance to be there.

Ever Farewell! Happy wandering 
