02-NOV-2008, 04:50 AM Aah, finally we're above 1750m above sea level and completely exhausted.We rested for an hour and the wind was freezing cold and there were no clouds.So,we've waited for the sun to rise, but since it was sunday,Sun took his own time to show us his rays.The scene of rising sun was awesome and i am able to click some nice snaps02-NOV-2008, 07:30 AM While climbing down we're able to see the path that took us to the top.We got a complete picture of the terrain and we reached foot of the hill at 9:00am and relaxed for 1/2 hour,had some tender coconuts and return trip started @ 9:30am

02-NOV-2008, 11:30 AM Driven safely to the home and it was a nice trekking trip.This place will be very good only in winter seasons where you can see the entire cluster of clouds. It's good but a little bit risky trekking place.
