Trip to Illithodu

Illithodu.... wow! what a cool place!!! Like to go there again and again...

Last Tuesday, the boys gang of our class went to Illithodu, a place near Malayatoor in Ernakulam Dist, Kerala. The main attraction there is river Periyar flowing through the forest. We have to walk a bit through the forest to reach the river.


I couldn't see much people coming there. It may be because it is a dangerous place. Some people died there some time ago and last week, there was a cyclone. But these didn't stop us from going there. I had some hesitation to go there. But after the trip, I realized that it would have been a great loss if I didn't go there. Furthermore, this was the last tour in my BTech life :-(

The trip was all fun. From the beginning to the end. We first went to Malayatoor "thazhathe palli" and prayed to make our journey safe and entertaining. Then wen went to Illithodu and stopped near a Toddy shop. Please don't call us drunkards. It was just to eat "kappa & erachi" and to drink some kind of water we get from there. Pavam piller... alle? Here are some of the gang:


Then we went to the forest. If you have to see the beauty of plants and trees, you have to go to a forest. I can't express it in words...

The river was splitting to many branches. In some places, the water was almost still and in some other places, it was a little fast and in most of the parts, it was flowing very very fast. I took some photos using my friend's camera. Here are some random shots:
