We started the 2-hour journey a short while after the sun started shining. The winding roads and beautiful scenery along the way made the travel quite enjoyable. As soon as we reached, we hopped aboard the ‘kuttavanchi’ (coracle boat) to take a spin around the Thenmala dam reservoir.

This was followed by a bus ride through forested areas deeper into the Shendurney reservoir. The ride led us to a beautiful landscape with the highlight being spotting a herd of elephants on the opposite side of the reservoir.

Lunch was from a nearby restaurant. Sitting under a shade and replenishing ourselves with a whole lot of water gave a huge relief from the blazing sun.

Next we moved on to the adventure park filled with rides and adventures for all levels of adventure seekers. The adventure junkies in the group went on a rampage, walking and hanging upside down on tight ropes while the leisure lovers went for a spin on the paddle boats on the pond within the park. The weekend ended with a splash, quite literally, as we went for a bath in the river nearby for a sunset dip.

It’s safe to say, we had the perfect weekend trip!
