30 members successfully completed mission VU/1 exploring a beautiful, new trail and stream spanning the entire width East to West of the Venkateswara National Reserved Forest. We entered the mountains Saturday early morning and returned Monday late night. We discovered amazing waterfalls, ancient jeep trails, old British rest houses, watch towers, mind boggling gorges and awing rock formations. We had one of the most amazing groups I have trekked with in recent times – great attitude and stamina. CTC keeps rocking !!!
Night swim at Second day camp site
Never in my wildest imagination thought I would be swimming and jumping inside a deadly pool at mid night covered by scenic mountains, clear sky, chill weather, bright white moon and above all with enthusiastic die-hard nature admirers. The camp fire, soup, tea and pop corn after the swim was heavenly. Loved every bit of that night and will cherish it for a life time.
Gigantic water falls
Mammoth is not the word to describe those huge waterfalls dropping as if directly from the sky. The trek towards the waterfalls was indeed rewarded with the splendid beauty which nature had to offer to the sweating souls. Admired the breath taking gigantic waterfalls like how I admired when I was a kid first time looking at an elephant. Completely mind blowing views.
Crossing the wild streams
Passing through the wild streams all along the trek was very adventurous and our team effort of forming human chain helped us to march ahead, it was real fun and at the same thrilling. Every time when we crossed a wild stream it was exiting and heart throbbing.
Singing, dancing, playing and of course trekking, it was tremendous fun and great excitement which I will remember and cherish throughout my life.
SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR PETER FOR ORGANIZING SUCH A SUPERB EVENT AND AM LOOKING FORWARD FOR THE NEXT DOA FROM YOU.
With loads of love and regards,
