We initiated our journey after some breakfast & once the overtness was okay to proceed. The onset point was away from our hideout, so had to on-board a minibus. The overall stretch to summit is 8 km and it is considered to be a moderate trek. The peak is not visible from the commencement point as there are several hills are in midst of it. For first four Km, the inclination is moderate & it is not that steep. However after this it commences to become steep, en-route there is additionally a steep pass-through of a forest kenned as Shola, which designates tropical montane forest dissevered by grassland & hills.

This was the most astounding part withal. From this point, inclination is steep, lose soil was making the ascent arduous. Fortuitously there were no leeches to avenge us, as we breached there territory. However one has to keep this threat in mind & be cautious if you encounter one of them . While crossing this passage, somehow thought of Frodo Baggins stuck  (A protagonist from movie Lord of the rings) in that forest, I don’t ken why.
