Chennai is known as a place which doesnt provide much to travellers in the name of trekking. But there is one place which provides good opportunity to trek for those near chennai.
We decided to go to Goodiyam Caves for this weekend. Since we had known that if we give enough time for our friends to decide they will sothappify , we called up everyone on friday night and told them that we are going the next day morning. Thats it. We started from Vadapalani and took the Avadi Road to Thiruvallore.
We reached Thiruvallore and had our breakfast. We proceeded from there to Poondi Reservoir.After spending some time and taking some photos in the reservoir we crossed the reservoir and proceeded to our destination.
Stop at Poondi
We went to the goodiyam village and started our last end of the journey which was a troublesome 4km on pebbles.
We travelled at snails pace and reached a place where we decided that we cannot travel anymore on bikes. We parked our bikes there and started on foot. A long 2 Km walk on pebbles and rocks took us to the entrance of the caves.
Walking thru the forest
We were helped by the directions painted on the stones lying down.
The Caves covered in greens
The Caves are very wide and very big.
Entrance To the Caves
There were lot of statues in the caves. This place is known to be a treasure trove for archaeologists , but since we were just engineers we did not understand anything.
After spending some time in the caves and exploring it we decided to leave as everyone badly needed water.
We took our vehicles and the return trip was very fast when compared to the ascent. We reached the Goodiyam village in no time and drank a lot of water.
After stopping at Poondi again to take the customary Photos we were back to thiruvallur and had our lunch.
Then it was return to chennai.
