Place : Nilgris Hills
People : Mega, Srini, Saravanan and many others
Date : 27th Mar - 2 May 2008
After years of gathering information to find interesting places to visit, for a change I wanted to let someone else do the hardwork and just join the party at the
last minute. Hence when I came to know of YHAI organising a 5 day trek in Nilgris, I thought it would be a good opportunity to try them.
I had restricted myself to mostly 1 day or 1 place affairs due to various reasons and was hesitant about this 5 day trek. Since this was my first time with YHAI,
I was believing till the last minute that my bag would be carried by a vehicle to the trekking shed each day. But they destroyed my hope and I was left carrying
my bag for the whole trek :-). It was tough in the beginning but later it got adjusted.
Plan of the trek :
Day 1: Reporting at base camp Parsans Valley at 2.30 P.M
Day 2: Parsans valley to Mukurthi Dam (10km)
Day 3: Mukurthi Dam to Pandiar Hills(12km)
Day 4: Pandiar Hills to Pykara falls(16km)
Day 5: Pykara falls to Mudumalai(12km)
Day 6: Disperse after break fast
This is the map of our trek.
First Day :
Me and Saravanan were the first to report for the trek and we did so exactly at 2.30 P.M as mentioned.

View from the Dam:
I came to know that Parsons Valley dam is the place where the climax of Roja was shot. So I give you photographic evidences for that :-)

Hence hereby its clearly understood and proved without doubt that the climax scene of Roja was shot in Parsons Valley dam. :-)
If the YHAI ever conducts a Quiz, they can include this as one of the questions. "Where was the climax scene of Roja shot ?".
The Photos from the other days would be posted soon..
