One of the lesser known treks in the Tamil Nadu circuit. We head towards the base where we freshen up and start the trek. First day hike is easy down hill climb from Vattakanal to vellagavi.

After trekking for 6kms, we reach Vellagavi, a 50 house village with no road connectivity. They have to visit Vattakanal for selling the fruits and spices which are in abundance. Oranges, Butter Fruit, Papaya, Banana, Guava, Passion Fruit, Jack Fruit are some of the many varieties of fruits available here, which make it a mouthwatering experience. We visit the near by view points after having the lunch & reach back to the campsite for overnight stay. 

Day 2 welcomes us with an unforgiving winding path which is continuously steep and equally spooky with the mist. After a tiring 3 hour hike, the warmth of lemon tea in the cold weather of Vattakanal concludes a satisfactory trek. The trek ends at Dolphin Nose in Vattakanal.

This trek route is temporarily changed to Vattakanal >> Vellagavi >> Vattakanal.
