Kottathalachi Mala (Mount Kottathalachi)
Another day, another hike. This time to one of the long route with 6.5 kilometres of walk through steep hills and trails covered by tall grasses. The view was breathtaking as usual, the hike was satisfying and the cool breeze on top of the mountain was such a pleasant experience to have. Anyone heading out here, bring enough snacks, water is occasionally available at some points of the hike from fresh underground sources. There are multiple ways to reach here but once you are in the general area, ask locals for directions. The earlier you ask the better, as you climb up and up you will find out that a lot of people have abandoned their homes and moved somewhere else. Also, if your vehicle has offroading capabilities, either bike or four wheeler, you can oretry much cover 80% of the trail with thst.
