First time at Meesapulimala and the toughest hike I ever had.
The peak is so tall, and the climb is way too steep may be slanting at 70 or 80 degrees. The view is amazing througout the trail and you will feel a sense of acomplishment after reaching top because the hike is that tough.
It was very cold in the begining of the hiking trail which soon started to change to very hot and humid. There are not much shade to the top that makes the climb very difficult. If you are planning to hike to the place, carry ample water and energy bars. It will be very useful.
And also, the only way to enter it is by purchasing the package offered by the Kerala State Forest Department. If you enter by any other means, it can result in large fines and jail time.
