DAY 2: Coimbatore direction.

Next day cab came on time, we started to first destination

Anamudi peak

It is the highest peak in Western Ghats  and in South India having an elevation of 2,695 metres . I was so thrilled. Anamudi means "Elephants Forehead". The Place looks like Elephant's forehead, so the name. You can even hike up Anamudi and enjoy breathtaking views. But driver drove to the peak,  It is amazing view from top. We took some pic and headed to next place..

Rajamalai National park

Driver told the park remains closed for 45-60 days from February 1st onwards during the calving season. So we had to skip this... Driver also told  a flower  "Neel Kurinji" , which blooms once in 12years can be found here, last  bloom was in 2006, so next it will be in 2018..It was 2;00pm by then, we had lunch and asked what is next destination, he told  its spending time in tea plantation.. 

Fun time in Tea estate

Neel Kurinji

We had enough of  tea estates from ooty and madikeri and  now munnar, we decided to go back tonite, against our original plans of 3days in munnar....Driver took us back to hotel, we packed and checked out hotel.. Hotel  boys said, we cant get tickets back to bangalore, as it was sunday nite (very hard to get tickets on week-ends). Driver then suggested, we can go to Coimbatore and take any buses to bangalore... We asked driver to drop to coimbatore, but he refused saying he doesnt have permit to travel other state. We then asked him to drop us to bus stand where we can get bus to coimbatore. Took a private bus to coimbatore. And from coimbatore took a  Private AC bus to bangalore.. Reached bangalore by 7;00am. Ramesh decided to go office on monday and take off on tuesday for Anniversary. We just spent day at home, and evening went to a restaurant for dinner..
