Hai guys
This trip was done by me in 2010 december.In maruti 800.
I went to manjolai which is at the tirunelveli district.
But it was an unexpected trip to manjolai.I have never came across manjolai anywhere before i go there.but i had an urge for visiting kalakad and mundathurai wildlife santuary. This time we went to tiruchendur.
Then next day went to manjolai.i hope many of our people in south know about manimuthar falla which is at the foot hills.
BTW after my visit to manjolai i started researching about the place but i cant find any logs on this place.
Till today i got only a 2 or 3 logs when i searched on all automotive websites so i wanted to share the experience.

Pics will be following.

DAY 2
Woke up late in the morning as we went to tirunelveli late night.
went to some freinds house in tirunelveli took breakfast.
they told about manjolai.
so went to manimuthar falls.
but for a group of people to go to manjolai one has to get permission from forest depatrment.We didnt get the permission.so followed a new friend came as a group with family members in bolero they took as inside with the permission.
The manjolai roads are worst and anyhow taking SUV will be the better option.
but our 800 did a faithful job without any problem but apart from a limit our car cant go as they are not suitable for 800 even innova or any other sedan so returned.
But its a wonderful place.
hope you all enjoy the photos.

i loved this place very much.Always this is the first lovely place for me.
its reached from palayankotai.On the way to papanasam.
i think i forgot some incidents:sorry:
There is a EB guest house in the top of manjolai.For the stay there you have to get a permission.
In the guest house there is a glass room from where one can spot tigers and deers in night time.
i missed the stay there[frustration]
BTW while changing dress and going to take a bath in manimuthar falls got a leech in my legs.
I think the thread is flop[roll]
