Can't stop writing a short poem of my dream place Nagala....

After seeing many videos and photos of the famous spot Nagalapuram "swimmers paradise", I was waiting for a chance to ,see it and experience it....

Finally I got a chance to visit my dream place, yeah guys my name was shortlisted for the Swimmer's paradise, on the day I was ready with backpacked with lot of ready to eat food, clothes, jackets, etc. my brother dropped me near pickup point.


24 people, few known and many unknown boarded TT's. We had an quick introduction, on the way we had a small tea break, again got in to the TT, packed myself to escape from cool breeze and finally ready for the nap, many we're already in sleep mode...


Now journey to the wonderland started...


Morning 5AM we reached nearby village, got freshened up, had hot hot idli, masala vada, coffee tummy was full.. lemon rice packets were ready for the lunch.


Again got in to the TT's to reach the Nagalapuram base...


With life jackets, packed food and packed bags, started out trek towards the majestic hill with view of half sunk temple, natural water falls, stiff standing stones, small water flow, lots and lots of trees... I was walking inside my wonder land with many vow'ssss



Awesome awesome!!!!!


We started our trek at 9:30AM and reached the First pool by 11:00AM.


omg!omg! Can't wait to jump in to the water, we all wore the life jacket.. Uhuhuhu freezing cold water, Fresh and clear water. Dubuk dubuk dubuk.... everyone started jumping in to the water... I went and stood and with no time jumped, vow it was just awesome, can't explain in words, experiencing will be the best....


Now I got tempted to jump from 25 feet hill, all climbed up and started jumping, was standing and thinking whether to jump or not.


Omg breathtaking, seriously scary, stood twice on the tip and gave up, last chance with all our awesome people's encouragement,,,, at last... yeah I jumped, I did it......done with my long long jump.


Now with normal small jumps and was learning to swim...now time to leave the place and we were all damn hungry. Came out of the water and I started eating first but was the last to finish.


Done with the lunch and started climbing the hill. We reached peak and started relaxing, I had a small nap... remaining people went to the magic pool which was on the hill and started playing..


Arun, our organizer and our innocent chef who had lot of patience to prepare tea without sugar. After tea, knorr tomato soup was ready, All our hungry babies queued up to take soup, was very happy to serve..


It was 5:30PM, cooking started for dinner, vegetables were cut by Jewesh, Sai and Amar, thanks guys, all masalas were kept ready, the menu was vegetable biryani, I was the cook, assisted by Arun and Srikanth. Spicy veg biryani was ready but it was more spicy, many were in search of chocolates and sweets.. Sorry Guys!!


Dinner was done, we all started playing ping pong, had lot of fun with cute punishment to dance and yup the day didn't end with fire camp and barbecue thanks to Pavan. We warmed up ourselves and places were allotted for everyone to take a deep nap. Under the sky and above the hill bed with chill weather, flowing water, best of best nature sleep a human can get.

Next day morning all woke up and got freshened up, by the time Pavan started preparing bread and jam for us. we prepared white rice and it was mixed with ready made puliogare mix and was packed in all boxes for lunch.


All our bags were packed, it was time to descend the hill. How can we miss the group pic, say cheers


Our walk was towards the dead end pool, never ever say that amazing trials, with huge rocks, pebbles and walk in the river, and we all reached the pool, the view of the pool in between the huge hill rocks, middle of the forest, freezing cold water, all our guys again started jumps, I was scared to go inside the pool, Suresh, a great swimmer had patience to take me till the end of the pool, had an awesome massage in the small water fall, all guys started playing throw ball, time flew very fast, all started coming back and our trek guide was already been to a stay under hill and was boiling hot water for our ready to eat noodles . Our one more chef Pavan started cooking noodles for everyone and we already started eating the packed puliogare. We also fed the fishes with our tasty food which they wouldn't have tasted before.


Our tummy was full, again started our trek to reach the base, we reached the base by 3PM and had a quick feedback session, all we could see was a happy faces.


We quickly boarded our TT's and started our journey to Bangalore, we played many games like guess the personality etc. We stopped for the dinner break on the way, Andhra full plate meals, couldn't eat much but it was tasty, tummy was full, fully tired had a nap as I had office on the next day.


Reached Bangalore in time & bid adieu to each other, started towards their destinations carrying all the memories.


Thanks to all the organizers for a wonderful and memorable trek...
