We were excited about just one part on Day 1, the mighty-70 hairpin curves! Starting early gave us plenty of time to relax and take enough breaks. In fact this was one of the shortest trips that we have ever done with a range of about 600 kms (2 days). 

 

Since most of the members joined were already part of the club, coordinating was not a tough job. We had breakfast near Salem and the lunch was arranged at the Home stay. We reached the destination by 1 pm and the hairpin curve  ride was really enjoyable. Please be advised, these are not that safe, we spotted many reckless drivers here on truck and buses.  

 

We headed to a viewpoint nearby and it was worth the visit. The view from the watch tower was breathtaking. We settled for the day with a nice dinner arranged at the home stay. Everyone enjoyed their time together with lot of laughs and jokes :-)
