   We spent the day exploring Valparai, there was a plan B to do Athirapally ride but we had to drop this since the previous day was a long one. We visited Number parai, Thalnar etc., Please be informed that you will need special permissions to enter Thalnar and exit before dark. 


   We also spotted Cheetah, Sambar and there were rumors that elephants were out on the road. Pleas avoid travelling after dark or solo. One of our bikes had battery issues and it just won't start, we had to leave the bike behind and come back for it with a working battery. Some goons had already stolen mobile chargers and fog lamps from the bike by the time we reached the site. Thank god we could still see the bike standing after all :-P
