Tip: Though rainy season pays attention to a heck lot of leech production out there but where is the fun if there’s nothing to keep us bothered, eh. Also we were told that the leeches take out our good for nothing blood from us without any pain too. Anyway I’ve to confess that we all had a great time more than the leeches or the entire wildlife nature there could have had all by themselves. Well so will you if you wish to pay a visit someday.
The Gates are now open to the Silent Valley National Park. So what are you waiting for, just enter to explore.
It rained really hard just after we got out of Silent Valley. The hot tea and snacks were waiting outside for us before we got into the Ordinary (Bus service from KSRTC). We all then bid adieu to one another and headed for our different destinations until the next expedition with even more thrills and spills to accompany.
So that’s how the SILENT VALLEY Expedition was carried on. Even more places and new faces, unexpected incidents, amazing sights, exquisite cuisine, adventurous rides and lots of interesting episodes to showcase awaits.
