The Kurumbadi Vlog-Part 4

FacebookTwitterGoogleLinkedIn


We’ve so far talked about reaching the village of Kurumbadi and arriving on a Toy Train Trip. In Part 3 we talked about driving to Teanest, a place near Coonoor, early in the morning rain to start a 10 kilometre trek.

In this episode (4) we talk about the beautiful trek through Singara Estate from the higher reaches of Coonoor to Kurumbadi by the little waterfall which merges into the Bhavani River, overlooking the majestic Bakkasuran mountain. As we finish the trek, we also stop by at the Hillgrove railway station to understand how the system works here due to the lack of good coal required for locomotion up the hill.
