My trip to visit the avalanche wasn't completely fruitful. Well, it means i got a glimpse of the avalanche when traveling to reach the main destination.
The moment I was heading more towards the depth of the jungle I realized that there must be quite a few people around the main area - near the water. When we reached the point there were at least about 200 people to board a van for the trip inside the avalanche reserve area.
There's a big Van that could accommodate about 25-30 people in one trip and a Jeep that you can hire for 1200 ( max PAX 8).
Unfortunately it was a Saturday the place was over crowded. The ticket selling is different, you must give your name ( n the number of tickets needed) as soon as you reach there and wait for them to call your name. Once the Van returns - people at the ticket counter start shouting your name and then you can pay and then collect your tickets. It was chaotic. We had to wait from 12:00 till 2:30 to get on to the next trip not only for the van but also the jeep( every trip has a gap of 2:30 hrs) .
Ride through the forest to reach the place was also good and did get some glimpse of the lake below.
It is beautiful.
They also have a beautiful forest guest house - taken care by the Tamil-Nadu forest dept.
If you wish to visit there please call the forest dept , if possible give your name confirm the timings of the tour and then visit.
Its all worth it, even if you don't spot any animals.
