Event Description

Conquering Kalhatty 20-Jan-18

Get, Set and Paddle! To conquer the scenic Kalhatty.

Get ready to set a new limit as you paddle to Ooty on the challenging 36 hair pin curved cycling trek on this 2-day long trail route.

Warning!! This is a Level 4 Cycling trek…Not meant for the weak hearted.

Paddle around the splendid view of Kalhatty waterfall with water cascading down from a height of around 40 meters. With the picturesque surrounding of dense forests, the place boasts of wide variety of flora and fauna.

Day 1:

Day 1 starts with breakfast at Bandipur Plaza before we set off with the epic trail towards Kalhatty at 08:00 AM from MASINAGUD. The roads are good, surrounding packed with trees and the altitude really isn’t as steep which helps to warm yourselves to gear up for the real challenge that lies ahead. From here we head towards Masinagudi and towards Kalhatty, we take our First break after 15 kms of trek. Depending on the time taken to cover the distance, lunch will be either at Kalhatty base or the hilltop.

Make sure you’ve gathered enough steam by now, because what confronts you next is the toughest challenge of this trail and is nothing short of absolute exhilaration, only if you can make it to the top that is. The altitude elevation is over 4000 feet in under 11 kms with 36 hairpin bends, beat all this and you are sure not to contain your elation despite the need to gasp for a few long breaths. The entire journey upwards and the viewpoint presented at each of the mountain edges are breath taking and worth it all.

Once you reach the top, it’s mostly flat roads up till the hotel. We end the day by 02:30 PM to settle in and have enough to talk about the feat unfettered. We camp for the night at KSTDC Mayura hotel.

While the first half of day 1 is predominantly flat altitude, the latter half of the day entails you to scale heights starting from 3000+ feet to 7300+ feet and lest you fail to remember the 36 hairpin bends on your way, making it a real ordeal.

Day 2:

We start Day 2 after breakfast at KSTDC at 07:30 AM, we take our first break after 10 kms at the Dodda Betta base, from there we ascend uphill to the viewpoint where you get a 360* view of Ooty through a telescope and after enjoying a short break there we head towards Coonoor for about 25 kms which is all downhill, requiring caution since the descent is really steep.

Event End: Your cycling trail ends at the Coonoor Railway Station, from where you’ll board the renowned Ooty Toy Train, what’s a trip to Ooty without the train ride. We reach KSTDC by 01:00 PM for lunch and post lunch at 02:00 PM we start our journey back to Bangalore in our transit vehicle and reach Sadashivnagar Swimming Pool by 08:00 PM.

Day 2 poses lesser challenge compared to the day earlier, except for an ascent of 1100 foot, rest of the trail is mostly downhill and relatively shorter and quicker compared to the day prior. Roads are predominantly good (fully tarmac) though steep so it’s relatively a relaxing day for you to glide through the breeze and enjoy the scenery.
