Coorg, the place which is also known as Scotland of India, is a popular tourist location in South India. This hill-station has always been popular for its scenic beauty. She never disappoints the travellers who come to her. She embodies everything a nature lover crave for. From rivers, mountains, forests,streams, lakes, valleys, cliffs, one can find a full course meal to satisfy your appetite to explore the beauty of nature.
Though my goal was to do River-rafting in Cauvery river, as always when my travel plans are made, somehow I end up in places which are less crowded and less visited. Cauvery River-rafting is located near Kushalnagar, Coorg. Almost a kilometer before my destination, I came across this beautiful hanging bridge. It is not built as part of attracting tourists, but it is the only connectivity for the people living in the village across the river. It was a surprising fact for me to see that in real, though I have heard a lot about underdeveloped places having less connectivity with the external world.
Across the bridge awaited me a beautiful village, with mud roads and paddy farms on either side of the small walk way. The villagers around the area totally depends on this small road and the hanging bridge to go to the next nearest town, Kushalnagar.
Muddy pools formed by the rain
has a painful story to say
we were fresh,pure and clear
little droplets blue in color
diamonds were jealous of us
rainbow shades sparkling on us
we hit the ground wrapped in mud
our shade changed into deep brown
we lost all shine and shimmer
living life ignored by all…
P.S. My experience on river-rafting in Coorg will be shared in my next post 🙂
