An exciting and an adventurous trip, great memories, a green jungle with lots of animals — Yes, I am talking about my trip to Wayanad with my cousins. On the first day we stayed in a hotel at Kalpatta. We went to see the Karapuzha Dam which was under construction. On the second day we went to the Banasura Sagar Dam Project and to the Pookkode Lake, where we went boating. We ended the day by visiting the Sujimukki Waterfalls where we had a wonderful trekking experience. I had an enjoyable time playing cards with my cousins that night.

The next day we visited the Thirrunelli Temple. We went and bathed in ‘Papanashini' where it is believed that our sins would be washed away and we will be blessed by God. The most memorable experience of our trip was passing through a reserved forest area. On the way we saw an elephant in the middle of the road, glaring at us. Luckily the driver drove past him and we escaped. Finally we returned home from a wonderful trip to Wayanad.
