Wanna be an eco-tourist? visiting fragile, pristine, and relatively undisturbed natural areas, seeking authentic local experiences and connect with fellow eco-conscious travellers?
Our trekking/camping team goes regularly on trekking/camping adventure trips on the last Saturdays of every month in a team of 20 to 25 members.
This month, [on the last Saturday - 30 July 2016] we have decided to go to Tada Falls / Ubbalamadugu Falls in Andhra Pradesh.
If you wanna join us, after assuring yourself that you are medically fit for the same, mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org rightaway!
However, this trek can't be done by children and the elderly. If you are above 23 years of age, and medically fit for a daunting yet exciting and fun-filled trek, decide now.
We also plan on camp fires and campfire cooking too!
Well, Tada Falls is located 92 km from Chennai, in Varadaiahpalem mandal of Chittoor district on the border of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.
Adding thrill to the excitement is the fact that, the falls are located in quite a dense forest called Siddulaiah Kona. Popular for its trekking, climbing and picnicking, the terrain that surrounds the falls includes rocky hill formations and lush forests interspersed with a number of streams.
As soon as you enter the forest you need to cross one small bridge. One can witness the crystal clear water throughout the journey. Initial trek for about 1.5 km is easy and there is a stream beside Shiva temple on the way to the falls. The path to the falls runs beside the stream. Visitors encounter the first tier of the falls which is a beautiful place amidst thick forest and rocky formations with a pool of water. The second tier of the falls is more beautiful amidst serene location, but it demands tough trek through steep boulders.
Last ATM point, snacks/ water purchasing shops are at Tada town. There are frequent buses and auto to Varadaiahpalem from Tada.
Note: This trek can't be done by little children and elder persons.
