After viewing the magnificent falls from downstream we trekked back to upstream of the falls and the panoramic views that greeted there were breathtaking & awesome. Kerala is truly described as "God's Own Country". I stood there for long breathing in the fresh air and enjoying the lush greenery while my camera went berserk ! The treks had really tired us and we quenched our thirst with generous quantities of refrigerated herbal drinks & fruit juices-avoiding and evading the monkeys all the time. Actually the climate was not all that conducive and cool as one might expect after seeing the greenery here. It was quite humid & sweaty which is standard in Kerala during pre monsoon !
