Day-6 Valpara to Palakkad via Pollachi

Last Updated on

The stay at valpara was good. We got up early in the morning and gone for a walk. While we were walking and exploring the area, the sun began to rise and the beauty of the tea estate began to show, the rising sun rays passing through the trees and clearing the mist. This view makes an everlasting beautiful impression in our minds.

We reached pollachi at 6 pm and we were running late as my motorcycle was having some engine trouble as its oil began to burn and this was a sign of piston rings damage, so I had to maintain my riding rpm below 5000, or else the engine issue may get worst.

We stopped at pollachi for having food. From pollachi it’s about 60kms to reach palakkad.

The ride was wonderful and the experience we got from this trip was also great.

Kerala Re-entry

We reached palakkad at 9:00 pm and managed to find a lodge near the KSRTC bus stand. After fresh up we went outside to have food.
