from here we crossed a small stream and a little climb took us to Donigal Station. then started trekking on the railroad
some of our folks were stuck inside the tunnel when the train came unexpectedly :-(
after an hour's driver from Saklespur, you reach this place: trucks loaded with logs and tea shops. Donigal station is a little way down from here, where Sakleshpur Railway trek trail starts.
Railway folks on inspection perhaps.
we crossed many many bridges. some very long

There are more than 50 tunnels if you go all the way to Subramanya road station. We passed through 20. the longest: 572M. Most of the tunnels were pitch dark inside, at some point you couldn't see light at either of the ends
do not stop so long in the middle of a bridge. like those guys in the picture. a train might come, you never know
besides tunnels, bridges, there are several passes cut through rocks
this is the longest bridge we crossed. there's stream below, very fast flowing in rainy season from the pictures I saw and trek logs I read
very fast flowing in rainy season from the pictures I saw and trek logs I read. we went down for a refreshing dip
this is a great picture because all I did was turn off the flash. the kodak C713 camera I used had nothing but auto mode.
This reminds me of Cowboy movies. In the picture is VN, perhaps the oldest of the lot
we camped here for the night. it rained and some weren't so lucky :-(
unfortunately not for us
