We had huge hopes of sighting the famed goat! But it proved elusive! Few of our fellow tourists gave up very easily and went back to the bus point. Others, like us, enjoyed the nature and decided to test our luck and waited. Soon, it was becoming more and more obvious that we will not get a glimpse of the VIP! So, rather reluctantly, we decided to go back to the boarding point.
Then, someone spotted few specks on a hill top far away, and cry enthusiastically “There it is!” And as we strained our eyes to focus on the spots it seemed moving; so we decided it – it certainly is a Tahr! We zoomed our camera to the maximum and the rather grainy image that was captured, certainly showed a Tahr!
So thus armed with something to show off, we came back, took the bus back to the entrance and drove off in our car in search of our lunch. Of course, we bought the tiny little fresh carrots from the vendor and enjoyed them. They were so sweet, crispy and wonderful to eat!
Soon we reached back at our rooms after lunch and it was already time to go back to home! The one and half days at Munnar seemed to have passed by in a flash! We didn’t have enough of it… Plans of coming back again here were already being formulated in the mind. With that reassuring thought of revisiting Munnar, we started on our return journey. We stopped to buy some spices and specialties of Munnar, before we headed towards our journey to Ernakulam.
Little did I know that Munnar’s captivating beauty was still to charm us on our way back! That, my friend, I’ll tell you next time…
