Earlier in the year I walked a distance of 29km with a friend, from Masinagudi to Ooty up the 36 hairpin bends. I posted a few photos from this trek on the road and it became one of the most viewed and searched term hitting this blog. For the hairpin bend lovers, haters, searchers and seekers I am posting more photos of hairpin bends from the walk as my New Year gift to you.
Most curves has a convex mirror like this. In the reflection are the two of us.
Here’s another one.
A sedan carefully navigating the curve.
Most cars come down nice and slow.
As for others no so fortunate, it’s a frightening experience.
We walked, walked…
31 done. 5 more to go.
I don’t know why I don’t have a picture of the final bend. Anyway it was a gruesome walk. My friend KD wanted to halt at the small town before Ooty but I pushed him. We checked into the first hotel at Ooty and boarded a bus back to Bangalore the next day.
If you are looking for a simple and still challenging adventure, I fully recommend you try something like this. I have done such other walks namely- Salem to Yercaud, a distance of 50km almost around Bangalore twice, to all the towers of Bangalore, Zemabawk to Saikhamakawn on World Bank Road in Aizawl.
