Ponmudi was indeed a great experience although a more powerful one than the diesel Indica could have been a better choice. But beggars can’t be choosers. Filled up the car from a station near Vazhayila, a place often in the news about burst water pipes. Y-joint or something, they say. I digress. Top Station can be reached if you negotiate the 22 hairpin bends successfully. The fee booth near the pseudo entrance to the top came as an unwelcome surprise. Meadows in the breeze is a sight worth the trip.
