The Seven Faces

100 Happy Days – Day 77

A Trip to Ezhattumugham and Athirappilly waterfalls – Ezhattumugham Episode

I heard of the place Ezhattumugham from my good friend Tenyย for the first time. I had made a mental note to go to this place when my aunt arrived from US, my cousin suggested this place and all of a sudden I was thrown into a cab and taken here. ๐Ÿ™‚
You might have wondered about the title of this post. Ezhattumugham means Seven faces of the river.
The river at one point of time, divides itself into seven parts due to the islets and boulders. Hence the nameย Ezhattumugham. ๐Ÿ™‚
I have divided this post into four parts, half of which I am updating in the next post. I know that long posts could be such a pain. I assure you that there are more of pictures in here and less words.

  1. En routeย to Ezhattumugham

We took these pictures on our way. To simply put it, this is how most of Kerala looks like. Most of the houses here, have a window that facesย trees, shrubs and lots of greenery. I am not referring to the cities, though.

2. Ezhattumugham
Ezhattumugham is famous for its suspension bridge and the fact that it gives an opportunity to the visitors to actually enjoy in the water. I say this because, generally when we visit water bodies, many women do not enter the water due to many reasons. Fear of slippery rocks, water current etc being few of the reasons. Here, the water is shallow, not so slippery and there are many boulders to hop over or sit down. It is a different place as you will see.
What intrigued me was the factย that the suspension bridge here, connects two districts of Kerala – Ernakulam and Trissur. ๐Ÿ™‚
The water seems more like a sheet of glass

Nature manages to astound me every single time

In the images below, you can see the rocks amidst the water. The water here is very shallow. We walked across this place for a while.
Hop atop the boulders and splash through the waters

This is a tree house we found there. Normally, these houses have a rope ladder attached to them. We did not find it here.

The places I went to that day, are beautiful in their own way. No camera can capture the beauty.ย There is nothing like viewing them in reality. Even though images speak louder than words, I don’t want to cram too many images in one post. Hence, I have compiled rest of them in the next post.
