Trek to Sittilingi

Last month, we had organised a millet mission meeting in Sitlingi. I, Shankar, Ananthu and Arjun walked down from Poondikadu to Nammangadu. The plan was that Arjun would return with Ram of samanvaya in the vehicle.
We started by 8.30am after some breakfast at Shankar’s place. The going was easy and fun till the stream bed. The stream here passes through some huge boulders whitish in color. This is why the river here is called Vellai Kallaaru ( “white stone” stream).

After this point which is about 2 km from Poondikadu, it was getting hot. By the time we reached nammangadu arjun was already tired.
We had a nice useful meeting. when we started back it was already 4.30pm. Bad news was no vehicle to go back! Arjun also needs to walk back! by the time we reached the stream point, it was getting dark and climb steeper! A very difficult task for a nine year old! It was a total of 10km up and down. Hats off to Arjun!
