I was too excited to go to Velliangiri. It is not just trekking, it is like going to meet the divine. You just have to be there once in a lifetime, once you go, you will know!



I thought it would be just another mountain trek. But Velliangiri will show you your physical limitations that you thought never existed. It will break you to make you flourish!
