It is 5 Kms from Irrupu falls with fill of grass lands and Ups and down with both sides of the grass land surrounded with Violet flowers. The entrance to the guest house you have bridge, it a wooden logs rol down naturally, 4 feet down depth is there with water following down. We reached the guest house. We were asked remove our shoes see for leeches, " From Base camp to the Middle station every were you can find them". The Narimala guest is blood donation camp to the Leeches......... Quickly we had Lunch and our guide said we have close by Mountain where you get nice view of the clouds touching you.By the time we started walking it was 4.00 PM, the path covered with lot of grass lands with slushy water each and every step we found Leeches, despite that hurdle we were able to reach the place what you see in this video..............below

After reaching Kutta, Irrupu falls is 0.5kms and it was reached with ease since we were late, the group decide to take bath while returning back as we need to climb the 5 Kms to reach the Narimala guest House owned by Karnataka. The guide who lead us the way was so calm & composed while rafi and others where coming slow pushing the slow walking people.
We stopped in between and waited for others to Join the guide always cautioned us , as multiple path ways are found and people get lost if they do not follow the people going in the front.
