The three sticketeers venture into the Jungle in Kumily, the state of Kerala in S. India.

“You have gun?”
“We were told you have gun.”
“We don’t.”
“If tiger come at me, how I stop?”
“If you see tiger, tiger run away. If you see elephant, big problem. Elephant run faster than you in jungle.”

It found the hole in our tent already.

This landed on me. The guide looked a bit startled, flicked it off and then rubbed his head on my arm to remove any possible poison 🙂

After trekking Buffalo for a good few hours.. we finally find…!… a cow.

Look how pissed off the guide is 😀

But then.. just as it gets dark.. and one guide wants to go back… we finally find a trail… and climb up a tree….!

Me & the elephant. I look a bit worried as i’m balancing on a half eaten branch pretty high up.

Also if we made any sound or the elephant smelt us she might smash down the tree that we were in..

All of us in the tree!

We decided no tent for us on the second night.

This was much much more disturbing for sleep. Every branch break, every sound you wake up. And especially when the guides woke us up looking worried – which is the last thing you want in the Jungle. Our guides didn’t tell us what was in the darkness until the following morning…

In the morning our guides woke us up V early and took us climbing up to the top of the nearby cliff. This is what we saw at its peak:

A masive thanks to our guides – if you want to go to the Jungle in India, just ask & we’ll give you Babus number!

(It was an illegal trip – but it was fun!)
