I request to rename the thread as

"Coimbatore - Malls/Multiplex/Entertainment Updates"(more standard usage terms in SSCI) instead of having Hangout/Weekend get away.

Let us take to mods if everyone agrees.

Good initiative nonamio. Excellent Photos. Thanks to Senthil, Dhanapani and Karthik. Just a suggestion, as a localite, we all know these places very well around cbe. If you guys provide more details like approx. distance from Coimbatore City, Route, Best Season to visit etc...along with snaps, it will be useful for the first time vistors.

This is Pilloor Dam, Bhavani River - Located in a place called Baralikadu near Karamadai - Famous for coracle ride and trekking on the foothills of Nilgiris

Distance from Coimbatore City - 70 Kms
Route : Coimbatore- Karamadai - Velliankadu- Athikkadavu - Baralikadu
Visting time : Only week ends and Public holidays
Reservation: Required from Forest Dept. Contact number 0422-2302925
Bus facility - Limited. Only two buses available from Karamadai.

A strong -1 (Minus 1) :lol:

Malls / Multiplexes / Movie halls are NOT weekend getaways:) Lot of people have a notion that CBE doesn't have a good outdoor weekend getaway place which I strongly object to. If we strictly limit this thread to Forest preserves, Parks, Museums, Dams, Waterfalls and Historical sites we don't have to dig thru between Restaurants and Malls to find valuable information.

Just my 2 cents

Also instead of just posting photos, I would suggest to to append information like "How to get there?", "Facilities available on the outdoor location" etc.,

As I mentioned in the Coimbatore infrastructure thread, I am still in the priliminary stages of putting together a powerpoint presentation to improve Western Ghats, Forest preserves etc., at CBE. Those info will be valuable for me too while coming up with that.
