1. Donegal – Yedakumeri
This trek destination also known as “Green Route” is a unique one; the trek involves a railway track throughout the stretch. The route begins at Donegal. This stretch of about 20 kilometers will take you through an evergreen forest with numerous streams and enchanting waterfalls. This route has a number of bridges, some of them around one kilometer long and 200 meters deep. One also has to pass through dark tunnels. Once at Yedakumeri one can take rest in the abandoned railway station. At least one night stay is recommended as the place has plenty to explore. While enjoying the water bodies en-route keep an eye out for leeches.
