It seemed the long run on Saturday was not enough, so we took off early on Sunday morning as well, but this time in a car instead of on foot. We headed towards Anthargange. Supposedly, it is a spring (source of water) which explains the name. We were interested because the place is filled with … Continue reading Anthargange
In the first weekend of this month, my trekking gang and myself went to Mullainagiri and Bababudangiri for trekking. We've never experienced a "monsoon trek" / "rain trek", so this was our chance to go for it. I've done the Mullainagiri trek before and I was quite looking forward to it again. I remember my … Continue reading Mullainagiri and Bababudangiri

Last weekend, my trekking gang and myself went to Kumara Parvatha - the place I had heard so much about - "the toughest trek in Karnataka", "the 2nd highest peak in Karnataka", and so on. It turned out to be all that and much more. Unlike many of our previous treks, this trek was preceded … Continue reading Kumara Parvatha
Rama Devara Betta (literally, Lord Rama's Hill) is located just behind the Siddaganga mutt on Tumkur Road, and is about 60+ km from Bangalore. A couple of friends and myself went there yesterday to trek. There was a trail that led to the top of the hill but we didn't take it. We basically "made … Continue reading Rama Devara Betta
I'm writing this a few days after coming back to Bangalore, because I had to get over my holiday hangover. It seems unfair to gain so much, make so many new friends and have so much fun, and suddenly let it go, and that too, back to the daily routine life. The trip was centred … Continue reading The Dalhousie Trip

After Saturday's long Python talk, we returned to the guest house in the evening and I simply crashed on the bed and had a great sleep. On Sunday morning, I was woken up by Dilip saying 'Hey, its 9 am. We have to go trekking!'. In an hour, we were on a jeep travelling 34 … Continue reading Trek at Thusharagiri
