Oh how hard it was to stay in Bangalore this summer, 2013 Summer was horrible, we have seen 38degC for the first time, Namma Bengaluru was so much clean and cool,  increasing Population, vehicles had Ruined This Beauty, so i desperately wanted to feel the nature and its charm, so After Researching lot, i Found this Place Thadiyandamol, Believe me this is the only peak where we can see fog even in peak Summer, so I zeroed my plan on this and Decided to Organize this trek followed by Water Activities on the second day in Kaveri Back Water, I posted my Plan on meetup where i hav organized 2 treks in the sharavati's b4, I got my team in no time and we 13 Ppl fixed to make this adventure happen on May 04 2013, and asusal My Adventures are not the common ones, they are unique and exploratory.

We hired a TT and started our journey for Adventure, we departed by 10:00PM from bangalore taking the Mysore Highway, Our Journey included Intro as we all were strangers to each other, Fun Filled Antyakshari followed by Words of experiences each individual had were part of our journey, Reached Virajpet at 6 AM, ohhhh it was chilled down there, our Guide-Mr Ram was waiting for us to take us to the Base Camp, BC was around 30KM from there, we finally reached our BC by around 7AM, Tea and BF was arranged there and rooms to fresh ourselves as well, hmmmm Yummy and complete BF is wat we saw lying on the table, Idli's, wadas, Bisibelebath, god all were pretty much hungry, so we wasted no time and finished it in no time, we packed Some Chapattis and Cabbage Curry for our lunch and boarded in TT to reach the Trek Start Point, its not a usual trek trail we followed it was totally new, hardly ppl knew it, our Plan included a small waterfall trek and Trek to the peak, we reached Trek St point by 9:30Am, and started our trek, it was cool and we found lots of vegetation, which made our trek pleasent, oooohhhh wait there was a Rat Snake which jus passed our way, waaavvv it was pretty fast, we jus culd hav some glimpse of that Black Beauty, we reached WF and there was no Water so no falls,

we took few snaps and started trekking to peak, and here is wat we found on one Lady's Leg ''A LEECH'', can you believe it, Leech in Summer-Now you have got the idea ab the vegetation this Land has got, she had to get rid of 4 Leeches which made there way to her knees, further climbing we found Blueberries on our ways wow a fresh berry-Mind Blowing, we had few and started climbing further,

Yeah on the way we saw Guava trees, ummm there were as sweet as sugar, They are completely Forest Plants no one grew them that's the reason they were tasting so good, we moved forward and to our left we saw a water stream, the fresh, medicated water, nothing can make you so good as water can make tat too a water in the jungle,
we quenched our thirst and ascended, the vegetation was so high, tat the mountain was green rather than golden, which we see in all the mountain of western ghats, the grass turns to golden color in summer, now our path was totally covered with Fog,
we never felt exhausted although the mountain was steep, finally after trekking for 3 hours we made to the peak by 1:00 PM, the peak was pretty chilled fully covered with Fog,

we had our time for relaxation now, and it was time for our lunch as well,

we finished with it and started our descend by 2:30PM, since it was steep so we slipped quite lot of times, but no one had any sign of injuries,

we stopped again near the water source and quenched, our thirst and relaxed a bit, and started our descend, but on the way our guide stopped us for a rock climbing session, ooooooo tats new for me, it was a 15Ft single rock, and almost inclined, but few of us made it, and after our rock climbing session,

we started our descend and reached our BC by 5:00PM, we located a shop nearby and had few sips of ariated drinks which is not healthy though but we had no choice, only tat drink wld make us feel better, we got into our TT and started to travel towards our Camping place which was 70KM from the base camp, its the place near Dubare(Elephant Camp), but it was untouched by humans, we reached by around 8PM, and what we experienced was pretty much adventures, a Lonely House, Back waters, and thick Dark Jungle,

our high tea was ready, A energetic Herbal Hot Drink(Shunti Kashaya) and Hot Mirchi Bajjis, ummmmm man Amazing, we had them and The guides were cautioning us to be very carefull as there are lots of wild animals around this place, and he told us the Last week Experience of his where he found two tigers Roaring near the back waters, and how scary it was, we had our camp fires on, there the guide started scaring us more telling ab the behaviors of wild animals, Tigers, Elephants, Bear were part of teh story, oh look around-we saw fireflies all over the place wow amazing, this was a fantasy for many of us, after these wild stories ;-), time for our dinner, ahhhhhh this is y i love my ppl who help me organizing things in Jungle, the food in the jungle---ummmm so yummy, they prepared chapattis, curries, Veg Biriyani, Kheer, wow  thanks to you ppl who took so much pain in pleasuring us ;-), god we were dam hungry and ate like a beggar, ppl were sleepy already so there was a separate room for the lady's, and we gents had to sleep in the veranda's, the tents were arranged in both the places, few ppl dozed off, and me along with team of 6 ppl  usual started chatting as we don like to sleep in such outings, since we want to experience the inch of everything, topics went on changing from love marriage to arranged, life in metros, animals etc........, finally by around 2PM we went for sleep, around 6AM we all woke up as our bird watching sessions were planned by 7:00AM, we finished our routines and sipped our tea walking on the dam, wow my mornings were never so much amazing, we went for bird watch, luckily we saw few birds which we never saw in our lives, after that we had BF ready and yes it was Upma with curd, we finished it and geared to feel the beautiful Kaveri back Waters with our Kayak's and Dinghy's,
we stepped in respective Boats and started travelling towards the Dive Points which was nearly 10 Mins from the main Land,

we parked our Dinghy's and Kayak's, oh gosh what we found on this land was Foot Prints of wild Tuskar Elephants, which were pretty much fresh,

scary but our guide told that they are 15 days old and there is no threat as such, each one of us started getting into water with out life jackets on, chilled- fresh, wow i feel blessed,

but the Sharavati water was much Amazing compared to this, we can see bamboo forest all around the back waters, which is a sign of elephants existence, we had great time in waters, we spent almost 3 Hours relaxing in water which included swimming as well, there was a branch of tree dried one in bet the waters, each one of us took a dive from it and believe me it was tough as teh branch was so much slippery and weak but we made it :D,

all had fun with Kayak's and got back to the mainland, we relaxed a Bit, it was already 1:00PM, so we dried ourselves and our lunch was ready as well, oh myyyyyyy here we had another amazing treat, Pulao, curd rice, papads, pickles, sambar Rice, yummy isnt it, we quicklyu jumped on it and quenched our hunger, so time to leave this beautiful place, we got into our TT and headed towards Kushal Nagar to drop our Guides, they were so much helpful, we bid them goodbye and moved towards Golden temple/Bailukuppe(A Tibetan Temple), we spent some time in their and left to Bangalore, we reached Bangalore by 10:00PM and time for all of us to depart, and we all departed rejoicing our two days of adventure, which has given us a life time Journey of Adventure Continues.......................................:):):)

The Sharavathi-Trek to Dabbe Falls followed by Island Camping & Water Activities

Hello All, Below i am describing about one more beauty in Sharavti- The Dabbe falls.

Dabbe Falls:

Trek Difficulty-Medium(very steep for about a KM)
Trek KM-10

Things Must Have while trekking Dabbe : Good pair of trekking shoes, Rope, Water bottles and a guide.

After My Visit to Sharavati Forest in recent times with 13 ppl where i was the organizer, Trekking to Kanoor Kote, Veegi/Hosgithi Falls & Jainbasthi, i couldn't accept the fact that i have not made it to One of the beautiful water Falls in Sharavati-The Dabbe Falls, so on the way back to Bangalore i had fixed my next trek to organize, and one more thing which attracted ab Sharavati was The Water, the most Pleasant, Cool, purest form of water i have ever experienced, so things got fixed in my mind ab my next adventure-to Trek Dabbe followed by Water Activities next day :-D.

As Now I knew the local Ppl somewhat well, i started checking about the possibilities of the two day Activity in Sharavati, after thinking alot zeroed on Dabbe Trek for 1 day, Camping in the island, followed by water activities like Swimming, Kayaking Canoeing on the next day.

I(Organizer) along with 18 Other Ppl Started in a Mini Bus @10:00PM from Majestic on a Friday Night, I never knew playing antakshari was so much funny so few ppl turned the whole scene around, and made us to laugh like hell, we reached around 6:45AM at Kargal on sat Morning, we had some tea and waited for a local Guy to Show us the BC, we finally reached the BC, this time BC was different  it was a Temple inside the forest, everyone started to fresh themselves up and me along with few bunch started exploring the surroundings, there we found a Water Stream, good view of a stream with cool morning essence, there waited our Morning BF, Idli, Wada & Sambar followed by Tea-Hmmm Yummy......we left to the trek Starting Point in our Bus which was 20 KM Away, there we go some wildlife, we saw 6-7 Cheetal Group Passing our way, and few had a change to Sight the Rearly Found Macaque-The Lion tailed Monkey, We reached the Trek Starting point @ 10:30AM, we started to Trek to Dabbe-with our Backpacks along with 3 Guides who even carried groceries for our afternoon lunch on their heads , we never felt we are trekking in Summer coz the trail was mostly Covered with Dense Forest, walking through several Streams, remember we all are very much unknown to each other, it was totally a strange group united for this memorable adventure, we started knowing each other and found that we are alike when it comes to adventure, now was the challenge, we came across a steep which was 45% all over for a KM,

we are set aback that we need to really follow this trial, as someone rightly said-the difficult way always leads to heaven-Its O course Said by me, there was a couple who aged above 50, i couldn't really believe they actually trekked it, awesome energy shown by them, u have to be very careful as this terrain has lots of rock which are nor strongly grounded, if we step on them the person on the incline next to u will get badly hurt, we stepped on several rocks but luckily no one got hurt, and after descending to a ample amount of distance, we were shocked to see the trail got more worse as some 20 Mts we need to Descend by holding rope ,

but believe me ahhhhhhh what an adventure experience that was, than we saw the Beauty making sounds, n mesmerized to see a Fall falling frm a height of 150-200 Mts, wow in the peak summer we were actually witnessing the Waterfall which had Ample amount of water to pleasure our Eyes,

Everyone wanted to get down in Water after this difficult Trail, so no one wasted time to make their sweat worth, we all had great time in the purest form of water, singing, shouting, cheerful moments for all of us, we spent around 2Hours in water and it was 2:30PM, we started Ascending back-guessing how diff wld be to climb on the same terrain, but it was not so much difficult, The Food was all prepared and we wasted no time to grab that delicious food, it was Rice with Drumstick Sambar with Pickle and papad, we took some rest and than started our 4KM trek back to the Bus, we boarded and started to Travel towards the island where we need to Camp that night, we reached one of the tribal house and where we had The best Kashaya(kannada word-a herbal hot drink) and followed by Mirchi Bajji, hmmmmmm mouth watering those were, it was already dark and we need to cross the river in that pitch dark evening,
the island-HALKE was located far around 1KM from the mainland, we took a coracle and reached the island by around 8:00PM, wow what a lifetime experience, being in water when its dark, n riding a was a pitch dark island where we can see only the campfires, no other forms of lights ever existed,


we all rejoiced the amount of adventure we had on day 1, followed by some great mature talks ab our passions by Chitra(Remember the old Couple), we had several Debates, cool breeze as we were very much nearer to the water, few ppl slept as they were too tired, than the food was all on the way, everyone woke up to see whats on the platter, hmmmm all eyes were wide open smelling that delicious food in the jungle, it was Bisibelebath, Curd rice, Chappati with Cabbage Curry and Sweet(paisa-made up of rice), we all had tummy full Dinner and than everyone headed towards the tents where our Nature Sleep was planned, everyone slept but me along with 3 friends went near to the river and started exchanging our experiences as u know these day are jus for once and they will never come back so we thought of skipping our sleep for few hours although we had worst sleep on the other day we traveled  cool wind, the sight of a moon, and pitch black island with everyone slept, made the night more calm and clean, after spending few hours we slept in our respective tents as well, the sun arises next morning, we woke up by 6:30AM, coming out of our respective tents, we felt so lovely feeling the chilled air, with Sun jus showing his effects, a beautiful Sunrise on the island was treat to watch,


although max ppl were still in tents napping,

myself along with few friends went to explore the island forest, walking inside the forest on the Halke island felt so gud due to the cool Breeze, it was no natural, no human traces at all, we took a two KM walk and returned back feeling nature,


we freshened up ourselves, backpacked things, our BF was ready-it was Ragi and Rice Dosa with yummy tasting Sambar & Chatni, we finished our BF, now time to take a dive in the river we were appreciating all night and day, initially non-swimmers very bit scared, but with the life jackets on,
everyone was pretty confident that they wld never sink whatsoever  trainer instructed few precautions and they we all were into the cool, pure water, ahhh it felt so good, but actually we had to swim all over a KM to reach the mainland,

believe me we never got exhausted swimming so long, we climbed the dry trees in the middle of river and took dives, words fall short to express such feelings, amazing it was, after 4 hours we reached the mainland swimming all the way, but no one was ready to leave water even after so many hours, than we took our respective kayaks and Coracles and started our rides,

wonderful is what i can say, after this fun-filled water activities, we were dam hungry, and by 2:00PM our lunch was ready, again a great lunch which included, pullao, curd rice, papad & picle,

we relaxed for about 1 hour and started walking back to the tribal house where we have parked our vehicle, we reached and tea was waiting for us, finally we departed to Bangalore  Being in Sharavati again was amazing experience, its again an unforgettable lifetime experience for me.........................

Write me on if any details needed.

Your's Truly,



Hello All,

I am here with one more blog after heavenly experience in Kumara parvata, compared to KP, this was an easy one, nature lovers will not like it much as its been commercialized n u can see jeeps reachin almost peaks and the mud roads where jeeps commute will make ur way more horrible covered with whole of dust, but the peak is all dust free n non commercialized so that made us feel it was worth trekking for almost 17KMs.

Kodachadri is a mountain peak with dense forests (altitude - 1343 metres above sea level)[2] in the Western Ghats in South India (Shimoga Dist., Karnataka State). It is declared as natural heritage site by Government Karnataka.[3]

Trek Start Point : Nittur
Trek KM : 17 Kms(one way) to the shankaracharya peetha.
Trek date : Dec 15 2012

we started @11:00PM from bangalore in a Xylo, believe me guys the best spacious car where all 7 of us sat very comfortably, just 10 odd KM reaching sampekatte u ll find one bridge and the scene is just amazing, it is one treat to your camera.

After early morning treat of this beauty, we headed towards sampekatte where we thought of freshening up, so friends here is the thing which has to be taken care of!! their is one HOMESTAY called PARVATH HOME STAY, please stay away frm this as first lady told us 50 Rs/Person for fresh up and than insisted us to take BF n carry lunch since we will not get any food in btw, so we ordered avalakki vagarne for BF and lemon Rice for Lunch, we never minded to ask teh rates of BF and lunch, so it landed up quite expensive, they charged 1100.00 Rs for BF and lemon rice for 7 of us, so friends since this has become so commercial ppl around will try to loot u as much as poss, so settle out all in the beginning oly. by 9:00AM we left to Nittur which was our starting point of our Trek, we booked a guide well before leavin bangalore, so we hired a jeep to n fro which costed us 1400 Rs + 600 Guide fee, jeep will take our laguage to the top while ascend  n we all will descend in the jeep after sunrise, that s wat we have planned for!! so we started our trek by 10:30AM and reached Hidlumane falls by 12:00PM, this is one more attraction on the trek way, we took bath here and spent quality 1 hr time.

by 1:15PM we started to ascend again, but root was bit challenging from here, it gets steeper now n we reached a shooting point around 2:30PM, and thought of breakin for lunch, did so.,....and remember guys this the only water source after falls, we had costly lemon rice and ascended towards peak, you will get the view of the golden mountain which is eye catching and some good scenes as well, so keep your camera focused all time.

we reached moola mookambika temple by 4:00PM, where we thought tat we had booked PWD GH, but unfortunately our guide was not successful in booking the same and he gave us a shock that rooms were full when we reached, anyways we started heading towards Shankaracharya peetha which is the peak of kodachadri, the sunset is must watch frm this peak.

After mesmarising senset, we descended towards the pwd GH, where unfortunately we din get rooms and thought of heading towards kollur, guys everything is commercialized here even the Bhattar mane at the top who behaves mad, so please be very cautious, we have to pay in advance to this Bhatta(who basically is a mallu guy) and than @ 7:30PM we asked for Dinner, he was acting as if he is showing some mercy feeding us by asking us to wait till he calls n all, so we left the money and food back their and descended down in jeep @8:00PM and reached by 9PM and had food in Nittur, the guide was also one of those money eater, we have to pay him full even though he din get rooms for us @ top and it was totally a costly affair for us.......but a must trek atleast once with prior precautions......please add me in FB, if you are interested for treks.
