started after 1 hour and reached udipi temple by 1.30pm had a quick darshan and awesome anna prasadam in temple premises.
in one word krishna statue at udipi looks awesome.
surprised of seeing some devotes having anna prasada on floor itself
started at 2pm towards sringeri via agumbe.
in one word route is awesome and drivers delight.
Just before Agumbe
Reached Agumbe sunset point and view is awesome (ofcourse nothing visible due to heavy misty clouds)
every body pleased with feeling on there in clouds.
including this guy
Reached sringeri by 4.50pm
checked in temple gusethouse just opposite to sringeri temple.
rooms are big, clean and good for families
only minus is they will provide hot water from 5.30am till 9.00am
Refreshed by 5.40pm and reached temple.
welcomed grandly by this grand guy
Had dinner at sringeri temple premises itself.
Day3: Sringeri - Mullayangiri peak - Babu budangiri hills - Bangalore
Started our day early at 6am went for another darshan of sringeri sarada devi
had pipping hot breakfast at hotel beside temple guest house.
start off at 8am to mullayangiri peak
Wait do i need a separate travelogue to tell how the place is?
in one word irrespective of age every body saw colours of life
we stopped at mullayangiri peak base point and started enquiring how is route? whether our cars will go smoothly? (i have fair experience when i visit this peak 4 years back on bykes according to me roads are good, very narrow with valley at every corner and nook)
but still i want to ensure roads are good?
A Jeep wala told your cars wont go it may damage under body as roads are hugely potholed, we ignored him as he want his business from us.
stopped an enthu bike rider coming from peak
Sir, how was road?
No problem its pot holed at parts but if you are super
confident you can go in your cars.
Arei baba we are confident thats why we came all the way with a group of 15 people sorry 3 half tickets in that...............but wait we missed super
started to mullayangiri peak ( let me explain what colours of life we saw) Courage:
we took a risk of going to highest valley with 10% visibility(fully clouded).
lets not forgot we are group of families peace:
after driving 1km we lost this some where in dwindling winds. our cars shaking like playing cards disgust:
we can park our cars in potholes of road. my car stucked in pothole and refused to come out of that. not shown in my face but deep down i am cursing myself for taking such an dare step Wonder:
Finally reached there and saw group of people having bajjis(oh my god climate looks like 2012 december but people are celebrating there joy) Joy:
parked our cars and ensured children get locked in cars and started trekking to temple.
Finally we started enjoy
we trekked to highest peak temple have some snap shots and came back for an icecream ( what a feeling while trekking wind is literally trying to throw away, its too cold)
in one word we loved the place to core
Had bajjis icecreams what not saw end of world climate.
Hahah photo wont speak thousand words here
spend almost 2 hours there and drive to babu budangiri datta peeta.
climate as bad as mullayangiri peak - every colour we saw there.
had quick darshan and set our maps to bangalore
