PLAN:

It was a week since we visited TG reservoir , plus we had a holiday on 26th of Jan..God knows why :d… So we decided to go outta town on tat day..Manu, Arv, Ashok agreed..but unfortunately Arun couldn’t as he was busy..
We thought of leaving at 6am (our usual time) Ashok made it by 7.., due to some work Arvi was in Hossur the exact opposite part of the city :( ..ANOTHER FLOP?? :’(



I badly wanted to this trip, we hadn’t come to this place when we came to Mekedat ..Arvi said he would make to my place no matter wat happens.. Whew that was G00D NEWS :)
As Ashok had come early. We played cricket in our garage ( Galli ^ 2 Cricket :D) then watched a movie… Manu joined us for lunch..Mom had cooked nice nice Food :) Arvi made it our place at about 1:30 pm… We packed some biscuits & finally left at 2 pm ( Ps : 2pm is the latest time we`v Left till date)
TIME: 14:00 hrs

RIDE:




It was about 100 km from Namma Bengalur00..So we had to Rip big time tat clearly meant I shouldn’t drive Hehe :D Manu & Arvi hit the road at 90’s- 100’s constantly… As I was sitting back..had nothing to do..so Put some Bodom’s playist ..Yeah \m/ \m/
We stopped at a small town on the way to Kankapura & picked up 2-3 bottles of juice. Then there was no stopping , headed in flow to reach Kankpura in no time. After Kankapura, a s00per d00per road leads us to Chunchi & Mekedat.
AShok rode from there & we reached Chunchi in flat 1.5hrs...parked our bikes & headed down... The terrain was very rocky and pretty dangerous too… we saw a small stream and OFFICAILLY named it as mini Chunchi Haha!! Washed our faces and continued…
TIME: 15:30 hrs



CHUNCHI:




Far away we could see an eagles nest or something like tat pretty far away ,,, Yup tat was our target… We were very careful about the rocks as it was slippery and we weren’t wearing shoes :( :( the place was very beautiful it was like some lost lake … very nice place….
There was this rock ...pretty high from water ..it was a fall into water if one would overstep that rock… We could see only ashok`s head at the tip of the rock…calling out for help. For a moment our heart stopped!! Holy shit… next moment we could see him laughing …there was a rock underwater…it was as though he was standing on water. :D



Then after climbin up high rocks…jumpin across a few..we finally made it to the nest kindaa thing… Sat down….opened the juice bottles and biscuits…and had it peacefully…We could see other people looking at Chunchi from where we were..It was about 5…we knew we had to leav...
TIME: 17:00 hrs





RIDE BACK:
We left at about 5 pm, we had spend about 1.5 hrs at Chunchi … there was no turning back …. And we hit the road back at above 100 km/hr …Haha there was another funny incident… Ashok and arvi were ahead of us…a uncle in some bike came in front of them…they slowed down & had to stop ….Manu & myself zoomed past them I shouted “ OOOyeee , Nodkondu ODSo LOAfer “ ( Open your eyes when u drive in polite terms :P)



Both ashok and arvi were shocked Hehe :)..that uncle gave us a dangerous stare…
AS we headed back there was this crazy bunch of kids on 2 dio`s and an activa… they ripped past us at 90`s… I didn’t speak anything… Ashok didn’t speak anything..Avi & Manu Stepped on it…Vroom they went past them…all me and Ashok did was look at them and gave them a BIG SMILE :D .
The sunset on the way back was very beautiful.. Arvi touched 123 km/hr on NICE ROAD while comin back..We reached Bangalore at about 6pm…It was a very fast trips…and one of those trips where u have your heart in your mouth every minute… :D
We had kickass fun tat is the most important part of going so far…. We were disappointed tat Arun couldn’t join us…but Hey we can always Go back… Can finish Mekedat and Chunchi in a day easily.. they are only about 10km apart..
Thank YOU :)
TIME: 18:00 hrs

TG RESERVOIR: (19/1/2010)




It was the 2nd day of our 4th sem, it was a Tuesday.. as usual we were bored in col hoping to get an off :) all of a sudden the afternoon session was called off :D.
We decided to go to TG reservoir since it was pretty close by. Arvi, Ashok,Arun & Manu waited near col..i ran back to my house and got my bike.. Lets leave guys!! Time 1 :15 :)
The drive was very Good, Nice Empty road.. we drove very slow, making fun of each other throughout the way!! Arun & Manu on UNICORN..Arv & Ashok on RTR and Kd alone…We stopped at a wonderful place on the way and wasted a lot of time there before realizing it was too late..We hit the road.!! We reached the main gates of the reservoir, Arv & me went and asked the guard whether we were allowed inside. He said no visitors… we had to speak to him for about 15 min….finally he told us there was a small road which would lead us to the water…WhEW!! Tat was a relief :) :) By tat time arun was furious..reason??? Somebody had called him up sayin they had received calls from tat no.. Yup it was Manu makin prank calls :D.. Then Arvi and Ashok headed off full force.. I was behind them…Arun behind me..
There was this small bridge.. a huge lorry at about 60`s-70`s headed towards us..Arvi and Ashok somehow crossed the bridge..GULP!!! I held my nerve and steady.. VrOOm I it went past..almost blew me off the bridge :D..I see in front Arvi and Ashok were giving Big smiles.. :D :D. Then they went off way ahead.. Arun & me were going together..Arun spotted the small way.. We 3 stopped..but Arv and ashok had gone further..we called them up and told them to return.. Arun & me parked our bikes..Manu & me decided to explore the place and see if there route which woud lead us down to the water & requested Arun to wait for Arvi & ashok.
We went down on the muddy track.. we spotted tractor tracks, so were sure thre was a way!! We returned back to find arvi and ashok had returned.. We all parked our bikes.. Arun locked his helmet ,while me & arvi carried it :D (Read ON!!)
We walked down the muddy terrain , But there were no signs of water :(. We knew there was water near by.. we only had to find it.. AND FINALLY!!!! We a glance of the 1st part of the reservoir, we headed further to Spot the entire reservoir :D
The terrain in pretty steep and with rocks and grass… we had the best time of our lives.. fighting!! Throwin all things possible at each other…picking up branches and sword fighting :D .Ding dong!! We had wasted a lot of time again…hehe then we decided to run on the rocky terrain… Whew tat set off AShok..he ran like thre was no tomo :D Omg!! He was like ‘PEEP PEEP ..Roadrunner Coming thro make way ‘:D..he went atleast 300-400 m away.. waving at us from the other section!!! Then Manu sat down and said he`s not moving anywhere till he finishes his dabbi… Arun Picked a huge Stone.. GULP!! I stepped back silently without uttering a word Haha!! :D
Going further along the reservoir we found the perfect spot for lunch..we sat down had lunch happily forgetting all the Shitty things we go thro everyday.. FELT REAL GOOD :). After eating we knew we had come a long way so decided to walk back.. we were totally tired and collapsed in front of bikes on the ground..Then all of a sudden Arun goes ‘Shit!!! My helmet’s missing :(.’ He got real upset, but hey we were all there… we decided to search!! We split up.. Ashok & arun decided to go back to the reservoir and ask the fishermen,, Arv, Manu & me decided to search near our bikes.. We no luck finding it.. the new also decided to go back down to the reservoir .
We saw Ashok and Arun coming back with a fisherman.. Seeing us three..the fisherman got scared and stepped back (Finally somebody scared of me Wooohooo!!! Hi5) Common we were really frustrated.. Ashok and arun gave us indications to shut the hell up…we walked the fisherman walk past us … he said he had kept the helmet in a safe place fearing tat the local people would steal it and sell it.. we continued to stare at him.. he got real scared..and gave back the helmet and said he had no intention of stealin it and crap like tat… We retrieved the helmet and drove back peacefully:)
It was a very good trip considering the fact tat we left after our col got over.. we walked a long way along the reservoir, fooling around, had real fun!!!
Most importantly forgetting all the Shit from our daily lives…!! It was a kickass start to 4th sem :D
* The only part we behaved normally was when had to speak to the fisherman..otherwise we were like small kids running, fighting, throwing stones, etc.. Great times :) :) Thank you guys!!!!

Distance: 50 x 2 = 100kms.
Directions: Bengaluroo > Banerghatta Road > Anekal > Right turn > Pearlvalley.
Participants: Arun > Manu > Sp.
Bikes: Unicorn > Pulsar.
Previous visit: Nandhi Hills -Sunrise

PLAN:

It was about 10 days since we finished Nandi hills trip. We wanted to go for a short drive and trek a lil… then I came across this place called muthyala maduvu also called the pearl valley :) . It was a kickass place… It was decided it was the next place we would visit.
Called up my frnz and told them about this place.. arun was ready… Arv said he needed some time to decide..Ashok said he couldn make it :(.. So on 8th eve Arun & me went to Honda showroom to get his bike from servicing..then went to Arv`s house and asked whether he could come the next day… he said he had some work and couldn’t make it.

So we drove back ,sat in a chat shop havin chats totally confused whether we should go or not…we went back to our houses…then went for a long walk… finally decided to hit the road the next day!!!

RIDE :

It was the 9th of Jan…we met up in front of my house at about 6am..Manu joined us… Boi!! Was he pumped up… He was like don’t care where we`r going as long as we go :D..
We hit the road…the drive was very smooth…Arun and Manu on UNICORN…and me alone…we cruised at 70’s – 80’s. The road was excellent, but the only problem was getting to the actual place :( ..
We had to whistle,wave,shout,scream and sometimes ask politely for directions…still remb this incident.. was funny..ok here goes thre was this tractor..we had to ask for directions.. they couldn’t hear us…so I ran behind the tractor…jumpin high in the air…waving at them…”Oooye Oy..!! How to Go??? “ finally got directions, I turn back.. see Arun and Manu laughin at me :D

Finally we reached the actual place..we parked our bikes in front of a lonely lodge in the middle of the forest.. and we found some steps down near the lodge.. which lead us into the forest…as soon as we entered the forest we found an abandoned Shop… we tried to find something to steal :P..couldn find a thing…

THE FOREST :

We were the only three in the forest…could hear only all sorts of animal sounds..and all of a sudden water falling,… Yippee!! There was a super Dooper water falls..not a big one..small Kutti falls :). We removed our socks and sandals (Oh ya we forgot to wear shoes :D) and sat below the falls for sometime..walkin in the water exploring the place :).

After tat we decided to go deeper into the forest.The route was a narrow one..but a kickass one & pretty scary too..Lots of bushes and fallen trees aall around us..Im pretty sure there were lots snakes all around us ,had to be EXTRA careful about my knee.. it was still in pain thanks to slip in Mekedat…We decided to go deeper into the forest..
It was becoming more & more dense with every step we took… As we were heading further we saw a kickass stick insect..perfectly camouflaged:) :). Too much of man vs wild influence..so spotted it with ease.:D. As we went deeper we found some fresh elephants droppings.. I was over the Moon looking at the elephants droppings :P..
I always wanted to see an elephant in the wild.. we were the only three in forest as far as we know… couldn hear a thing.. I was lik,,Commmmmooonn!! One Kutti baby elephant then we head back.. I wont even go near it…promise :).
They agreed ,we went deeper and deeper…not able to spot any elephant..:( the forest got really thick now..Manu & Arun got me back to my senses and we decided to head back.. Hehe ..But we saw lots of other creatures..truely beautiful…Nature At its BEST :).There was this huge Bush ..a lil canopy kinda thing..it looked dangerous.. I saw it turned around.” Atleast we`l …” …Manu – ‘ No way!!!’ finally they agreed on one condition…I had to go there 1st ( Thanks a lot!! Hehe) . I walked slowly, whispering ‘ macha if I die?/?’ finally went inside it..it was pretty dark inside…then gave a thumbs up ..they came inside it too…sat thre for sometime.. just listenin to all the wild noises around us.. then Manu declared himself as the INVISBLE DEVIL :D

Then we headed back…while trekking back …we saw another group of trekkers who had come then..

Then we reached back to the lodge where we started the trekk..we had coverd about 10 km into the forest.. we were pretty happy with that and very satisfied.
While driving back Manu & me in PULSAr..and Arun alone…we stopped at a decent hotel and had very good food :) tat too two rounds…

RIDE BACK:

Everything was perfect , good roads.. good food…good trek.. nice funn throwin rocks … only part we weren’t happy was ashok and Arvi couldn join us :( ( Bro`s a re-visit For sure..promise !!).

We returned safely back home..Arun & manu left !!! Had a wonderful trip.. the only trip in the Mid sem Hols… 4th sem was upcoming!!!


And while comin back on the nice road we put our college id`s to full use :)

PEACE \/
