Visit to Kapu Beach

My son always loves the beach, this is my second trip to Kapu beach within three months.  Started the from Muniyalu around 11.30 am.   

Took the route of Muniyalu – Karkala – Padubidri – Kapu Beach.  We love Kapu beach than Malpe beach.  This is very less crowded and walkable from the parking lot.  You can enjoy the beach without much strain.

Mysuru Round Trip on Bullet

The last Bullet trip was almost a year back Rameshwaram, I was badly wanted to go somewhere a long drive.  Sudhakar suggested and planned to go round the trip of Mysuru on 18th September 2016.  Joined with us Veeru & Ram on another bike.

Route Chosen
Bengaluru – Mysuru – Krishna Raja Sagar – Kannambadi – Bhoovaraha Swamy Temple – Melukote – Nagamangala – Nelamangala – Bengaluru

Left the Bengaluru on 17th September 2016 night around 9.30 pm.  Stayed night Sudhakar’s sister home at Mysuru.  The night ride was awesome, reached Mysuru around 12.45 am.


Finished yummy breakfast at sister home and left morning around 8.30 am.  Firstly visited the Krishna Raja Sagar Dam.  We have witnessed the Kaveri river flowing helplessly Karnataka towards Tamilnadu.  The security was tightened around the dam.  

Continued our journey towards Kannambadi, the place of Kaveri backwater area.  It was very pain to see the backwater area, the water presence is far away.  

Farmers are cultivating the land inside the Dam.  This is the situation of Kaveri river this year.  

Venugopal Swamy temple is coming up on the bank of Kaveri river.  Still the construction work is going on.  

Spent good time with photography and continued our journey towards Bhoo Varaha Swamy Temple, Kallahalli.  

Unfortunately we could not able to have Darshana, the goddess alankara time.  Had swamy Prasad and continued the journey towards Melukote.  

On the way we relaxed couple of minutes in the beautiful place.  We reached the Melukote around 3pm.  

Explored the surrounding area and spent good time for photography.  

Now the time to adieu beautiful place and ahead towards the Bengaluru.  

We decided to go back through Hasana highway.  Taking the Nagamangala, Bellur cross reached Bengaluru around 9 pm.  Overall we covered around 428 KMs.  

One more memorable journey added in my life with good buddies. The weather was awesome and enjoyed entire the journey.

Road Trip: Sigandoor & Sharavathi Backwater

Again, one more weekend, again one more new place exploration with family. After two attempts failure, due to some reasons, finally succeeded road journey to Sigandoor & Sharavathi Backwater on 4th September 2016.
The same Maruti 800 took us without any distress, drizzling added more beauty to our journey.  Sigandoor was one of the pending in my to do list.  Due to rain, I could not able to take much photos.

The Sigandoor temple is situated on the bank of Sharavathi backwater.  Surrounding shops indicate that, it’s losing its natural glory. There are many development projects underway.  Paid darshana to Sri Choudeshwari Maate headed towards ferry ride in Sharavathi backwater.
We decided to have a small in ferry ride across backwater from Sigandoor to Holebagilu. The vehicles were in a long queue, luckily, ferry was loaded with passenger and vehicles. Somewhat got a place to stand and enjoy the ride.

Sumukh (my son) was scared initially, after a while enjoyed the journey.  Spent sometime in the ferry at Holebagilu and back in the same drive to Sigandoor. Before dark reached home safely.
