Royal Knight's Leisure Ride to Kollegal

Date: 6th Dec 2009
Ride Starting Time: 6:00 am 
Destination: Kollegal (Gaganchukki, Barachukki waterfalls)
Distance from Bangalore:140kms
Starting Point: Raheja Arcade, Koramangala 7th Block. ( Near Forum Mc Donald End)

We Started from the Meeting point and soon hit Kanakpura road on the way to Shivanasamundra. 

The Shivanasamudra Falls is on the Kaveri River after the river has wound its way through the rocks and ravines of the Deccan Plateauand drops off to form waterfalls. The Falls are the second biggest fall in India.

We stopped on the way to devour our morning hungryness by Idli and Maddur Vadas in a small eatery.
We reached Barachukki waterfall around 10Am. We traced ourselves downhill to reach the foot pond of waterfall.
We negotiated with a coracle baotman to swirl us near the main fall. The ride was misty and amazing. The View from the Other side always looked better. 

Fresh Fishes were being fried for a mere 15bucks. I couldnot stop myself for having one. 

After reaching top our next stop was Ajay's FarmHouse which was just next to River Kaveri. IT was a lovely quite and serene place, flocked by white storks and common terns.

The Maize was harvested already not as quick as famville though. We had our quick lunch followed by a rest due to my Flat BackTyre.
Once we rolled again we were welcomed by a lovley sunset. Soon I had the darkest evening and bike driving was becoming tough in that black moon.

Objects in the rear view mirror disappeared immediately.We soon met at Metro on the entrance of bangalore before signing off.
A lovely Ride.
