makedattu trip

hi friends this time around we reached the place. i was honestly speaking , looking for a water filled cool place surrounded by treees , and ambience to envy. Had it not been for the sun , it would have been worth a visit, but i still dont believe the number of people flocking the place . Well leave that , really no mood to go through the agony. here is last of my trips , one of few . i rememeber not for so good reasons

Makedattu Bus Trip

Now this is a sincere request to all people please do not take these pics as the fun we had. These pics will actually deceive all of you to believe that we had a very very good time in makedattu. but mark my words, you will not like to be in the situation we were. After coming out from warm water, and legs stuck with sand on the ground burning as a hot iron utensil kept on gas. Most smiles in most of the pics in this trip are due to that magical word which is said before taking pics -- CHEESE ....

The fare of the bus to move from Sangam to Makedattu hardly 4 Kms was too high, and i was thinking only my company buses are cutting the pockets. you will see a few pics of first class road connecting makedattu to sangam.
Above are grandpa and grandmom of vipul , who showered love on all of us , and we really had a great time with them. Started to live a life for the brief time they were in bangalore. We had a great time. Really somethings just can't be expressed in words , and this is one such feeling. Just a void when they left to delhi with vipul.

These are wild animals left open in the bus. From left , Ashish , Vipul , ever smiling (coolest of them all) sameer , and yes .. dumbest of them all ... Meee... At this point we are sitting in fooly AC bus , with world class shockers .. till date holding it in hands . Below are two pics of the wonderful connecting road .

Above pic is the evidence of the route , which was most of the times bumpy and got dangerous at places. With sun burning us , this bus ride was hot and humid.
Above pic was probably the best stretch of road. well , since blog was dedicated to bus ride between sangam and final destination, i will take a leave , and come back with makedattu experiences soon .. :)

After Chunchi falls we went to Sangam , which seemed to be full of water , fun and joy. but our destination was makedattu. So we decided we will make a move and not stop here , but then we came to know that to go to makedattu , we need to cross the river and go to other side to catch a bus and go afead. the water which seemed to be very inviting , was warm , and not so happening. Then we had to take off the shoes and this was worst part as the sand on the banks was dirty and very very hot , and stones were like red hot. Still there was a lot more to come. and we decided to play in water for a later time ( which eventually will be the climax to the otherwise dull and lifeless trip). In the picture below, i tried and succedeed to dig my legs atleast a foot in sand.

In the Picture below, we are still not going in water and decide to move into it at a later stage . Here is Me in yellow, sameer in green and Vipul in white. and behind us is Sangam

Sangama is the confluence of two rivers – Arkavathi and Kaveri(Cauvery), but this can be enjoyed most in times of rains when these rivers flourish in water. April May is certainly not the time for the same , but yes in case you wanna take revenge from any your friends, this is the best time to guide them and get them sun tanned , and baked in hot sun. If that is not enough , they will not see any modern or urban areas for 80Km radius , and in just case something happens, there can not be any assistance for a long time. There were a lot of other pictures also taken at the occassion but i really dont have courage to revive the memories of the same, so guys , please pardon me for not posting other pics here. But yes , next makedattu is right there on the cards.
