As i had heard about this perfect week end get away which is located in Hosur taluk,in one of the bikenomads meet went ahead . The place got its name from the hill appearing as the trident weapon or trishul of Lord Shiva and hence it is  known as Shoolagiri (shoola – trident, giri – hill).Asking the villager we got the way to the dam . Both of us discussed of our school days & fun time we had spent in hirakud dam area . Dark clouds in the horizon . We bid au revoir to this serene place .

Tataguni Roerich Estate

Bike trip to Tataguni Roerich Estate

Man & Bike: Samaresh Biswal & Bajaj CT 100

Total distance: 174 Km

No of days: 1

Expense: Priceless

Place Visited: Tataguni Roerich Estate

Camera: Nokia E 63

Album Link:https://picasaweb.google.com/samareshbiswal/TataguniRoerichEstate#

Route: Bangalore-kanakpura highway

Highway: NH 209

Riders ride, but its not always have to be on road. Sometimes, a riders heart can take pleasure form just a 10 minutes ride on a nice chilly ride with the red sun shining in the eastern horizon and sometimes, its just in the company of some historical moments that will lead to some kind of redemption to the daily tired soul.

I not only go out when my riders soul tell me to ride, but at times, even my empty stomach says, lets go for a ride and have something to enjoy (actually was too lazy to cook). I left home for Hotel Vasu, one of my favourite food joint on the kanakpura Road. But by the time I reached, except for the delicious smell, nothing else was having a place to rest and eat there. So I decided to parcel vangi bhath and decided to simply return. However, as I have interest on any past history with little colours in it, Tataguni Estate was one o such property with disputed history and landscape. I had a faint recollection of the painter (Svetoslav Roerich)and his beloved wife(Devika Rani). Though the property is sealed by the order of the Supreme Court, one can always rely on Karnataka Police’s honesty to get a preview for some bucks. Its huge and a beautiful estate. I decided to have my lunch beside a lake in the company of the cranes and nature’s silence. By the look of it, it has been very well maintained. I was interested in visiting the studio, but the govt seal was too strong to break. There is an oil extracting plant which is also shut down. But above all, one can always drink and bask upon the serene beautiful and pristine environment of the estate and help himself to get some redemption.

Bike Trip to Wayanad

Man & Machine: Samaresh Biwal & Bajaj CT 100

Total distance: 907 Km

Expense: Rs 1449 (petrol Rs 800, dormitory Rs 270, food Rs 379)

No of days: 3

Places visited: Edakkal caves, Banasura Sagar dam, Chembra peak, Soochipara waterfalls, Kuruva Island.

Highway: SH 17 – NH 212

Album link: http://picasaweb.google.com/samareshbiswal/Wayanad#

Route: Bangalore – Mysore – Nanjangudu – Begur – Gundlupet – Maddur –     Sultan Bathery – Kalpetta – Mananthavady

Stardate: [-28] 02895.00: The wild soul in me made me to pack my backpack & I went on a solo trip to explore the land of paddy (Wayanad). I left my home at dawn & hit the Mysore express way. The bike zoomed at 90 Ks & the wind was whisking my ears. I took a bypass road at Srirangapatnam town in order to avoid the city traffic. As soon as I crossed gundelpet, the thick forest of Western Ghats took over the roadside & the feeling of Late Veerappan invoked into my mind. I crossed the Karnataka border check post and the real pleasure of riding was felt amongst the bandipur forest reserve. My eyes searched for any wild life, but alas! I crossed in to Kerala border & soon I learned that always give way to KSRTC bus as the oxymoron bus driver won’t bother giving you a kick if u won’t give them pass. But riding in the Ghats was real pleasure for a city rider like me. Had a late breakfast in sultan bathery & went on to see the edakal caves which is situated 14 km from the town. In order to reach to the top of caves I had to walk some fair distance & the sign of aging was surely coming off as I was gasping for air. Thus sat there for few min to catch my breath & then went on to explore the caves. It’s basically 3 boulders stacked on top of each other. Inside, one can find the caves carved with a lot of pictograms. Had a rollercoaster ride while coming down on a hired jeep.  Refueled myself & went to see banasura sagara dam in the evening which is a small hydel project. With the sun setting down in the backdrop, I went on a high speed boat cruise while sipping on to chilled beer which was an awesome experience. Dead tired from the whole day’s excursion, I found myself a clean dormitory, freshened up & went for an early scrumptious meal of Kerala paratha , spicy beef curry & meen fry. At the end of the day, one cannot complain about nice road, nicer weather & even nicer food. What more can I wish for!!

Samaresh @ Bandipur

Samaresh @ Edakkal cave

Samaresh @ banasura Dam

Stardate: [-28] 02900.00: Woke up early & went for a jog in a tea estate. I was overwhelmed by the chilled freshness of the air which I had been missing for a long time. Had an authentic Kerala breakfast of appam & coffee. Decided to see the chembra peak and I rode my bike to the base of the peak. It’s a 2 hr trek to the highest peak in western ghat but mid way my aging body gave up. Even though my mighty heart made me go for few metres more, but surely body took over my heart & I backed up. To make me feel good, I chatted up with the plantation workers and left the place for soochipara waterfall. Once again I had to do bit of trekking but it was worth the effort. Spent quite a bit of the afternoon under the water playing with the cool & reverting back to my childhood days. After the child in me said enough, I left for Kurava Island. It’s a small island next to Kabini River but crossing through the river to reach the island was a thrilling experience, rather fearful to be honest. I had my authentic Kerala lunch in a small hut hotel and it was one of my best lunches I had on the highway. I thanked the lady for preparing such yummy foods. Rode leisurely in the spiraling ghat roads and by the time I realized, I was already in thealassery. Asked the local about the route to reach kalpetta .Reached the dorm & went to have my early diner of Kerala paratha, meen curry & beef kabab. God’s own country satisfied a diehard biker in me.

Stardate: [-28] 02905.00: woke up early and went for a brisk walk in the valley. I had some putttu & coffee as breakfast. As the time came to leave this beautiful serene place I felt a bit nostalgic. But as a biker thousands of towns will beckon & thousands of miles will say me goodbye, but the ride must go on. I reached my home early evening .with the words of Richard Bach echoing in my ear “In the miles & sand& years, we have learned only a little about ourselves ………., we find our answer to the question of the journey. Four words. It was worth it.”

Lastly thanks to my biker friends who provided all the necessary trip info.

It’s been such a long time I haven’t been on a backpacking ride, so decided to check out the beautiful manjarabad fort situated in the small coffee estate town of shakelespur. Though I have crossed the town many times but never had a stopover. So packed my back & catch the Govt bus. I told the conductor to drop me near the fort. As I reached I asked the tea vendor the route towards the fort, he instructed me the path. As soon I reached the top of the fort it’s a WOW feeling it’s the most beautiful fort built by Tipu sultan. This fort is constructed 1792 AD .The fort being always covered by mist & commanding views of the landscape was named manjarabad by Tipu .On the return journey I had taken a lift on an overloaded iron ore truck, it was the thrilling roller coaster ride of my life.

As soon as the alarm clock buzzed, I got ready & @ 4.10 AM I left home. On my way towards Vellore & was surprised the electronic city flyover is complete & I was zipping @ 80 Km .On reaching the border  I got the real feeling of riding in the highway & for the 1st time I touched 85Km  in my bike on NH 46. This stretch of road I think is one of the most beautiful with flowers in full bloom. Refuel myself at krishnagiri BPCL dhaba. Reached Vellore early morning & asked for the direction towards fort. As I reached I was captivated by the perfect specimen of military architecture. The fort is well maintained & inside there is a temple, church & mosque. 1st I went 2 c the Jalakantesvara temple the architecture is of vijayanaga style build around 1566 & awestruck by the intricate work done on the stone pillars .Then I went 2 see the ST john church built around 1846 AD ,from there I asked   the way towards cemetery . As I prayed for the departed soul who were killed while gallantly defending the garrison .With tears rolling in my eyes with the random question coming in my mind which side of the coin am I, should I be happy that we are independent now or should be sad for the soldiers who died with the belief of protecting, the turf of his majestic Queen Victoria the Empress of India .I called up Mahesh that I am in town &  he told  me to come directly to campus ,as soon I reached I was mesmerized by the sprawling campus of VIT .He showed me around the whole campus & also went to see preparation that was going on for  the college fest Riviera the students were  performing as like professional dancer . Had my scrumptious lunch at the cafeteria & Mahesh gifted me a VIT college fest T-shirt, I left the campus late afternoon for my way back to home .With the memories of meeting an old friend & praying for the fallen comrade. In short a day well spent.

Bike trip to Chitradurga Fort, Chandravalli Caves & Vani Vilas Sagar Dam

Bike trip to Chitradurga Fort, Chandravalli Caves & Vani Vilas Sagar Dam

Route: Bangalore -> Tumkur -> Sira -> Hiryur -> Chitradurga.

Highway: NH 4

Total distance: 487 km

As unusual as it seems, a bang in my head, & I was awaken at 4 am. And as bolt would strike, I just picked my jacket & went for a short ride. Its 5 AM. In order to get rid of the numbness in my hand, I stopped near a check post 2 warm up a bit. After that I asked a fellow truck driver “Which place it is?” & then I realized that I have already reached Tumkur & then called up my friend Samba to check out any place worth visiting nearby. I noted down whatever he mumbled & headed to Chitradurga district which was just about 200 km from Bangalore. With the adventure spirit riding high on my head & the road inviting my soul, I just kick started my butt. The road is four laned & awesome. With the morning wind blazing my ear & the drive as smooth as silk, soon I reached the town of Chitradurga. As far as the eyes can see there were windmills. It’s great to know that few places in India have taken initiative in generating green energy. I headed toward the fort. It’s also known as Elu Sutthina Kote (which means fort with seven circumambulation) as it comprises a series of seven enclosure walls. Legends have it that Chitradurga featured in the epic Mahabharata, where a man-eating giant named Hidimbasura lived here. When the Pandavas were in this place in the course of their exile, Bhima fought Hidambasura with the huge boulders around as arsenal, and Hidambasura was killed in the fight. After trying nth no. of times to reach the top of the fort by the stairs that seems to lead to the top, every single time I was surprised to see all of them ending at a wall. Hats off to the architects of the fort. I was drop dead tired by the mid-afternoon. I rested for few moments in the shadow of the wall to catch some breath & called it a quit & a promise to the fort to that it will see me again & this time, I will conquer it. After having my lunch I headed towards the Chandravalli caves which are definitely worth visiting (especially for u couples). There is a nice lake and in some caves here, one can see carvings and other structures created since 3 B.C. when Buddhist monks settled here. After spending few hours I left towards vanivillas sagar dam. It’s situated on the highway on my way back home. After 1st toll gate, it’s a 12km straight highway until you reach a big arch on the right side. From there, the dam is around 20 km. The dam is built in the saracenic style and is considered an engineering marvel. Built by the Maharaja of Mysore Sri Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV built across the river Vedavathi. There is a place standing on the steps one can hear echo so I just stood there & shouted D****  & Voila! I could hear it seven times. I saw the sun setting down & the place reminded me of my home town. Late evening, I returned home having a great feeling of a day worth spending in getting to see one of the lesser known treasures of Karnataka. Chitradurga is definitely a place worth visiting. 🙂  🙂 🙂

Bike trip to Antharganga ,Koti Lingeshwara,Bangaru tirupati

Bike trip to Antharganga ,koti Lingeshwara,bangaru tirupati

Participant & bike: Samaresh Biswal & Bajaj CT 100

Trip stats:

Stardate: [-28] 01985.00

Distance covered: 271

Day: 1

Route: Bengaluru – kr puram – Hoskote – Kolar junction – Antharganga –  Bangarapet –  Koti lingeshwara  -Bethamangala – Bangaru  Tirupati  – Mulbagal – Kolar- Hoskote – Bengaluru

Highway: NH 4, SH 5

Places visited: Antharganga, Koti Lingeshwara temple, Bangaru tirupati

It’s been long when my adventure spirit had gone on for some adventure. So just searched on Google & set my bike for a spin, but this time, a spiritual one, towards Kolar Gold Field. The road is familiar. With the Sun still under its blanket, I was out of city. The chilly wind kept blazing my face but it’s just got sweeter with time until I recharged myself with a sumptuous breakfast at Kamath Upahaar. Soon I reached Kolar junction headed right 2wards Antharganga aiming the hilltop as the destination (has 2 climb around 100 steps as if mornings exercise). But the exercise was worth taking. The top view was breath taking & the mental peace that I had was indescribable. It’s a temple on top of hill & with a Nandi (Lord Shiva’s Vaahan) 4m which water is flowing into a small pond that is so inviting for 4 a dip. Sat there 4 few min & left for koti lingeswara temple (of course needed help regarding roads). The drive through country roads was beautiful, fields covered with blooming marigolds. As soon I reached the place, one could see a shiv ling everywhere the eye can see. The temple has a huge shiv ling & below it are innumerable lings of different sizes. Had my pooja in the temple & I left towards bangaru tirupati riding through the paddy field which was anything but awe inspiring. It’s a venkateshwara temple & the darshan is only through a small window. I headed back towards mulbagal & the drive was accompanied with back pain. But as soon I reached the highway the drive was gr8 had my sumptuous lunch @ kamath upahar then head 2wards home reached home in the evening completely rejuvenated

Samaresh: The Lalbagh Botanical Garden, Bangalore is of royal origin and was started initially as a private garden in an area of 40 acres by Hyder Ali, one of the most famous rulers of old Mysore in 1760. Initially designed in Mughal style, on the model of an extensive garden at Sira in Tumkur near Bangalore, this garden was further developed by Hyder Ali’s son Tipu Sultan Today, nearly 673 genera and 1,854 species of plants are found in Lalbagh. Of the many artistic structures in Lalbagh, the Glass House is the most famous. It’s in the form of a diamond.

Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.(Anne Frank)
