I and a few of my friends have planned to go to Hogenakkal Waterfalls which has been slipping for many weeks now. Finally, we thought today was the day but unfortunately, a friend dropped off due to some emergency. So the slipping continued. But being a Program Manager, it would be a failure to not have a plan B :P, so I made another plan yesterday evening as soon as I came to know about my friend’s emergency.
I have a weird habit of marking places on my map and tag them as “want to go” if I found them interesting enough. So I went through my map lists and found that “Chunchi Falls” was around 80Kms. My eyes were caught by a huge water body in the upstream of the waterfall. That was the “Haro Bele Dam”. Since I was planning to start early in the morning, so I thought a Hilltop for sunrise would be perfect, and another close look at the nearby places, I found “Bilikal Rangaswamy Betta(BRB)”.
And my planning was done.
Sunrise at BRB, Ride to Haro Bele Dam, spend some time at Chunchi Falls and be back to Bangalore by afternoon.
but fate had other plans and I slept off without setting an alarm for the early morning.
Luckily, I woke up at 7:30 AM. I somehow managed to get ready and left by 8 AM.
First stop was Chunchi Falls(I chucked BRB since it was already sunny by the time I left Bangalore), a secluded waterfall set amidst rocks. While the route presented by Google was accurate until the parking lot, people were all over the place thereafter.
