As usual planning start at friday night with my friend shiva to trek this asia's largest monolithic rock mountain. As it is start of the monsoon, there is a mild rain by friday night itself.
This Bangalore climate is making us to fall in love with it and not allow us to wake up early. So I setup the alarm by morning 4.30 am and slept. Somewhere from my sleep i felt that the alarm not waking up us. Then i checked my mobile and it is 6.30 am. Then only i came to realize that alarm is turned on from monday to friday only. Slowly walked out of my room and felt the chillness and little drizzling of this wonderful morning. Then a quick checkout of my whatsapp messages and fb feeds for next 10mins and made shiva to wake up from his dream. He is in oscillation to take up this trip or not and finally convinced him to start our trip.
Done a very quick refreshment and got ready by 7.30 am and decided to finish our breakfast at marathahalli itself. After all we braced up in our pulsar 150cc and started our map app to navigate to this monsoon paradise "Savanadurga". We searched in map for "Savanadurga trek trail" and started around 8.20 am from Marathahalli.
Shiva is driving and i am enjoying the ride with him and planned to reach the destination around 10am. We have to ride about 78km to reach the trek trail. Route is as same as the google map suggested and you can blindly follow on it.
There is one toll for Rs.55(kanapura rd.toll) and joined Nice ring road.
