In Chikmagalur, we got a chance to have luscious chicken curry, poha, and freshly brewed coffee as a gift from the locals; we played like children outside the home, had fun with pets, smelled flowers, and enjoyed a very slow but meaningful lifestyle during mornings and evenings - in between, it was all about exploring the place and inner selves.
It was a four day trip to Chikmagalur. In the initial three days, We had already taken a dip in Hebbe Falls, felt the drips and drops of water jumping from the rocks; had seen the cotton-like soft sheet covering the hills from the Mullayanagiri Peak; watched and analysed coffee history and making process; witnessed the heavenly views of reserved forests, meadows, wildlife, and the enormous landscapes alternating one after another on Kudremukh Trek. Everything turned out to be more than our expectations. The beauty was endlessly peaceful and relieving.
Everything was almost covered, but as we were returning on the last day, we saw this board directing us to the Z-point. It was yet 6 hours for our return bus, and the thought of covering this point tickled somewhere in our stomachs - ALL OF OURS. Finally, when one restless fellow demanded it, we all JOYFULLY agreed.
