Karnataka means "Pleasant to hear",which may be true but I can certainly vouch that it is definitely pleasant to explore.
So before we begin let me give you the major destinations covered in our road trip of 7 days.
Route: Bengaluru-Mysore-Bandipur Forest-Madikeri-Chikmaglur-Murudeshwar/Gokarna-Hampi-Bengaluru.
So Let's begin:
My name is Dhruvan Dalwadi and I am from Ahmedabad,Gujarat. This is my first attempt to write a travel blog. I have started to explore travelling since last two years. And my New Year resolution is to travel one state in each quarter, I guess Corona didn't liked my resolution plan.
Anyway talking about the Road trip, It was planned by me and my friend Toshaj Oza. We hired two bike from a Bike Rental Company (Royal Brothers) from Bengaluru. We booked our flights and bike in advance and we decided to book our stay a day before reaching our destination so that if anything goes not as planned we won't suffer any loss.
We had a flight from Ahmedabad to Bengaluru on 8th February 2020 and we reached Bengaluru at around 11:30 pm. We stayed in a hotel in Marathahalli area as it was near the bike rental company from where we had to pick our bikes in morning.
We took our bikes at around 9 am, filled the gas tank and started our journey. Our first destination was Mysore: A Cultural Capital of Karnataka. We took the National Highway 44 from Bengaluru. The highway was smooth as silk. The traffic was quite moderate but someone can easily cruise at a speed of 100-110 kmph. So we both were on our bikes, i.e Toshaj took KTM Duke-200cc and I rode Hero Xpulse-200cc. It was a first Bike Trip for Toshaj and second for me. We reach Mysore around 3 o'clock in the noon. We checked into the hotel,freshened up a bit and went on to explore the royal aesthetics of Mysore.
