Chikamagalur, located 250 kilometers away from Bengaluru is a gateway to the western ghats and is home to Mullayanagiri - the highest peak of Karnataka. Driving a motorcycle to these ranges will have a place on every travel enthusiast's bucket list. I drove to Baba Budangiri which leads to two other places - Gaalikere and Manikyadhara falls , Mullayyanagiri and Ayyana Kere from Bengaluru . My ride was Pulsar 200rs which was a delight to drive. The drive circuit involved everything super fast four lane highway from Bangalore to Hassan, Curvy road from Hassan to Chikmagalur, winding roads leading to Mullayyanagiri and Bababudangiri, Slippery Mud tracks leading to spots which provide great vistas, broad two lane highway lined with trees providing much needed shade.
