Kodachadri peak 120kms from the town of Shimoga is a paradise for off road bikers as there is a 4X4 jeep route till the temple. Amazing off roading route for bikers.
We started on Friday morning around 5 am from Hyderabad. The very first greeting from nature's side was a heavy downpour slowing down our pace in our tightly packed schedule but made the rest of the day's heat bearable. Cruizing through the "so called" shate highways of Karnataka, from Mahbubnagar - Raichur - Hospet - Harpanhalli, 500 kms was the max we could manage on the first day.
After a late start to second day, the hilly route in the western ghats and the "highways" of Karnataka we reached the base of Kodachadri at around 3.30 pm. This was the first time I was taking my bike off the road, still did good compared to Vishwam Anna, all credit goes to gigantic hulk ofcourse. The amazing weather at the top of Kodachadri, the night camp. And then the continous 24 hour ride back to Hyderabad added flavours of state "highways" of Karnataka. Who says biking is not an adventure, this definitely was one hell of an adventure :D.
PS : the Davengere benne dosa made it all for the 24 hours bike ride.
