#BengaluruIndha, for a typical bangalorean, favorite weekend destination during post monsoon period could be a visit to coorg or chickmagalur. these places are at its best post monsoon, decked up with fresh green coat,added by small drops of water which seems like they are sprinkled all day on them, aided with chill breeze and near to full capacity waterfalls ; and hence i had my eyes this time on Mallali waterfalls !!!! and after some quite a research on places to stay nearby, i zeroed in on Ayatana resort for their distance from mallali waterfalls ( 2 km ), a decent abbi falls alike private waterfalls at the resort and to its ambiance, the feel of it from the pics and reviews on the same,though its on the higher side on the price scale, i wanted to give it a try and booked for an overnight stay 3 weeks before my travel date.
Unfortunately," monsoon" ,which was almost getting to over, picked up at 5th gear and it started to pour nonstop from Maharashtra to Kerala. The rains did cause havoc and i was constantly following up the news for updates to cancel or postpone my trip, and the day before the trip i called up the resort and checked with them on the conditions over there and he gave me a heads up with tagline of "drizzle all day", nonetheless he also provided me with route update to the resort to avoid any water logging .
