A crazy idea of riding our motorcycles from one Hill Station to the other during the winter.
We planned this trip for about a couple of months and the final route map looked like this - Bangalore to Ooty, Ooty to Munnar, Munnar to Kodaikanal, Kodaikanal to Yercaud and finally returning home to Bangalore.
Over 1000 kms of pure motorcycling of which over 400 kms were in the hills alone. This ride was exhilarating and surreal.
I knew I love the hills and the cold weather. But never could make up my mind when it came picking one Hill Station over another.
All these hill towns have their own charm.
We started Day 1 with a ride from Bangalore to Ooty.
Route - Mysore - Gundlupet - Bandipur - Masinagudi and finally Hullathy ( a small village near Ooty)
The ride through the jungles of Bandipur was brilliant. With the fall season the jungle was slowly getting barren.
We reached our destination by the evening, with a bit of off-roading involved the whole ride was a great way to start this 8 day long road trip which would include riding ( ofcourse ), trekking, some farming and lots of relaxing.
We stayed at the Wild Walkers a beautiful place about 30 mins from Ooty ( the main town was expected to be super crowded coz of the holiday season ).
The next two days at this property was unbelievable. We literally woke up above the clouds. The sun shining down during the cold winter mornings and the camp fires which kept us warm in the evenings. We had a great the property, trekking up different peaks and farming potatoes and carrots in their estate.
