We were heading towards Mullayanagiri which was around 20 Kms from our hotel. On our way, we encountered some lovely curves on the road, breath taking views, endless trails in the forest, water dripping from the rocks, some curious monkeys and for the icing on the cake, the amazing weather. To our surprise, the place was very less crowded even on an extended weekend holiday.Camera not doing any justice to the view

After the breakfast, zipped through towards Hassan. 4 lane empty highway with barely any traffic ensured I munched miles pretty quickly. Hassan Chikmagalur is a single lane road with plenty of curves. It has some nasty humps and passes by many lakes. This stretch was carefully negotiated to reach Chikmagalur where we are greeted with the lovely sight of the hills. Made my way quickly to Town Canteen, Chikmagalur. This restaurant is famous for Masala Dose. Hogged properly as i would be skipping lunch and spend the next three hours in the hills.
