'Gandikota ?!?!?!!? What is that'.
This was the first reaction my wife put across when I told her of a weekend trek I had booked. 'You know I will not be able to click Ganesh Chaturthi images in Mumbai because of your stupid idea'.
My initial excitement turned into a small shrill of despair as I realized it was Ganesha chaturthi weekend that I had booked this trek for. 'Incoming religious stares' I thought. None the less, we both decided to go ahead with it.
A friend also decided to join us at last minute making us feel less guilty of missing out on Ganesha Chaturthi celebrations (distribution of the burden)
We booked our trek through a fantastic group called - Travel Trikon. Though the trek and journey is self manageable, the overall experience suggested by them was something which led us to book this trek. (PS: Please note I am not affiliated to Travel Trikon or any other travel groups and this is not a promotional post...though I would consider this an honor if this is considered as one).
So on Saturday evening we boarded the Chennaaiii Expressss....ahem... Chennai Express from Pune station for an overnight journey towards Muddanuru Station
