After enjoying the views from the boulder, we started our journey back to the home stay from where we had to go back Bangalore. The trek back to our bikes took another 1 hour and on the way a 12 ft python crossed our path which made us shit scared but well what's a trip without a little excitement. Our guide made sure we were safe all the time and took extreme caution in taking paths which were safe.
How to reach:
Bisle is a small village about 250 km from Bangalore and is at the edge of Bisle Forest Reserve. The forest is extremely lush and could turn scary in a matter of minutes after dusk.
Google is the best guide for reaching Bisle ghat.
After reaching you need to know some locals for the trek. For the viewpoint however, you can take the road leading into the reserve and after covering about 10 km you can see the gates leading to the viewpoint.
Things to be careful of:
Don't wander in the forest reserve after dusk. The locals also strictly advised us against wandering outside post dusk. One of the reasons is wild animals. While other reasons revolve around local stories of how people vanished in the forest reserve.
Carry your trekking shoes. Forclaz 100 was my choice but any trekking shoe should suffice. The trek is long enough to cause discomfort if you are wearing sandals or slippers.
