We left early (6am) from Bangalore to reach chikamanglur on time. We did reach on time (11am). On the way we only took a breakfast break for 30-45 minutes. After reaching chikamanglur it took us 6 hours to reach to our accommodation Thanks to Google maps ???? and that's the part which made this trip unforgettable.
We lost our way, no phone signals, circling around same areas again and again, fuel about to end, lost all alone in the jungle area hundreds of foot above the ground. Just then saw a house with owner standing outside the house talking on phone, only issue was he did not understand our language nor we were able to understand what he was saying. But he understood we were in trouble and needed help. I made a call from his mobile to the owner of the homestay where we were supposed to reach by 1pm. He actually came searching for us and then finally we reached to the Home stay.
A lot of fun time was lost already we all were kinda disappointed but then the homestay people tried their best to make it a good trip for us. They prepared yummy home food, with Special chikamanglur coffee in the end. After that he took us for a night trekking which was adventurous and fun.
The place was so silent and peaceful. We enjoyed the bon fire and star gazing and a small walk in the jungle at night. It was a very new and awesome experience for us.
