We started our journey in a fine Saturday morning by train considering it to be my most favorite way of transport and keeping budget in mind too. You will get general tickets though where seats are not reserved and works in a first come first serve basis. Luckily, we got a compartment and took our seats quickly.
It's only a 6 hours journey so we reached there by 1. From station we hired a tempo to reach Chikmagalur main town. We all wanted to hire bikes there so that we won't have to look for tempos as it won't be convenient all the time. And yes they do demand big bucks sometime. So be little careful in bargaining.
Unfortunately, there were no bike rental stores there unlike Goa. Just then we met few people in bus stand who informed us about their friend who rents his bikes.They called him and we got our bikes. Happiest moment!
Then we went straight towards the hills thinking we must take the resort in some good location. And it came out to be our best decision coz there is no point staying in town where there is nothing much to see.
The climate was moderate and slightly cooler than Bangalore as bangalore was witnessing it's summer time.
It was a very short trip of only 1 night stay but we did enjoy a lot. The trip was mostly about taking rides, roaming, laughing, wandering, enjoying the foods and enjoying the best of nature. The sunset of this place was way more awesome.
I'd recommend everyone to visit the place at least once as it has become one of my favourite weekend destination now.
Keeping travelling! :)
