I know you people have seen humans riding horse,elephant even ostrich . But have seen a monkey riding a lady. yes a monkey!

few months back me and my husband decided to visit big banyan tree also known as Dodda Aladha Mara in Bangalore. there were lot of monkeys hanging and playing around the big banana tree. I was carrying a small backpack on my shoulders and kept my hair open. We were roaming around the tree and clicking photos and then suddenly a monkey jumped over me holding my hair like a lead rope (rope used to lead an animal such as a horse) siting on my backpack. I was screaming a running around the park, my husband running behind to save me and that notorious monkey was enjoying the ride. And yes that day people around witnessed a monkey riding a woman.

Apart from this scary encounter Dodda Aladha Mara is beautiful. The Banyan tree is 400 year old and well maintained, it is a half day trip from Bangalore at a little divergence from Mysore route.

we came on a bike but there are frequent BMTC buses too for proper connectivity.
