Every semester break I'm usually shipped off to my grandmother's house located in this small village called Megaravalli. We end up spending all our time visiting relatives. This time though I took a couple of friends to help me explore my Native.
Megaravalli is located in Shimoga district,Karnataka. The closest town is Thirthahalli. Although very small, it is easily accessible since NH-13 passes through it. It lies in the Malnad region which is known for its high rainfall and beautiful greenery.
We took a night bus from Bangalore . There are numerous state run buses and private buses that ply to both Thirthahalli and Agumbe. We reached at around 6 am and there was a slight drizzle. Luckily for us my grandmoms's house is 100 meters from the bus stop.
We were welcomed with some hot filter coffee and our staple breakfast of Akki Rotti( A South Indian Rice pancake). After a quick afternoon nap we were off to explore.
