Last month I went to Rupin Pass. It was magical, I was spellbound by the landscape I saw around. Hard to fathom such places are there in India. And after coming back from it I would still keep day-dreaming about it. There's so much to see and explore in our very own backyard.
A photography cum bike ride to Somanathapura and Talakadu was what went next on my list. Organised by the Bangalore Trekking Club this was a 1-day weekend bike ride to these places. I would be the pillion with Nitesh on this one. Situated on the banks of river Cauvery Somanathapura is situated near to Mysuru. On a dark, cold early morning we all assembled on the Kanakpura road. The ride on the Kanakpura road is on 2-lane highway, pristine and mostly traffic free. The endless green fields on both sides adds to the charm even more. Riding on such a stretch is an experience you can only feel by being there, albeit I was to be destined as a pillion throughout.
