With the monsoons around I was too tempted to head on to a road trip. The dark clouds, cool breeze and the drizzle forced me to get out and hit the road. I decided to go to Lepakshi as it was one of the closest places to Bangalore, around 120 Kms.
It was a Saturday morning. I left home by 8 45 am hoping to reach there by 10 30 am. The route is B'lore-Hyderabad Highway until you reach Kodikonda. Take a left onto the Lepakshi Road and you should reach your destination. Total payable toll is Rs.250/-
The drive is good with well maintained roads. You can drive easily at 80-100 KMPH. The journey is quite scenic with hills on your left and vast open land to your right. I stopped at Sagar Delicacy for Breakfast around 9 45 am.
