Didupe falls in the western ghats.

A peaceful village,at a distance of approx. 300 kms from Bangalore.

I started from Bangalore in the afternoon and reached Didupe around 9 pm.

Day 1 was a tiring day as I got stuck in rains and rode for around 50 kms of Charmadi ghat region in heavy rains.

And after riding for 300 kms I wanted to just get into my tent and sleep off.
