Tripoto

Due to summer we were getting bored staying back at home, so in order to beat the heat three friends decided to hit the nearest hill station from Bangaluru that is Yelagiri hills. It is also a one day getaway from Chennai.

This is 2nd time I visited Yelagiri Hills but was sad to find the place dry. Upon reaching top the climate was cool with comparatively much greenery.
