The magnificient view @Tala Kaveri πŸ˜‰ The fog was so dense when we were going uphill that for a brief while, visibility was less than 5-6 metres. The one thing I never understand about the sources of these rivers is where do the rivers disappear after they begin? I mean, there’s nothing there, not even a stream. So, why exactly is that spot the origin of the Kaveri? I remember when I had gone to Nasik a long time ago, nearabouts where the Godavari is said to originate, there was no way to understand the logic of that origin either.

Anyway, who cares. It’s high enough, and in a less touristy age, it must have been spiritual enough.

  1. the river has flowed down silly … thats why the source is empty … if you go downstream you will see the water πŸ™‚

  2. I see you visited the monastery too πŸ™‚


    Just came back from Hampi – it was awesome too πŸ™‚

  3. glad to see you are travelling…Karnataka is such a beautiful state, with hill and water…and of course, beaches and sea too, if you feel like them! Hampi, Badami, Aihole, Belur, Halebeedu…all are amazing…you will find that you have great weekend getaways!

    • Yes, me glad too. But I think that’s about the travelling for the time being πŸ™‚ Belur, Halebid, I have been to. But hope to see some of those other places in the not so distant future.
