A weekend..

…to be happy about.

After a long long time, went on a trek on Saturday. Drove down to a village called Basavanagiri (or something like that), a couple of kilometers before Ramnagaram, with three other office colleagues. Trekked up one of the bigger hills in that area. Not too strenuous (hindsight, as they say :-)), but was great fun. Blissful view from the top of the hill. Took obligatory pics, and then sacked there for an hour or so, discussing globalization, supply chains, “arrived bangalore”, “poised india”, and a load of nonsense along those lines. We were back at the foot of the hill by 11:30 or so, and proceeded to the Kamath restaurant a little past Ramanagaram, where we binged out on some great food, and fantastic sugarcane juice. Back home by 2:30 PM or so. A great half day!

…Similar outing yesterday, to Nandi Hills. Only difference – with family. Much less strenuous, but equally good fun. First time I had been to Nandi hills, great place really, a pity I hadn’t gone there so long. I think it’s going to be one “must visit” place the next time any of my cousins land up in town.

  1. How long does it take to get to Nandi hills, and what are the crowds there like?

    • Took a little over 2 hours (driving down) from my place. Since it was a Sunday, it was a little crowded, but not too much. Mostly youngsters, some married couples – picnicking, walking around. There’s a temple at the top, so there are some of the religious minded around as well. We didn’t trek up, btw (not sure if anybody does). There’s a motorable road all the way up.
