These places are definitive week end trips. Good work Sha. We can keep these on our list for future trails to explore in the coming months. I am sure Khan must be very pleased right now.

Hi Sha,
we camped atop Kudachadri last year and it was fun.I wouldn't call it a real tough offroad though. The locals do the trail in 2wd MDI engine jeeps.
cheers

Its easy trail but scenic even I have seen jeeps doing in 2wd but they do not understand " ABC stuff" but once top on the hills it can be explored.
