I hope you to move away from online hopes and towards the steering or handle bars and go.

Please let us take this off the keyboard. I told you on the phone, the only time to go out would be early in the morning if one has the energy. The plan just happened on saturday late evening.

Here are a few snaps. Will soon figure out how to upload on this forum

I backed out the second I heard it was a 04.30 call in the morning. My jeep will take 30 mins just to start in the cold! Khan called me late saturday evening to check if I could make it. Next time, if its this early in the morning, I would rather just ride upto meet one of you guys at home and jump into your gaadi. My jeep will be miles behind your suzuki's on the highway and I dont want to slow down a recce.

No sweat man, just pulling your leg. I was quite happy waking up at 10am normal Sunday hours

So do you guys need to complete this recce or does it stand completed?

It stands completed. We have identified enough areas around there to do off-roading there.

We did not do full off-roading there, but just identified the spots that can be used for off-roading.

Default Deverbetta/Mylanwadi Recee

This Sunday, Vijay, Vijay, Shakir, self & few friends discovered some amazing terrains near bangalore with lots & lots of potential. It can be used by beginers, moderate, and even for extreme off-roading.

The original plan was tojust test out my SPoA & Vijay's composite fiber leaf springs but it turned out into a full fledged Recee/OTR

Can't wait to go there again sometime soon.

Some random pictures from the recee

khan_sultan, where is this trail situated? looks like good fun.


I have one input from my side... This trail is also near Bannerghatta National Park. There is a temple behind the national park, with a waterfall some distance away. Lots of forest area, I had gone there a few months ago and see no trouble from the locals.

Directions: Just before entering the road that leads to the national park, there is a junction with an arch on the right. Take that right turn and follow the road about 6-8KM. Ask for TK Falls. If anyone plans to go there, I could join as well. My jeep is not yet ready, so will have to hitch a ride with someone. By the way, I have a strange suspicion that Mukund (ragpicker) already knows this place!

Hello Vijay,

I am planning to visit this place this weekend, would you please do kindly let me know, where is this location?

Considering I am pretty close to your place in Banashankari, if you give me few details on the location & route along with your pre-cautionary advise, it would be gr8.

We plan to go in 2 vehicles Jeep's, as a day out on this Saturday.

Looking forward for your kind response on the same.
