I will insist on a location poll, if Aditya can add one.

I would still say that you guys will get roasted in Feb mid heat. Just a thought and not to dampen the spirits.

Wait a minute! Are you sure this was well thought out?

I mean, my hometown is just 15kms from Mahe. It's called Thalassery. And the only reason Mahe is popular for us is the cheap liquour ;-) and fuel there since it's part of the Pondicherry UT. As someone described it earlier, it could be a photographer's haven and just that I have not looked at it from that angle.

Guys who really are concerned about their vehicles - please refrain from fuelling from Mahe. The petrol is surely cheaper by about 4rs/litre than it is in Thalassery but I've heard of frequent cases of breakdowns owing to adulterated fuel sold at these pumps. So, BEWARE !!

As for the route: Bangalore - Mysore - Hunsur - Nagarhole - Kutta - Tholpetty - Mananthavady - Kuthuparamba - Thalassery - Mahe; is what I recommend from personal experience just about a month ago. I've heard the Siddapura route can make a seesaw of some Civics. You know what I mean.

My personal opinion -I think there are better places to go than Mahe. Wayanad, maybe?

I am just reminded of a saying.....

"Muttathe mullakku manamilla" (the jasmine flowers of our courtyard has no fragrance). "Ghar ki murgi dal barabar".

Beauty always lies in the eye of the beholder, and for the same reason M. Mukundan has written "Mayyazhippuzhayude Theerangalil" (On the banks of mahe river) which had won a lot of accolades world over.


I am in no way connected to Mahe, but since I have been there on 29.12.2012

1. It is a small place
2. The petrol did not break down my Civic
3. The roads did not break down the Civic either


I am not attending this meet, hence am not biased to any particular place.

But having been a part of a TBHP meet few years back near a reserved forest, it seems beaches would be ideal

Sorry guys for not putting any updates on this, as the meet is planned in later part of Feb, I was silent, so can we have a refreshed roll call? Karthik can you put the list here who all had agreed for the trip. And Aditya if you are reading this, please add a voting button for location.

Have we frozen on the dates yet? If it's 23rd/24th Feb, then I might not be able to make it :(. Any other dates is fine.

Seems to be another Mega Meet.
Not known yet, but I wish I could be part of it - Quite some time now..:(
My personal suggestion would be Dandeli from cost, time, nature, photography and most importantly driving perspective - from a recent experience of a colleague.
