Wonderful pictures and write up sriram! its really fortunate that you were able to see as well as photograph so much game. This took me back to my childhood years, growing up reading kenneth anderson, among others he mentions Moyar valley in 'the black rogue of Moyar valley'
also nice HT on that Thar, which one is it?
@tatsago nice picture, that looks like paradise!

Just wow and completely agree that the restrictions have to be in place. Not everyone should be allowed to just walk in, grab a permission and mess around. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hope you all enjoyed my first post in TeamBHP and I am sure you will be interested to visit Thengumarahada.
Thanks for the excellent travelogue, sriramaero

Good to see another KA fan here. In case you are not aware of it, there is a facebook group dedicated to KA and there is a lot of information and rare photos there.

I dont think the exact location of the famous boulder from Moyar valley has been found as yet.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...asinagudi.html (From Chaotic Bangalore to Calm Masinagudi) has my account of a somewhat in KA footsteps but far from it. You might find it interesting

Even if the location is found, will it be possible to trek to visit the same. It may away from the road considering the geography.

Also, I had, few days back while searching for some details about Masinagudi came across your thread.

Noticed that you had mentioned about Chemmatham temple in the same, however the external link you mentioned is not working. Can you please check the same, or post the those details in your travelogue.

I will check up with more die hard KA fans regarding the location of the rock.

Link for the temple is http://blog.deepakmisra.com/2009/05/chemmanatham.html

Please do post photos in case you visit. People who have read the story do get an eerie feeling when they visit the temple, self included.
