Default Mlore to blore

This is the same place where Kannada movie 'Mungaru Male' was shot. It would look different since most of the curves have been concretised.

Hi nbr, nice pics! Including that truck in slumber mode
The Airavat looks so graceful on road.
By the way, was that last snap (the 4 lane road) taken on the NICE road?

I had taken my Palio instead of my Swift, Palio is strong on these roads. I would suggest to use a SUV to drive in these roads.I will be in India next month, will be taking the same route again.

Nice pics. Please do caption each pic with at least the location and a brief description; even if you do not have time to type down a travelogue. By the way, the sunset photographs are particularly nice.

I started around 8AM from Mangalore and reached Bangalore by 2:30PM.
It took time for us at the ghats,since it was raining heavily
