Even I am in same league. I have never faced such problem in Karnataka as well as in Tamilnadu. Such things cannot be planned. But if you express your question correctly, irrespective of language barrier you will get your answer in terms of expression. It is more than enough. Peoples of Karnataka are very kind in telling directions when asked, by whatever means.

Excellent photos Riju. It is more readers delight than owners experience . We certainly need to get few tips regarding photography from you, Samurai, Rudra etc.

Waiting for more to come.

Insane wasn't the word with the speed at which this was clicked. I remember my wife going when she saw this lizard( whatever it is called) and the next instance Samurai goes click click. Wonderful capture and the speed was simply astounding. I aint exaggerating here but this is how it was.

Riju, great stuff! Try to work out your own archives. You already have plenty of good shots. So sooner the better.

Superb thread Riju. The pics are excellent and reminds me of my trip to Murdeshwar.

What is the tariff in RNS yatrinivas now?

When I visited Murdeshwar around 5-6 years back, we stayed at RNS Yatrinivas and they charged 500 bucks for a deluxe room which was huge. Any other place would have charged at least 2k - 3k for a room of that size.

And i agree with you... the view from the balcony is just breathtaking. What a lovely vacation that was.

Once again... excellent pics. Would love to learn the art of photography from you someday.

Riju, Nice pics & a well written Travelogue!
Coastal Karnataka is a very scenic & beautiful place! Had passed through this place once on the way from Mangalore to Goa some two years back!

No wonder Samurai got himself a GV!

All this beauty is not going to last. The Mangalore and Udupi district has been identified as the petrochemical SEZ. That means all the natural beauty will be converted into concrete industrial area and cesspool of pollution.

....the proposal of Oil and Natural Gas
Commission of India to establish a massive Petrochemicals based Special
Economic Zone over 4,000 acres of pristine agricultural, mountainous terrain
replete with rivers and streams, in one of the most ecologically sensitive
regions of India.
[Urbanstudy] Mangalore Petrochemical SEZ Environmental Public Hearing Ended Abruptly

I am very scared to think about the effect of this crazy scheme on my native village which falls in the proposed area.
