Nice travelogue Pramod. That's a long trip without any planning. Great going.

Kind of OT but it seems like your camera's lens got dirty after the Boats shot. Or have you used a different camera for those shots? Till boat shots they were pretty clean and sharp but after that it's loosing contrast it seems.

Nice travelogue Pramod. Your Fiesta looks gorgeous !

I did somewhat similar route somtime back and your pics brought back memories of that trip. And when I scrolled down I could see my own travelogue in "similar threads" section

Nice one, boss! Good to see that there are still some who get out on the roads without a plan. Even nicer to know that you thoroughly enjoyed your impromptu trip. Hats off to you & your wife for your unplanned trip!

Lohithrao, This time, the tea powder is pretty decent. I have had similar experiences of drinking great tea in the shops (in munnar, ooty) and ending up with a 2 kg pack of garbage
We were lucky this time around.

Hi,
Its a valid observation
The good snaps are from Canon 350D SLR. And the low contrast snaps are from my wife's chota Nikon S230 cam. Hence the result.

Sushrutha,
They are allowing Lorries and KSRTC buses on this stretch.

Default Ambhuthirtha n Hanumanagundi....

Nice snaps!! You could have also visited "ambhuthirtha" which is couple of kms from kalasa. Also on the way to karkala, there is this falls.. "hanumanagundi" Water is clean n also there is a nice easy approach now.

Charmadi ghat is in decent condition, repair work is going at few corners.
