Thanks @magic. Agreed, this log is short and has more pix than write-up. I'll definitely try and add in a little more description in my future logs. [Since this trip was from late December 09 and I kept postponing the travelogue for almost a month, I rushed it a little and posted in a hurry... ]

Smile Digging up the past...

Normally I try and avoid digging up old threads, but this time I had to add in a pic to this thread to make it a little more complete from a personal angle.

While sorting out some old papers, I found an old pic (probably the only one we still have from this trip.). This was from our first trek to Mullayanagiri, taken on 23rd October 1996:

This pic is again from Mullayanagiri, dated 27th December 2009, taken 13 years, 3 months and 5 days after the first one...

There is a lake close to Baba Budanagiri - did you check it out?

This is from our Mulliyanagiri - Baba Budanagiri - Kemmangundi trek

Jun 2005. It was not fun being bitten by leeches. Those bite marks stayed on my legs for over 3 months.

@smartcat, we did make a quick visit to Galikere lake. On that day there were quite a few visitors near the place and we scooted from there as soon as possible. With the Budangiri shrine closed for renovation, all visitors are

Agree... not only does the bite mark stay for quite a long time, they also keep itching for atleast a month or so. I was trying to figure out the reason for the long 'staying power' of leech bites and read somewhere that if the leech drops off on its own, the bite mark will just be a wound which will heal fast.

However if the leech is pulled away by force, it's mouth parts will remain attached to our skin and will cause itching & scarring which may last for quite a while... But then again, my first reaction when I find a leech is to flick it off; so can't help it I guess...
