Hey where is this CCD? I think some one else also mentioned its presence.
Is this close to Kamat? Where is the exact location?

Yes one CCD is next to Kamat's, but this one is almost 25kms from Kunigal towards Hassan, within the HP petrol bunk complex.

Nice pics asethi. Did you drive to Mulyangiri? Newly laid tarmac till the top of the hill. Recently did Chikmagalur about a month back. The hills looked beautiful with all the greenery around due to monsoon.

Even I felt this toll booth was illegal. I remember paying Rs.5 as toll at this place. The reciept said its for some bridge over a river which i never noticed.

No I couldn't go there, as the road was blocked that day due to some landslides after heavy rain.

You could have driven to Mullayyanagiri. The landslide was near Kavikalgandi (between Mullayanagiri and Bababudangiri)

Really nice pics man. Panoramas are simply amazing. Recently did a trip to Kemmannugundi, on the way back we covered, Belur, Halebeed and Shravanabelagola. Will share my pics and the trip log shortly.
