Default Bangalore > Kushalnagar > Madikeri Bike ride !

I go on bike rides along with friends every couple of months to places around Bangalore which are usually in the 300 km range.
This time we had been to Madikeri via Kushalnagar. And this is what we found in Mandalpatti which is around 18 kms from Madikeri. .

This is a 'middle of nowhere' kind of place with no proper roads. The available road is very narrow with huge potholes and inclines. It took more than an hour for us to reach here from Madikeri though it was just 18 kms.
It is a perfect place for offroading, camping, trekking etc. There is also a view point at the end of the road.

We reached there at 5 to 5:30 PM. By the time we were done having fun and heading back it was getting dark. We met this guy who offered us to set up tents, a campfire and prepare food for us on this hill. After all the fun we had we were kind of tired and wanted to relax, so we accepted his offer. We paid him for the food and he left us with his assistant who setup the campfire and tents. He returned after 2 hours and started cooking. The food was not that great but as were very hungry ate it anyway.

It was a nice experience sleeping in the tents on top of that hill. He warned us of wild animals and fortunately he had a gun and was on guard all night.

Overall it was awesome, never had such an experience till now. As it was unplanned it added to the excitement.

Let the pictures do the talking now..
