Great find (for me), thanks for writing this wonderful travelogue, KarthikK. I immediately checked availability for the 29th October weekend but it seems to be booked out. Surely doing it in November.

Superb details Karthik. Itís a very quiet place. Standard JLR fare. Good to know they are renovating and revamping facilities. When we visited, we were the only family then.

The Halagur idly place is getting lots of crowds on weekends, thanks to the Youtubers.

The MM hills route is picturesque. Even the stretch beyond, that leads to Germalem is beautiful as well (I think it should be around 40km from there). Those are places that truly hasnít seen crowds yet, hopefully remain for a few more years.

The way youíve captured pics and written, it makes me visit again. Thank you.

Lovely travelogue! There's so much hidden beauty all across India and it's wonderful to explore such off-beat places.

This is surely going be to on my go-to list when I visit Karntaka.

I had never heard of Gopinatham (or perhaps it never registered) and it was always Sathyamangalam that came to mind when Veerappan was mentioned. Will definitely plan a visit here soon.
Thanks for the kind words a_chelat

Not so fearsome as in the later days. I left the Granite business in 1990. After 31 years, the travelogue made me to recall those days of wild travel.
Really interesting to hear of your experience with this region. I guess those days will have been far more challenging with no mobile phones, etc.

Why mobile phones? Even a landline phone is luxury by then. We book PP trunk calls and wait for hours to get connected.
