    Default Hyderabad - Ooty - Udipi - Bangalore - Hyderabad ..... 7 Days of Crazy adventure.

    It has been a week that the semester exams have concluded & it is winter which means its time to ride. Me & my friend were thinking of riding towards the south & came up with a small plan.



    However , it was a WELL-UNPLANNED trip and we decided to go where ever our heart wants in and around the approximate map plan.

    TECH-SPEC

    Riders - 2 Engineering Students (Part time motorcycle customizers)
    Rides - Yamaha R15 & Yamaha SS125
    Camera - Samsung Core(safed dabba & 8mp Olympus Digicam(1500 BC )

    Things we carried
    Clothes
    Riding gears
    Warming clothes
    LED torch
    Tools
    Mosquito repellent
    Soap
    Bungee ropes
    Pepper Spray
    Chain Lube
    Water bottles
    Packed food (salted-peanuts , biscuits , choco-pie)


    Aggenda

    Pure adventure through all possible unconventional routes & enjoy the beauty of nature.
    Spend the least amount of money as both of us are students . :P

    So we start ...


    Early morning ... Hyderabad - Bangalore highway .. 4 lane super boring

    Hyderabad - Bangalore - Mysore (Day 1)

    We started around 5:00am from the meeting point (Tadbund) ... kept the pace and reached Bangalore by 1:00pm. It was pretty much a speed run & the bikes drank fuel like beer. :-P ..LOL

    The Hyderabad- Bangalore stretch is long wide 4 lane roads , with strong wind blast all day. For smaller bikes , its extremely difficult & tiring to complete these 600 km.

    On reaching Bangaluru , we met one of our very close Biker friend , Dempsy & had lunch together. It was a very delicious lunch.

    After lunch , our friend Dempsy escorted us till Mysore highway.

    Next was our time to ride the last 150 kms to Mysore. We were to stay in Mysore for the night and start for Ooty the next day.
    Another very close friend(sister) arranged for our stay in Mysore. She happens to be a bikerni too.


    It got dark by the time we entered Mysore city. Met our friend Supriya and she led us to the lodge. It was a pretty good & comfortable lodge.

    All of us had a light moment , discussed about our ride , and then our friend left.

    The room was clean & cozy. Had juice and went to bed.

    Mysore - Ooty (Day 2)

    We started from the lodge at around 6:15 in the morning . The weather was gloomy and chilling.
    Had to wait at the Shell petrol bunk to fill up.

    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

    Soon we filled up the tank and started for Ooty. But before we can take up some pace , we saw beautiful scenery on the outskirts of the Mysore city. We were mesmerized by the beauty of nature , covered with fog.

    All through the way the route was scenic. We rode via Bandipur National Park ... sighted few kinds of birds , peacocks and spotted deer on the way.
    Also we rode through 36 hairpin bends , amazing experience it was.

    My carbureted Gladiator significantly lost power with the increasing altitude ... I was struggling to keep the bike running on steep incline climbs.

    Almost stalled my bike on this hair pin bend ... it was that steep

    We thoroughly enjoyed the corners ...though it was not very comfortable to do high speed corners as the road was narrow and traffic filled.

    One of our friend's friend, Shawn suggested us to book a room in "Divine Highland" lodge. It was affordable (750 rs for 2 people) and was located on a cliff . The room was hanging on 2 poles and the whole cottage would swing if someone moves.

    Would thank Shawn for the suggestion.

    The climb was steep & challenging ... at the same time it was thoroughly enjoyable. The beauty of nature at its best.

    Bikes returned excellent fuel efficiency all through.

    The huge coconut which we both struggled to finish.

    Ooty and around (Day - 2)

    After reaching Ooty , we searched for "Divine Highland" but it was not on google maps. Asked few locals and we found it. With a little bargaining , we closed the deal for 750Rs and checked in the room. Room wasn't very clean but totally manageable . There were excellent delux rooms available at 1200Rs but that was out of our "agenda"

    After freshening up , we left for Emrald Lake ... one magnificent lake it was. We were absolutely speechless seeing the beauty around. The water was crystal clear. It was the cleanest lake I had ever seen. The route to Emrald lake was nothing less than a race track .... We were cornering like crazy & I kept scrapping my foot pegs on almost every corner. All throughout the day , the weather was chilling.

    The R15's beak

    After we came back to Ooty town , we visited Chocolate Museum which was again suggested by our friend's friend Shawn. And oh boy , what a place it was. A guy attended us an showed us the process by which chocolate is made. We had some chocolates & bought some to take home.

    On the way back we had a heavy dinner. The weather was freezing , and it was dark (8:00 pm) .. and to add to our pain , it became extremely foggy. We made our way back safely to our hotel & played with our headlamps.

    In the night it became freezing cold , we were shivering under the blanket.
