    Continued..
    For few seconds..I just concentrated on the engine sound to guess the vehicle, it was like agricultural tiller sound once, then again some Jeep like sound. Finally decided to face it, WHATEVER it is and came out of the tent.
    For a moment, I stunned to see 2 bikes standing in front of me. EXPULSE & NS 200 it was. Now the guys switched of their engines, I just noticed Mangalore registration No's by the help of those pilot lamps.
    One guy asked me that-if u give us path to cross the road by moving your tent.
    I said- wait a min.. and wakeup my wife and told her about the situation (she was in half sleep)she came out from the tent and stood beside me blankly, seeing the strangers. I said her to help me to move the tent and she was not responding.. mean while a guy came to help and tent was shifted to make way for the riders.
    Mean time I was scratching my head(virtually) thinking how the hell they made till here...? As my eyes scanned the bike,I found Google map satellite mode was lodged in NS200.
    I asked them-where u guys heading to and how so early u people came???.
    One of them replied-we celebrated new year in Mangalore and left at 12.30am and this is our celebration night out come trail ride come expedition ride. Told laughing. How did u managed the diversions ???, I asked them again.
    They looked their faces each other and smilingly told-long story bro. We misguided by map and after so many attempts this guy took us here , don't know how he did, showing the NS guy.
    I wished them happy new year and let them to move on on their trails.good skilled champs I must say.
    It was 5.50am when this all happened. Only 1hr left to sunrise so thought of waking up the wife again(when tent was moved, within a sec.she was sleeping inside the tent by the way ). succeded at 6.30pm.
    Took essential items in tank bag and started our trkeking which is suppose to be only100m by walk. Yes only 100m without trail at the edge of the CLIFF....!!!! very STEEP..!!!

    If I came with my friends, we would have definitely attempted to reach the top at night itself because of new year celebration madness mode.Name:  LRM_EXPORT_25519779543903_20200114_111933864.jpg

    Rays started to peak out from trees, showing the honey dipped nature in front of us. It was only 3 of us, me,wife and nature, We both sat silently enjoying the view and the moment. Name:  LRM_EXPORT_29629086001446_20200114_123320799.jpg

Size:  20.2 KBWe could hear the water falls sound near by (kadamegundi falls) which we visited earlier in 2019 Nov by trekking from my native(5 km trek included 3 km off road). How about a refreshing cup of tea at this point?? Awesome right. Made tea using the needed ingredients we brought(thanks to good life milk tetra pack for 10₹). It was nothing less than heaven for us. Cookies tried their best to keep us away from hungry. I gazed around while sipping the tea. Found a proper trail which was the actual trekking route. Keeping that in mind for next time ,we left the place with our foot prints, took the plastics with us.

Size:  19.7 KBIt was 8.30am, Came back to camping area, while folding the tent, night riders came back. I asked how was the stay.?? Not great, still managed to get few hours good sleep-they replied and went.
    We packed all the stuffs confirming nothing left behind and started our return journey. Again roller coaster ride started, enjoying that, reached to main road. On the way we spotted so many houses which we didn't noticed at night. After riding few kms, we spotted the same dust bin and there was a "R O A D...!!!" very CLOSE to it, going suddenly down.we SHOCKED..!! to see that.

    Unless someone walks to the dust bin and checks, it's hard to find, if coming from kanive resort main road, which happened to us previous day.
    Happily rode the bike in that route and in 5mins bike was standing in front of the mighty mountains at the view point.Name:  LRM_EXPORT_26166968728135_20200114_113021054.jpg

Size:  19.8 KB But the approach I mentioned was really tough and noway it was possible to ride back in that portion. Satellite mode helped us again, showed us a route which pass through kanive resort( We trespassed without permission).
    Now it's time for heading back to home and when we reached samse, I saw the board mentioned direction to 'yelaniru falls', took the diversion and stopped in front of a small canteen to have tea. Owner was eager to know about our ride and after quick conversation, he suggested us to continue with the falls route which is off road going to connect 'didupe' town. It is local short cut route which connects didupe and samse region cutting down travel time to 30mins instead of 2.6hrs. however this route remains closed in rainy season.only Jeep and two Wheeler's ply's in between the two cities on that off road. off road lovers should travel once to experience the thick forest range, water crossings.
    We reached falls bottom by 10 mins hiking.Name:  LRM_EXPORT_23279168413352_20200114_104213552.jpg

Size:  19.8 KB Nice falls with chilled water pouring down. took some pics, enjoyed the view while sipping the tea and snacks(bought in flask). Time was showing 1pm and we continued our journey with little fear about road conditions ahead.Name:  LRM_EXPORT_22814265592333_20200114_103428490.jpg

Size:  20.1 KBit was recently re build in some areas, so within 1 hr we reached my hometown(unite) and had lunch prepared by mom and momentarily, tired body surrendered to sleep within no time.
    Evening 4 pm mom woke up us for tea and after that we got freshed up and rode back to colony, dreaming more rides going to happen in 2020.Name:  LRM_EXPORT_23523830078988_20200114_104618214.jpg
