9) Kanva (13/2/10) :










Kanva (13/2/10) :

It was 2 weeks since we visited the last place..so decided to go outta town somewhere.. Ashok & arvi couldn’t make it this time :( :( [ but on the 13th trip everybody were there , same place \m/]

Soo it was only Arun & me this time , we hadn’t decided the place…it was either between shivgange and kanva… finally it was decided to be kanva.. we decided to meet in front of RRMC on mysore road..( at about 7 am )

I reached thre at about 6:55 am.. and arun turned up at 7 40 am hehe ( tats Arun \m/). Then we left for Kanva… the road to Kanva is awesome… a 4 lane road.. very smooth drive… Finally after we reached ramnagar ..we took a right which would lad us to the reservoir..

The road then was muddy and rocky…. Horrible road it was… so we had to cover the next 10 km at speeds of 25 km/hr… Finally we got the glimpse of the beautiful place..It was HUGE, abt 8 times manchinbele... we spoke to the watchman and he explained all shit possible of the dam…then we took a walk on the bund.. it was amazing… one side full water…and the other side greenery :D… we reached a small bridge which lead to a tower kinda thing… below there was water… as I don’t knw swimming…I was really scared to step on it… slowly I made it on the tower… then Arun came… while going back “ Hey man look..we gotta be confident… thre`s nothing to worry about,,, wait il show u.. walk confidently”.. 1step …2 step… BOINK…. The slab almost fell off… I had to leap.. and then realized tat I was still alive :P…

The view from tat Tower was brilliant…. We could see the entire reservoir.. \m/ . then we decided to go down to the actual water , we parked our bikes and only stepped into the water,,it was cold…. We spent about an hour there and finally decided to return to Bangalore…

When we were just leavin kanva…we saw a group of 7-8 people staring at us... it was Our our friends Vineeth , Darshan…and the gang.. we spoke to them for 15 min..and decided to leav…we took another kickass route , a newly laid road… which runs behind the reservoir and leads us directly to Ramnagar :)…

The drive back was super awesome… about 30 km we were side by side.. cruising along mysore road….\m/ Finally we reached our homes safely…

The best part of the trip was …. The budget was 1 rupee which I spent for fixin my almost punctured tyre.. we went back home and had nice breakfast… Morning well spent :)

8) ManchinBele (31/1/2010) :











ManchinBele (31/1/2010) :

It was only 5 days since we had visited Chunchi, It was a Sunday ( I guess) ..we decided to go to manchinbele reservoir as Arvi,Ashok & Manu hadnt seen it.

Arun & me had visited this reservoir on 6/12/09.. Both of were shocked to find such a beautiful place so near to namma beangalor00. We had 1st visited the Big Banyan…found it too boring so..went ahead to visit Manchinbele.

Manu,Ashok & Arun came to my house at around 6 :15 am, ( Arun had come early :D).. then finally arvi made it , we left . MAnchinbele is only about 35 km From my place.. . we went through Mysore road… Manu drivin my bike… Arun Alone…aand Arvi and ashok on one bike…

We drove really..i mean REALLY slow since the place was near and nobody wanted to go home early :P. we drove at 25-35 km/hr :D :D. After many minutes of struggling we finally reached the place .

The 1st sight one gets of this place is simply super awesome… we stopped for a while watchin the reservoir from far… then finally decided to move ahead. As we reached the waters…Ashok and Manu started of there funny acts and jokes… jumping from one rock to another… throwin stones.. etc etc.. The water at this place is kinda different from other places we`v seen… Then we cooked up stories how the reservoir was actually formed… And us being the forefathers and all..Haha!! ( hope u all get it )

Then we found a SNAKE SKIN… Search For the snake Began :D… I kept the snak`s skin in the bag… YAay good Luck \m/
Arvi & arun told AShok to try the stand on water thing again… as he was getting ready…SPLASHHHH!!!Manu threw u huge boulder near Ashook..HAha!!!

We fooled around the place for another hour…and decided to go around the reservoir…the road was horribl…and we stopped at rocky place, a really fantastic spot to view the place…and a nice hangout place..AShok spotted a water canal..both of us tried getting into it… finally we made it inside it… it was dark . Arun & Manu stayed on the bridge.. after spending sometime sittin on the rocks..we decided to leave…

As we were real hungry..we stopped at a hotel ( Next to RRMC :D haha!! ) to hav breakfast.. ( WARNING: only breakfast good) … everybody had 2 rounds of nice breakfast… ( except me :D ) was kinda full half way through the 1st round…

Then we returned back safely.. A morning very ell spent…with lots of fun.. A perfect place to spend a morning … \m/

And yeah…as soon as I reached home . the whole place started stinking I had to throw away the lucky snake skin I had found :( :(
