And therein ends a trail..






So, my current trail comes to an end and I move on to my next destination and my next post.But before that, a last look at some of the images that still linger in my mind..Coffee and tea estates, flowers,forests, mountains, curvy roads, hairpin bends, boulders and an interesting snippet from the Mahabharat. A mountain peak of the Babu Budan Hills in Chikmagalur loomed large before us . "Its called Kunti "Kal" (stone) where Kunti, the mother of the Pandavas had rested during their exile.." came the explanation . "Could we go there ? "I asked and I got no answer..so I contended myself with this picture..
