I have been to this lovely place Chikmagalur in Karnataka recently. I never heard about the place and the trip had been a memorable one for more reasons than one.
Nestled in the Western Ghats and far away from madding crowds, the place turned out to be a real haven of peace and tranquility.
Stayed at a place called " Eagle Eye resorts" and the place has a beautiful view of the Ghats...the weather was heavenly..the mists rolling all over the hillocks and painting a beautiful picture which varies with each passing moment..The balcony has a fantastic view of the Ghats with greenery spread all over..and with nothing but the sounds of the crickets for company, it has been the most idyllic holiday i ever had ! posting a few pictures..Ofcourse the music was always there in the background... smile.gif
Thanks to Lakshmi, Drake, Hilde and Marc bhai..they are the inspiration for me.. smile.gif
The famous Halebid and Belur temples are enroute and will post those pictures next time ...

Excellent Pics, SF. smile.gif

In 1977, I was there for about 7 days! Guess doing what? Receiving training in tobacco!!!

Just beautiful, Venkat. I have never been to Chickmaglur in my life. I think, it is known for coffee plantations. I want to go during my next visit to Bangalore. View from the balcony is fantastic.

That is where Indira Gandhi won from in 1978. I think that is how this place shot to lime light

Trot..trot SF goes..trot trot to town.. laugh.gif
But it is a pleasure to lose ourselves amidst the greenery where Cells doesnt ring often..and you dont hear people chattering..not an automobile in sight spewing smoke..no rush to finish the day chores.. tongue1.gif the list is endless..
