another 5km to Savandurga...

The southern view can be seen from a spot on Magadi-Ramnagar road very close to the junction where we need to turn to Savandurga.

early morning climb

Gulveer, Manchanbele lake and Savandurga

Some time last week of December 1996, Gulveer, Kinetic Honda and I set off to Savandurga for an overnight stay. We stopped on the way, just before Manchenbele Reservoir, to take this picture. We are looking at Savandurga from the East.

We took the Mysore Road - Big Banyan Tree - Manchenbele - Savandurga route. The road was in bad shape but it's much more fun to ride through country side, villages and small hills and forest.

My first solo trip to Savandurga, some time 1995. The picture was shot around 7:30am.

Sun - Savandurga - Siddeshwar

Renu shot this sunset photo at Omkar Hills, a small hill with an ashram on it on the outskirts of Bangalore. The small bump on the horizon, between the Sun and me is Savandurga...
