Hemagiri Betta, Kunigal Tq.

This was our first trek-to-be in 3 years since we came to Bangalore. It was during those hey days in Mysore, that we used to have extensive trekking programmes in the western ghats in Karnataka. Now, Bangalore had put us onto a life-on-fast-track, and we badly wanted to come out of that, hence this venture! Our first target, with the current setup, is to cover places of interest around Bangalore, which are lesser known to the junta. Read on to know more of one such place!


Our regular habit of googling led us to know of a place called Huliyurdurga in Kunigal taluk. Actually, we set off there. As usual, we left by around 08:45, and hit Tumkur road. Since it was not a Sunday, there was some heavy traffic near Peenya. After Nelamangala, we took left onto NH48, to reach Kunigal. NH48 is a 2-lane scenic highway that connects Bangalore-Hassan-Mangalore.

A day at the farm house

It was a really lazy weekend, and we had absolutely nothing to do. So mom and I decided to visit Kiran’s (my cousin) farm house near Bagalur. We left quite late, by around 09:30 am, and were on Hosur road in no time (it was a sunday). After crossing Attibele, we entered Tamil Nadu. We took the road to the left at Zuzuvadi which leads to Bagalur. A few kilometres from there and we were there at the farm by 11:00. Its a small farm, less than 2 acres, but we were totally carried away by the peace and tranquility of that place. My cousin has built an amazing farmhouse in the western style, complete with wooden floors and wall paneling. I recollected watching those amazing holiday homes on Discovery Travel & Living!
