On Green Route

Sakleshpur is  one of the greenest getaways in Karnataka  and  famous for the railway track trek.  Eventhough had been to this place a couple of times, couldn’t resist this opportunity to chill out on a weekend.  After long discussions and mail chains we zeroed out to go to Makkithitta HomeStay near Sakleshpur.  Sakleshpur is 6 hrs drive from Bangalore  and we started at 12.00 am from Bangalore after having  a bash at sarathy, Indira Nagar.  There was no traffic inside city and  stopped at a Dhaba after Nellamangala to have some food around 1′ o clock.

Reached Sakleshpur around 5:30 and the home stay people has arranged a jeep to show way till home stay.  The way was very bad and our vehicle found difficult to catch the speed of jeep.  We reached there around 6:30. They arrangements made was good.
