Mekedaatu is a 100 km away from Bangalore. We had planned it as a day trip. Mekedaatu means the place where the goat jumped. Its a narrow gorge in river Kaveri. The myth is that a goat was chased by a tiger. The goat came to this point in the gorge where to save its life it need to cross the river by leaping over the gorge. It did and so the name Mekedaatu which literally means the place where the goat leaped.
Just two hours travel from the fast growing city of India, the villages are still the same.
This thing I hate the most in every tourist spot, some random guy with a printed slip asking for parking charges. Why the hell should I pay to park in this empty piece of land. But we paid the amount, just to avoid a fight with that looser.
|So called parking lot where you need to pay|
This is the first time, I am seeing such a landscape.
|Chunchi falls – A completely different landscape|
Wish to spend hours in this calm pool in a parisal reading books.
|As in the “KO” movie|
|A closer look|
|Crocodile seems exciting|
|We rode at the roof of the bus|
|The exact spot|
|Holes in the rock|
|The slow stream|
|A bird’s eye view|
|The sun is going down|
|Our awesome bus|

|The rock texture|
|The ultra-fast safest bus in the world|
