Day 0: We leave for Kalasa, Chikmagalur on the Friday night. This overnight journey from Bangalore to Kurinjal is breath-taking, where the early birds can see the nature unfolding.

Day 1: Reach early at Shamse around 10 km from Kalasa, from here the ride continues in a Jeep to Mullodi. The 6 km off road drive is quite thrilling and beautiful. Upon reaching Mullodi, which serves as the Homestay in Kurinjal, fresh up and have breakfast and prepare to start the Kurinjal peak trek with packed lunch. The nearly 20 km trail takes you through the tropical rain forest, which can get a bit messy during the monsoons. But otherwise, its sheer beauty is magical. As you advance up, you will encounter things that might leave you smitten. Stroll through the backwoods, cross a few water streams, revive in a mini-waterfall, and find yourself in the green meadows, stretched as wide as your eyes can see. At Kurinjal peak, listen to the spouting sound of the waterfall from the other side of the peak. You can see the thick woods on one side and a sheer drop on the other, and the breezy winds can knock you off, so sit tight!. The spot serves as the perfect spot to satisfy a photographer's soul. Head back to the Homestay before dusk where hot and crisp dinner awaits. Campfire and Tent stay are provided for the nature enthusiasts.

Day 2: Early morning after breakfast, visit the Somawathi falls to get an invigorating shower, then pack up to check out of the Homestay and head back to Bangalore.

We went for a day trek through Escape2explore. Starting from Bangalore at around 6:30am, we reached Ramanagara base at 8:30am. We were 6 people and were the only ones for the day trek that day. They offered breakfast where people from the previous night's trek were also present. Breakfast included Idli Sambhar, pakoras and bread omelette with tea. It was normal. After the breakfast, we started with rappelling. We had a couple of guys from their side to help us do it and it was definitely worth an experience. We had great fun and had an amazing start to the outing.

After rappelling, we started with the trek. One guy from their side took us through the way. The cool weather with a slight drizzle made the trekking experience wonderful. Clicking pictures in the meanwhile, we took around an hour to reach the top. It started raining at the top adding cherry to the cake. After spending some time, we started descending. It became a bit slippery due to the rain but it was not difficult to keep your feet firmly and get down.

After the trek, we got back to the base at around 2pm to have lunch. They asked our choice and we opted for vegetarian food. We were famishing till that time and the food was good. It was home-made food having Aloo sabzi, dry cabbage vegetable, paratha, rice, pulao and curd rice. They offered some fruits as well. Post lunch, we went for shooting for some time.

Some of us were interested to go for Go Karting and ATV. There was a Play zone nearby and their guy himself took us there. It was not included in the package though and we paid separately there. It was equally good to add to our fun. We then proceeded to the last thing - Kayaking. The guy properly instructed us about how to do it. The water was very dirty though due to rains. Nevertheless, we went for it and it was fun to kayak through.

In the evening, we had tea and returned back to Bangalore around 7:30pm. We would have reached earlier had we not gone for Go Karting. But it was worth our time.

Overall, it was a day well spent and it felt like doing so many things in one day. They handled everything professionally and we had a great day out. :)
