Hosur – June 2012

Been wanting to ride the Bagalor-Hosur road for quite some time. Decided to take a kuccha road from Chikka Tirupati to Bagalur-Malur road and then right to Hosur via Bagalur. Bagalur-Hosur is a pretty good road.
At Hosur, decided to go up the hillock on the west of the NH. Nice view from up there. Will head out to see the sunrise some day.

Next to the temple, a side path takes you behind the temple where there is a small park and a view to the east overlooking the National Highway

Horsley Hills – June 2012

Last time I turned back just shy of Horsley Hills. Decided to go all the way with Shekar & Avishek. Heading out the route taken was via Chintamani. The road till H Cross is ok. Post H Cross till Chintamani there is construction going on and painful to drive on. From Chintamani to Madanpalli, the road is makkhan with some jungle and small pools dotting the landscape. Madanpalli to Horsley is decent road and the view is great as you drive up the hill.  Coming back, seeking to avoid the road construction we opted to go via Punganaru & Palamaner to Mulbagal and back. At Punganaru some locals guided us to a shortcut to Mulbagal which was a small village road with the road disappearing at places. After Mulbagal its is a divided NH all the way.

Stopping at one of the small pools of water after Chintamani. All three were sleepy after idli & vadas at Chintamani.
Hairpin bend on the road up to Horsley Hills. The view down was enchanting.

Breakfast @ Pyare Punjabi – May 2012

Another breakfast trip to Pyare Punjabi. We went via NICE and came back via Doddaballapur and Yellahanka. The traffic on Doddaballapur-Yellahanka road was a mess. It’s a road to be avoided during regular hours till it becomes a divided road.
DJ came along after planing for a long time.
