Best part of the trek

Just back from Sharavathi valley after a two day adventerous exploratory trek, from Kanoor to Nagavalli. Though Kanoor – Doctor mane (Doctor’s house) – Kanoor Kote (Kanoor Fort) is a known explored trek path, we kept Kanoor as starting point and end point Nagavalli via Doctor’s house & decided to explore a new route with the help of Ganapati of Sharavathi Adventure Trails.

If you ask me which was the best moment of the trek, it’s very difficult to pick one from the below list –

  • Traveling in a luggage carrier for 10+ KMs after a bus journey of 10 hours
  • Getting scratched by thorns as we trek. And you look ahead to find no path, all you can see is thorny bushes
  • You reach stream after 4 hours of trek or rather say exploration, and jump into it immedeatly
  • Lunch is ready & served, you are hungry, but you can’t eat because it’s steaming hot :)
  • Everyone volunteers to help for preparing dinner. Menu: Chapathis, Rice, Sambar & Moong dal Kheer (hesaru bELe paayasa)
  • No lights around and you have moonlight dinner
  • After a sumptuous dinner, you go on a night trek for a KM
  • And to top it all, journey of 40KMs sitting/lying down on the bus top
  • You duck/bend every time when someone shouts to avoid tree branches & electric wires

    Best part was the Sun-walk to catch the bus. I was feeling dizzy and u guys running….ooooohhh!

    As u say, its pretty difficult to capture one moment as the defining one in that two-day trek.

    May be it can also be the moment when we missed the track and went inside a deep dense forest and spotted a stunning waterfall :-)

    we almost had a similar kinda experience with the bus top, or the piping hot dinner after a tiring day of trekking when we had been to Mullayanagiri through sarpa daari.
    Nice one!
