Halgodu to Dabbe mane

Beginning of the story – Beginning & Bheemeshwara

Sunrise at Sharavathi valleySunrise at Halgodu
The day at Halgodu village started at 6 in the morning. I finished my daily morning chores quickly and went for a short walk with camera, while rest of the gang were getting ready. Sun God was rising slowly behind the mountains. Few clicks, a walk for about half an hour and returned to pack my backpack. By that time breakfast & tea was waiting. After breakfast, we had a photo session with our hosts. We thanked them for their help and started towards Dabbe falls. Till the Dabbe mane (house) it was a walk on an almost flat track, the path changing from a mud jeep track to a tarmac road, then into the jungle walking one behind the other and finally twisty jeep track which was going up and down through the jungle.

Walk till the Dabbe mane (Dabbe house) was pleasant and we enjoyed every minute of the trek. I’m not gonna bore you with my narration & let the photos speak instead 🙂
