The side face of the Chennagiri hill - lush green just after monsoon - probably the best time for a trek?
Travelling with the group from Bangalore to the base.
That exciting moment when you see the enormous hill that you're about to ascend
And so we start ..
.. cutting through bushes ..
.. stopping regularly for breaks - being the amateur hikers that we are ...
.. while taking weird photos ..
.. and also faking for a candid shot
The rough arid terrain with steep slopes towards the end of the trek ..
.. made sure that you have sore legs for atleast 2 days.
The views form the top ..
.. make the hardwork worth it all
Also greeted by the mandatory over the top 'mata ka mandir' ...
... along with the reservoir to enjoy a well deserved meal after the climb
And the journey back to the base starts ..
Another panaromic view from the hill-top
