HesaraGatta - A Sneak Out

With my bleak riding opportunities offlate, felt like making a couple of hours useful last sunday. Always wanted to check out hesaragatta lake and the supposedly seeming barren isolated area around. Well it was too near and could have been there any time u see ;) Called up Santoosh for directions. He, a regular to that place, gave me enough landmarks right down to the road humps, that i din needa ask ppl for any directions :)

I could basically see only the lake bed instead of the lake. Summer!

Went ahead on those empty roads. And finally came up to the place i had seen in pix. Not really as remote and isolated as it seems but still makes for good photo shoots ;)

The last pic was the TajKutira resort. Good that they dont charge for taking a pic. Well it was just a two digit ride (95kms). But still an escapade ;)

lol! was there on the 17th June. Just felt like a spinn and took off. I did not anticipate a dry lake bed. Took me by surpise.. when I climbed up there. Was getting dark. Got some good sunset snaps and rode back.

Did you notice the progress in this village? ( if you been there in the earlier days). I was worried if I would find fuel there. Man!! we have 2 bunks, couple of engg. colleges... a upgrade to the rly station comming up :)

Yeah Vinod, running a lean season these days owing to some situations at home. Hoping for good times to roll soon :)

Rajiv, me too felt the same, when i was goin there i imagined about water sports happening on the lake but only found grazing cows :)). Well bangalore is growing in every nook and crany available.

Thanks Gabrial, will keep track of your progress on your blog. Best of luck.
