Hello all CTCians
This is one more fantastic trek from CTC around Bangalore!!!! This time its One Night One Day trek near Chikballapur, just 60 km from Bangalore.  

25 CTCians started towards Chikballapur town around 1500hrs on Saturday 3rd Dec from Bangalore in different KSRTC buses. They started walking towards first destination directly form town’s main bus stop. Plan was to camp at Shiva Temple on Kaurav-kunda hill by following simple steps; but after considerations of participant’s enthusiasm started climbing hill from different side without trail around 2230hrs. This exploration ended at fairly good place and campsite after getting stuck at big rock cliff in night.. Then everybody had fun of making dinner of Rice and Potato curry in absence of main cook!!! And beauty of this is it turned out great and tasty with coriander chatni. Dinner ended with desert—Haldiram's Rasagulla around 0000hrs!!! 

Then team of energetic trekkers climbed hill top for camping by leaving other lazy bums.. and found place to get rest around 0200hrs… We opened eyes with most beautiful sunrise above the ocean of clouds and purpose of organizing a night-day trek around Bangalore is served.... J


Entire Sunday we explored few valleys in search of water stream and finally found good source of water near Bangalore with almost same rock pattern as of beloved Venkateshwara!!!

This exploration was end up with Jakalmagadu fall. Though very little amount of water flowing we had nice Fish Therapy!!!!
