Mullayanagiri, Chikmagalur

Before proceeding for Chikmagalur we had done good study of weather in Chikmagalur, courtesy Google. The prediction was pleasant and sunny. Within city limits it was indeed dry and pleasant, but as we drove up the Mullayanagiri peak we started experiencing light drizzle, soon it was raining.


It was just raining, not pouring, it was misty all around, and visibility was almost zero. We had to be extremely slow and careful in the twists and turns of the road. The roads are narrow and old, they were breaking of from the edges, so take care on those roads, till new ones are built.

Mist all around provides one with good fodder for photography no doubt, but I yearned to see the sky at least between the branches.

The mist makes it look mystical, eerie but beautiful at the same time. Nice pics.

A trek to this place is long time pending. May be this October we should conquer this peak.

Driving along winding, twisting roads while it is raining is always nerve-wracking to me. But the rain and mist made for wonderfully atmospheric photos.

The mist makes for a nice photo but I know from experience that Indian roads are challenge enough even in sunny weather....

We have to drive on roads like this fairly often during bad weather. But at least you got some neat pictures. I'm glad you had a safe trip.

I like these misty shots, Indrani. I like the way the photo fades into the background.

This could have been from Bergen in Norway where I live. We are known for all the rain :)
