At the coffee and forest regions near Chikamagalur. Something to think about?

  1. The stones are Mile stones. It says that it is 55 Miles, 1 Furlong and 122 yards from Shimoga town. This was one of the first roads to be built cutting across western ghats, in 1839.

    You are having an interesting tour. I would suggest you to have a company, as two is always better than one, while on a vehicle. And the home work you have done before the start of your tour requires lot of fine tuning.

    One entire life is not enough to see all the beautiful places of this Mother India. So, you have to criss cross the places whenever you get some time to visit.

    And then the "Great Arabian Sea Drive" becomes "GASD + Western ghat drive". But don’t worry. Just keep driving and explore the beauty of this mother India. All the best.
