I set off at dawn on the 26th of September, the destination for the day being Muthodi in the Bhadra wildlife sanctuary. The route would be

B’lore–>Nelamangala–>Kunigal–>Hassan–>Chikamagalur–>Muthodi

Even though i was playing around with this idea, I was quiet skeptical about actually executing it because the distance was pretty big and that I would have to take some extra leaves too.
