CHIKMAGALUR - KUDREMUKH - KEMMANGUNDI

As usual while looking for some places for week-end trip, we got couple of choices, but we finalized on Chikmagalur. Its not only near by (only 6hrs journey from Blore) but also is one of the famous hill stations and tourist destination in karnataka. We booked tickets to/fro Volvo from k.s.r.t.c.  We had booked   fri late nite bus, so we could  reach  Chikmagalur around 6:00am.. I had  booked a cab from local travels, he picked us up, and showed  couple of hotels. Unfortunately most of good hotels were booked, as there were many marriages on that day, and were booked by them.. Without much option we had to settle for some medium hotel, that too non-a/c room. Hotel guy promised to get us some good A/C room by evening.(A/C rooms are little better in condition). We freshened up and started to Kudremukh, our first destination..

We had decided to make Chikmagalur as Base and visit Kudremukh one day, Kemmangundi one day and  Chikmagalur on final day.. As chikmagalur has best climate to stay...Meaning of Chikmagalur  in kannada  is "Younger daughter's town - Chikka + Magala + Ooru).  It is believed  to have been given as a dowry to the younger daughter of Rukmangada, the legendary chief of Sakrepatna. Located at an elevation of 1037 meters, and near by hill stations, offer spectacular views and excellent climate...
