Monsoon Magic II - Alekan falls

We happened to drive around Charmadi Ghat - the road which connects Mangalore to Chikmagalur - over the last weekend.

It was lovely drive with mist, waterfalls and excellent road. In fact we found the outstanding Alekan waterfalls as the mist cleared for a few minutes. We had missed this out last time.

This is a stream in full flow. You encounter it early. It is just before you start climbing. It is approximately four KMs from Kottigehara. This stream forms a lovely waterfalls on the other side of the road. The Alekan falls may not be visible if it is misty. If you are lucky like us, you will be rewarded with a fabulous sight.





Then you have green walls like these below.......



.........and smaller falls to give you company.....


........in green and misty surroundings....



You can enjoy the panoramic views of Malnad in monsoon.....bit of mist, water bodies, all shades of green.....


..........While driving on surprisingly good roads....


Drive around in Malnad this monsoon and come back rejuvenated!
