    what an awesome trek it was, 60+ KM trek in 4 days, walking more than 5 Km per hour speed on top of the hills on slippery and windy trails. My fastest and toughest trek till now. Enjoyed most beautiful and scenic route to Kemmanagundi. My first experience with leeches, had 16 bites. Trek had everything caving at Mullyanagiri, Manikyadhara water falls, bababudangiri, Galikere lake, Hebbe falls.Thanks to all the hulks vivek, Raghu, Jassi, shashi, Karthik and Manish for making trip memorable. a real challenge for mental and physical strength and truly "Hike for Hulks"

    One of the very best trek i could ever imagine hav come true..with all the pre trek preparations working out in patches though.. with the best core trekers ever. couldnot hav asked for more.. starting with mullayangiri in 1 1/2 hours & as the days went on the pace we build was amazing.. The fastest i hav ever treked would be this.. The cold on the top with the wind was amazing..The view of tiger reserve with no. of sambhars enroute KMG was breathless.. The leeches did there part as well..enjoyed every bit of this... & hebba "amazing" the very best i could imagine as good as dudhsagar i would say...

    An awesome trek with an awesome team. Special thanks to vivek for organizing such a wonderful trek. This one will be on the top of my treks for a long time. Will never forget the cold, fog, clouds, ambiance at the top of mullayangiri peak. Dogs following us from mullayangiri to baba budangiri. Countless number of sambhars which we saw enroute to kemmangundi, leeches, me and vivek running back to galekere for getting the salt, missing the routes and me shouting that we are on the edge of bhadra wild life reserve. The beauty of hebbe falls... Everything was simple mind blowing.

    P.S: I strongly believe sheshi and manish defenitely introduced city life to some leeches :).

    I really loved and enjoyed every part of the trek.
