    Hello Ppl, thx to u all for making this outing/trek so successful, it was a real pleasure to organize with great bunch of ppl like u guys, The first day waterfalls trek with steep path of around 1KM was so much difficult, but i was happy to see a great energy from u all, hatts off to Chitra and Nidhi, pleasant discussions/Debates by Chitra, Karan, Prashanth, Ankul, Sunny n others ab our Passions, on the island we camped that night, it was like watching 3 IDIOTS part 2 for me he he he:D:D, i really mean it so inspiring.... I still hope those 3 Dosa's are still in Nidhi's Box, sanjay can u arrange a BF for all of us this weekend, we are missing those Ragi Dosa's so badly especially SUNNY :D:D.......u guys added more fun in the water where we spend almost 3-4 Hours without seeing any land close to us, diving from the branches of the dried tree in middle of the river remembered our childhood days, thanking you all again for making this weekend so special inside the forest.....

    Kudos to the Organizer Shravan for arranging this adventure. "Expect nothing and get everything" was the motto of this trip and it stood true to its theme. Two days of dhamaka which included a forest trek, a steep climb down to an amazing waterfall that included some dangling from rope exercise, lots of fun at the waterfall, boat/coracle ride to a river island, night camping in the island and water-sports that included all of us swimming a 1.5 km stretch of water from one island to another. And the people who made this trip were an awesome lot that made this an unforgettable event.

    I would say that this was one of the best spent weekends in my life. From trekking on a vertical incline for hours to bathing under a 100-feet waterfall, crossing a river bare-feet with your shoes in your hands and water upto your thighs to swimming under the sun in the Sharavati backwaters from island to island, the herbal high-tea and the splendid moments of candid recollection - everything was perfectly well planned and organized. A very big hug to Shravan for organizing it and to all the 17 others for making everything so beautiful!
    As someone rightly remarked, "This makes me realize that people do exist!" :) (y)

    hey all, thx to everyone who had paid and sent their ID cards, now i have initiated with bookings, so NO REFUND will be made any further if someone cancels, as i am already takin risk since only 11 ppl have paid so far, still 2 more to b confirmed to reach 13 MIN, I had 13 on the cards who had confirmed with payments but unfortunately 2 ppl dropped due to some unavoidable circumstances, so PPL out here this is the last chance to grab these 2 slots, mind u that i am closing this meet after 13 Nos, last time many turned up at the last moment so i have to disappoint them, as i did not get forest permissions & higher seat Bus as well,so ppl interested in real adventure, can confirm quickly........................

    Hello all, The pick-up and drop point will be Majestic only, no deviations will be allowed, i think we can manage while goin as its friday evening, so commuting will not be a problem, but only problem we will face is when we get back to bangalore, it will be late night, so i advise you guys to bring ur own vehicles and park it in Railway Stations, there is no risk as such, i used to park in railway st and i have not encountered single problem as on date or may be if two or more people are from same area, can hire a taxi or auto to share and secure urselves, any idea's please bring it on......and please everyone reply their locations so that we can do some pooling, i m riding my bike to the TT guys Home, and will park my vehicle there and board TT, let me know if anyone stays near Basavangudi :)

    hey ppl,10 Slots are already booked, 3 more left, confirm ASAP if really interested, as i am not going intake anymore after that, last time many ppl regreted that they couldnt make to the trek, since they turned up b4 a week to the trek, n ocourse i have to dissppoint them, as i couldnt get forest permissions for them, these kind of treks are not usual, n not many ppl kws ab it, as u need a strong local source in the forest to explore the beauties inside the JUNGLE, now i have few ppl, but after i complete all the trials in this forest, i will move to some other unexplored places than sharavati, its hard for u for u guys to explore sharavati again, pls do not wait for last moment n confirm ASAP.

    Hi Shravan,

    Thanks for updating the details adding photos. I have a few questions that I'd clarification on please.

    1. Can this be changed to Sat/Sun instead of Fri/Sat? (I just checked and I do not have Fri off, nor can I take vacations this month :-()
    2. What does the 3.5K include/exclude? (transportation, food, permits, equipment rentals, boat rentals, etc)
    3. Are the water activities safe for people who can't swim well? (me for example :D)
    4. What are we expected to get/have? (sleeping bags, headlamps, etc)
    5. What time do we get back on day 2?

    Thanks for your time and organization.

    Cheers,
    Swami
