The Blue Mountains n Talakadu

I went to Talakadu (near Bangalore, Karnataka) on a one day trip with my teammates. It's a huge sandy area on the banks of Kaveri, where the river takes a sharp bend. For a charge of Rs 10 the boastmen would take you to the center of the river on these round boats.

I had read a lot about Blue Mountains before visited it, and indeed when you look towards the horizon, the mountains look bluish in color. We went on a 5 hour hiking up and down the mountains. It was beautiful and pretty adventurous too.
