Sangam and Mekedatu Trip
Sangam simply means ‘UNION’. Here it’s the union of river Cauvery, Arkavathi and an other imaginary river which is invisible. A beautiful, serene river basin to unwind in weekends, Sangam is just around 85 km from Bangalore. Green all around and blue up above!!!
The beautiful roadside on the way to sangam
Two bikes and one car - 7 of us
Reached Sangam and have to take that circular boat to reach the other bank
The authorities say - Beware of Crocs! though we dint even see a 'Crow'
From this bank a bus takes us to Makedatu which is around 4 km
A few choose to walk in the jungle expecting to see some wild animals (unfortunately or fortunately we dint see any).
Trust me this is truly adventurous!
while posing so adventurously, I never knew that this shallow looking river has swirls here and there and very powerful undercurrents. I heard from the locals, that many do these kinda stuff, but never RETURNS.
You ask me to do this again??? I will never...Phew!!!
A refreshing and elaborate bath while coming back (in sangam)
