To BR Hills, Kotagiri and Manjoor

After a trip to Goa before last Christmas,  I haven’t been on the road. A trip, any trip to somewhere was really due.

This was a dream on the map. The plan: Take the Bangalore-Kanakpura-Malavalli-Kollegal-Sathyamangalam  route to Kotagiri and swing by BR Hills on the way. On the second day, drive to Ooty, Manjoor and back to Ooty. The return trip from Manjoor will show us Avanlanche Lake from a distance. From Ooty, drive straight back to Bangalore.

This trip took us through roads like this…
