Also, we came to know we can travel to mysore from sathy or sathyamangalam through ghats section of 29 hairpin bends (courtesy info: meenaprakash). Then, the kodiveri dam was very nice for sight seeing. There was not much flow of water but yet it was enough to bath. so, we had a gud time there.. It was great fun to play in water.nearly we spent 1-1 1/2 hours there. Had really a great time!!!
This is the first trip where we saw on both sides fully lushy greenery… it was awesome to watch!! Knowledge sharing of routes that sides with the person who drove n mountains in the view… Enjoyed n very happy 🙂
