The day

On a fresh day from Bengaluru, travel to Magadi. Breakfast under the shade of trees, begin with Ganesha.  Get a sense of the flow of the land and the rocky hills. Climb up a hill fort, breathe the fresh clean air, and take a pause. Get close to pure nature around you – spot some birds or geological features. Rocks, history and nature are all around you!
