With few leaves in hand, and an itch to drive, planned for 4 days trip covering western part of Karnataka. After reading @ramjn thread - In Rains and Mist - The Beautiful Kudremukh, Kudremukh was decided. Then with few extra days in hand, planned to visit Murudeswara as well. Booked Thangaali Homestay in Kalsa and Hotel RNS Residency in Murudeawara. Route Planned as below and got confirmation from Krishna about road conditions. We covered Day 1 - Bangalore to Kalsa, Day 2 - Places/falls near Kalsa, Day 3 - Kalsa to Murudeswara, via Kudremukh, and day 4 - Murudeswara to Bangalore, via Jog Falls. We started on 27th Oct and back on 30th Oct. Planned this way to avoid any rush on Diwali vacation time.
