    Hey Folks,

    It has been quite some time, since I have posted on TFI and here I come with my latest drive experience on my Linea 1.3 MJD ( BLack Beast).

    First of all I would like to thank Manju and Guru my close Buddies who made this tour possible and this time we were all set to explore Caves and beaches ..

    After several rounds of discussions, we deiced to hit YANA caves shown in Nammura Mandara Hoove Kannada movie and the idea sounded interesting for my friends as well.

    Yana is 45 KMS from Sirsi Town and pretty close around 50KM to the coastal belt which is KUMTA, GOKARNA etc.

    The D Day was all set on 24th May- Staurday and to keep this travelogue short and sweet I have been very precise to the points with loads of Pics :)
