Huliyurdurga: (KumbiBetta Trek) - A Navadurga

Huliyurdurga is located in tumkur district in karnataka. which is around 60 km from tumkur and 99 km from Bengaluru. Generally for the outsiders like me the kumbi betta is called as Huliyurdurga Fort or Vice Versa. Its one of the Navadurga's around Bengaluru. It was in my list from many years.
As it was a last Navadurga for me which was pending from past 3 years. Nowadays we restrict ourselves from taking more stress and strain probably age is a factor. Earlier we used to start ride early in the morning at 4 or 4.30AM and reach the trek base by max 8AM and return to bangalore by lunch or in the late afternoon depending upon the drive distance and trek distance. But Nowadays what we do is that we start in by late morning or late afternoon and reach the nearest available lodge options and explore nearby places and next day early morning we start trek and reach to the hotel by 11am and start to bengaluru and reach by evening.  Well Kumbi Betta initially me and my friend lost the trail to the top, There is a ruined temple at the base and to the left of the temple the steps starts till the middle of the hill where there is a Kumbi Ganapathi temple. After which there is no steps. From here to reach the top of hill there are 2 parts of rock climbing or rock management. The climb is to the top of hill is easy but getting down is bit risky and slippery. Overall its easy trek except the last phase. Look for ruined fort at the top and view of huliyurdurga city. It is said that its built by KempeGowda. There is no shelter at the top of the hill.

Book Review of "Kuch Woh Pal" by Subrat Saurabh

About the Author: Subrat Saurabh, an author, artist and blogger, is famously known by his pen name ChickenBiriyanii. His tweets and clever liners were broadcast and increased in value over TV stations and it oftentimes gets grabbed and distributed in driving daily papers or online news gateways. His tweets and clever liners are likewise extolled; and turn into a web sensation over WhatsApp. His verse and short stories have been distributed in different magazines.He studied from DAV JVM Shayamli, Ranchi, and completed Engineering from KLESCET, Belgaum. He is as of now functioning as a Senior Consultant in Wipro Ltd. also, lives in Bangalore

About the Book:Kuch Woh Pal” is a hindi collection of poems of 75 pages with catchy paperback, which can be read in one go. The writer takes you on an excursion mixed with delighted and agonizing encounters of a young man going up against the battles of life where he is far from his home for ponders, makes new companions, discovers love, say a final farewell to her lastly experiencing a tumult of feelings like outrage, sentiments, aloofness, despondency, disappointment, partition, relinquishment, and so forth. This book is justified regardless of everybody's chance since it doesn't request much time; the lyrics are moderately short and hitting, and the emotions will stay with you until the end of time.This is certainly a novel idea. I altogether delighted in understanding it. I wish there were more pages with more lyrics as it leaves u requesting more. 'Kuch woh Pal' makes for a delightful read and sets aside us back in opportunity to the moment that one leaves the home and encounters life all alone out of the blue. Every lyric is only a page long and the way that is anything but difficult to convey is another huge in addition to as we can read at whatever point and wherever we need to, regardless of whether while voyaging or from that most loved niche/corner in the house. The clear dialect makes the written work convincing and they never neglect to strike an emotive harmony. All the poems are well written with lot of emotions, thoughts and intensity, which shows the passion of writer.Of the part, Koi Unhe Ghazal Keh Raha Tha, was my most loved piece. Few times felt that some words and sentence echoed the other,but not the same. These are sonnets from the standard strolls of life, and the straightforward yet exact selection of words, influence you to feel they're close to home; like your own story. It’s a quick read, as a debutant Subrat has a very strong command over language as well as words. Anticipating few more books from the author. I would Rate 4/5.

Thanks to Blogadda for sending this awesome book for review.

Book is available online at Amazon with price of Rs.125. Grab your copy soon.

Channagiri Hill Trek

Channagiri Hills is in channapura village which is located near nandi hills, Around 60kms from Bengaluru.Its around 1300 to 1400 mts above sea level. The nandi hills range has many hiking opportunities around. Most of th times its always green an covered with mist. The Channagiri trek trail is almost covered with shrubs, has many boulders around and water bodies flowing all the way from the top of the hill.Heard there are 2 ways to the hill. We started from Channapura village, there is a one more way from sultanpet as well, comparitively sultanpet trail is easy.The mesmerizing views of Nandi hills range, the chirruping of birds, chilling breeze, slippery rocks, mindblowing waterfalls made trekking more interesting and restless. There are few small falls on the way to the peak as it was a rainy season. Weekend usually crowded with local village and town people. Better to be in the group trek. The huge waterfalls is on the middle way of the peak which quite scary and majestic. There are few hidden small waterfalls which can be explored if interested. Suitable care to be taken incase trekking during rainy season as the rocks are slippery , also terrain is very diverse ,it could be very dangerous. From the lake to trek base is almost 20 mins walk inside the grapeyards and paddy lands. From Greenery to waterfalls, Ruins to rocky lands, It was a package of everything in one!!.

Look For : Cave temple well before the top, Hanuman temple at the peak, Kalyani at the top, Few ruins around, Blue pond near the start of actual trek.
