Ride to Panchapalli Dam


Panchapalli dam is one of unexplored places around bangalore. Situated 90 kms from marathahalli towards hosur. After attibele take a right, on the way enter TVS Company move towards Denkanikottai and reach panchappalli dam. On the way you find many small villages where you can ask the way also google maps can help you. Bettraya Swamy Temple is also a must visit with panchapalli dam. There was no restriction and we were freely allowed to walk on the dam, May be because reservoir was not full but had decent amount of water. Dam is covered with mountains and at the end of dam gate you find a village too. One more new weekend gateway away from hustle bustle bangalore life. Better to spend weekend with nature instead with concrete forest!!There is a temple where statue of Policemen accompanied Gods!Awesome weather overall, Initially when we started from silk board it started drizzling, yes thought rain was playing hide and seek game. overall it was very good weather and ride. I hope video describes all!
