Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta - Chamarajanagar,Karnataka-2

If you ever wished to touch the clouds,yes this is the place.. :) Though we visited this temple in January'2017,the scenic beauty around Gopalaswamy hills evoked in us a special interest to visit this place again,especially in monsoons..The Lord Krishna temple popularly known as Himavad Gopalaswamy is situated around 230 kms from Bangalore..It is even more nearer to our place,only 65 kms from Sulthan Bathery..The private vehicles are only allowed up to the base of the hill as it is tiger reserve zone...From there they would take you to the hill from Govt' buses of Karnataka and it will take nearly half an hour to reach the hill top..There are vigorous climatic changes as one reaches the top of the hill to visit the temple..Prasadam is offered in the temple in the form of midday meal for the Pilgrims..The grass landscapes,occasional showers and cool breezes enhances the picturesque beauty of the hills.

*Don't forget to carry woolens,raincoats or umbrellas if you are planning to visit this place in monsoon season.
Moral from yesterday's road trip :
One should not stand in between the clouds when they're busy carrying water with the help of vigorous winds..They are NOT intruder friendly,they'll freeze you to death :P
Here we go with the pics..

Food arrangements for pilgrims...

 When the clouds clear the sky a little bit..

You can see people waiting to catch the return bus in the below pic..It's neither mist nor rain,those are clouds..

 I hope you spotted a little red bus in the below pic..



Wow, great tourism spot.

Even though we have not seen the place, we felt the chill and enjoyed the beauty of the hills. I like the way you have written. Nice pictures.
