After a light breakfast the trek began downward in the direction of Kukke Subramanya. The natural
scenic beauty enthralled all the members. Kumaraparvata and Sahyadri hills were visible from the path we trailed. The destination was Shri Chowdeshwari Temple, 15 KM away from the View Point. Weather was so good and encouraging one. Last one hour of the trek witnessed heavy rainfall. We could not complete the predetermined distance as heavy downpour lessened our speed. KSRTC bus was on its way back to Kudige. We boarded the bus and reached Kudige at 1700hrs. All the members were tired but felt jubilant for doing lifetime achievement of such a long trek in the dense forest.
