Bababudan Giri- The other view of the beautiful Hills.

This blog is my trip experience which I wanted to share since I started writing blog.
We had been to Bababudangiri hills in November . Bababudangiri is a mountain range of Western ghats in Chikkamangaluru district , Karnataka.
On the way to the hills, we first went to Mulayangiri hills ,trecked a small mountain range and then headed to Bababudangiri hills. It was early winter  the place was covered with fog, a high note breeze,beautiful hills and green cover of grasses and shrubs ..My only expression was wow.. Felt like heaven has descended .

 "I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery-air, mountains, trees,people. I thought ,this is what it is to be happy." as said by Sylvia Plath seemed so true at that moment. 

This was my first visit to Bababudangiri I was completely bowled by the scenic beauty of nature and there would be none in this world who doesn't. That's the beauty of Nature.

We headed to Manikyadhara water falls . That is were all my thoughts took a U - turn.It's a single stream fall falling from a medium altitude from a mountain . Many were taking showers ,playing in the falls . The surroundings of the water falls had a heap of plastics and clothes. Such a beautiful place being dirtied is painful to watch.

We as a citizens ,tourist, pilgrim have certain responsibilities when we visit the places.  Population explosion has caused deforestation . Global warming is on rise. Its high time to preserve our Earth - The only planet we can live. Here are some points every traveller should follow :

Do not leave plastics:

Do not leave plastic covers, papers, spoons ,cups . Take them back with u dispose properly.

Do not feed animals :

Sometimes we see monkeys waiting to be fed. Feeding them makes them lazy and kills their natural instincts . What we feed them may be new to their digestive system and may alter their health.

Take all the waste :

Whatever waste from dry to wet take away and dispose them properly . Do not dump in forest belt as this disturbs ecological balance.

Assorted Plastic Bottles

Leave your footprints and take back memories.

"Nature is not a place to visit , it's a Home." Let us keep our home clean and leave it to our future generations so that even they lead a happier healthy life.
I would end this blog on a note that be a responsible traveller and minimise waste and the authorities responsible for maintaining these sites have to be strict regarding plastic usage. I really appreciate authorities near Irupu falls who did not allow to take plastic bottles and checked at entrance. Hope this follows even in Bababudangiri and we see the changes soon.
