At Hogenakkal

On last Sunday me, my brother, and Uncle's sons from Banglore went to Hogenakkal. We started from home with 5 bikes. We reached Pennagram and had breakfast there. Then we continued riding. In the mountain ranges we travelled slowly enjoying the nature's beauty. At Hogenakkal expect me and my brother every body had oil massage. We are not taken oil massage since one of my relative died few days before and my mom told upto Thursday we cannot take oil bath. The person massaged superbly. Then enjoyed under the waterfalls for around 45 minutes. Then we had lunch (Fish) and started to home again taking photographs all the way.
