Minimal Exposure

One of the most wonderful well hidden route we took to reach Chattisgar in nonstop rains .Geared with just our motorcycles and a big travel bug..Some places had roads and some had traces of a road and at some leg of the journey,there was no road,no people but just nature.


Thought of riding the motorcycle all the way in,but the rain and the slimy ,slippery mud refused to allow the 2 weeler.So had to park it a few feet away and walked to this paradise sorrounded by fog,mountains,lake,mud,emptiness and just us 3 friends without anyother trace of life.


The thunder bird which took us through nonstop rains,mud,dirt,forrests,
and places wer roads wer unheard of and through floods which no other vehicle passed for the 2 previous days.

Weird rock formations made by cascading rivers.











At last the Buddha tatoo on my arm....

Did there used to be a lake in the 1st image? It looks like it's been longing for rain.

All 3 of you rode on 1 bike?

Sad that there are no cascading rivers now to flow on the rocks.

Nice tattoo photo. Planning on getting any more?
