Last weekend, we trekked to Kotabetta. Kotabetta, at 1640m above sea level, is the second highest peak in Kodagu district. It was a fairly easy trek ( ok, ok, for me atleast ). We made a short stop at Kottiabbi falls too.
Eight of us (Me, Harsha, Priya, Vathsa, Krishnaprasad, Manohar, Vishnu and Dileep) had gone on a trek last weekend. The republic day weekend was thus well utilised.
This was a three day trek from Jan 27 to Jan 29. The trek route was Hosagadde-Dabbe Falls-Shaale Mane-Kanoor Fort-Doctor Mane-Gerusoppa. These places are in the vicinity of the Jog Falls. The trek was about 35 kilometers long.

Other than these, I've uploaded a select set of 31 pictures here. Have a look!
