All set for Adventure!!!

It all started for me from Namma Bengaluru. I started from my house around 8:00 AM though my flight was scheduled for 1:15 PM to Delhi. I was really tensed with ongoing Kaveri issue at Namma Bengaluru. Thought to be in safer side and started early from my house on 16th morning to Bangalore Airport. Had breakfast near Hebbal with cab driver on the way to airport. Reached airport around 9:15 AM. I met one more trekker come stranger at Bangalore Airport who is heading to Rupin Pass (Indiahikes). His name is Manjesh Annappa. Both of us shared trekking Gyan to each other. Meanwhile Vishal joined me at Airport around 10:30 AM.

Deepak, Achintya, Tarun & Sujitha joined us later. After check in, waited for few minutes to board Delhi flight.
