Ride back to Cuttack = Day 3

After visiting these two great places of Odisha, time to go back to home.
I got up at 5.30 AM. Finished my daily routine. Put chain oil in bike.

In this trip, I learned how to live a simple life with least necessity.
This was my bed for two days.

This was my open bath room

It was 7.00 AM and I was ready to leave for Cuttack from Gurukul Ashram at Pugar, Kundili.
Time for some pictures there for remembrance

At 7.40 AM had breakfast of Idli-Bhuguni- Chatni at Kundili. This was the place from where you can go to Deomali.

Some mist in air between Pottangi and Sunki

In the morning time the road and landscapes looked stunning

Road to infinity ?

Then the ascend started at Jeypore-vizianagaram road

IMG_6226_7_8Compressor.jpg



Great landscape too

Another zoom view

Saw a local Monday Market (haat) between Podapadar and Sunki.

IMG_6235.jpg



All nearby villagers come here to sell vegetables and other produce every Monday

IMG_6236.jpg



All vendor's vegetables were farm fresh here. A little traffic jam of trucks ahead also.

IMG_6237.jpg



But these type of traffic makes me happy.

IMG_6238.jpg



At 8.40 AM , I was at Odisha - Andhra Border.

IMG_6241.jpg



I was now riding on the roads of Salur Ghati. Saw this type of posters everywhere.
I don't know what is meaning of this as it was written in telugu.

IMG_6242.jpg



Saw this beautiful water stream

IMG_6244_5_6.jpg



A zoom view with a small village near that water stream

IMG_6247_8_9.jpg



Took a small break at Andhra check post after descend of Salur Ghati.

IMG_6250.jpg



Saw this Church and some important place on small mountain which goes via white stairs

IMG_6251_2_3.jpg



Crossed sugar cane belt between Rambhadrapuram and Razam.
Saw this vendor carrying so many utensils in his TVS Moped. On my Ladakh ride, I used to carry 25 KM luggage with me on the bike. But this is much more than that.

IMG_6254.jpg



Any Ladakh luggage carrier will feel small in comparison of this

IMG_6255.jpg



AT 10.40 AM , I was riding between Razam and Chilakapalem. Saw this stone mountain. Stone quarry was cutting it. One day will come when this will not exist ! All tree leaves were getting a white powder coating because of this stone cutting quarry in this area.
I don't know when we humans will stop making permanent damage to nature ?

IMG_6256_7_8.jpg



Time for a coconut water break near Srikakulam. Coconuts water is only Rs.10 here.

IMG_6259.jpg



At 12.30 PM , I had lunch of Roti - Tadka dal - Pyaj and cold drink at a road side dhaba at Palasa.

IMG-20141208-WA0000.jpg



At 4.45 PM took a small break after crossing Khordha. Sun was setting behind.

IMG_6260.jpg


As per plan I reached home at 5.55 PM.

IMG_6261.jpg


Total ride for the day = 510 KM. Ride map for the day :

Third Day.jpg


Total Expenses:-
Petrol Rs. 2200 + All others Rs.900 = Total Rs.3100 for total 3 days 2 nights.

I hope you all will like and enjoy this travelogue of mine at a different place of Odisha.

"Deomali - Highest Peak Point of Odisha and Duduma Waterfalls - three big waterfalls at one place of Odisha"

After riding at Khardung La, Marsimik La and some other highest roads and passes of the World, I wanted to explore Odisha.
I am 48 years old and I ride Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. I am stock sub- broker by profession since last 25 years based at Cuttack, Odisha.

My last travelogue at BCMTouring was for my solo ride to Ladakh and Zanskar for 18 days ==>http://www.bcmtouring.com/forum/travelogues-north-india-f61/dream-explore-discover-ladakh-zanskar-june-2014-a-t58981/


The "Likes" and appreciation by all Bcmtourians encouraged me to write this second travelogue at BCMTouring, friendliest India travel community

My Plan to Ride at Deomali.....it was 520 KM from Cuttack.
View attachment 579041


Finally, On 6 th December 2014, I rode to Deomali - The Highest Peak of Odisha . It is 5485 feet above sea level.

On Day one, I rode 561 KM , starting from Cuttack - Khordha- Berhampur - Palasha - Srikakulam - Razar- Salur Ghati - Pottangi - Kundili - Deomali Top . I saw Sunrise near Khordha that day and saw Sunset on Deomali Top.

I was dreaming to ride to Deomali ,after coming back from Marsimik La, Highest motorable PASS of the World. But I saw a picture of Deomali at a stall of Odisha Tourism in Baliyatra on 13 November, and finally decided and planned to ride at Deomali- Highest peak of Odisha .

Saw this banner at Odisha Tourism Counter at Balijatra==> DEOMALI.....^highest place of Odisha on 13th November. I told myself that I will ride here soon....
