Chamundi Hill is located on the outskirts of Mysore.
Walking about 1000 steps will take you to the top. I went with Adam, a new friend from the Toronto group that is here, right before sunrise yesterday.
Halfway to the top is a 5-meter high granite statue of Nandi, Shiva's mount.
Unfortunately the sky was a bit foggy so the view wasn't as clear as I would have liked.
The Chamundi temple awaited us at the top of the mountain. Because we were there so early we weren't bothered by too many vendors selling random stuff. Apparently it is more auspicious to do this hike in silence, so I may have to return on my own.
I am hoping I can catch up on real-time blogging and photo uploading this week. I have been meeting more people and being a bit more social, which has been great but then cuts down on computer time.
Sharath moved my start time up this morning as well! Now I start at 7:30 AM instead of 8 (which is actually 7:15 in real time). I am happy to be starting earlier as it allows me more time for breakfast!
