Pit Stop on NH 17 @ Upunda River Bridge, Karnataka, India

I was on my way from one coastal town (Murudeshwar) to another (Maravanthe) on NH 17, when I stopped at yet another scenic bridge.

This bridge is over the Upunda River. It is not a long bridge, but provided some of the most exhilarating views that I have seen.

The palm trees and coconut groves on either bank, the hills in the background and the cloud cover added to the charm.

Didn’t see any boats/canoes on the river. Guess they come out for fishing in the early hours of the morning and the late hours of the afternoon.

Personally, would love to go canoeing on this river and explore its beauty!!
