Pit Stop on NH 17 @ Sharavati River Bridge, Karnataka, India!!

National Highway 17 is a highway of rivers, bridges and great views. Hence, every single time I am riding through NH 17, I try to stop at these bridges and sneak a good peek.

This time around, I was at the Sharavati River Bridge. At over a kilometre in length, this bridge is one of the longest in Karnataka.

The river that tumbles in the Western Ghats to form the impressive Jog Falls is a mighty sea of water at this spot and is very close to its estuary point.

And, as is true with any estuary, one can see a lot of fishing vessels, canoes and boats out in the waters with their fishing nets.

Specialities here are the colourful boat jetty that catches the eye immediately, the smell of the sea breeze and the fish that is very endearing and the innumerable islands that dot the river waters.
