Thanks for the pics and the post. Just reminded me of my childhood. I grew up in Donimalai which is one of the "large and legal" mines there. If you told that Hospet-Sandur was adventurous, you should definitely try Sandur-Donimalai sometime. And for an extra kick / to save a few Rs / if you miss the buses, you could definitely hitch a ride in one of those lorries. It is so much fun! I totally agree that not many things can match that experience, there are so many stories I can recall now. However, I remember that the place was much cleaner in the 90s (may be the the illegal mining was not so rampant then)

Oh wow that's good to hear. I saw the name Donimalai township in one of the maps but was not sure if I should proceed further. Maybe next time, if I get some company :)

It's just sad that so much economic activity has not resulted in better life for people there. And instead they have to live with the side effects.

Hehe, thanks. What to do, when the media sucks you have to take the reportage into your own hands ;)
