Hey guys I hope you all are doing well!!! We both love road trips and here is another vlog where we have shared an interesting place of Karnataka in Kollegal Taluk i.e. Dhondenling Dhondenling is a well-kept secret of Kollegal. This comes on the Kollegal – Hasanur road (not the Chamarajnagar highway). Dhondeling offers great landscape views and it gives a slice of Tibetan monasteries and their culture. A nice place for a day trip. The people in Dhondenling were very helpful and showed lots of respect and gratitude towards visitors. They have very kind hearts and welcoming smiles. You enter a whole different world altogether, right from the moment you take the turn towards Dhondenling from the main road, and also we found inner peace and happiness once we entered.
