  1. Hello all, Planning to go to Bengaluru in a while from now. Any recommendations on the route or places to stop, precautions etc. Bangalore highway:
  2. Ride for the trip Layout of the Sanctuary of Ranganathittu bird sanctuary. Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary Maps Link: https://goo.gl/maps/QDfaf6KLFR72 Location: It is located on the outskirts of Srirangapatna, about 16 Km before Mysore. Where to Stay: Both Mysore and Srirangapatna are convenient places to stay to visit the sanctuary. Besides, there are also home stays and farm stays away from the city, and near the sanctuary. How to Reach: This sanctuary is 135kms (3 Hrs) from Bangalore on Bangalore-Mysore highway (NH275),Take a right turn after Srirangapatna (This road also connects to KRS and Coorg road) Price of Entrance and Boat ride: The entrance Rs. 60 per person and for children it is Rs. 10 (Age-5 to 12 yrs). No charges for children below 5 years. The best way to see birds is to take a boat ride inside the sanctuary. The normal rate is Rs.60 per head, but these are short rides, with a boat load of people. A longer ride (Special boat service) costs around Rs. 1000, The experience is worth it. Park Timings and Best Season: The park timings are from 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM. Go early in the morning, or in the evening, just before sunset, for the best experience. Tourist footfall increases after 10 AM and continues through till 5 PM. The times just before and after are best for watching the most birds and enjoying the peace and solitude!The best season to watch birds is winter, but we can see birds here throughout the year. Which birds you see depends on the season though. Painted Storks Egret in breeding plumage Stone Plovers Crocodile- up close View point View of Lake Tips: While one day is more than enough for the entire circuit, if you are an ardent birdwatcher or wildlife enthusiast, you might enjoy staying somewhere near the sanctuary and making multiple visits. The next destination was Balmuri Falls, Which is 11kms from this sanctuary. Balmuri Falls: Maps link https://goo.gl/maps/mCYZfXJ15tk It is a popular picnic spot. In this area Cauvery river flows wide over a rocky bed. This is basically a check dam runs across the river more like a wall trying to stop the flow.It is a man-made reservoir.When the check dam is filled to the maximum, water overflows in a neat long cascade. Youngsters and nature lovers adore the place because of its isolated location. One can bathe in the shallow waters of the fall.One of the major attraction is to get into the water where it cascades down. And then there is the seasonal boat ride. The scenery is great and the general ambiance is relaxing. So that makes its an ideal picnic spot. There is a old and ancient Ganapati temple. This location is a popular backdrop for song scenes in many Kannada movies. The weak hearted can always use the bridge that is built across the river or sit on the ghat and enjoy the scenery. I couldn't capture more pictures as it was dark and raining. Note:The only annoying thing it seems are those cheeky monkeys ever trying to snatch food stuffs. It is ideal one day trip from Bangalore. Total distance covered 2 way is 300kms. Few more random pictures from our drive
  3. "Lost and alone on some forgotten highway - Travelled by many, remembered by few" Every December, it has become a ritual for us to go an long drive over 4000 kilometers. This year after multiple discussions and drop outs, every one agreed to drive down South. For me it is always the drive that matters and I was never particular about the destination. No matter where we go, our ultimate goal is to end up in Goa to celebrate new year. Day 1: Hyderabad to Chickmagaluru Day 2: Chickmagaluru local sight seeing Day 3: Chickmagaluru to Gokarna to Goa Day 4 : Goa Day 5 : Goa Day 6 : Goa to Hyderabad. We split into two teams in two cars. Creta and Polo.
  4. Sharing a message posted by @ram97 for the benifit of other memebers We are planning a trip to Kanha national Park in December. Do you agree that the best route from Bangalore to Kanha is via Hyderabad and Nagpur. We have never really driven past Hyderabad and was wondering, if you would know that if the roads are good all the way upto Balaghat (Passed Nagpur). Was planning on staying in Hyderabad for the night as I have been told that the roads till Hyderabad are fantastic and can be covered in 6hrs. if you keep a decent pace of around 120km/hr. I was just worried if the Hyderabad to Kanha stretch is too long or do you believe it can be done easily in day. We have frequently done Bangalore - North Goa in under 10hrs and its a similar distance so was wondering if it would take about the same time. Looking forward to your response. Warm Regards, Ram
