Great write-up and fantastic pictures. First one is very romantic.

Shall we add this to our poll list in http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/f.../8912-south-meets-west-inter-region-meet.html
Thanks Sethumurugan! Haa haa, definitely can this place can be added, but it might not be at ideal distance for everyone.

Hi Carfreak,

Very nice pics and nice review. For me the first pic is a "poster for a movie launch" which raises curiosity to know the lead pair [clap]

I am also planning to go in Oct in my New Fiesta and can you post some more pics and the surrounding places if you have covered?
@ Harish, Thanks for liking the pics & review. Lead pair in suspense still [;)] Oct would be ideal and wonderful time to visit. Rains would have reduced. We encountered rain through out the stay but it was fun. You would surely enjoy the drive in your new Fiesta.

Ok guys, here are few more pics!

wow Sethu we could consider this also has an option, who knows if this turns out to be our destination route for meet up. This is a good location ,large open area. No parking hassles. Around 200 odd kms drive and can be reached easily. There is lot of eating option with 5 km around this place.

@ nice pics Carfeak. I have heard about this place but never been there. I guess my next stop for future long weekend would be this.
Please share contact details of the resort for reservations. By the way, that Pond/lake/pool is it part of the resort? Looks awesome!!

@ Gurrala74, I understand your frustration. Have read your previous posts on the same as well. Dont worry friend, grab the FIAT Bravo when launched in India [;)]

Thanks for liking the pics and review. Most of the pics were shot using Nikon D3000 SLR (thanks to my friend) and resort pics were shot using Canon SX 40 Mega Zoom bridge camera!

Hi rajvel,

A suggestion - Dec end and Jan first week might be crowded and usually resorts might charge extra because of tourist season. So it would be ideal if you can plan during during Oct - Nov. During my last trip, I visited Sakaleshpur alone. Do you need details about Sakaleshpur or any other places you are particularly looking at?

Oh! Yeah, thats a natural stream attached to the resort where you can enjoy few games like - tarzan rope jump across the stream, lazy river with the tube etc [:D]

There is one river side cottage on a tree adjacent to this stream. Its usually given only for male occupants. It has no electricity. Night you can hear the insects humming, screeching etc If one is lucky & is a braveheart, can witness elephants crossing the stream also! 3 of my friends stayed in this river side room & had a sooperb experience. Initially when we asked the helper boy about safety, he was like - "Sir, nothing to worry. If it rains, room might get flodded with stream water. Thats all Sir. You can araamse stay" I was like, What! [lol]
