. This is a discussion on A Lazy Drive - Around BR Hills within The Voyage Junction. Part of The Rev Zone category; Went for a drive to BR hills and nearby areas. The route taken was Bangalore -> Kanakapura -> Malavalli -> ...
Thanks Raja. It was a 495 kms drive. Surely you can expect many more pictures.
We did start early. (5:30 am). We made a mistake of going through silkboard -> Banshankari -> Kanakapura main road (NH 209). Metro work is going on in that stretch. We should have taken Bannergatta road -> NICE road -> Kanakapura road or Hosur road -> NICE road -> Kanakapura road.
We didn't touch Nanjangud. The lakes were on the way to Kanakapura on NH 209. They were Gabbadi kere (lake) and Harohalli kere (lake).
We reached BR hills by 11:15 am. En route we took a deviation to visit Ganalu falls.
We did stay overnight at BR hills.
Accident. No one injured. Happened around 5 AM.
On the way to Ganalu falls.

Reached BR Hills around 11:30 am. Had lunch and around 3:00 pm, started another slow drive beyond BR hills. BR Hills -> K.Gudi forest Check post -> forest exit check post -> K.Gudi forest Check post -> BR Hills. Spotted some wild life. The roads were OK/good for most part - bits of broken roads - nothing really bad. Returned around 6:30 PM.
We stayed at a place called Rajathadri Hill Villas. Nothing much to rave about. Had all the basic amenities, clean and spacious room, Veg food delivered to the room, 24 hours hot water, DTH TV and car park. It was located in a quiet place. Did not have any bad experience. It was a pleasant experience.
I use a Nikon D90 with 18- 105 VR kit lens.
Thanks. There are a lot of great places we can explore right here. We just need to get the timing right.
This picture shows how close we were to the Indian gaur
We left BR hill by 6:30 AM. We had initially planned to start earlier, but somehow overslept. And as we were leaving these guys insisted that we have atleast coffee before we leave and we had to wait 5 minutes for that.
We again took the route down to K.Gudi ( we liked the drive the previous evening) -> Chamrajanagar -> Yelandur -> Kollegal -> Malavalli -> Kanakapura -> NICE road -> Hosur road
Exceptionally amazing clicks man!! I really likes the B&W road pic from the first set of pics. Just a tiny suggestion, just smudge the registration plate of your car, which reminds me to compliment you that you have a wonderful looking ride.
