60 km west of Bangalore, off Magadi Road, Dabguli
We were planning for this trip from long time, first we planned it on Diwali but it got cancelled due to heavy rain. After two weeks we finally managed everything, we started at early morning 4.30 am from Indiranagar (Bangalore). Thumping sound of royal Enfield and the cold whether at morning refreshed us We took the Mysore highway and taking a small cut road at right which pass through Kumbalgodu state forest was exciting but bit scary at early morning because we couldn't find more than one or two vehicle in our entire trip. Then we reach savandurga- Manchnabele road by taking a left, on the way we saw the beautiful view of Manchnabele dam. Then through magadi-Ramanagara road and then savandurga road which passes through savandurga state forest we reach our destination. Savandurga which is considered as the largest monolith hills in Asia was giving us a delightful view from the down. There is a Veerabhadraswamy temple situated at the foot of the hill. we parked our bike there near by and started climbing right away. But the way we choose was hard and steep so we went back and find out there is a better way which are marked with yellow paint which is very difficult to notice at low light. After few steps itself we find out that it is not going to be an easy task, your shoes should have good grip. In some places slope is almost 80°, we have to do spider crawl. There are the remains of the fort build by kempegowda on the top of the hill as well as on the way were you can take rest in between trekking. We didn't get much exhausted as we were taking pics and videos of the mesmerizing views around in every 10-15 minutes.

There are over 6000 species of plants here including some very rare ones. The Silver Oak planted here was the first kind of Oak ever introduced here and was brought down from Australia. The Statues of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Edward II are also erected over here. This park is a favorite of morning and evening walkers, nature lovers and children especially.
Ulsoor, Halasuru, Near MG Road, Bengaluru (Bangalore)
Ulsoor Lake:If you are seeking a quiet, solitary place to either stroll or simply to derive lacustrine pleasure, Ulsoor Lake is the place for you. Located very close to Cubbon Park, Ulsoor Lake is a small body of water where the sun setting looks picturesque. A place for relaxation, you can either walk or jog on the promenade or simple sit at one of the benches observing the tranquility of nature or chat your heart out with friends/loved ones alike. Though online it says there is a boating facility here, we did not find any. Just few minutes from Ulsoor lake, is a small Gurudwara. An unexplored gem, few minutes spent there is definitely worthwhile. After spending good quality time there, we were craving for some food. Hence, we headed out to Commercial street as we couldn’t resist the urge of shopping, being the typical girls that we are.Commercial Street:For all those living in Mumbai, Commercial Street is an exact copy of Linking road in Bandra. A mixture of branded shops and street shopping, you can shop till you drop. Once you are there, you would be lured by street sellers and branded shops alike and there is no way you can resist your indulgent self. Though women are usually emotional creatures, when it comes to our staple diet i.e shopping, you can definitely expect them to take a practical stance. We both had to shop different things and decided to meet at a common point after we were done with our heart’s shopping. Whether you are a brand conscious person or prefer everything cheap, Commercial street is a must visit place for shopping if you are in Bangalore. Day 4: Again came the time for solo sightseeing. Having heard a lot about it and staying at distance arms from it, I decided to explore Lalbaugh Botanical Gardens.
