Bandipur National Park - Chamarajanagar

This is one of the first Tiger Reserves of India which was established in the year 1931 by the Maharaja of Mysore. It was later declared a national park in 1974. This is a few kilometeres north of Mysore and shares boundaries with other sanctuaries and national parks of tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, etc. The national Park is one of the most popular in the country and the Kabini River is an added attraction here. There are about 70 tigers out here in this open area where the animals lead a free life with lots of space to roam about. The main animals here include leopards, chitahs, gaur, sloth bears, sambhars, mouse deer, wild dog, wild boar, barking deer, hyena and four horned antelope. The many species of birds include pompadour green pigeon, grey jungle fowl, honey buzzard, red headed vulture, owls and hawks.
A quiet tranquil forest- a great place for bird sighting. Animals are abundant too - deer, sambhar, bisons, leopard and of course the tiger.

K Gudi Wilderness Camp - Chamarajanagar

This camp helps one to get close to nature with a huge variety of flora and fauna and is located in Chamarajanagar, Karnataka.
K GUDI WILDERNESS CAMP - STAY & SAFARI Being located amidst the unfenced sanctuary, there are no permanent concrete structure. There are about 7 tent accommodation and 3 log huts to stay. These ensure the feel of staying in the jungle amidst the wildlife. It would common to notice Spotted deers and Wild boars around the tents besides the constant chirping of various #birds The place serves simple yet tasty South Indian meals for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The food does have adequate spread too. It is an experience in itself to share meals with the fellow travellers at "Golghar" surrounded by birds and animals. Being a protected tiger reserve, there is no electricity in the camp. Generator Power is available for 4 -5 hours a day. This should not stop one from visiting the place because frankly the power didn't matter. The place is free of mosquitoes inspite of being in the jungle and is cool enough to sleep at nights. As a part of itinerary, the jungle lodges and resorts provide two jeep safaris - every evening and early morning. Each Safari jeep is accompanied by a Naturalist who are experts in local wildlife, birds as well as trees and forest. We stayed for 2 nights and did 4 #safaris in all

Hogenakal Waterfalls - Chamarajanagar

Hogenakkal Falls is located about 150 -160 kms from Bangalore in South East direction, on the borders of two South Indian states - Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. It took us about 4 hours to reach their by cab booked through a prominent can service provider who charged us @ Rs.2700 for 300 kms with Rs.8.50/km extra if we exceed 300 kms. Since we left bit late from Bangalore (a delay of about 1 hour or so i.e, at 9:15 am), we could reach at the destination only during lunch time i.e, at about 1:30 pm. Well, this is our first trip that started with a hefty lunch (a delicious Tamilian lunch having rice, tasty sambhar which I craved for more & more, two types of vegetable curries, pickle and pappad). Then we set off straight to the jetty where tourists hire Coracle Rides on Cauvery River who quite gracefully and sometimes ferociously flows through the deep (10 to 30 feet depth) canyons flanked by high rising black, white and greyish rocky features on either side. The Coracle Ride was for approx. 1- 1 1/2 hours which was undoubtedly an experience to cherish, especially when you are a day's break from the hectic chores of city life. After Coracle Ride, we moved around the nearby falls taking snaps and feasting our eyes on some of the unique landscapes in South India (images of which I am surely going to put on sale through my Stock Photography Agency !).

Alpine Wineries (Guest House) - Chamarajanagar

This is one of the best wineries of the country which was started by Raghavendra Gowda in 2007. They serve the best wines to the wine lovers. Mr. Gowda is said to be one of the firsts to have planted grave trees in the Mysore- Mandya region and that is now spread over a 100 hectare area amidst the 500 hectare he owns in total. He has very carefully planted in his vineyard 12 varieties of grapes out of which 6 are red grapes and the other 6 are white grapes. He has managed to bring down some of the most advanced technologies to implement in his vineyard from around 15 different countries. The grapes are planted here very closely to maximize the taste. They also have a guest house for you when you feel a single tour is just not enough to know it all about the wines and wine making processes.
We step away from Nashik for this one, to Holesalu, in Mysore district, so this is another convenient day trip for Bangaloreans. It’s not as fancy a set-up as you’d see in some of the Nashik wineries, so you do need to call ahead and tell them what you want. They will take you through the process of wine-making and arrange a wine-tasting session in the wine cellar. They have six wines – three red and three white. The entire schedule will take about four hours if you opt to have lunch there, as well. You also have the charming option of camping out on the lawn in front of the lake if you’d like to indulge in a couple of bottles. Can’t drive back after that!
