Bangalore or Bengaluru, also known as the Silicon valley of India, will greet you with dreamy weather, Carnatic fusion melodies, a signature breakfast of masala dosa and filter coffee, and notorious traffic. Visit classic attractions such as the Bangalore castle known for its Tudor-style architecture and Tipu Sultan’s summer palace that dates back to the 17th century. To get your art fix, you could head to the fascinating Venkatappa Art Gallery. One of the more popular things to do in Bangalore is to take a walk through the green spaces of the 19th century old Cubbon Park, that were once the reason why Bangalore was known as the Garden City. Bangalore also serves as a comfortable cohabitation of tradition and modernisation that can be seen throughout the places to visit in the city, with throngs of vibrant Kannada temples coexisting with budding start-ups. Travel to Bangalore for the lively cafes, quirky shops and a fascinating contemporary culture. Vidhana Soudha, the Neo-Dravidian granite palace is also must visit places for the architecture aficionados. Tourists can head to the much revered Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR), for authentic south Indian food and Toit’s, the brick-walled microbrewery for a cold beer. Read More
And then we realized that we have to get back to our normal routine. We checked out post breakfast and headed back to Bangalore. And luckily we saw few wild elephants when we were crossing the forest.All together it was like a real good cup of tea with a little masala of adventure, sweetness of leisure and a slight ginger flavour of the musical nights.Bangalore to Vythri Village Resort : 300 Km via Mysore
The science of nightlife was earlier explained in case of Hyderabad, but Bengaluru is the ultimate boss of nighclubs in the entire South India. With 5-star nightclubs everywhere to huge international bands performing there day in and out, this city is one of the very best if you're a sucker for endless parties. When it comes to the list of India nightlife, Bengaluru is no. 4 on the list.Tripoto's top 3 of the city: No Limmits Lounge and Club, i-Bar, and High Ultra Lounge.Average expenditure for two: Rs. 3,000Read more about the city.
Day5:It was the last day of our sojourn and we were up around 6 a.m. to bid adieu to the other riders. With that out of the way, we resumed our ride towards Bangalore. Everyone wanted to reach Bangalore early, so we stopped only for tea and light snacks in between. We reached Bangalore at around 4 p.m. with everyone dispersing towards their respective homes
Our ride started from Skanda Motors in Rajaji Nagar, Bengaluru. The seven of us started the journey at 8 in the morning. To shrug off the sleepiness we all had a cup of coffee in the morning. Needless to say, we were all excited and geared up for the ride. Two of the riders started from Mumbai towards Goa and 4 other riders, on their Mahindra Mojo, joined us in Goa.
Nothing like a good trip over the weekend after a long boring energy sucking week!! Not until 6:00 PM did I have the faintest idea that I will be off to Kodaikanal for the weekend. It was just a usual hot summer evening in Bangalore. I get back to my room and jump into my bed to catch my sleep. But I toss and twirl trying to find that comfort position and then I fail. I lay awake staring at the ceiling letting my mind wander at will. All I remember next was browsing Redbus for tickets. And there it was: two tickets to Kodaikanal, like it was saved for me and someone I was sure will accompany me. I called up a friend who was no less crazy than me, and booked us both a trip to kodai. Kodaikanal is a hill station in Tamil Nadu, its name translated as "Gift of the Forest" and it is indeed. I have covered hill stations in South, but Kodaikanal has a raw charm that beats all the others with its less anglicized landscapes and mist covered forests. It is less commercialised and well preserved and oddly enough with no plastic leftovers in sight.Locally known as the Princess of Hill Stations, The city is accessible by road, train or by air. The cheapest being train(Of course depending upon where you are travelling from). The nearest airports are in Madurai, Coimbatore and Tiruchirapally. Nearest railway stations are Palani (the ride uphill from Palani is beyond gorgeous), Kodaikanal Road Station and Madurai Junction. Buses run uphill at intervals taking you to Kodaikanal.We decided to take the bus from Bangalore to avoid crossovers and bought our tickets for 850 Rs (you will get it for around 600 Rs if you book three weeks ahead). We also had our room booked on Tripadvisor to avoid the hassle of looking around for rooms.It was 7:30 PM when we were done booking our rooms and with all the uncertainity of catching our bus, waddling through Bangalore's infamous traffic,we packed our bags and left.We did make it to the bus, almost missing it. And as we settled in, we realised we were in seats with no leg space. Either the bus catered only to zero sized figurines or we had missed how much our thighs had grown horizontally over the lazy week days at work. Nevertheless, we were two happy souls on our way to Kodaikanal - the land of magic mushrooms.
Catched bus the same night towards bangalore for i had to attend a 3 day conference. Tried Oyo Rooms during my stay at bangalore for 800 per night and found it to be value for money! from amenities like laundry, water, food to cleanliness, from toiletries standards to AC rooms to cozy beds to furniture used and interiors, everything was beyond my expectations!
This is exactly what I went through when I finally began the most awaited trip of my life, yet. After years of dreaming, months of planning and days of shopping, we were finally off to the Land of High Passes by road from Bengaluru on our bikes! A journey spanning 10 states over a period of 21 days… Dreams do come true!My other half once said “Let’s wake up in a new city every day!” And I said “Let’s do it!” ;)Although, this article or the pictures are going to do absolutely no justice to what we experienced, I hope it inspires you to take up such journeys to experience the varied landscapes that India has to offer, to taste a different cuisine every day, to learn a new language every day!DAY 1:Bangalore – Satara (730 kms): I couldn’t sleep all night, heart brimming with excitement. Before I knew it, my alarm was ringing and it was time to wake up. We all got dressed, loaded the saddle bags and rucksacks on to our bikes (Thank you bungee cords), geared up, bid goodbyes and we were off.! :)

Day 17Started in morning by 7 am for Flight to Chennai and Kolkata flight.---------------------------------------------------------
Chennai....An old metro city...Fully developed place of south india there are so many places for roaming like....
The first view of coast was from the air. A white fin stuck into our view of the dancing azure ocean as it enclosed land protectively. Deeper into our sight was an ocean of dense humanity clustered in buildings and houses that were coloured in pinks, yellows, blues and greens. Shortly after, we’d landed at the Chennai airport.
From Mahabalipuram we go to the Chennai... took a flight and Fly away with lots of memories of beautiful places and found some peace in south region...South is the best place to visit with family friends or solo(Very Safe Region) Here one thing is common if you go anywhere you will find something beautiful...
Waiting for the boarding announcement we pondered about the course of action for the day. We planned to get to Udagamandalam (or should I say Ooty) from Coimbatore, and were brainstorming about how to get there. I was an advocate of renting a car - it would give us a good deal of flexibility while travelling, and would feel like the road trips we used to take when my sister and I were kids. My parents were more interested in hiring the services of a driver, as it would give my dad an opportunity to sit back and relax. After a brief discussion, we agreed on renting a Hyundai i20 from Zoomcars for the next 3 days and made the payment en route to the aero-bridge.
DAY-10 ChennaiThe challenge which was accepted and successfully accomplished.The goal was to cover 5000kms but I have covered 6410kms in 10days with total amount of Rs4500.This was by far my greatest ever accomplishment. Changed my perspective of lot of things. Made me a more tougher person. Taught be how to be without a mobile for a couple of days. Talk to real people and hear their perspectives. Made me so grounded. I'm so glad that I did this. Thanks to everyone
The roads are pretty smart during this a part of the planet. The three huge metros particularly Chennai, Hyderabad and the city are utterly connected to through specific four-way roads. This triangular affiliation of roads covers many tons of if not thousands of kilometres. Most of the most effective traveler spots will be reached out simply from branches that come out of those roads. Safety place with friendly folks. Southern a part of Indian landmass is one among the safest ever with friendly people that are well-known for his or her warm reception. In contrast to northern a part of the country, these folks speak English all right. This improves most of your troubles in visiting a distant country.

I had been planning to explore places in and around Chennai as soon as my internship got confirmed (which happened to be in Feb). Mahabalipuram (Mamallapuram) and Pondicherry had been on the top of the list for a while. I decided to end my 8-weekend long procrastination and finally came up with an impromptu plan with my cousin Rahul.

A fascinating blend of the Hindu and Muslim cultures, every frame of Hyderabad - the joint capital of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, pulsates with vivid heritage. The metropolitan section of the city comprises of the hilltop Golconda, the modern city of Secunderabad and the old city of Hyderabad which are separated by an artificial lake - Hussain Sagar. On the western end lies the Hi-Tech city or the cyber hub of the city. One of the main attractions of the old city of Hyderabad are its frantic bazaars swarming with chai and spice traders. Among the other places to visit in the city, the iconic Charminar built in 1591 to commemorate Hyderabad’s founding, the opulent Chowmahalla palace and one of the world’s largest mosques - the Mecca Masjid are the most popular. The art enthusiasts could head to the Kalakriti and Birla art galleries. As one of the must-dos in the city, plan a day trip to the Ramoji Film City (Telangana’s film industry - Tollywood). Also, no trip to Hyderabad will ever be complete without the delectable trifecta of Irani chai, Osmania biscuits and the quintessential biryani. Read More
Clicked some pictures around and started my journey back to hyderabad at 2pm and reached around 5:40pm as it was a peak hour.It was my another lovely road trip which i enjoyed alot. Keep reading my blogs, Thankyou.
Shall I tell you what are the benefits of outings/travel? Travel increases your productivity at your workplace. It sharpens the minds of your children and makes them more responsive and responsible. And most importantly, your wife will become less fussy (...do you still need any more reason to travel...?)Cover Picture Credit:http://www.telanganatourism.gov.in/partials/destinations/nature-discovery/jayashankar-bhoopalpally/laknavaram.html"A Good Marriage would be between a Blind Wife and a Deaf Husband" as quoted by Michel de Montaigne,...but since God didn't make all couples that way, the only solution is to travel :)
A car in hand and a nice lovely weekend is the perfect combination for an outing. What more does one ask for? And Hyderabad is blessed with vicinities that enchant. Be it Kuntala Waterfalls at a distance of 260 KMs or Nagarjuna Sagar at a distance of 160 KMs. Hyderabad is ensconced cosily between Karnataka, Maharastra and Andhra Pradesh. This melange of cultures is always unique. It’s the differences in these cultures that gives a distinctive identity to each one of us and thereby makes us special.Today, let me take you to Laknavaram Lake, near Warangal in Telangana State. Just 224 KMs from Hyderabad and it can be reached by Road in roughly 4 hours. Add up another half an hour for a Tea break. Of late, this place seems to slowly gain popularity and its due recognition. Telangana Tourism maintains this lake and it has a Resort, if you wish to stay back for the night. This lake is surrounded by a lush green forest and ornamental mountains as the backdrop; it sure leaves a spell on your senses.
Just one casual chat on WhatsApp, this afternoon, with my friend Sumana Rajah, who stays in Canberra, Australia was enough to plan my trip to this wonderful country of Kangaroos. I didn’t know it would happen in such a flash. Unplanned trips or trips planned in a jiffy are the ones that end up being the most memorable. It was a casual broaching of the topic and she was game on my visit. There was no second thought whatsoever. I had made up my mind to see this wonderful piece of place on earth. After all, this is going to be very special to me, in a sense, since this would be my first flight out of my country India. Wow, can’t believe my senses. A feeling of déjà vu envelops me.Destinations should always delight and fill a sense of surprise in you. It's always the culture and the cuisine, that fills up the aura. Food venues speak about the people of the region. Autumn fills the air with mysticism. And I am told Canberra is mystically beautiful during autumn. The season of autumn has its own charm.Before she could tell me, what all I would be seeing when I reach there, I decided to browse the net and make my home work. After all, foreign trips are costly and one should make the most out of it. Baar Baar thodi mouka milta hai, life mein!The cheapest return ticket flashed at INR 55, 132 for the last week of October 2017 on Skyscanner, by a Malaysian + Qantas Airline combo, with two stops at KUL and SYD. I think this is the cheapest I can lay my hands on, as on today ie., 17.08.2017. I think, Skyscanner comes pretty handy when it comes to scanning cheap flight tickets, especially for international destinations.Then, I had to do my bit of homework for the Tourist visa for Australia. A Tourist Visa allows people of other countries to visit Australia on a holiday, recreation or to visit family and friends. Visa exemption or Visa-free access is not applicable to Indian Passport holders. From 1st July, 2017 Indian nationals are able to lodge visitor visa (subclass 600 – Tourist Stream) applications online. The subclass 600 visitor visa has a number of other stream options including the sponsored Family stream which are lodged and processed in Australia. Apart from other requirements for a tourist visa, one needs to have a valid health insurance to cover any healthcare costs during the stay in Australia.VFS Global extends assistance services for applying online.Further details can be had by visiting the link: http://www.vfsglobal.com/Australia/India/contact_us.html
The Bhongiri Fort was built during the 10th Century on a single Rocky Hill, by the Western Chalukyan king, Tribhuvana Malla Vikram Aditya VI. Historical structures of the Kings reflect the glory of the era, like a mirror, even after years of decadence.One Day Picnic Spots around the City are always all time favorite Getaways for working couples and families who cannot afford a long vacation to far off distant lands, even within the country. It’s here, to such people in and around Hyderabad, Bhongiri comes as a respite. You can go on any weekend, unwind, relax, indulge in rock climbing, inhale fresh air, and return back the same evening, and all this, without a hole in your pocket.Children should be taught to love Nature. They are so much addicted to electronic gadgets that they hardly spend time in the lap of Nature. Mobile is the biggest enemy of the present generation. Laptop, Tablet, Mobile and or TV – Keep your children away from them all, at least for a while. Nurture them to love Nature.Forts are usually not built on plains, but on hilly terrains, so that the elevation helps the Soldiers keep an eye at a distance to see if the enemy is on its way to invade. That was the technicality.What makes these Forts alluring to the Tourist/Wanderer is their strategic locations and their elevations, which afford a bird’s eye view.Last Sunday, we decided to spend our day at this Fort. It’s just 50 KMs from Hyderabad on Warangal Highway. Recently, the Highway has been widened and well carpeted which makes the ride smoother and faster. With just one Toll Gate, you need not worry about shelling lots of money paying the toll fee, which is a great relief. I am one of those who hate paying Toll fees, rather, I would, someday want to start a crusade against this atrocity on travelers.
Me & my batch we love to travel and we always roaming in the city without any plan almost we covered all places in the city ..,recently we visited Ananthagiri Hills its was just amazing place.,, this time we decided to go out & little bit far from city & we planed especially for TrekkingWe started from Hyderabad around morning 8:00 am. After finishing our breakfast, we started for Panagal, We reached to wanaparthy around 11 am.. from their Panagal is 15 Km ,we stopped our car at Beautiful Place its Environment is full of Greenery, we spent their 30 min. we enjoyed the fresh air & Green fields , we had Selfie Session and again we started our journey to Panagal by following the Google map and asking the local people (one of craziest & Adventures part of this outing is we did not know the routes, we just followed the Google Maps & asking the Local People, in some areas there was no signal to show the routes at the same time there was no local people to suggest the routes, you just imagine what’s your feeling if you are In that situation….) finally we reached to PANAGAL at 12:15 pm.
Wow what an amazing time we had, going all the way to the closest gateway from Hyderabad, unexpectedly, during the time where nature is at its best, the monsoons.After a long long time we friends met for a casual night out, had a lot of chit chatting but after some time, discussion were getting boring. I had to take a break in between for an hour for celebrating one of my friends birthday and by the time I returned the plan for 'go karting' was on. We went all the way to Shamshabad airport for the same. Did some amazing race and then left the place but we were longing for more fun. So within 10 mins we decided to drive till Ananthagiri where the barren land of summer turns lively and the drive through forest to reach the destination is truly an experience one has to get once in lifetime.

Before the tropical air hits you here, an uncanny sense of time travel does, as you scan the historic Vijayanagar's devastatingly beautiful ruins and temples spread across the boulder-strewn landscape. The ancient capital of the Vijayanagara Empire (1343-1565), which has now become a favourite hipster holiday destination, is best explored on foot or bicycle. It has a lot of famous attractions such as the Hemakuta Hill, home to the ancient scattered ruins and a monolithic sculpture of Hindu God Vishnu, along with Hampi Bazaar, once an ancient trading spot for horses, silk, cows, precious stones and now a hub of handicraft shops and little restaurants, with the 15th century Virupaksha temple at its western end and the 16th century Vittala temple at its eastern end. Sule Bazaar and the Achyutaraya temple is also a must visit. This historic expedition can get tiresome and overwhelming for many, and the village in contrast maintains a very laid back atmosphere, with innumerable guest houses spread around, some even with a fascinating spartan setting, costing no more than 300 rupees. Just like its ruins, an ancient festival called the Hampi Utsav has also been kept alive since the Vijayanagar reign and is celebrated annually in November, with light and sound shows, music and dance performances, all boasting of the Kannadigas' rich culture, set against the backdrop of Hampi's ruins. The Mango Tree restaurant is a quaint place reached via passing through a banana plantation. Other good places to eat include Prince Restaurant, Goan Corner Restaurant and Laughing Buddha, popular for South Indian, Chinese, Israeli, Tibetan, and usual vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, enjoyed by the riverside.

Hampi can be visited any time of the year, but if you want to be bedazzled with colours of the culture, visit Hampi during January, because you can be a part of the celebrations at Hampi Utsav, a festival of bonhomie – a congregation of various events to highlight the glorious past of this empire. The cultural extravaganza is a spectacle to behold. It’s a three-day long carnival. Festivities include classical & traditional dance performances, skits and dramas, fireworks, puppet shows, and spectacular parades. Book your tickets accordingly.How to Reach Hampi:Hampi is 353 KMs from Bangalore and 74 KMs from Ballari in Karnataka. The nearest commercial Airport is Hubli/Bangalore. The nearest Railway Station is at Hospet which is 13 KMs away. Hampi has a number of resorts and home stays. There are direct trains and buses to Hospet from Goa, Hubli, Ballari, Hyderabad and Bangalore. Once you land in Hospet, you can check in at any Hotel there. Hospet is dotted with numerous Hotels, Star, Economy and budget.Hampi is at a distance of 13 KMs from Hospet and you have hourly buses which ply from Hospet Bus Station. Or you can hire three wheeler Autos. Equip yourself with a good quality camera, because what you see remains etched in your mind, but what you see should also be immortalized in pictures so that others, who cannot make it to Hampi, can at least enjoy it through your pictures.When in Hampi, don’t miss to see the following:Achyutaraya Temple,BadaviLingaElephant StableHazara rama Temple ComplexJain TempleLotus MahalVittala TempleVirupaksha TempleZanana EnclosureArchaeological Museum at KamalapuraTungabhadra Dam and Nandanavana GardenJapanese Garden at MunirabadHaving soaked yourself in the magic of the Hampi rocks, its time to meet the flowers and say hello to them. Tungabhadra Dam welcomes you with flowers at its Nandanavana Garden built on the lines of Brindavan Garden and on the other side of Tungabhadra Dam you have Munirabad with a Japanese Garden. Don’t miss it.
To explore only Hampi 2 days are enough.The hotel staff arranged auto for us we reached Hampi in 10min . After getting there we saw tourists riding mopeds and bicycles,we enquired about the rental they said only one shop is renting and unfortunately by the time we reached all bicycles and mopeds are hired out(be early for vehicles by 7a.m) shop is near virupakshi temple.It's about to be off season there and the weather was too sunny. Mostly 80 percent of the tourists were foreigners and the other side we find many restaurants and shops in narrow lanes and its called Hampi Bazaar. The food points are themed differently and the food is outstanding, the other side of tungabhadra river also we got plenty of eating out options.
For adventure lovers who think climbing the boulders of Hampi during the monsoons will be pleasant, should be ready for a surprise. Karnataka receives a huge amount of rainfall from the south-west monsoon and most of its touristy destinations see a wave of humidity. Imagine going for a hike up to the ruins of Hampi and coming back in a state that makes it seem like you went for an outdoor steam and sauna bath instead!Visit Hampi in January, when it is extremely pleasant and you won't sweat too much.
Day five the train travels to Hospet, the station you de-board at to visit Hampi. Hampi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a place to truly understand and appreciate the ancient architecture and art of the Southern Indian rulers. The capital of Vijaywada Dynasty, Hampi currently is one of the most popular destinations to visit. It is identified by a humongous stone chariot, in the verandah of Vijaya Vittala temple complex. This is also the stone chariot after which the train was named.Sights Covered: Hampi sightseeing - Hema Kuta Hill, Virupaksha temple, Queens Bath, elephant stables, royal enclosure, Hazara Rama Temple, Vijaya Vittala temple complex, and Tungabhadra river.Meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner on board.Timings: 8.30am for Hampi sightseeing, 3.30 pm for Vijaya Vittala temple complex and 5pm at Tungabhadra river.
As we started nearing Hampi, Centuries looked down upon us. Being amidst Centuries of stories, of ideas, of people that weren’t but their work that was still around. This was overwhelming. The rickshaw-wala dropped us at the town, on the banks of the beautiful Tungabhadra river, where we had to lug our backpacks into the ferry and go across the river.Both the times in Hampi, we stayed at Mowgli Guest House in a small hut overlooking the beautiful paddy fields. Many a sunsets were seen lounging here, drinking ‘lemon ginger honey’ and soaking the sunset sky in.
The easiest and cheapest way to visit Hampi is to book a bus from Bangalore (use redbus.in).Its only an overnight journey and you will reach Hampi quite fresh and active. On reaching Hampi, the only means of transportation up to your home stay would be an auto.
My first coracle ride was at 2 am in the middle of a chilling night from Sanapur to Hampi ,crossing the tranquil Tungabhadra. Me along with my five friends had gone to Sanapur from Hampi by taking a motor boat early in the day for spending some time there, as Sanapur was one of the most happening places around. So by completing all the so called 'To do check list' in Sanapur we came back to the banks of Tungabhadra hoping for a boat to take us over to Hampi as our hotel rooms were there. But there was no boat and only a coracle laid there in the dark welcoming us and and a small boy was on board with an oar in his hand.The coracle thing was not in our checklist and we had to improvise it, if we had to make it to the other side of the river and get to sleep. We hopped into the coracle after negotiating the night rates. Yeah! you know it, nights are costly.The coracle thing was made out of interlaced bamboo strips from side to the bottom. Obviously I coudn't see whether it was made of bamboo or plastic or whatever in the middle of a dark night . But you know what ,I figured it out the next day, and the day after as it turned out , I had never waited for a motor boat again in that trip, because that coracle ride in the middle of the night was pure bliss. It was not much far from floating in Tungabhadra .
Hampi in Karnataka, which is a group of ruins and monuments, used to originally be the go to place for wall climbers. But this pretty much changed when bouldering enthusiasts were overtaken by the crowds who decided to give 'revisiting history' a chance. So many Israeli cafes have opened up here, and intoxication is quite common. Hampi isn't completely done and dusted. There's still time to save this beautiful heritage site from the wrath of unwanted, careless tourists.

Known all over the country for the sacred Sri Venkateswara Temple, Tirupati is located in the Chittoor District of Andhra Pradesh. The temple is actually located in Tirumala along with a number of other temples, though Sri Venkateshwara Temple or Tirupati Balaji is the main attraction for visitors. Tirumala is always bustling with energy owing to the many tourists as well as the number of festivals celebrated here. Legend has it that one should visit Sri Varahaswami temple before visiting Sri Venkateswaraswami. Varahaswami owned the seven hills and agreed to give them to Sri Venkateswaraswami with the demand that he too should be worshipped. And for this, Sri Venkateswaraswami asked his pilgrims to visit the Sri Varahaswami temple before visiting him. For first timers there are a few things you should keep in mind including appropriate clothing, no alcohol and carrying extra locks for your rooms as well as vehicles. Before visiting the temple, you'll need darshan tickets, which are available at various TTD counters across the country. A beautiful place with immense spiritual energy, Tirupati is a must visit.

Thiruthani to ballari (431km) :The last day was a sore and boring one. Not many places to see. Just a long ride back home. The roads were some of the worst we've encountered. We reached tirupati temple town by 12pm and headed towards kadiri. After about 9hrs of riding. We finally reached ballari by 10.30pm! The odometer read 3050kms! This was the longest trip i have taken on bike!

It’s a must visit place. It will take at least 5-6 hrs to come out, once you are inside the Temple. People from all over India come for the Darshan of Tirupati balaji. Now it’s time for our destination and my home town –“Visakhapatnam”. Till then we didn’t know how we would reach Vizag. No bookings, nothing. It was 8pm. Then we decide we will hop in Vijayawada and from there we will go to Vizag. We got a Volvo bus from Tirupati to Vijayawada around 9pm. We were really tired. It was damn hot. 12th night went in traveling to Vijayawada.
