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.
Day 2: (to Mananthavady)Reached Coimbatore at 4.30 am. Hired a auto to bus stand. Boarded a TNSETC bus to Phalgath. Reached Phalgath by 6.30 am. Had breakfast. Boarded a bus to Kozhikode (Fast Passenger). Reached Kozhikode by noon. Had Kozhikode birayani (special dish of the town). Boarded a bus to Mananthavady. Reached the destination by 4pm. (all journey by government bus as they are more secure than pvt ones). Hired an auto to Forest Range office to enquire about Tholpetty WLS (wild life sanctuary). As instructed from office we travelled to Tholpetty WLS. Amazing view as its Kerala Karnataka border and a very long queue for safari tickets. I enquired for a wild trek for tomorrow. By the way unlike rest of India, the Kerala government wildlife officials were very polite and respectable. He replied, currently the trek has been cancelled due to a man died of elephant attack yesterday. The trek was awesome indeed. Inside forest with animals all around. We will be escorted by armed forest rangers. We missed it. Due to long queue we understood that its not possible to get a ticket to safari today. We returned to Mananthavady and hired a room.
