Away from the city traffic, staying in the grassland habitat in a tree house makes a perfect weekend getaway. Hollas Halla, a farm house located about 60 km from Bangalore in Ujjaini village. The only things that surround you are the vivid floral nature and an utter silence of the woods.

What awaits at Hollas Halla?

A combination of adventurous and peaceful stay, witnessing a refined image of nature with friends or family.

- Under the Moonlight

"When you want to feel like Bear Grylls, you gotta live like him."

1. Start your evening by discovering some of your amazing cooking skills. You can get grill and coal to barbecue. There is an option of getting vegetarian food over there as well, but apparently, there's no fun in it.

2. Share your stories over a drink near the bonfire.

3. Away from the city lights, spot the constellations. The crystal clear sky makes the stargazing more awesome.

4. Crash into the tents or the tree house, once you start feeling sleepy. Sleeping bags inside, make it super comfortable.

- Eternal Sunshine

1. Get outside your shelter and take a look at the rising sun.

3. Splurge into the mud sport arena. It would feel dirty at first, but once you step in the mud, the fall and the stickiness brings up a lot of fun. Volleyball and Tug of war doubles the fun and madness.

4. Slide and swing straight into the pool and take a swim in the stagnant water.

Brunch on the house

A light and delicious South Indian cuisine awaits at the table to help you over the hangover from the night's meal.

What things to carry along?

- Portable Charger, as that is a mandatory thing for every outing.

- Speaker, because bonfire is always incomplete without some good music. Live music is always more appreciated if you have some good musicians in the house.

- Carry the food along with the ingredients if you are planning to barbecue. (I would definitely insist on that.)

- Take a good stock of drinks. A bit of a hit under the stars gets you in a totally different ambiance.

- Do not step into the wild without proper shoes. When you are planning to go out in the woods, you got to have a proper outfit.

- Swimming outfit to take a peaceful dip in the pool.

- Sunglasses is a must at a farm house.

When to go?

Anytime whenever the Bangalore weather is decent. Preferably temperature around 20-25 °C.

How to reach?

Take a car or bike, and google maps will lead you to the destination. Almost 80% of the journey is a straight highway, which is comfortable for an ideal road trip. Last 10-15 km takes down to a single road which gets pitch dark at night, as there are no street lights near the village. With an average pace, it can be covered in 20 minutes.
