Hoskote is an industrial town, 21 kms from Bangalore on Old Madras road.

Dakshina Pinakini river runs through the town and a catchment area is referred as Hoskote lake.

Unlike Bellandur and Varthur water bodies this lake is not yet sullied with enviro waste.

And I was thrilled to learn Hoskote municipality imposes a fine of Rs 500 if any vendor/ retailer uses plastic in any form.

A good spot for birders and my search revealed two excellent blogs on the lake -

I was inspired by Vaibhav's blog http://bangalorecaptured.com/2013/02/04/hoskote-lake/

Followed up by browsing thru Sangeeta's blog

http://www.myworldfoodandtravel.com/2013/03/hoskote-lake-little-haven-for-birds.htmlk

Both the blogs are exhaustive with clear directions with an amazing array of captures.

 couldn't match their variety but it was worth spending a morning by Hoskote lake.

Here are some random clicks.

i reached Hoskote by 8 am. I now feel it is better to be there by 6.30 AM.

Breakfast at Sri Guru Nalapaka,is a decent and tasty start.
