"Leisurely drive through Nagarhole Forest"

We went to Wayanad by Bangalore- Mysore- Hunsur- Nagarhole- Kutta- Wayanad route. The idea was to beat traffic and have a leisurely drive through the forest. It is recommended to fill fuel at Hunsur or before since once you enter Nagarhole forest for about 50 km and there are no petrol bunks. The roads were in good condition throughout. We could spot deer, jackals &and peacock on our way. Entry to the forest road is from 6 am to 6 pm only.

Initially we were lost in the forest area around Karnataka Border. But, we could make our way. Waynad is really exotic and the roads are well-maintained all along. Though the signages are not that accurate, they are quite okay to keep a track. Thanks to the Tourism department and the locals are helpful too. One can enjoy a trip without hassles.

Then we went to Tiger Reserve Sanctuary near to Mysore but it was closed by 10 am, and we reached by 10:15 am, fully disap ...Read More

We had an extremely bad driver, he was not at all friendly and so our journey wasn\\\'t all that great. But we did try to have our fun by playing some games in the car. The roads are great throughout. There\\\'s only a stretch near the resort which is a little bad but that is hardly 1 km. If you can travel by road in Bangalore, you will love the roads to Wayanad. Not many very good restaurants on the way. Best is to probably eat at Mysore. We had seen Mysore earlier so we didn\\\'t get out to se ...Read More

We were 16 persons travelling from Bangalore to Wayanad in a 20 seater bus and it was all comfortable. We have arranged breakfast from Kamat Yatri Nivas and when we arrived there, it was packed ready to take and the service was very good. Only delay we experienced is at the check-post at Muthanga where our vehicle was stranded for payment of entry tax to Kerala. There was only one clerk available and he was collecting the tax at snail\'s speed. During our return journey, the AC unit gave us s ...Read More
