We visited through Big Van on hire. The overall experience was good, we visited some of the waterfalls on the way. We enjoyed dancing and eating on the way. You can find Kamath Yatri Nivas on the way near about Mandya. We had breakfast over there. Also you can find Coffee Day and MacDonalds there. Try to take your own eatable things as sometimes you find the things costly on the way. Going by own car or even by bus is a good option.

BR Hills is a short getaway trip from Bangalore. We have to take the Chamarajnagar Route for BR Hills to enjoy the forest. If we are lucky we may even spot the ever elusive Tiger or a Leopard. Deer, Elephants and Bison are common sightings. Please don’t speed on the forest roads and don’t honk. Nearby place from Chamarajnagar is Terekanambi which has an old Varadaraja temple.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.

Things to Do

Biligiri Rangan Hills got its name most probably from the large, white rock face that holds the temple of Lord Rangaswamy.

Apart from drowning in the beauty of these hills, sightseeing in B R Hills involves taking in the awesome fresh, pure air here among other things. Jungle safaris, trekking through the forests, fishing in the rivers, coracle boat rides and river rafting are just a few of the activities of the area.

Accommodation
