Default info and route to manchanbele dam - bangalore


I wanted to do a day trip to Manchanbele, and am looking for route information, photos of the place, any other interesting places around the dam.

Has anyone done this route recently in the last 3 months ?

Any info greatly appreciated.

Although I have not gone till Machinabele Dam but I have gone to Big Banyan Tree, dam is another 7 km from there.

On mysore road once you pass Rajarajeshwari college, there is a right turn for Big banyan Tree, it is marked now. After the turn you will get a railway crossing. Immediately after crossing there is the UB group McDowells factory on your right (thats the indication that you are in the correct route). Another 10km from there is big banyan tree.

Route is not that great but motorable. Similar road conditions will extend till machinabele dam.
