1) I am residing in Bangalore.
2) Have already done the following in recent past: Mysore, Ooty,Kotagiri,Coorg,Waynad,Chikamagalur,Mangalore, Goa,Kodai, Munnar, Pondicherry

Appreciate your suggestions on any new location to spend the time away from scorching summer heat.

@Waseem: Thanks for your suggestion. I missed out to mention Yercaud in the list. We had done this about 7yrs ago. Can give another dash though

Absolutely! It was also the inspiration for our trip - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...alow-more.html (Dizzy Drive® : Wonderful Valparai (enchanted by Sinnadorai's Bungalow) and more!)

@kirantp - Do look up the Valparai general information thread as well. Sinnadorai is an excellent place to stay though a bit expensive.

Any recommendations for hotel in Hubli,karnataka for a night stay? Hotel should be within 3-4 kms radius from Bhavani nagar,hubli. A clean hotel with AC rooms with reasonable pricing would be preferred. Please suggest! TIA

Not sure if budget would fit you. Clarks Inn is the best place in Hubli. Its about 4 km from Ankola road exit from Hubli bypass. Though I am dont know how far its from the you place you refer to. But this is one of the best places in Hubli.

Clarks inn is way too costly! Room rent of around 4-5K when i checked on a couple of sites.
