Default 1 and 1/2 day trip from Bangalore?

Hi,

This is what that is available to us during weekends. So need some suggestions.

We want to start on Sat 1 - 2 pm and be back by Sun 9 - 10 pm. A 4hrs+ drive is ok. We need a good place to stay as we travel with kids. Here are the places I have visited (I dont mind visiting them again, but a different location is always welcomed)- coorg (kakkabe, madhekeri,kutta etc), chikmagalur (kemmanagundi etc), mysore, hassan(sakleshpur, belur etc), wayanad (sulthan bathary, kalpetta, lakhidi), Yercaud, Yellagiri. Havn't been to Bandipur/Mudumalai ( though passed thru it quiet a few times). Well that's it. I am running out of ideas.

Planning for 25th July weekend.
Thanks in advance.

How about a Monsoon drive to Ooty ( +Conoor, +RedHills). Should take 6-7 hours.

Been to Ooty (coonor, kotagiri etc) few times, and Red Hills might be closed during this time.

Will forests be a good option during monsoon? I never prefered forests with the rains due to insects, snakes etc.

Try Horsely Hill's 2.5 - 3 hrs drive from Bangalore nice place to relax; Accomodation needs to be booked through AP Tourism.

You can search for travelouges for more details and pictures.
