How come no one is considering Kabini river lodge of JLR ? Its expensive when compared to the other JLR properties, but is pretty good. Remember catching a glimpse of the first ever tiger i saw in the jungle there!

Great chance to meet all of you in person, once we finalize the date - I will confirm on the availability as I work on weekends... there are some places suggested, I can add another place: Horsley hills as room rents (AP tourism) will be around Rs.2000. I visited8 years back so if anyone visited recently can comment/recommend.

Few of my collegues recently went to masinagudi and stayed at -> Inn The Wild
They have very good review about this place and for them it costs ~2000/day including food as it was a bulk booking. We have to park our cars little away from the resort and their vehicle will ferry us to the resort.

Thanks
Rajesh

@Sriraj: I know a guy but he will not be able to handle more than 10 people at his place and the price is also a little on the higher side.

Could we add a poll to the thread to choose which place is preferred by most, i am ok with anywhere as long as its team BHP meet. Can drive <500 Kms easily hence most are in the radar for me. Although i have already been to a few places but going there again would not be a problem.

Are we all coming with family right?, i am with family.

I wish to join the meet if it is sometime in Feb.
My friend recently acquired a preowned lancer and we were planning to check it on a long highway drive.
We will make use of this meet to check it and see fellow bhpians

Guys lets close in the dates first, how about 18 & 19th Feb?

About places, I think a jungle arround hills is comming as a location of choice from the maximum - we have the following options
  1. Bandipur (too common)
  2. Masinagudi (Good)
  3. Kabini(Expensive)
  4. Bhadra Wildlife + Chikmaglur(Good)
  5. Nill Giri Hills(Good)
  6. Shakleshpur Ghats(Good)
  7. Nagarahole(Already done one Team BHP Event)
We wish to do it as a family event, and as Janurary is the investment month for most of us (Budget should be considered as one of the criteria)

Non Jungle Places
  1. Chitradurga
  2. Hampi
  3. Ooty
  4. Coorg
  5. Mangalore(need to leave by Friday night)
Give you say guys...

  8. BR Hills is also be an Option as somebody suggested

One of my suggestion: Let's keep it with minimum distance from Bangalore so that we have more time to talk each other.

I can try with few places i know in Masinagudi but would require the number and dates for it. I would suggest finalize the dates first.

Another Suggestion,
http://www.thegreatoutdoorsindia.com/index.htm

We can book the whole place exclusively for us, if the numbers are good.

Woah a Bangalore Megha Meet.....Boy, this should be exciting.

Asdon, the places that you have listed are all within "Driveable" distance from Bangalore and pretty good in their own rights.

But, was wondering if few things could be clarified:
  • DATE - Asdon, 18/19 Feb sounds perfect for now. I would not complain if its on 11/12 Feb as well. I am sure we will have lot more BHPIANS making it.
  • Since, its a Family trip, lets also ensure the place is "Women & Children" friendly.
  • As anujmishra has mentioned, the main reason for the trip will be to meet the fellow-bhpians and family. So, please lets not tire ourselves with a Very long drive. Rather a long drive and a Great time together.
  • Last but probably the most important. Lets waste "Loads of Time" than Money together, if you guys know what I mean!!

I would vote for Masinagudi. For just one reason. Hill climb challenge!

Masinagudi is an ideal starting point for an "impromptu" time trial hill climb challenge to Ooty via Kallatti, and those infamous hairpins.

Masinagudi sounds good. One other suggestion - There is a place called RottiKallu in Sakleshpur. Its around 220Kms from here and costs around 2200/- per head.
