Nandi hills again??? I might have memorized the exact location of each pothole and speedbreaker by now We just did it last Sunday also.
1 problem is - at Nandi hills, bikes have to be parked at the entrance arch, while cars can proceed to the top. Group will get split up if a few of us decide to get bikes.

Kanva reservoir sounds good. Any other place also is fine with me.

Nandi hills sounds good. Haven't been there in a long time.

There is Krishnagiri dam too which is a nice place to park your cars and chit chat for some time.

Sir, SOBC not allowed


Some places I can think of :

1. Manchinpalli dam - 40 Kms
2. Kanakpura lake - 40 Kms
3. Muthathi - 95Kms
4. Talakad - 136Kms
5. Hogenekal - 125Kms

If distance is not an issue :

6. Horsely Hills - 186Kms
7. Gopalswamy betta - 250Kms.
8. Bandipur/Ooty - Just a crazy thought

I hope you are referring to Manchanabele dam. I was there last month.
Arkavathy has enough water. Any one who plans to take a AWD it is also fun taking it close to the water.
A couple of snaps.

Sunrise. (Its actually risen. Just that it was behind a hillock.

No fun. You can drive up to there, but there's not much up there, not even a decent hotel for food.

This may be funny but how about an early morning(4am) drive to Jog and come back by mid-night sounds? Rain has started so we can expect good view!

Man Asdon, you are even more crazier You have beaten Aviorp's idea of Bandipur/Ooty by a mile. 800kms return trip in less than 24 hours

If rain has started, how about Shivanasamudram?

well its 8 hrs drive up and down, and lets say spending in sorroundings for 6 to 7 hrs, including rests, we can easily come back by mid-night. The road is very good, and many photographic locations , think about it. 1st May is arround.
