You guys should consider KRS dam. Water will be released anytime soon.

Shivanasamudra after 2 days of KRS waters being released would be sweet!

Been to all the places on that list barring the resort, so I will end up getting confused trying to pick one . You guys decide which place you want. Do an informal vote here itself. If we wait for the poll options and voting on the thread and all that, it will go past this weekend, hehe.

How long are people ok to drive? just to look at options.
Distance is never an issue, especially for those with 'Live To Drive' stickers on their rides *lol*.

Good suggestion, but the only fly in the ointment is that Mysore road traffic avalanche. People would find the SH17 traffic anything but a relaxing drive. An alternative would be to take NH-209 detour to Mysore and KRS, but distance might be overkill.

At the rate Bangalore is expanding, water might have got over now, eh??

Its not that bad nowadays - I'm travelling every weekend on these roads and it doesn't take more than 2-2.15 hours to reach NICE road from Mysore. Even with sedate driving.

- KRS backwaters - 135 km, SH 17 Mysore (1)

- Hesarghatta grasslands - 50 km, off NH 4 before Nelamangala (Golden palms road) (1)
- Kanva reservoir - 60 km, off Mysore road, Ramanagaram


Updated list:

KarthikK - Abarth Punto EsseEsse / City AT
wins2807 - ???

Oh ok. I was actually referring to Sunday morning rush (towards Mysore). Especially in the mornings it has become like outer ring road. In fact worse than that. 2 weeks ago I'd been to Ranganthittu and thereabouts; on both going and returning directions, we got royally stuck at that Ramanagara signal for more than 20-25 mins. And then there are the overcrowded eateries and infamous speedbreakers as well for every 1-2 km. Hardly makes one feel it is a highway.

Anyway, rants aside, there was a suggestion earlier by brraj for KRS backwaters, where there are large grassy meadow areas near the waterfront. If people agree for the distance part, this would be a good option. Could you help with the location? How accessible is it?

Take the right after Srirangapatna in Bangalore-Mysore highway. Follow the signal boards till you have to take right to reach KRS dam. Once you reach there ask locals for the route to Blue Lagoon as there are no sign board. It is 7 kms from there.

Check the link

My suggestion is to avoid mysore road sunday/saturday mornings or take kanakapura road.

are multiple voting allowed KRS backwaters and Kanva reservoir sounds good. Today's TOI says all dams are full which means water everywhere. How about Kabani reservoir?

How about this?

Name:  church.jpg
Views: 1818
Size:  113.8 KB

It is Shettihalli Church on the backwaters of Gorur dam.
200Kms and approximately 4 hours drive one way
This photo was when it was dry. now it will be half submerged (Again beautiful) One can take a coracle ride inside the church now.

Very close to this is the Gorur dam (small yet beautiful). So one can pay a visit to both the places

One more thing: This road is not Mysore road!

Updating the destination list: My attendance is tentative and hence I've not voted anywhere

- Stay Simple Riverdale resort, Hassan - 180 km, NH 48 (1) (maybe even Hassan-Belur stretch)
- Shivanasamudra - 110 km, NH 209 (2)
- Devarayanadurga - 70 km, NH 4 Tumkur
- KRS backwaters - 135 km, SH 17 Mysore (2)

- Hesarghatta grasslands - 50 km, off NH 4 before Nelamangala (Golden palms road) (1)
- Kanva reservoir - 60 km, off Mysore road, Ramanagaram
-Shettihalli church - 200 Km, NH48, off Hassan

You can still vote even if you don't come . If not attending, you will get to see the pictures later, hehe. Exercise your right to vote, and make a difference (politician's dialogue)

Better avoid Mysore road on weekends , unless you plan to start by 5am and return after 7pm from other side .

weekdays are fine , i travel tuesday to bangalore and back to mysore on thursday every week.
