Guys, the trip has had to be postponed by a week or two for the time being. Sorry for the inconvenience. Will update the new dates in a couple of days.

Yes, I know. Only disadvantage is that the crowd there might be more (not if we can grab all the huts). But the advantage of choosing that weekend is that we get to spend 3 days and hence better chance of spotting some animals (fingers crossed). I spoke to my contact for arranging the acco for the 2nd weekend. Said, it would not be possible as there are going to be some VIP's over there during that period. Last thing we need is getting caught up in that mess.

Hi McLaren, Can any member post little detail about destination, distance, approach road etc. I particularly do not have much idea about the same.

Also can I ( Me + Wife + 3 years Kid) come in Maruti 800. Is it advisable? Need to sort out few things and I will be in most probably.

Rahul,

Missed the Yelagiri meet. I have been craving to visit BR Hills for some time now. Though I have visited many Wild Life Spots, yet to spot a Tiger in the Jungle.

Me & Wifey (2) will come along in M 800. Count me in.

Hi,
I wouldnt advise this though as you would need to pass through JLR and the range officer's place and they are sure to be enquiring as what you are doing at the late hour as there is checkpost at JLR / range officer quarters.

There is a PWD guest house which has rooms at 150 rs near the temple. Stayed there once when my kid was 1 yr old, no food, no water, no electricity but great experience. Not sure how to book it though.

I used to drive through Chamrajnagar BR hills road around 430 PM to the temple, then drive back from temple around 530 PM and cross out by 630 pm. This is a method for free safari.

24/25/26 wouldnt be possible as I will be at Mudumalai
Best regards
Bala
