I love those mid-night trips where you can drive with almost nothing on the road

Hi Guys,

I was inactive because this site was blocked for a couple of days at work and I don't have time at home due to my relatives coming down from UAE.

Shantanu is going to post the route details and the resort which will cater to everyone and near the beach is Soorya Beach Resort.

SOORYA BEACH RESORT | TARIFF

For BHPians who are looking for more serene atmosphere, you can confirm on staying here.

Please post your confirmations for the trip on 7th/8th Aug Weekend.

Confirmed List:

Indy + 4
Deepak + 3

Hi Guys,

As already informed, I would not be able to join this trip on the 7th/8th Aug as I am flying to Delhi from 3 to 11 Aug. Well, this time for a good reason as I am expecting a junior TBHPian by 5th Aug

However, I will post the route details to pondicherry from Bangalore shortly over here.

Default Game for BR Hills/Nagarhole/Bandipur/Kabini

No intention to hijack the thread nor to dampen the pondi spirit guys. Just wanted to know if anyone game for BR Hills (JLR) or something on similiar lines (kabini, Nagarhole,bandipur etc) wildlife place, less than 100 km from mysore on Aug 19th. I am on the way home from bangalore, so possibly thought can catch up with any bhp folks if interested at mysore on 19th or start 18th from bangalore together towards any of wildlife resorts mentioned. In an other wise scenario wanted to know from bhp mem's only which is best suited to view some wild wild life (counted out big cat anyway !!) and brew cup of coffee early morning along with bhp gang if possible anyone interested. JLR heard is best, put is very pricey. Want a good accomodation since being with family, safe and secure as well full enjoyable with awesome food not creating a big hole in pocket ! what say..guys...

Just a brief plan.

Start from Bangalore towards Mysore at about 4 pm, say so that reach Mysore within 8pm. Stay in Mysore that night and morning move on to any of the above said wildlife (BR/Kabini/Nagarhole/Bandipur) areas from mysore as we decide on which is best suited gathering all bhp folks info's and ideas.

Last time I remember Adson and others planned at Nagahole, Jungle Inn was supposed to be part of it, but unfortunately could not. Somwhat on those lines I am thinking economical but enjoyable to best and with nature.

Hi guys,
The Chennai members would be interested in joining your meet and making it a twin city meet, if you guys are ok with the idea.
Let us know when and we could coordinate regarding the accommodation.
Cheers

Default Pondy Trip

Sorry guys for being off the thread for some time, Here is the route map from Bangalore to Pondicherry which I had took in February.

Bangalore to Pondicherry is close to 300 KM (can vary by about 20-40 KMs depening on some route Altering) and would take roughly 5 hours

Bangalore --> Hosur --> Krishnagiri --> Chengam --> Thiruvanamalai --> Tindivanam --> Pondicherry.

Many T-BHPians have visited Pondicherry from Bangalore and their detailed Travelogues are more than sufficient to enjoy your vacation in Pondicherry, I am listing few of the links of the same below, They are more than helpful.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...ndicherry.html (Team Outing: Weekend at Pondicherry!)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...ndicherry.html (A visit to the French Colony - Pondicherry)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...bangalore.html (Road Trip (Bangalore - Pondicherry - Bangalore))

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...ndicherry.html (A weekend trip to Pondicherry)


P.S. - As already conveyed, I would not be a part of this trip as I am leaving for Delhi/Lucknow Tuesday and returning next wednesday. BTW, one more good news is that I have been blessed with a beautiful little Angel today morning by the almighty, hence, my omission.

Pls do let me know in case of any other enquiries.
