Thanks for the information. I am planning to do this trip after my return to Bangalore.

Not touching on the route, but can we have a fix on the early start at least by 5am? Is this fine by all?

I am ok with the time; right time to start.
Same place after the electronic city flyover right?

Mmm... why not make it a more identifiable spot - right after the toll booth exiting Bangalore? (Trying to make life easy for me and the likes! Not sure of the flyover you are referring to! )

Last when i spoke to hari he told that his safari was not around so thought he might come in his petrol optra.
Well, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge after you spoke to me, the Safari is back with me now and raring to go, I still claim my status as tentative, I have even booked a room at Riverok, but not paid any amount as of now, but looking at all your bookings I'm afraid I might not get accomodation now
