Photos 3094-3014 gives an impression of floods that I have seen on TV (Andhra/Pak floods) and some other snaps of going through Latin American rainforests. The snap of the tuskers - quite symmetrical and the tree splits them nicely. Good one! Great hotel buddy - I am sure you would have had loads of fun. Hey, again coincidence, I am going to Nisargadham/Golden Temple as well in my TL at this very moment

@ Fordmanchau - For Mee too its out of budget. Wife is a Corporate Member so got to enjoy Club Mahindra Free. I am salaried and i too cannot afford Club Mahindra out of my pocket.

@ravibhat - Thank you. Yes that Mahout allowed me to take pics. I saw a board which said "No Photo Allowed" but he allowed me to. There was another couple who were takings pics also.

@ kannan666 - Thank you. Club Mahindra is good. We have a swimming pool, Indoor games area, Adventure sports, Net Browsing, grocery stores, Giant Chess, Cricket etc, but it will definitely burn a hole in the pocket.

@ ampere - It was raining and the river current was quite powerful. It was a motor boat. Rowing would be next to impossible.

@ neel385 - Yup, they are at Dubare

@ jeevmenon - Thank Dude. What a coincidence. If i had known earlier, we could have met. What is "TL" Tata Land-Rover ?

Sorry for the delayed update. My computer stopped working and had to get it fixed.

We hit the Road again and headed towards Nisargadhama. Took tickets and crossed over a hanging bridge and reached the island. There was a KSTDC hotel but was not in a mood to try it. We followed boards to the Deer park and saw some beautiful deer.

"Deer is one of my favorites" -

We could see a board which says "River" and followed it. Nothing great, just a view of Cauvery River. We came back to the ticket counter and enquired about boating but heard negative, because of the water current and headed towards the Parking.

We headed towards the Final destination before Mysore. Golden Temple Tibetian Settlement. We took right at Bylekuppe and headed to the towards Golden Temple. No need to ask directions here as we saw many Tibetans commute back and forth.

Good and ample parking is available behind the shopping complex. We took a walk around the shopping complex (did not buy) and headed to goldem temple. It is really beautiful. Kept chappal at the shoe stand and spent some time there.

Took Lunch at a Hotel there, which said "Tibetian Food Available". We had food there, it was very very Ok. I ordered Chowmein and trust me it tasted nothing near to orignal Chowmein. I was Born and brought up in Calcutta and i have tasted better chowmein. PLease note that the hotel is run buy a Malayali person and not a Tibetian.

Tired and fatigued, we headed towards Mysore and somehow with GPS we managed to reach Ginger Mysore.

We took rest and just went out for dinner. Next day we went to Mysore Zoo in the morning by 9:30. We were planning to take the electric Bus inside the zoo. Unfortunately we were the only people there and no one was coming. The ticketing counter lady told us hat there is a minimum 6 seat guarantee to start the tour. We were then joined by another family and we were 5 now. The forest official was kind enough to start the tour for 5 . Pics Follow. About an year back the electric bus was an old Mahindra Van look alike, but now it is the Maini Electric Vehicle.

It was raining throughout but we enjoyed sufficiently.

Nice picture-logue - especially the detailed reviews!

Yeah 'water-everywhere' is a common sight in this season although, I do like it that way. I remember we had camped at a certain place on the banks of Cauvery in summer and when we revisited the place in September, our campsite was at least 2-3 feet below water. Made us feel a bit naive against nature's forces as these floods can be really quick in building up and wash you away if you are not cautious where you camp.

We wound up Mysore Zoo and headed towards Rail museum but because of the one ways, We lost our way and gave up. We had Lunch and headed to Mysore Palace. As usual, no Pics inside the Palace. We clicked some out side the palace.

Default A Review on Ginger Mysore

We booked Ginger mysore just for trying it out. Here is my unbiased Review of Ginger.

It is affiliated to a three star but do not do justice to a three star. Reception is high class. I was asked for a choice of floor, but dint choose any particular floor as lift was available 24X7. First of all, Average Parking. Big vehicles will have a tough time maneuvering.

Rooms are small. This will not suit people with mindset who say "I am paying 1200/- why should I get such a small room". It is a self sustained neat and clean room with AC and 4 small bottles of Mineral water. It also had a make yourself tea 'n' coffee Kit. Ironing was available outside in a common area.

One thing i liked was trolley to move luggage from Car to room. There is no Bell boy concept here. It is "self help". I personally prefer self help.

They have an attached Coffee Day and a buffet restaurant. they have a small Curio shop and a T-Shirt Shop inside. ATM is attached.

We covered Karanji Lake on the final day and we decided to take a taxi as i was not sure of the route. We also covered Jaganmohan art palace. We decided to make it to Karnataka State emporium, but trust me prices of handicraft are way too much. I asked a center table for 200/- from 4200/- and he was ready to push it on my head for 2000/- with a Puja stand for that price. I did not buy the main reason being they brain-washed me and did not give me a chance to think.

I headed back to the Mysore Ginger, vacated, Had Lunch and headed back to Hosur. Enroute we covered Srirangapatna.

scopriobharath: Great coverage. I will use this for my Eid trip to Mysore. Do you know of other hotels in Mysore which one can try? Also, what are the timings of Brindavan gardens? (what are the timings for the lightings?) Timings of the Palace/Zoo? No pics of the Karanji lake? 3478 is a good one. Did you go up the Chamundi hill? Is there a timing there too? I just have a day from morning say 8:00 am to night 8 pm and so would go with the timings.
Btw, TL=Travelogue. There are lots of similar snaps on the Nisargadhama/Golden-Temple. I took off from there to Chikmagalur/Belur/Halebidu/Shravanabelagola instead of Mysore.

Btw, hows Mysore zoo? We have been to Vandalur zoo many times but looks like Mysore is quite big as well. Hey, there is the church in Mysore too. Whats the next big trip, Bharath?
