South, saar, south side

We have done Safari drive to DD, but not sure I will do it alone for sunrise. Weekend should see some crowd, but other days are different. Something towards Kanakapura /BG road is what I am looking at - which will help me club another task and get home before lunch and then start work.

I have enjoyed many sun rise views on the Hosur Road. Plenty of open spots near Krishnagiri. Canít pin point one specific place though condor.

Maybe a good drive to Krishnagiri, stop for sun rise, breakfast and back. About 210 km round trip.

Went to Mekedatu Sangama for a half day drive. Roads are decent. Roads post Kanakpura till Sangama are much better especially once inside the forest checkpost.

Had been to Mysore palace on Saturday. Bangalore to Mysore new expressway was a hoot to drive through, although i guess its not fully completed.
The crowd at Mysore palace at 7pm was insanely populated, although the view was great !

Beautiful picture.
There is no wonder why so many people flock to the Mysore Palace for Dussehra.
I have not seen this in person for so many years.

We went on a Sunday morning. So traffic was lean. Took about 2h 45 min to reach (From Indira Nagar) including breakfast at MTR just before Art of Living center. Takes about 1.5 hrs to visit Mekedatu and comeback to Sangama. Had a late lunch at Vaishnavi palace opposite to above mentioned MTR.

From NICE-Kanapura exit just stick to NH948 till Kanapura and take left to SH92. Reaching Kanakpura exit would depend on the location in bangalore. I took the road cutting across the city onward and return was through NICE to E.city and then to Madiwala

Hi,

Need advice on route options to Abbur (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbur,_Bangalore_Rural) from Bangalore.

Have been to https://g.co/kgs/fQDSC4 many years ago.
Back then, used to take a right turn in Channapatna and that was all.


Not very sure about it with the new Bangalore - Mysore expressway.

Kindly share any recent experience/route taken.


Cheers !
