I had stayed in this place on my first visit to Masinagudi in 2003. It was then called Casa Deep Woods. It used to be a beautful place with a stream running through the property and hopefully it remains the same. The cottages were neat and nice. We stayed in a room at the end with a Bamboo grove right next to the cottage and the sounds of bamboo could be creepy at night. I think this place is among the better ones in Bokkapuram so you would enjoy I am sure.

The road condition was good when I went in March. Dont know the condition now. The normal route is Bangalore - Mysore - Gundulpet - Bandipur - Masinagudi. The Bangalore Mysore highway is quite a busy one but has eating joints every few kms. If you want a change you could go Kanakpura - Kollegal - Chamrajnagar - Gundulpet. This road did not have much traffic but did not have any eating places either.

Masinagudi and Chickmagulur are completely different experiences so I would reccomend chosing the place on what you are looking for.

Re: From Chaotic Bangalore to Calm Masinagudi

I dont know the appropriateness of reopening such an old thread but consider this as a public information.

This travelogue started with a tribute to Kenneth Anderson and there seems to be quite some readers of his books among the members.

His son Donald appears in many of his stories and was an integral part of many of the stories. Donald was very close to his father and spent his early life roaming through all the jungles of South India with his father and later until the new forest laws stopped such activities.

What was not well known was that Donald lived in Bangalore and led the life of a recluse for many years.

Donald passed away yesterday morning at the age of 80 and I thought I would share this information for Kenneth Anderson readers among the members.
