Weekend destinations from Bangalore


BangaloreIf the north of India is gifted with snow-capped mountains the south doesn’t fall far behind. The dense forests, the Western Ghats, coastal beaches, and acres of green farms add beauty to South India.
BangaloreIf you are put up in Bangalore and long for that quick weekend break from the city here is a list of some of the not so famous and unexplored weekend destinations to visit from Bangalore. While you can climb your way up the granite hills in Ramnagaram, you can also sit back and relax in Nrityagram. If you fancy animals head straight to Bheemeshwari or Bandipur, but if you are looking for simplicity and beauty then Yercaud is where you should be. If history pleases you make your way to Chitradurga.
Ramnagram Ramnagram Having been featured in many movies the number of tourists visiting the town of Ramnagram has escalated. Surrounded by lush green nature and solid rock formations this town has a lot to offer for adventure enthusiasts. Climbing up the challenging rocks at Ramnagaram is indeed a very exciting experience for some of us. The granite hills at Ramnagaram are almost impossible to scale thus many tourists try their hands at it. Some of the well-known climbs are Rainbow wall, Black Diamond and Wanakkal Wall.
Nrityagram Nrityagram Contrary to Ramnagaram Nrityagram is known to be India’s first Gurukul. Set up by Protima Gauri an odissi dancer. The best time to visit Nrityagram is during the Vasanth Habba i.e the spring festival. A must see for all dance lovers, the festival brings with it a lot of joy and enjoyment.  An all night dance festival is organized where legends from the field of Dance and artists perform.
Even if you are not a dancer or fond of dance the town has much to offer, the perfect harmony with nature and the scenic surroundings attract many people to Nrityagram.
Bheemeshwari Bheemeshwari Located in Mandya district 100 km from Bangalore, Bheemeshwari is becoming one of the major tourist destinations. Bheemeshwari is a haven for nature lovers and animal lovers. Tourists can get a chance to spot many animal like leopards, crocdiles, wild boars, jackals and many exotic birds.
Fishing as a sport is also catching up in Bheemeshwari. This is also home to the famous Masheer. Boating in the River Cauvery is also something that one can enjoy. The boat ride takes you through some extremely beautiful places and one can even spot some exotic birds and animals.
Yercaud Yercaud If you are on a tight budget and fancy a small break in a beautiful hill station Yercaud is the right place for you. Yercaud is sometimes known as the poor man’s Ooty. The pleasant climate and the various species of Flora and Fauna add to Yercauds beauty. Yercaud is also known for its coffee and orange plantations. Like many other towns from the South Yercaud also has numerous spice plantations like black pepper and cardamom.
Yercaud in Tamil can be broken into ‘Lake’ and ‘forest’, and as the name rightly suggests Yercaud’s beauty is mesmerizing. The abundant teak and sandalwood forests make the climate of Yercaud of very pleasant. Don’t forget to catch the summer festival at Yercaud that has many festivities and shows.
Chitradurga Chitradurga FortIf history and culture entices your soul, Chitradurga has a lot to offer to you. One can hear mnay legends about this region. This region was once ruled by many dynasties. Chitradurga is mostly a hilly region with numerous small villages and many forts. The Chitradurga fort built over a period of years by different people is situated on top of a hill. One can associate names like Hyder Ali, Palegar Nayakas and Tipu Sultan with the Chitradurga Fort.
Of the many things to do in Chitradurga one should also visit the numerous small villages scattered in this district, narrating the heroic tales of people who ruled their villages.
Bandipur Bandipur Bandipur National Park is a great place for your family. The breathtaking beauty of the Nilgiri’s and the large number of animals like Sambar, Hornbill, Deer, Panther, Sloth Bear, Deer, Python etc make Bandipur a great holiday destination for the whole family. Bandipur also became well known after being chosen as the site for Project Tiger, an initiative by the Government to protect the Tigers.
