I am asking my friends to visit this place for long time, not happened, So I decided to visit to this place in my bike(Thunder Bird) itself.

13-Apr-08 6.00 AM I started morning and driving towards BR Hills in Bangalore-Mysore state high way. When I crossed Yelandur and entered in forest road, its really amazing place to ride ride ride.

I reached BR Hills temple(top of the hill) and spend some time, nothing to see in this place other then temple & view point. No activity in this place other then temple & view point. We can have some good time pass seeing greenish place.

After I started my ride to K Gudi to go for some safari, Once I reached K Gudi, then only I realized, safari only for booked people, not for public. Bad part in this place, no hotel, no tea stall, nothing to buy. But good forests for time pass.

I started my return journey from this place & decided to go through mysore, I traveld towards Chamrajnagar, its forest road, good place to ride & nice time. I took my very late lunch in Chamrajnagar and started to Bangalore.

One more wonderful week end !! Worth to ride in forest road !! Just keep riding in forest 🙂
