One of the last trips we did before we moved out of Bangalore was a trip to Nagarhole National Park which is around 250KM from the city. Quite a wonderful experience 🙂 . You can get all the information bout the park here. We stayed at the Kings Sanctuary resort which was just outside the park. You can read my tripadvisor review here. The park restricts vehicular movement between 18:00-06:00 each day. There is no entry fee to the park however one needs to register at the check post. The jungle safari however has a nominal fee. The safari is conducted twice a day.. Mornings from 6-9 and evenings from 3-5pm. Would recommend that you reach early atleast an hour before start to reserve seats. On our way back we visited Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary. The sanctuary is a short detour on the Bangalore Mysore highway right after Srirangapattana town. One can cover the entire distance in bout 3 hours. Definitely recommend taking the boat ride. You can find more information bout the park here. Some of the pics that i clicked during the trip 🙂 .
