    Guys, I am planning to Wayand this weekend, anybody has any idea which resort/hotel is good.
    And route info please.
  2. PS: This no promotion..!
    Ravi:
    My BIL,friends got a house+estate & now turned it to run like a Home-stay. If you are not particular about "best amenities" that a full fledged resort would provide, I would suggest you give a thought to visit. It is very near to Soochippara Waterfalls (<1 km Google for it) or Meppadi/Pookkodu that are other nearby landmarks. I had been there to pay a visit during last week of May and found it decent.

    This being a recent start, I can get you a best deal ( close to half the rate!! ) Do feel free to contact.
    google for valentine wayanad.

    Thanks Drive_drift.
    I am planning to take exact route as you suggested.

    Do you have any view on Banasura Hill resort?
  6. Hi Ravi,

    I have not idea about Banasura Hill Resort. i stayed at Italiya resorts, decent one, got that for 1000Rs per night 2 bed DSCN0501.jpg DSCN0482.jpg DSCN0500.jpg with breakfast + tea. attaching the pictures of the same.
    but tell you food is made of coconut oil in wayanad (personally i don`t like).

    try to get some raincoat, umbrella or enjoy the rain and beauty of thick forest.

    Back from wayanad (God's own country). Lovely place.

    Route -
    Bangalore - Mysore - Nanjangudu---> Gundlupet ---> bandipur national park - Sulthan Bathry----> wayand (Banasura resort)
    Distance - 308KM

    Road Condition -
    Bangalore to Mysore - Excellent, with some unexpected speed-breaker.
    Mysore to Nanjangudu - Good, with lots of traffic
    Nanjangudu to Gundlupet - Good, less traffic
    Gundlupet to Sulthan Bathry (viat national park) - Good, bliss to drive (keep speed at 50-60, and open your window.
    Sulthan Bathry to Banasura resort - Bad, very thin road, and Kerala Transport drivers drives very dangerously.

    • Resort - Awesome view.
    • Service - Good
    • Price - Bit pricey.

    Amazing pics! These are Screen saver stuff!
    You had a terrific time for sure !
  9. Great picture Ravi, the Coffee day i still remember all my trips i usually stop there :)
    yes Ravi mysore road have too many speed breakers and one important message to all TFI member .. "if your driving from Mysore road at night(or early morning for) try to put emergency(hazard light) if you having any speed breaker in front of you, this will help people to come fast behind you and they don`t notice that you have applied breaks and don`t bang your car. last weekend i have seen 2 major accidents because of this. 4 cars banged each other because the first car applied sudden breaks for speed breakers and the follow car didn`t get the view of the thing."

    2 thing: the "ramnagar place" group of people try to stop your car at night time and they will come on the road. don`t stop the car and put all your mirrors up and lock the doors of the car. actually they want to loot you. this had happen with my friend last weekend at 9pm. have heard by many of my office friends too.
    take care and drive safe :)
