B R Hills – A Break from the City

If you’re seeking sanctuary not too far away from Bangalore, BR Hills is a stunning location to take a peaceful break away from the city.

 Things to Do

Biligiri Rangan Hills got its name most probably from the large, white rock face that holds the temple of Lord Rangaswamy. The Biligiriranganatha Swamy Temple Wildlife Sanctuary or simply BRT Wildlife Sanctuary was declared a tiger reserve in 2011 and is one of the biggest attractions of this area.

Apart from drowning in the beauty of these hills, sightseeing in B R Hills involves taking in the awesome fresh, pure air here among other things. Jungle safaris, trekking through the forests, fishing in the rivers, coracle boat rides and river rafting are just a few of the activities of the area.

 

Accommodation

 

Hotels in BR Hills offer a great variety of accommodation. From affordable hotels to comfortable and homely farmhouses and home stays. You can choose to stay in a nice large estate or plantation here or even a resort which is surrounded by forest, and enjoy the flora and fauna of each area.

I went from Bangalore to K.Gudi by car in Feb, 2015. The route I took was as follows

Bangalore->Mysore (Mysore Road) ->Nanjangoodu->ChamarajaNagar->K.Gudi. Usually, one can take the route via Kanakapura Road through Kollegal, but there is some construction work at Kollegal (A bridge has broken down), due to which a detour must be taken. The road from Mysore to Nanjangoodu is in bad shape and has a lot of traffic. The road from Nanjangoodu to K.Gudi is not the best, but definitely drivable. I spotted some elephants on the road after entering the Tiger Reserve.

There are places to eat on Mysore road. However, after Mysore, the number of places to eat are few are far away from each other. On the return journey, I came via T-Narsapur, Mavalli, Kanakapura and took Kanakapura road to Bangalore. This is a much better route to take than the route via Mysore. The roads are very scenic, there is very little traffic and the road are in awesome condition. If you have time, you can visit Talakadu and Shivasamudram on the way back. Talakadu is on the route. Shivasamudram is a short detour.

We visited through Big Van on hire. The overall experience was good, we visited some of the waterfalls on the way. We enjoyed dancing and eating on the way. You can find Kamath Yatri Nivas on the way near about Mandya. We had breakfast over there. Also you can find Coffee Day and MacDonalds there. Try to take your own eatable things as sometimes you find the things costly on the way. Going by own car or even by bus is a good option.

BR Hills is a short getaway trip from Bangalore. We have to take the Chamarajnagar Route for BR Hills to enjoy the forest. If we are lucky we may even spot the ever elusive Tiger or a Leopard. Deer, Elephants and Bison are common sightings. Please donít speed on the forest roads and donít honk. Nearby place from Chamarajnagar is Terekanambi which has an old Varadaraja temple.
