Booked zoom car one Sunday morning and left for Mekedatu. Searched for the best route in early morning and found that the one via Lalbagh and connecting to Kanakapura road is the best, no tolls as well. We were out of Bangalore in around 40 minutes, starting from Hebbal.

Driving on Kanakapura Road is nice except tackling the buses (both government and private) who drive in high speeds. GPS on Zoom Car was useful and helped me in negotiating the correct turn on to the Mekedatu Sangam Road from Kanakapura Road. The Sangam Road is good except that it's a bit high altitude and many hair pin bends on the way. View is awesome all along this road, with beautiful hills, semi dense jungle. KSTDC hotel allows parking with booking only.

We started the return next day, Monday at 5 so that we can reach the city before the morning rush. The drive was smooth except a close shave at a blind turn where a private bus was overtaking a government one. While return we took the nice road and returned via HMT Layout.

The road to Mekedatu is good and is about two hourís journey. The place is neat and clean. The restaurant over there was awesome and comparatively cheap. Nice waterfall and smooth rocks nice boat journey and nice bus journey. Little bit risky so please try to visit with your parents. They will also have their lifetime experience.
