The roads are amazing and Big, yet being a weekend the traffic was horrible. So we reached the destination a bit late than the expected time. The KSRTC Airavat Bus Service and the Staff is really nice. They provide a packed drinking water and newspaper to read in the journey. The Driver was cruising at a steady speed, no bumps or any other issues. It was a very e journey.

The road is good between Bangalore to Mysore. You can take the NICE road as well for relaxed driving but I took the normal road as we started at 6 AM. There was less traffic. The best place to stop for a break is at A2B Bidadi. If you can travel further you can stop at Channapatna which is actually half way between Bangalore and Mysore. Travel time is max 4 hours including breaks.

People are very friendly in traffic and they have very good traffic sense. No major traffic Jams and broad roads everywhere. Nice sightseeing and best place to visit by own car. Plenty of Roadside parking slots. Roadside assistance from direction boards are perfect. Petrol pumps are available everywhere.

Nice stay and hospitality which makes us feel good and feel to visit repeatedly. Price is also not too high and competitive. Food is also very delicious and tasty. Poolside ambience is too good, specially during evening time. Swimming pool is very clean and specious. Would prefer to go again...more »

Nice road, good climate so a lovely long drive, can eat well in the road side dhabas, can also visit kaveri river banks and tipu sultan tombs in the way and ranganatha bird sanctuary, not so much traffic on weekdays. Mostly weekends many people will go, so little traffic, but manageable.

We started our journey at 9 am from Bangalore to Mysore. On the way we have seen madduru vaidyanatha temple and chikkarasinakere temple and in Mandya we have visited ukkada maramma temple.

It was a wonderful journey by seeing a palace, zoo, chamundi hills and krs dam. We also saw nanjangud lalitha mahal palace vontikoppal. Best to enjoy karanji in krs dam
