This is happening on a pleasant day 2012 Sep 18. Myself Prajith Nambiar a traveler interested to discover by travelling. On Sep 18 2012 my friend called me to Mysore to meet his lover and called me for giving a company for the trip. He know I wont say no for a trip. I agreed with a lot of concept for the trip. The right time of bus was at 9 Pm from Salem bus stand. The punctuality of SETC service made the bus to arrive by 11. 00pm. Finally we get into the bus. I love to travel with full eyes, So I didn't sleep. Within 30mints me and the conductor of the bus got attached and we started to share our travelling experience suddenly bus reached Mettur nearby to the Mettur dam bus stopped for 20 mints tea break. Me and the conductor lighted a cigar and then the driver joined with us.

There was only very less crowd in the bus a maximum of 10 passengers. My friend is in a deep sleep. We three were sharing our travel experience and we started our journey again and I placed my seat near to conductor and driver. The bus was crossing over the dam and it was an amazing sight in the moonlight. We get into the forest namely Sathyamangalam forest which shares the border of Tamilnadu and Karnataka. The forest was dense and the road was worst. Our bus is having a mechanical steering and want to cross the pass which is having 70 hair pins bends. It was an amazing drive by our driver with his full effort. After completing 30+ hair pins we reached Madheswaran Kovil hills. This is a beautiful temple at the centre of the hill. Bus was in Halt for 30mints there and we had a cigar again as the climate was too cold.

Again journey started from Madheswaran hill to Mysore. On the way suddenly driver stopped the bus and he was waiting for someone. At that moment a group of monkeys from forest came out and they came line by line to the bus. Driver took a bunch of bananas and the leader of the monkey came forward and took it from driver hand. After all went back to forest and I asked to driver regarding this and he replied " This is my liking and I am doing this for the last many years and whenever my bus reaches here they will come in line to take the bananas and then he praised Lord Anjaneya. We continued the journey and the bus reached Mysore by 7 Am on Sept 19.

I don't know the train name exactly but the journey was quite good because for the first time I travelled with my parents. We enjoyed a lot while travelling because we had new set of food items like Mathur Vada, Churmuri and other Karnataka special items. The train is also comparatively better than other trains and it is somewhat maintained properly. If you are a first timer I suggest you to go by train to Mysore.

It was a long travel we enjoyed a lot. The route via Erode Sathiyamangalam is not good and it is very risky too. There are heavy vehicles (lorry) on the route and that makes little difficult to drive. On the way you can find snacks shops and restaurants where you can get down to have some tea/coffee or some snacks.

I reached Mysore, was at home on time. I travelled by bus the seats, movie, songs, entertainment is very good. And I saw Mysore natural sceneries during the travel and it is very beautiful. Listed Mysore palace and zoo in Mysore. We should visit Mysore palace as it was the place where Mysore king used to stay. Really a royal city Mysore is. Mysore palace is the first attraction of this city. The palace is awesome, built very well, decorated very well and maintained very well. A historically rich town. The entire town is enclosed by the river Cauvery to form a river island. There are a lot of shops outside the temple where one can shop for some souvenirs.
