I went to B.R. Hills around 3 years back and I still remember my visit to this place well and am just waiting for life to return to normal in India so that I can visit B.R. Hills one more time during the weekend.
Where is B.R. Hills – Biligirirangan Hills is located at around 180 kilometres from Bangalore. This is the ideal weekend place with family from Bangalore. Drive from my place is around 4 hours, so we can leave on Friday evening and return home on Sunday. During the winter temperature can drop to around 10 to 15 Celsius, this is the best time to visit B.R. Hills.
Stay at B.R. Hills – I always like staying at Jungle Lodges and thankfully we have K.Gudi Wilderness camp run by Jungle Lodges here. The location of K.Gudi camp is so scenic and you will get to see lot of birds around their camps. The added advantage of staying here is they arrange Jungle Safari early in the morning and evening. If we are lucky we can spot a Tiger and we will definitely see Deer, Monkey, Elephant and lot of Birds.
Things to do in B.R. Hills – I must always start my day running or walking and also do a little bit of Yoga. The early morning Trekking followed by yoga here will be a nice experience. We will get to see lot of Birds and also few elephants around K.Gudi Wilderness Camp. We don’t have Televisions and this must be one of the best place to relax our mind and have a quiet sleep.
Jungle Lodges is known for Jungle Safari. Jungle Lodges has the permission to go deep inside the forest and if we are lucky we can spot a Tiger. I went on Safari twice but could not spot a Tiger. I was able to spot few animals and there were plenty of rare birds.
Other Places around B.R. Hills – Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple is around 5 kilometres from K.Gudi camp and is located at the top of B.R. Hills. Drive to this temple and the view from top of this hill is beautiful.
B.R. Hills is a nice place for 2 days break and the most ideal place for people like me in Bangalore. We can reach this place in 4 hours and the moment we hit Nice Road we will be out of Traffic. Am waiting for Covid-19 to leave and life to return to normal so that I can plan a trip to B.R. Hills.
We can see Nature at its best in B.R. Hills, we can see some wildlife and we can have the ideal break.
