Getaways from Bangalore for Summer Holidays

Summers in India is always hot and unbearable. Bangalore, our city which used to have a salubrious climate is seeing increase in the levels of Mercury over the years. Fortunately few good spells of summer rain in the last week has brought the heat down. We hope the rain continues.

Summer time means holiday time. Time to take the family and kids on an outing. Naturally, everyone heads to hill stations to soak in the cool climate. Here are the five of our favourite destinations you can take your family this summer

Ooty

Naturally, the queen of Hills stations is the best bet to escape scorching south Indian summer. But don't make the mistake of staying in the crowded town which will be be chock a bloc during summer. Head to outskirts and stay in either Red Hills or Avalanche area. Other excellent options are Coonoor and Kotagiri.

Kodaikanal

Kodai is a quaint hill station. Over the years, it is getting crowded but has not lost the charm. Again, try and stay on the outskirts and not in the town.


Tirthahalli

We are partial to Malnad. Coorg and Chikmagalur is saturated. You must be wondering as to why this place for summer vacation. This is not a hill station. But there are lot of stuff which you can indulge in and around Tirthahalli with your family. You can spend quiet evening on the sandy banks of Tunga river seeing the sun set in the horizon. Get up early to watch spectacular sunrise in Kundadri or Navilukallu gudda. Make your kids play with elephants in Sakrebailu elephant camp. Trek up the stairs of Kavaledurga for a beautiful view of the Malnad. Enjoy the famous sunset of Agumbe. Take a dip in the Sirimane falls or Barkhana falls. Do river rafting over Sita river. Go for boating on the back waters of Sharavati. If you are a die hard trekker, trek to the summit of Kodachadri. What else can one ask for?

The Forests

Best time to see wild animals if you are a wild life buff. The tiger sanctuaries of South India may provide you an opportunity to get a chance to meet the big cat. Nagarahole/Kabini, Bandipur, Mudumalai, B R Hills and Bhadra are the places to be. Go there before it rain.

The West Coast

You must be wondering if i have gone insane. Yes, the West Coast will be hot. No doubt about it. But it is only between 12 Noon and 4 PM. Stay indoor during this time and enjoy the sea rest of the time. The evenings are pleasant with breeze. The sea will be safe and sunsets gorgeous. Go for surfing. The places we love on the west coast which are still unexplored are

a) Byndoor  - Beautiful beach, unexplored. 30 KMs from Kundapur.


b) Kapu - Lovely beach with a beautiful light house - 15 KMs from Udupi


c) Cannanore - Explore the beauty of backwaters of Malbar


d) Bekal - Seaside fort and lovely beach - 60 KMs from Mangalore


e) Bengere and Mulki - Surfer's paradise - 15 KMs from Udupi


If you need more information on planning a trip to any of these places, please write at poorna62@gmail.com. Happy to help.
