I need to travel to Bangalore later this month due to some official commitments. Although I have been to Bangalore previously as well, I did not get to explore much beyond the city limits. This time though, I would have couple of free days over the weekends and want to make the most of it by visiting nearby places of interest around Bangalore. I am mainly interested to visit those places that does not involve overnight staying. One day trip within a radius of around 120-150 KM from Bangalore would serve me best. I will be renting out a self driven car during my stay in Bangalore, so I think it should not be a problem to cover 250-300 KM on a single day, if the roads are decent. So dear Bangaloreans, could you please suggest me some interesting places that can be visited on a one day trip from Bangalore? My priority would be places of scenic beauty, followed by historical places and wildlife reserves.
