#60DaysOfSummer – Jungle Safari of Bandipur

For a lot of travellers, escape into the wilderness is the best vacation possible. If you’re exploring Mysore this summer, we recommend adding Bandipur National Park to your vacation. Go on a jeep safari to see tigers, elephants and other wildlife native to the region.

Since March to May is a dry season, visitors can often spot animals coming out of their habitats to  look for watering holes. You can go to the Bandipur Tiger Reserve or go on a Elephant spotting safari during designated time slots in the mornings and evenings. As a primer for first timers, forest officers in the area have strict rules so as to not disturb the wildlife there. When you’re on your safari, please remember to take the instructions your guide gives you very, very seriously. It’ll go a long way in ensuring your safety, and the safety of the animals in the reserve.

If, at the end of a long safari, you feel like you should stay and soak in the quiet of the forest, you’ll find a few resorts like Jungle Lodges and The Serai Bandipur. These resorts also organise safaris and nature walks.

 

HOW TO GET THERE

You can book a cab from Bangalore to Bandipur or take a Mysore to Bandipur taxi.

#60DaysOfSummer – Swim Under the Kempty Falls

If travelling to Mussoorie is on the cards for you this summer, we must say, you’ve made an excellent choice! With an old world charm, cliff-side walkways, cable cars and a lovely street filled with locally owned stores and eateries, Mussoorie is a great place to unwind away from the heat.

And when you’re not at Cambridge Book Depot or going on a mad hunt to find Ruskin Bond’s bungalow, you can head to Gun Hill in a cable car for a stunning view of snow-capped mountains. But one of our favourite spots to head to when we visit Mussoorie is Kempty Falls, about 15km from the hill station.

Given the sheer number of tourists who visit the falls throughout the year, we’d go as far as to say that Kempty is a natural water park. The base of the falls make for a great picnic spot, and a nice place to go for a swim.

HOW TO GET THERE

Take a cab from Dehradun to Kempty, or take your already booked cab to Kempty from Mussoorie.

#60Days of Summer – Day Trip to Wet’n’Joy Water Park

When school’s out and your family is in a holiday mood, there’s no better way to beat the heat than to head to a water park. Wet’n’Joy Water Park near Lonavala is possibly the one place near Mumbai you won’t mind spending the whole day at.

As far as water parks are concerned, Wet’n’Joy has all the water rides and attractions you could want on a hot day – Crazy River, Disko H2O, Free Fall and Thunderr Waves to name a few. And because the water park is on the old Mumbai-Pune highway, it makes a great pitstop for those of you who’d like to go on a longer vacation to some of the most scenic hill stations near Mumbai and Pune.

HOW TO GET THERE

Book a cab from Mumbai to Wet’n’Joy Water Park or from Pune to Wet’n’Joy Water Park. From there, you can plan a road trip to Matheran, Mahabaleshwar or Panchgani.

#60DaysOfSummer – Magnetic Hill at Leh

On the Srinagar-Ladakh highway, there is a natural optical illusion that has been blowing travellers away ever since it was discovered. Magnetic Hill is a must-visit for anyone who’s going to Ladakh from Srinagar or vice versa, whether or not you’re riding on your bike or taking out a car.

The illusion, that has so many travellers absolutely spellbound, makes vehicles look like they’re being rolling upward towards a hill (hence the name) even if they’re stationary. Though the illusion may have a simple enough explanation, we still recommend giving it a shot this summer.

And while you’re there, we do suggest taking the customary photograph of your family or friends in front of the Magnetic Hill board – send us these pictures, and we’ll be sure to share them on our Instagram page.

HOW TO GET THERE

Magnetic Hill is on the highway from Srinagar to Ladakh. The road is closed during winters. But if you’re planning a summer visit, you can’t miss the hill. You can also ask your cab driver to guide you to the spot.

But the rest of the year, you get some great weather, a lovely view of the glaciers and some quiet downtime at the hill station.

If you’re planning to stay over a weekend, we recommend heading over to some budget hotels in Patnitop like Vardaan Resort and Hotel Greentop.
