Chota Ladakh

The Dodda Ayur rock quarry in Karnataka’s Kolar district is excellent for a day trip from Bengaluru, as it is only 60 kilometres away. The settlement of Dodda Ayur was formerly a mining centre, and a deep quarry nearby has been filled with water over the years. The white stone in the background and the water in the lake resemble the famed Pangong lake in Ladakh, thus the name ‘Chota Ladakh.’

Muthathi Falls

According to local folklore, the famed Muthathi Falls in Karnataka, located roughly three hours from Bengaluru, are named for the drop-like shape of the water as it falls, which resembles pearls. The trip from Bengaluru takes you through the Bandipur National Park, where you could see elephants, deer, countless of bird species, and perhaps the mysterious tiger if you’re fortunate. The Bheemeshwari Fishing Camp, as well as other waterfalls like Mekedatu, Chunchi, and Shivanasamudra, are all located near this magnificent waterfall on the Cauvery River.

Charmadi Ghat

This 25-kilometer route joins Belthangady taluk in Dakshina Kannada district and Mudigere taluk in Chikkamagalur district, and it passes through the breathtaking Western Ghats, which are famed for their picturesque beauty and dense forests. Charmadi Ghat is around a 5.5-hour journey from Bengaluru. On a clear day, one can see as far as the Mangaluru shoreline from this stretch but it is usually enveloped in mist and fog. T he best time to visit is during the monsoon, when monsoon downpours create hundreds of seasonal waterfalls along the roadway, it’s also a great way to cool off throughout the summer. During the rainy season, however, it might be hazardous to drive through because of the sharp hairpin bends.

East Coast Road

The East Coast Road, often known as the ECR in Tamil Nadu, runs from Chennai to Cuddalore via Puducherry. This 777-kilometer route, however, provides much more than simply convenient transit; it allows visitors to drive along the gorgeous Bay of Bengal and experience attractions such as two amusement parks, the Madras Crocodile Bank, water sports, and more. If you intend to stay longer, there are several beach homes where tourists may stay and participate in sports such as surfing.
