When once the plan was set, we thought to take a cook along to maximise the effortless stay. We hired a cook & we all (Me, shashi, guru, vatsa & one more guru ) started fully loaded with luggage & utensils, handygas & ofcourse my photography gears in my safari dicor & headed mysore to pick pranesh from his home & reached bandipur . We had booked a dormetry, spent one day in bandipur & later moved on to chammanahalla guest house in moolehole range of bandipur near karnataka & kerala border. Its a heaven on earth kind of a place.. there isn’t proper facilities for drinking water & only solar lights are available, but these adds to preserving natural beauty of wilderness.
Anticipating the continious holidays during christmas, some of us planned to visit bandipur as we had no other interesting place to relax on holidays. Last minute we got confirmation of stay in bandipur..many thanks to our friend pranesh who works for conservator of wildlife office in mysore & also bro-in-law of my good friend Suresh. Pranesh is down to earth kind of man with lotzz of patience.
