We all love exploring different and unique places. This tour is one such opportunity for you to wander into 3 beautiful destinations of South India- IT hub Bengaluru, Royal city of Mysore and Queen of Hill Stations, Ooty.
Famous for its advancement in technology and IT sector, the city of Bengaluru has a lot more to offer. With the Lalbagh and Vidhan Soudha, one starts to believe that there exist two different viewing angles to this city. Mysuru on the other hand is well known for its palaces and royal architecture. Also, the Chamundi Hills has a giant 4.8 m tall monolith of Nandi.
Ooty, also known as Udagamandalam is perched in the mountains of Tamil Nadu and is very close to the state of Karnataka. The drive to Ooty from Mysuru itself is so beautiful. It is a quiet hill station where you can rejuvenate yourself and get some ‘Soul’ Time for yourself.
