Unravelling the Marvels - Part 2

Compiling a set of destinations for trips around Bangalore, Kolkata and Pune


Bangalore is one of India's most progressive cities, blessed with lush greenery, victorian architecture, an all-year-round balmy climate, and Microbreweries. But as pretty as Bangalore is, there are few places around Bangalore that you can consider for a quick weekend gateway. 


This is where some people come to find faith, and some seek adventure. The hillock's shape resembling Shiva linga and the small stream called Ganga flowing tirelessly in the background, this place offers you a very serene, picturesque ambiance. 


A dream paradise for trekkers, especially for those night owls who like to trek in the night gazing at the stars trying to find the truth of the universe without fearing any demons of the night. At the top of Skandagiri lies the Tipu Sultan Fort in ruins, and somewhere inside, there are two caves and around six samadhis. 

Savandurga Hills

India's most significant monolithic hill is located right next to the Amaravati River. This is the place where your camera can capture beautiful pictures of the region with a river flowing at the foothill with temples perched at the riverside. 

Banerghatta National Park

Well, if you are bored with seeing the same dull faces around you, then visit Bannerghatta National Park to meet some amiable wild cats. Don't get intimidated by this formidable wildlife; you see, these scary animals are peaceful if you watch from afar. You can meet leopards, tigers, and even the Asiatic lion just 20 km away from the city. Incredible!


This city of Joy never fails to amaze me, from beautiful libraries, bookstores to savory-sweet delicacies like RoshoGulla. But you can always explore Kolkata at your leisure. You should know about the amazing tourist spots a little away from Kolkata. 


You will find calmness and peace at the banks of Ichamati. A boat ride that takes you close to Bangladesh, a walk under the canopy of Golpata trees inside the jungle, a weekend at Taki will give you a unique experience.

Henry Island

You can spend some quality time away from the hustle-bustle of the city at Henry Island surrounded by the calm sea, the rocks, white sand, and the dazzling beauty of the Mangrove Forest.
