Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Bangalore to Mysore

After a short transfer, relive moments from the Bollywood saga, Sholay, on this beautiful countryside bike ride off Bangalore. On this day, we make our way to the dramatic bouldery landscape of Ramanagaram. This rock-scape has been quite a favourite with India’s movie industry. Infact not only Bollywood, even English productions have used this wondrous site- David Lean’s A Passage to India was also filmed here.

Post-lunch, take a transfer to Srirangapatna. Enclosed by the river Kaveri to form a river island, Srirangapatna was a scene of the decisive battle fought between Tipu Sultan and British East India company, a turning point in Indian history.

Bike from here along the idyllic river Kaveri past paddy fields, sugarcane, banana plantations towards Somnathpur Temple, a 13th century Vaishnava Hindu temple on the banks of River Kaveri at Somanathapura, Karnataka. The ornate temple is a classic illustration of the Hoysala architecture, built in soapstone. Enjoy the stunning temple and end the ride with a well deserved local meal.
