A very good experience just for the bike ride. Had travelled there with 8 friends on bikes from Mysore. We went ahead till Bandipur on that day. It was pretty sunny on the day time and our licks came out really well.

An excellent Temple atop the hill. Beautiful IDOL of Lord Gopalswamy. Religious, serene & scenic, weather par excellence are the key to natures wonder. One can view the entire surrounding Bandipur & other forest ranges below. The uphill trip was rough due to bad road, one can glimpse elephants feeding on the habitat if lucky. Carry some short eats as... More

When it mists (Hima) it also cover the Lord and hence the name Himavad Gopalaswamy. Perhaps, a little neglected, the temple is still a must... More

The place has a large elephant population and tourists are allowed only between 8:30AM - 4PM. A great view of nature awaits the tourists atop the mountain. If you are... More

This Temple is located around 80 Kms from Mysore, near a village called "Hangala" on Gundlupet - Bandipur (Mysore - Ooty) Road. This place is primarily a Hill Station wherein on the top of the Hill station, Lord Gopalakrishna... More

A ticket with time set to come back from the top is issued. It is suggested not to stop in between and drive to the top. Top there is a parking lot, Temple... More
