One of our very popular locations in South India is Masinagudi which lies en route to the well known hill station Ooty.About 240 kms from Bangalore, this cute little town is nestled in the heart of the Nilgiri range with lush green forest all around. The drive from Bangalore will not exceed 6hrs with stops for breakfast at Channapatna or Mysore and a brief pitstop at Bandipur forest. If time permits one can even take the forest safari ride before continuing towards the tamil nadu border.

Masinagudi has different types of accommodation starting from Dormitory for large groups to wooden cottages and huts for the cozy couple. Some resorts even offer accommodation in Tree Houses at a much higher cost (but naturally) and also allows travelers to pitch their own tents but whatever be the kind of accommodation, this place is definitely worth a visit.

To get the best out of Masinagudi, we suggest you take a 2 night halt to experience the breath taking view of the Nilgiri hills and to soak up the fresh air. You can also try your hand at trekking and also bathe in the fresh cold water flowing down from the mountains.

Trip for two for a one nite stay at Masinagudi will set you back by Rs 4000/- unless you opt for dorm stays (for large groups) which could cost a little less.
