Here is my Travelouge, of Waynad in Oct 2009. Day1: Left Blore 6:10 AM, reach mysore 8:15 AM had breakfast in some hotel there. Headed to Wayanad from there. Roads where good almost entire way. After Mysore it was only 2 lane road. It was raining but that did not slow us down. Total distance to Wayanad would be around 290 kms.Upon reaching the border of Kerala (Wayanad) you will start seeing good greenary, and bamboo plantations. Stop there take some pics.
Mysore is around 140 kms from Bangalore
Mysore is famous for the festivities that take place during the Dasara festival when the city receives a large number of tourists. Mysore also lends its name to the Mysore mallige, the Mysore style of painting, the sweet dish Mysore Pak, the Mysore Peta (a traditional silk turban) and the garment called the Mysore silk saree. Inspite of thousands of tourists visiting Mysore its still a clean place.
