Hessarghatta lies about 30 KM from Bangalore City and it is probably the last surviving grasslands in Bangalore. Its amazing how the scenery changes once you reach Hessarghatta, beautiful grasslands, blue sky and patches of trees on the horizon. We did a road trip to Hessarghatta last summer, although the weather was hot we had a amazing trip.


The vast grasslands provide hunting grounds for birds of prey and with a nice tele-lens you can get some awesome bird photos .If you love photography , you can spend an entire day taking pictures of the landscape, sunset at the lake , birds etc.


Our Native Village is a small eco resort in Hessarghatta and we ended up going there for lunch and to take shelter from the hot summer sun .The food was nice and they have a decent wine bar .The resort has a very rustic ambiance and it beautifully done up .The service was excellent and I highly recommend the place to anyone visiting Hessarghatta.The other famous resort in Hessarghatta is the Taj Kuteeram which was big disappointment ! they had a very disgusting looking expensive buffet and very very rude staff !!!
