Ganeshgudi would feature quite high on a list of South India birdwatching tours.

Kabini, due to its location close to Bangalore, has become a hub of nature activities and jungle trips. Birdwatchers also love to converge in these pristine forests to catch a glimpse at some of the many bird species living here. Here are 5 of the popular birds you will come across.

White Wagtail

The white wagtail is one of the most exotic bird species in Kabini National Park. One can summarise the colour of this small bird as various shades of grey and white. These birds can be caught prowling on dragonflies, a favourite meal. They also love other insects and can be found foraging in the ground for grubs and worms.

Pied Bush Chat

This tiny passerine bird species has been chronicled in the folk tales of the Toda tribe and is a constant in the jungles of the Nilgiris. The Pied Bush Chat is found across Asia. You are more likely to find it perched on small bushes, low trees and shrubs, looking for insects in the ground – its favourite delicacy. The male birds are black with a white rump. Their lower bellies and wing patches are also white. Females are brown with slight streaks. The Pied Bush Chat does not grow more than 13 centimetres tall.

Weaver Bird

Look for bright yellow feathers in the foliage of Kabini’s forests. The Baya Weaver, as the name suggests weaves elaborate nests using material like grass pieces, hay, twigs and leaves. These gourd-shaped dwellings hover strongly attached to the branches of trees with an entrance that faces downwards. The nest of the weaver bird is divided into different chambers – showcasing the complex engineering skills that come to these birds as a natural instinct.

Golden Oriole

Another glorious looking bird that calls Kabini home is the Golden Oriole. Apart from its distinctive plumage, mainly yellow with a bit of black and a tinge of red, this bird is a fast flyer – it can swoop at 40 kms an hour, quite a feat for a fairly small species. These birds love their insects, nectar and fruits – try to capture a feeding oriole if you have brought your camera along. Just like most other birds, they play a role in the dispersion of seeds in the forest. Golden Orioles have been caught eating lizards too.

Hoopoes

Another highlight when birding in Kabini is the hoopoe. Hoopoes are a family of brightly coloured birds, many of which are found in the jungles of Kabini. Their most distinctive features are the crown on the head and the patterned plumage which is a blend of pink and brown. They are extremely popular amongst the birders of Kabini and you can sight them in most places across the reserve.

Apart from the birds of Kabini wildlife includes many large animals like leopards and jackals. The river landscape provides a venue for coracle rides and treks. Nagarhole National Park is also close by, a famous tiger reserve of Karnataka.
Find the best resorts in Kabini for a memorable birding experience. There are some other destinations closer to Bangalore where one can enjoy birding and nature trails. A stay at Nandi Hills can include some early morning bird watching while there are resorts in Kanakapura Road where one can explore the lush surroundings and encounter vibrant birds.

5 places to traverse near Kanakpura

27 February  |  Listicles

If you are looking forward to exploring some offbeat locations near Bangalore over an extended weekend, then look no further than the regions near Kanakpura. The town of Kanakpura is easy to access from Bangalore via Kanakpura road or by taking the NICE road. The best places to visit near Kanakpura are accessible year round but are breath-taking during the monsoon when the rivers are swollen and the greenery is vibrant.

     1.  Arkavati River

The Arkavati River originates at Nandi Hills and merges with the Cauvery river at Sangama. Sangama and Mekedatu are the most awe-inspiring sights in the state of Karnataka. The two rivers at Sangama have different densities and colors and is a joy to cross after a particularly bountiful monsoon. Coracle boats dot the banks and will help you traverse for a nominal charge. 3.5km from Sangama is Mekedatu which is a narrow and deep gorge and is among the most popular Kanakpura tourist places. The river rushes across this point making it a lovely spot to view the might of nature.

     2.  Kallahalli Sri Venkateswara Swamy Temple

The Kallahalli Temple is also known as small Tirupati and houses a 7000-year-old idol of Sri Venkateshwara Swamy. One must visit this temple during the Maha Brahma Ratotsava or the Chariot Festival where the main idol is placed on a large and ornate chariot which is then carried across the area around the temple. It is said that Lord Venkateshwara leaves Tirupathi to traverse through time and space in order to become one with the idol at Kallahalli. Booking resorts near Bangalore gives you the flexibility to visit all these temples at your leisure.

    3.  Turahalli Forest Viewpoint off Kanakapura road

A great place for the adventurous, Turahalli forest ideal for anyone interested in hiking, cycling, or rock climbing. This forest has managed to stay off the grid with only a few visitors making a beeline for the same. This means that there are no hawkers allowing the place to stay clean with no garbage littering the place. At the viewpoint is a small temple amongst some boulders and greenery and gives you stunning views of the city. Book the best resorts in Bangalore and plan your visit so that you can catch the sunset from this vantage point.

     4.   Bilikal Rangaswamy Betta

Popularly known as BR Hills, this site is a wonder of nature. With a delicate ecosystem that is protected by the forest department, the region is thriving with local flora and fauna. The best time to visit BR Hills is during the monsoon when there will be a fine drizzle to accompany your many walks through nature. However, you must take care to not walk around alone in the evening once it becomes dark, as there are predatory animals residing in the forest. Another place to visit in the hills is the temple which has stunning views of the area.

     5.   Chunchi Falls Kanakpura

The Chunchi falls is located on the banks of the Arkavati River before Sangama. The area around the falls is covered by a deciduous forest which comes alive during the monsoon season. Near the waterfall is a watchtower from which you will be able to enjoy a 360 degree of the rocky terrain.

All You Need To Know About Outbound Training Program

20 February  |  Listicles

Have you noticed that some of the best resorts in Bangalore end up hosting office team building exercises? There was a time when company sponsored retreats were few and often dismissed as a fad. However, these days, we see numerous enterprises conducting corporate outbound training on a regular basis as it brings results.

What Is Outbound Training Program?

Outbound training is a method of improving the productivity of employees through outdoor experiences rather than at the worksite. Based on the science of experiential learning, it helps employees learn by reflecting on their experiences and critical analysis. It has the same effect on an individual as on the job training, simulator training and role-playing. The Outbound training activities list is vast and consists games such as Blind Square, helium stick, twister, and many others. The training program is based on scientific research and is not a random assortment of outdoor activities. The activities incorporate concepts and techniques such as lateral thinking and David Kolb’s experiential learning model.

Photo Credit: Discovery Village

Why is Outbound Training Important?

Why is it that you get trained better from resorts in Bangalore for team outing than at the office? It is because an office environment hampers creativity as the mind feels stifled and is closed to a new perspective. Also, some of us may get sleepy sitting stationary and fail to derive the full benefits of the training program. A neutral and new environment, one which is surrounded by greenery, lets the mind come out of its shell. It helps you identify performance enhancing behaviour which will become apparent during the training. This needs to be registered and repeated. At the same time, negative behaviour can also be identified and discouraged.

Photo Credit: Discovery Village

How It Can Make A Difference In Your Day To Day Work At Office?

Outbound training works on different skills such as leadership, interpersonal communication, motivation and creativity. On an average, half a day can address two learning objectives. Taking up more activities in a single day can saturate the learning process and become counter-productive. It is up to the Human Resources to talk to the managers and find out the areas of skill development. This is then relayed to the training agency which compiles an outbound training program to suit the company objectives.

Below are some of the effects that you can see after the training programme:

  • The activities are designed in such a way that it fosters a sense of camaraderie among its participants.
  • There is no solution that is given to the participants when taking up an activity. It is up to you and your co-workers to find a way out through planning. This helps in improvisation and skill development.
  • It helps build up a team spirit which can help the business attain their objectives through synergy.

Note that one outbound training session is not enough, and feedback is required. If companies take you to the best corporate resorts, they need to do it often to capitalize on the outbound training.

5 Tips for Planning the Dream Destination Wedding

08 February  |  Listicles

A lot of effort goes into making a wedding event memorable. A wedding in India is an important event where the entire family and friends come under one roof to celebrate the special occasion. For the hosts, it becomes a matter of pride to have a dream wedding which is remembered for a long time. You don’t need a destination wedding planning guide or be a professional to make your event successful.

Here are some simple tips to make your destination wedding a memorable one.

1. Book your marriage destination in advance:

The destination holds the key to a grand wedding. In India, the wedding season is marked by a substantial number of couples taking the vows of eternity, which makes finding a good place very difficult. Booking the marriage destination should be the first item on your destination-wedding checklist. Advance bookings will not only give a cost advantage, they will also allow you to plan the wedding ceremonies and functions, down to the last detail, and avoid last minute tension and rush.

2. Select an appropriate decoration:

Select a theme and decoration which is in sync with the wedding resort selected. This will not only make the location more relevant but will also allow you to enjoy the place to the fullest. If you plan to book Kabini resorts in the jungles of Kabini, then going for a theme which is in sync with nature, like a tropical setting, is most appropriate.

3. Choose a dress that fits the destination:

The idea of a destination wedding is to submerge yourself in the beauty of the place. If you have planned a beach destination, then the dressing should be in line with the surroundings. Similarly, if the wedding is in a royal setting, then the dress should be heavy and match with the royal theme.

4. Put local food options on the menu:

Adding local cuisine to the wedding menu will give the guests a taste of local flavour and also help you save on the destination wedding cost since the local chefs will be able to prepare the dishes easily.
As the famous saying goes, the route to heart passes through the stomach, food is one item which people cherish and remember the most at a wedding. Good food is the key to make any event a memorable one. Hence, pay extra attention to the quality and mix of food items in the wedding.

5. Schedule time to relax:

Most marriages end up becoming tiring with back to back ceremonies and events, leaving little time for people to relax and enjoy the destination. Plan a schedule which offers some time to relax and soak in the pleasures offered by the location. Resorts in Bangalore, like most other places, offer a lot of adventure activities, sports facilities and water slides within the resort premises itself. Setting up a sports competition between the bride and the groom side or conducting some fun games between the two parties can be a good ice-breaker session which will be enjoyed by everyone.

A destination wedding requires careful planning and an even better execution to make the wedding an event to remember for life. By taking these small yet simple steps, you can ensure that your wedding ceremony will be cherished by all the guests for the years to come.
