Driving to Mysore; A Journey to the Cultural Capital

Driving to Mysore-Chispa MagazineWhen in Bangalore, a trip to Mysore is always recommended with the open highway and countryside greeting the adventure-seeker. The 150 km route between the cities is dotted with many towns and attractions. Mandya is a town that falls on the Bangalore-Mysore route, which is famous for its sugarcane plantations, while the KRS dam is a major attraction in Mysore. Most travelers choose a self-drive Bangalore to Mysore cab for a more authentic and comfortable travel experience.

There are many advantages of a self-drive car when compared to traditional taxis. Privacy is always a welcome treat during a long journey, along with the extra space. Group travel is more fun when it is with just friends and family. Hiring a car rental also provides travelers with transport that is at their availability and convenience, the whole journey. Just like every Indian city, Mysore’s public transport can also be inconsistent. Whether traveling for leisure or business, a rented car saves a lot of time for the driver, which would have otherwise been spent on figuring out local transport options.

Attractions in Mysore. The royal city of Mysore is a cultural center of the region. Located outside the main city, the Chamundi Hills is covered with verdant forests and winding roads. The hill-top temple is one of the most important shrines of South India. Much has been written and chronicled about the Mysore Palace, but its grandeur can only be understood when witnessed in real life. A lit up palace during Dussehra is an extra special sight. The Mysore Zoo is home to a myriad of species from across the country and the world. This town is also a gateway to the hills of Coorg and the Nagarhole National Park, a place of pristine wilderness.

Explore Mysore by Car. Modern car rental companies like Zoomcar are offering an affordable end-to-end transport solution for customers looking to explore the various attractions of Mysore. Customers can now choose from a variety of cars ranging from hatchbacks and sedans to SUVs. 24/7 on-road support adds a layer of convenience and security, something that isn’t available with taxis.

The city of Mysore is a dynamic blend of history, architecture and local cultures. There are surprises all along the way and a self-drive car is the best way to experience this historically rich destination.
