A nice one day outing at Krishnagiri Dam

Looking for a quick outing with family and friends. Head to KRP or Krishnagiri Reservoir Project dam, situated around 7 to 8 Kms from Krishangiri. Not very far from Bangalore. It is not so tiring quick one day trip from Bangalore.
Here are some quick information which can help you decide on this location.

Distance from Bangalore : approx 95 Kms
Travel time (one way) : 1 hour and 30 mins during early morning, 2 to 3 hrs during peak traffic hours
Road Conditions: Very good
Parking available : yes
Food: Limited options
What all to see there : Dam, park
Route: Bangalore -> Hosur -> Krishangiri -> KRP

We had some guests over the weekend due to kids holidays and hence we wanted to take them out. Every body wanted to go out of town. While searching around we stumbled on this place. Pictures looked good and hence decided to try it out.

We started a bit late. By the time we could start, it was already 09 AM. It took almost an hour for us to touch Hosur. From there its around 1 hour.

The drive to Krishangiri is cool. Driving on NH7 is breeze. Once you cross Krishangiri keep a watch for KRP marking. Approx 10Ks from Highway is the dam.
Driving towards dam is a treat to eyes. Lots of greenery and fresh air.

Once you reach the dam, you will see a park. After the park is the dam. Park the vehicle in front of the gate.
The park is good. Kids will enjoy.
