Me along with my office team had gone on 5th May,2011, in a day package worth Rs 1400 per head (including tax), which included breakfast, lunch, paintall, swimming activities (with safety jacket), kayaking boat ride & couple of team activites. It excluded transportation cost.

Package: (10AM-5:30PM) : Rs 1400: Breakfast, lunch, paintall, swimming activities (with safety jacket), kayaking boat ride & couple of team activities. It excluded transportation cost.

Location: Set on catchment of Manchinebele dam, its a beautiful location surrounded by green hills & tiny villages.The place actually comes in Ramnagara district & is approximately 40KMs from Majestic. After Rajarajeswari College, one needs to take a right turn & go off ~10Kms to reach the place.

Hihglight: Of course was Painball, a gun battle game. What makes it more interesting is the playground which is natural hill site (unlike Paintball of Bannerghata Road, where things are artificial) & one has to use rocks, bushes as hide outs. Second of course was Kayak boat ride. Since, the place is new & least crowded, so I guess they gave us unlimited ride time, which of course turned out to be icing on the cake. The lake formed due to dam was neat & clean & fit for sleeping (of course on safety jacket) for hours. The lake was quite deep (goes to 100ft), even in peak summer.

Otherhighlight: a) The site has camping facility & other water sport activities. b) Good place to watch some rare species of bird. We ourselves , although not being ornithologist, sighted some really cool birds.

Verdict: I have been to Bheemeswari, Anandham, Pegasus, Savanadurga (which falls under same category). No doubt, this is the place to be & spend some money on for cool, relaxed weekend. Compared to others, this palce is certainly worth money. Since being a new site, it is less crowded, food was good & volunteers were very friendly & co-operative. But only time will tell, if it drown under “Bangalore effect”.

Anyways, till then enjoy this place for a perfect weekend getaway & it’s a Thumps UP from my side.
