THE Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) is going out of its way to ensure that people are able to travel safely and conveniently to, and around, Mysore between September 19 and 28. It has made arrangments to ensure that services are not affected, especially between September 26 and 28, when hundreds of thousands visit Mysore from across the State and from outside.

The Giridarshini tour includes places like Bandipur, Gopalaswami Hill, Biligiriranga Hills and Chamundi Hills. The Jaladarshini tour includes Iruppu Falls, Abbe Falls and Rajas Seat in Madikeri, the national park in Nagarahole and the Golden Temple in Kushalnagara. For the tourist who is content with city sights, there is Nagaradarshini, which will take him to to Nanjangud, Uttanahalli, Chamundi Hills, the Dasara exhbition, Jaganmohan Palace, Srirangapatna and the Krishnaraja Sagar Dam.
