Here is a photograph of buses that run inside Bannergatta National Park of Bangalore City in Karnataka.

This Photo Journey has some of the old photographs of Bannergatta National Park in Banglore (In Karnataka State of India). Two years, I visited Banglore for some official purpose and had a weekend to explore the city. This Photo Journey is one of the parts of weekend fun we had at Banglore -Bannerghatta National Park is situated approximately 20 km south of Bangalore, Karnataka, India. The journey to the park takes nearly one and a half hours from Bangalore. This hilly place is the home for one of the richest natural, zoological reserves. The 25 thousand acres zoological park makes this a major tourist attraction of Bangalore.Bannergatta National Park surroundings are a biological reserve belonging to the forest department and are home to elephant, leopards, deer and various other animals. The reserve belongs to an Elephant Corridor and is connected with the BR Hills, Sathyamangalam forest areas extending all the way up to Waynad.There is a huge number of Tigers and White Tigers inside Bannergatta National Park. It was awesome to see Tigers after numerous failed visits to Jim-Corbett, Ranthamore, Kikar National Parks.Visitors can reach Bannergatta National Park very easily by using the public transport. City buses starting from the heart of Bangalore City, with route number 365, keep plying back and forth to the National Park every 20 minutes. The newly released Air-Conditioned Volvo bus no.V365 makes the whole journey a very comfortable and pleasurable one.The bus runs via corporation and Shantinagar bus stand to Dairy circle where it joins the Bannerghatta road - Route and SchedulApart from that route No. 366 connects frequently from City market via Lakkasandra, and Dairy circleRoute of Big-10-4(Numbered G-4 for Green colour) plies every 10 minutes once from Brigade Road junction to Bannerghatta National Park. The frequency of 365,366 and G-4 geenrally increases on the day of holidays for benefit of commuters.

The Mammals are left freely in the forest and the visitors are taken around the forest in a well caged mini-bus to view these animals.
