The Great Karnataka Road Trip

Yes, we love sharing our plans as much as we do, our stories.

Trippy Wheels is all set to embark on this 10-day long road trip across the unexplored Karnataka terrain, with a 3-night camp stay at Goa. Starting off at Bengaluru and back, we’re doubly excited and geared up. Definitely, a reward that comes with venturing into the unknown.

Amidst the unplanned, we play smart. We do our homework. We’ve marked out 6 top destinations enroute and listed out all that we want to spend our time doing at these places, before we touch base with you guys at Bengaluru again!

CHITRADURGA:

We’re starting out with exploring this tiny city tucked amidst Karnataka’s bold hills and valleys. A perfect spot for a remote caravan-park while we soak in the scenic beauty it claims to offer. An add-on treat we’re hoping to get is a glimpse of the prehistoric Chand Ravalli cave, which holds several secrets that we hope to unveil and of course a visit to the enchanting Chitradurga Fort that overlooks its valley.

BANAVASI:

Acclaimed to be among the oldest towns of Karnataka, we’re intrigued to get an experience of this place, which is why 2 nights here, does this place justice. A stroll through this town, for a first-hand feel of its heritage and a visit to the pineapple farms and factory is definitely worth getting on your bucket list.

DANDELI:

We’ve slotted time to bring out the daredevils in us! The cool and calm of the Dandeli valleys are known for offering some of the best outdoor adventure experiences. We’re definitely going to leave our trail over its fine trekking paths and cool off with some white water rafting.

GOA:

Goa, undeniably, being one of India’s favorite holiday destinations, we can’t wait to experience the 3-night camp stay at the beautiful Talpona beach under the Goan stars. Thank heavens we’re caravanning! We’re going to be stargazers by night, volleyballers by day(maybe) but sure foodies by day (blame that on Goa’s fresh seafood)

KUMTA:

Diversity in nature is what we love. Kumta offers scenic beauty of the lush tropical evergreen forests. Who wouldn’t relish that after all the fun under the beach sun!

MULKI:

For an aesthetic feed, we’re making a pit-stop at Mulki. Home to some of the most ancient temples of South-India, this place is sure to offer an element of nostalgia, with its age old temple culture on display.

And we’re back to base. Namma Bengaluru. A picture-perfect way to round off this road trip!

Stay tuned for pictures, stories and more.

Happy Trippin’!:)

The caravanning concept at TrippyWheels

By | Our Trips | No Comments

Won’t you agree on a real holiday or a weekend get-away being anything away from the familiar? A real break away from overwhelming itineraries, hotel check-ins, and most importantly the almost seemingly inescapable crowds.

Voicing the unheard, there are folks who miss out the joy of traveling simply because of the uneasiness that accompanies the rigid public transportation. Think what it may be like for the claustrophobics, the autistic, social anxiety .. the list goes on.

Which is why, Trippy Wheels is an answer to the real adventurous, specific and passionate travelers’ lot in India.

A peek into the caravan interiors

Trippy Wheels has a range of 6-seater vehicles that are re-designed to be caravans equipped for basic living. It comes with a kitchenette that holds all of your basic cooking ingredients and stove with a slidable counter for cooking, a cabinet for basic storage, a cozy napping space for 3, air-conditioned with fans for use while the engine is off!

There are designated areas as an option for safe and secure caravan pit-stops as well as tie-ups with homestay and campsites en route that allows renting of bathing and washing facilities at a minimal cost while you also have a safe caravan parking area with camping needs.

Who’s at the wheel

For the best of the caravanning experience, we recommend longer journeys, 5 days or more. And, to make that easier, Trippy Wheels has its own professional driver for hire but will also soon be rolling out the option of renting self-drive caravans for all you driving fanatics out there.
