Top five resorts with adventure activities in Bangalore.
I am sure when there was a total lockdown imposed, you may have observed a sudden drop in the air pollution, decrease in noise pollution and with that, the lake and river water finally were able to clean themselves. The almighty Ganges had never been more cleaner even after funneling thousands of crore rupees into the cleaning project. In fact, our very own Ulsoor Lake in Bangalore got cleaner due to Lockdown and the pollution level reached near zero. Owing to which the Hight Court questioned the government as to what they are going to do to keep it that way.
Since the time things have gone back to normal we have been more in touch with ourselves as well as the nature. I realise it is very tone-deaf of me to say that with a straight face when the number of active cases are on all time high, but if you step out of the house you might even come across people who are roaming around without masks – calling themselves mask vigilantes, or people who wear masks on their chin. Best ones are those who take their masks down while talking to you. Defeating not only the purpose of the mask but common sense too. You can’t help but laugh at them and politely step away as they come any closer.
With covering mask comes great responsibilities. You reward yourself each day when you follow social distancing and sanitize your hands. Some of the best resorts in Bangalore have been operational for over a month now and they are trying their best to make it a point to provide the best service and adventure activities amid maintaining necessary precautions.

Camping tent is a temporary shield made of nylon or canvas that accommodates at least two people. An ideal tent size is 10 by 10 which is also high on performance and can be easily set up. Mostly, resorts and camping companies set up commercially viable tents that can be used for a longer time as opposed to the ones that campers carry with them.
- Types of Camping tents

Camping Huts are permanent structures made of concrete or wood which are then covered with a canopy of thick canvas of nylon to complete the look. These types of tents are usually found in colder regions where the outside temperature is mostly likely to drop to unbearable levels and the thick coating of concrete offers protection from the cold weather.
Some places even offer a weekend getaway in the form of sites. Meaning, if you have your own tents, you can set them up in their property by paying a nominal fee. These services are commonly known as BYOT, meaning bring your own tents. Having said that, services available along with BYOT will be limited to water, using lavatory, and security.
