Fulfill your childhood or life long dream of flying at this awesome place in Jakkur. It may not be the plane you had dreamed of  but comes close to giving you the thrill of flying. Microlight

flying gives you the adrenaline rush like no other. Being in the sky is one of the best feelings that not many can experience. 

A microlight plane is an aircraft used for recreational purposes and can carry 2 people. It has  short take-offs and landings. You get to co-pilot and maybe land the plane as well. The time duration of the flight is short, 10-20 minutes. In this short time, you get to have one of the most amazing experiences. You get to fly! 

Just imagining it is making you excited, isn’t it? Actually experiencing it can be a lot more exciting and a whole lotta fun!

Dragon’s breath

Pretending to smoke by exhaling fog? You can pretend better and breathe like a smoking dragon at this Ice Cream store in Koramangala, called Ice breakers (not the pick-up lines). They make some of the best ice cream rolls in Bangalore.

Available in many different flavours garnished like a beautiful garden, the rolls don’t just melt in your mouth as other ice cream rolls do. They are like fireworks bursting with a mouthful of flavours and textures. 

Try their dragon’s breath, a nitrogen ice cream roll that lets you smoke!  This smoking hot cold dessert is a must try and fun to do. The place is nice too, with good ambience.

Sunrise in Lalbagh

Though the famed title “Garden city” has become less relevant today, citizens still cherish and try their best to preserve the beautiful gardens in the city. Lalbagh, Cubbon park, sankey tank, ulsoor lake, are some of the most beloved spots to relax, detox the mind and spend quality time with family and friends.

The best time to visit these gardens and parks is in the early morning and late evening hours. 

The most precious place of them all is the Lalbagh. The city’s most treasured garden, visit the huge park during early morning hours. The sight and smell of the dawn are like an elixir that resets your system and rejuvenates your spirit. The fog, the mist, sunlight peeking through the trees, the chill, and the energy, are a perfect concoction to reset your system. The lake offers a spectacular view to watch the sunrise. Heavy feels!
