Yes, we all know that Bangalore is a concrete jungle now. It is a stark contrast of what it used to be before. It used to be called as a the “Garden City”, now it is termed famously as the “Silicon City” because of all the information technology companies that have come and set up offices here. Residents of Bangalore who were here before the information technology revolution will know the real Bangalore where nature used to overshadow the manmade structures. Even in this current Bangalore, you can still experience some breath taking natural beauty and relive the old days of Bangalore. One of these natural beauties that you can witness is a sky full of stars from the outskirts of Bangalore.
For this experience of a sky full of stars, you need to go on overnight camping near Bangalore. There are several such trips that you can be a part of around Bangalore.
