Since the route to Glen View is via the Bandipur national park, we would advise all guests driving to Glen View to cross the Bandipur gate before 9 pm on any day. For example, a drive from Bangalore would take approximately six hours. Hence one will need to start from Bangalore at 2:30 pm so as to safely cross the gate before 9 pm.

The gate re-opens at 6:30 am every day.
