The distance between Bangalore and Coorg, is almost 260 km. It takes a little more than five hours, to reach Coorg from Banagalore, by road. There are no direct trains running between these two stations, so the best way to reach Coorg from Bangalore, is by driving. The route is as follows: Bangalore Bidadi Ramanagaram Chennapatna Maddur Mandya Srirangapatna Mysore - Yelwal Hunsur Kempalapura Piriyapatna Bylakuppe Kushalnagara Suntikoppa MadikeriCoorg. One can avoid entering Mysore City and escape the traffic by taking a bypass from Srirangapatna. Barring a 30 km stretch, just before reaching Coorg and the bypass, the road is in excellent condition.

Climate was very good and the road was also fine and we went via Mysore Madikeri road and lot's of greenery was around. There were dhabas and restaurant available for food and road was quite pleasant. It took 5 hours to reach to the destination and it's a nice hill station and was a relaxing trip.
Wanted to experience the travel apart from self driving. What else is best than Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) service. Reached 2 hrs before expected arrival time (as per the confirmation from bus conductor himself). Nice sleep at night and morning is energetic and travel was good and gave the edge to wind-up all work thoughts.
It was a comfortable journey. I loved travelling in the Mysore Road as it was empty when I was going there. All the amenities were available on my way and night journey was also pretty safe. It a 4.5-6.5 hours journey from Bangalore to Kushalnagar (Coorg).
Travelled through Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) AC bus. A non AC semi sleeper will also be a good option. Best time to travel is during the night as you can have your entire next day for tour. Bus route is mostly national highway so didn't had any problem at all. Its best to carry your own eatables as most probably the bus will not stop at any restaurants/hotels.
We started off from Bangalore Via Mysore road and took around 6 hrs to reach Coorg. The roads are nice, but too many speed breakers for an highway. Make sure you bypass Mysore Road ( User GPS), lots of restaurant's and coffee days on the highway so no need to worry about food.
