From Bangalore, we took the Nice Road and the Mysore Road. This road is in good condition, and passes through several cities such as Channapatna, Mandya and Srirangapatna. Being a busy route, there are a lot of petrol pumps and restaurants along this route. Just a few kilometers before Mysore, you need to turn right towards Hunsur. From Hunsur, the route diverges depending on which part of Coorg you are headed to.

The Bangalore - Mysore route is quite busy and traffic gets quite heavy during the day. Also, reaching Nice Road from any point within Bangalore can get quite time consuming. Hence, it is advisable to leave really early and hit Nice road by about 6.30 am.

We had to wait for 1 hour before we were taken in a minibus from our boarding point to a different location. There another 30 minutes before the bus started. It was a Non-AC bus. The bus reached the destination on time and the journey was also not bad.

We went to coorg via Mysore on a rented Pulsar-200NS. We set out of Bangalore at 10PM after Office and dinner. After exiting Bangalore the highway had less traffic. One could easily cruise at speed of 80-100 KMPH. Due to our inexperience in riding long distances, we took occasional breaks every 45-60 minutes to stretch and relax.Our breaks became more relaxing due to the presence of lot CCDs and KFCs on the route which remain open and busy throughout the night. We booked into a lodge at Mysore to rest before riding for coorg. The morning sun and the flora along the highway made it quite a sight. The last 4-5 Km were a climb up to reach the hill station. We reached around afternoon and after having lunch rode around the place. It is a delight to spend a evening there. One must definitely visit the waterfalls around the place.

The hotel was near to the bus stop and had quite a reasonable price. The room was of good size for a group of 3-4 friends to stay in. It provides parking space and security for boarders vehicles. It is situated near the main market place. The front office was very helpful in highlighting the...more »

We landed in Bangalore airport at 12:30 PM and straight away got into our rented TATA INDICA and left for Coorg. After driving for around 20 minutes we reached ring road which would take us to the Mysore highway. This is where we got into a traffic jam, for two hours. We were told that a flyover is being built for the last 5 Years with no commitment as to when this would be completed.

We reached the Mysore road intersection at 3:10 Pm, after which the journey was smooth. We did make a stop for tea and snacks, where we found clean toilets. By the time we reached Madikeri it was 8 PM. There are no street lights in the surrounding areas of Madikeri.

It was very nice experience to drive on this road the traffic was less. It was taken 4 to 4.5 hrs to reach the destination from Bangalore. The moment we reach Madikeri was nice spot.

Coorg, the Scotland of India is one of the best places to visit in the entire South India. Known for its wonderful climate and coffee estates, this was one crazy trip we pulled off.

We travelled in the 2nd week of November. It is very easy to find the location and road was good. The welcome drink and staff's hospitality was very friendly. A resort sized moderate, but option for evening program/ performance is more. Snacks with coffee/tea was nice experience in the evening...more »
