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.

I felt choosing Greenline Travels was a good decision. They were a little slow at the start but had made it up by the time we reached Madikeri. The toilets where we needed them were in good conditions, a vital issue in traveling overnight by bus. We were a little apprehensive, having never gone by a sleeper previously, but it was a good option to take.

The roads are very good for most parts from Bengaluru-Mysuru to Bylakuppe via Periyapatna. Driving to Madikeri is also very comfortable. If you are going off road, then be prepared to find dirt tracks and potholes and limited eating options in villages and towns. Locals speak only Kannada, Carry all basic supplies and mid-journey snacks you may require including personal medication and mosquito repellent. Stopping to walk through the forest is not recommended. Wildlife sanctuaries in the vicinity like Nagarahole are closed from 6 pm-6 am.

Visited this place in the beginning of May. The plan to cover Coorg over a week end. In general it might take more than two days to explore destination like Coorg. However we wanted to cover what ever possible in two days that includes our journey from Bangalore to Coorg as well. As I said, it was last minute plan, we started looking for accommodation in the evening time of Friday through an agent/guide suggested by Holiday IQ guys. However that lady came back with a surprise telling us that whole Coorg was sold out. It was little hard to believe but true. So it is suggested to book a good resort/hotel well in advance. However through other website we could book room in hotel by Friday night after tossing go/not-to-go many times in that evening.

We started early in the morning from Bangalore and could pass Mandya by 8 Am. Had good breakfast from "up south" and started again. We need to take a detour right after "Srirangapattanam" into a road which takes you to KRS Gardens. My suggestion would be have your navigator on once you reach Srirangapatnam. This is a link road (Bypass) which will connect Bangalore-Mysure Highway to Mysure-Mangalore Highway. This is a single road and little bumpy but you can manage. I have left my navigator on from this point till we reach you stay.

Our first stop was at Golden Temple. It is again advised to get help from navigator to reach this place. This place located very close to Kusalnagar. Nice Budda Temple and worth visiting. It was noon by the time we came out of the temple and finished our lunch from there. There is Tibetan Market Complex but didn't spend any time to shop.

Then we headed to NISARGADAMA. This is located right after Kusalnagar town. There was an elephant ride which we took. Dear park, getting down to Cauvery River were other attractions. Overall, it was a good place to stop by. It can take couple of hours to visit this place but one can spend half a day if they have time.

We reached our hotel by 3 Pm and found it was right next to Raja's seat. Raja's seat is a view point and very much visited place in Coorg. We laid for an hour and visited Raja's seat on that day evening. Ride on toy train was okay but there is nothing seriously amusing in that ride. I think one should calm down and stop rationalizing this place with that place to start enjoying the place that visit as is. Finished dinner and went of to bed to end day-1. Driving in ghat sections of Coorg was delightful.

On day-2: Started our day by visiting Lord Shiva Temple. Then visited tomb of ancient ruler's of Coorg before Tippu and headed to Abby Falls. There were not much of water in Abby Falls as it was month of May. Visited Dubare Elephant Camp on the return journey along with boating in Cauvery River (it is actually called rafting but it didn't fell like rafting, so I called it boating. You might have to visit in rainy season for the real fun of rafting).

Overall, it was a good place to visit!!

We had booked an AC Tavera. The driver was quite experienced and drove us safely. However, the roads are not in a good condition for which the ride wasn't smooth. It's because of the roads that took us 1-2 hrs extra to reach our destination. Communication to the sightseeing destinations were also challenging as the roads were too bumpy, twisting and turns with bad road condition.

The drive was indeed great! The route from Bengaluru to Mysore and onto Coorg was very good. It had nice restaurants. We had a good lunch break in one of those restaurants near Hunsur (Forgot the name) with our little one and headed towards our resort.
