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.

We booked A/c 2 tickets in A/c bus. Going from Banglore to Coorg was a pain as that day there was some strike in Karnataka due to which we had to travel in a local bus and there was no one to assist us for the same. But coming back from there was a good experience.

I took the Mysore road and covered the distance in 4. 5 hours with 3 stoppages. Overall, the roads are good. Bangalore to Mysore there are lots of barricades which spoils the drive. Left bangalore at 6. 30 Am. Had breakfast in Bidadi (Tate Idlies). Went to Mysore, had to pick-up a friend and drove via Hunsur - Medikeri.

We used Nice Road to reach Mysore road. We started morning 5:45 Am from electronic city. Because it was starting of long weekend we found huge traffic block on electronic city entrance, the queue almost reach till Hosur Road. So we took an alternate road (through Jigni Road) to Bannerghatta entry to Mysore Road. Even Mysore Road was full of traffic. With heavy number of speed breakers and narrow corridors on all towns in between added hurdles to already heavy packed traffic day.

But after Srirangapatna, it was better. From there on we enjoyed the less traffic travel. We went through Hunsur, Gonikoppal. After Hunsur we deviated from highway and went through plantations and forests. Which was really very nice and fresh air with very less traffic. And the roads are very nicely done too.

After you turned away from Mysore city area there are less good eateries on the Highway. You need to reach Gonikoppal for next nice eateries. Even Gonikoppal only have two or three eateries, which is not really bad ones, can consider as good if we are really hungry.

We used the help of Google to reach the destination. Google was really helpful, other than couple of places where we lost our connectivity. There the locals were really helpful.

Amazing drive from Bangalore to reach Coorg. Very good roads and best part it was all toll free. It takes almost 5 hours to reach add 30 mins for break. They have some very amazing dhabas on the way where we had hearty lunch. Also some wine shop just in case you want to pick-up some for during your stay.

Travelled from Bangalore to Madikeri third weekend of July, 2015.

Travelled by road in Honda Civic.

Route taken : Bangalore - Srirangapatnam - Hunsur - Madikeri

Return : Madikeri - Kushalnagar - Ramnathpura - Arakalgud - Channarayapattana - Kunigal - Nelamangala.

Return route is advisable because : Highly scenic. Farms.Countryside.

- less traffic as compared to Bangalore - Mysore Road. Mysore is a torture due to continuous towns in between. Two wheeler traffic and speed breakers on a Highway!!

- You hit Mangalore- Bangalore Highway which is a breeze.

Time taken : While going we started around 7 Am and were at Kushalnagar by 12 noon. But the road was very frustrating!

While coming back to Bangalore. Started around 4 Pm and reached Yeshwantpur around 8:30 Pm!!

Pit stops : Ample fuel pumps. But don't expect them to accept cards. Only Mysore road few pumps near Bidadi might take Credits Cards. Better to carry cash for the road trip.

Eating joints : Mysore Road is quite entertaining and has ample Kamat style joints.

The Ramnathpura Road has less hotels. Once you hit the Mangalore- Bangalore National Highway then "Malnad" is pretty famous and quick. Its near Devihalli Village Toll.
