Kodagu or Coorg, as named by the British, is a city on hill station with lush green forests, waterfalls, and historical places. Bangalore to Madikeri is a 5-hour journey on road. On reaching the hill station you’ll check into a resort and get ready for sightseeing. Travel for around 8 km to reach Abbey Falls, a beautiful spot, amidst thick forest and coffee plantations. Omkareshwara Temple is a rejuvenating experience, while Raja Seat showcases an interesting collection of flowers and water fountains, and gives you a bird view of lush green hills and agricultural lands.
On the second day you’ll see two pilgrimage spots of Kodagu –Talakaveri and Bhagamandala. Talakaveri is the place on the Brahmagiri hill range where the River Kaveri emerges. Bhagamandaleshwara temple is located on the banks of the River Kaveri in Bhagamandala.
On day three you’ll reach Dubare Elephant Camp, located on the banks of the River Kaveri. This place is sure to keep you on toes with elephants roaming in the camp. Take elephant rides in the forest enjoying the sight of wild animals. It is a great place for adventure trekkers.
On day four, check out from the resort, reach Kushalnagar and visit Kaveri Nisarghadhama. Walk along the hanging rope bridge, sight wild animals such as deer, sambhar, rabbit, and elephant in this place. A twist to your travel would be to visit the Tibetan settlement in Bylakuppe. From Kushalnagar you’ll head toward Mysore from where you’ll be taking departure to Bangalore.
