Coorg is perhaps one of the best getaways from Bangalore as coffee plantations, cascading waterfalls, cool misty hills, green valleys are some of the highlights. You cannot reach Coorg via Flight/Train, it has to be road as nearest airport is at Mangalore and railway station at Mysore.
I went for a family trip in Oct’15. A long awaited trip to the place heard the most in Karnataka. Hired a self driven car from Zoom Car as I love to drive in any terrain.
Coorg is a place where you get accommodation from budget to luxury resorts like The Tamara Coorg, Coorg Cliffs Resorts, Heritage Resort Coorg, etc.
We stayed at Coorg Cliffs Resorts where we had really nice experience (food, ambience, staff). The resort is little difficult to reach if you cannot drive on hills.
Places to visit in Coorg: Iruppu Falls, Dubare Elephant Camp, Abbey Falls, Raja’s Seat, Omkareshwara Temple, Nagarhole National Park. Few places are in two different directions, hence you could plan one direction in one day. We were told by resort to return by 6.00 in evening as it would be difficult to drive. However, staying at resort in evening cool misty breeze is wonderful as you’re away from city life.
