Have been planning to travel to Coorg for a long time with different groups of people. However never it has been successful until today. So there are 4 of us travelling to Coorg by car. Just a 1 day trip. We booked car from one of the local travel agents at 10 Rs. per km. So overall for a day the expense came out to be 7600 Rs. for travelling including sightseeing.
We started our trip around 6.30 am and took some dry fruits for consuming during travel. After about 200 kms of journey stopped at a shop for tea.
Around 1 pm we reached Kushalnagar, the town closest to Madikeri, Coorg. We visited the Namdroling Monastery. The View and the environment of the monastery mesmerised us. The sky was clear and the sun was shining brightly.
We spent around an hour at the monastery and moved on to visit the Kaveri Nisharga Dhama. The name was catchy so decided to pay a visit. Ticket prices were a nominal 10 Rs. We went inside and walked through Bamboo forest, visited the deer Park and the Kaveri river Entry. Dint find anything exciting about the place except the bridge we had to cross.
We did not waste much of time over here and decided to reach out hotel in the heart of the city which was booked via Booking.com.
Everyone went into their rooms, ordered lunch which took quite some time to arrive and then after freshening up we visited the Madikeri Fort and the Government Museum in it. Nothing very exciting or adventurous about the place, however we spent around an hour here.
Next we went on to visit Raja's Seat which was a park and had a Flower Exhibition going. The View point here gave us a mesmerising view of the hills all around the city. The best part was waiting here to view the Sunset. Got amazing clicks for it.
After the View of the Sunset from Raja's seat, we decided to go back to our hotel and hang our boots for the day. Its been a tiring one.
We have plans to leave early morning tomorrow for sightseeing around 7 am.
