I was mentally quite disturbed, and the work stress was making me go bonkers, and that's when I decided to pack my bag and lose myself into this beauty. My friend who was staying in Bangalore asked me to book a direct flight from Chandigarh to Banglore. It was hell pricy as August being the peak season, moreover it was an on the spot booking. I needed a quick escape so without giving it a second thought I booked it. I reached Bangalore on 13th morning and took a bus to reach the hotel. My friend had booked Hyatt hotel for me and another friend of ours who was supposed to come from Hyderabad. The hotel, though provided us with all the luxurious amenties but the size of the room was quite disappointing. It was too small still we managed to have a comfortable overnight stay at this place. Next morning, we were set to head to Coorg. We had breakfast at a south Indian Restaurant. Though, I am not a great fan of south Indian cuisine but to my surprise it was quite tasty. Our friend had to join us that day itself. On 14th, at around 10:00 am we set off for our journey. The only annoying thing we came across was the Bangalore traffic. Hence, I would suggest when in a metro city like Bangalore, always plan to leave a bit early to avoid such hassles. On our journey, we stopped at a dhaba and had a hearty lunch. We managed to reach Coorg by 4. The moment we reached our place of stay, it started to rain. The place was a huge resort by the name of Jungle lodge resort. It was surrounded by a serene lake. The view from our resort was mesmerizing. We had tea and some snacks. And then by 8 dinner was served. It was a gala buffet and to our surprise there was a live band. The singers were singing melodious old hindi songs. It was a full moon night. We cherished the beauty of the landscape to its core. We stayed there for 1 night. For 15th, we had chosen a homestay in the midst of a jungle. There was a lady who cooked homemade food for us. The best part about this stay was the waterfall which was around 250m from our place of stay. It was quite islotated hence, there wasn't any human except for us. We enjoyed a nice picnic by ourselves there. It was monsoon time. Hence, we witnessed rain every now and then. Driving on wet roads, though is supposed to be a bit risky but experiencing lush green valleys all around compensated for it. My friend gave me a chance to drive the automatic car. Though, it was my first time but I enjoyed it to the fullest. We even purchased coffee from the tea gardens factory. While returning back to our stay in the evening, we came across a cute small cafe. It served such amazing coffee with a beautiful view of a small lake flowing beside it. On 16th, we again had another place to stay which was a sort of a hut in the middle of a jungle. It looked scary at first but all are fears vanished when we saw many other travellers around us. There were many trekking tracks going from that property and we did some hiking and trekking too. We visited some tourist attractions like Abbey falls, Rajas's seat. We even came across sunset point and admired the picturesque beauty of the place from it. Our trip to Coorg ended here with lifelong memories to cherish. On 17th, we headed back to Bangalore. I stayed at a hotel near the airport as I had to fly back to Chandigarh on 18th. By the time I reached my hotel, all my stress had vanished. All I was left with were the lush green valleys, the soothing rain droplets, delicious south Indian food and above all the aromatic coffee.
