So, here we are in Coorg, Scotland of India. Actually, we arrived midnight around 2 pm and checked into our pre-booked resort and slept. In the early morning we woke up and headed towards Mandalpatti by Jeep safari which was arranged from our resort. The roads were very much bumpy and in extremely poor condition but the view throughout the ride was breathtaking. After one hour of adventurous ride we reached Mandalpatti from where we had to trek 10 mins to reach the peak. The view after reaching was really mesmerizing. We both were amazed by the beauty of clouds from 4500 m peak. Finally we witnessed the sunrise above the clouds and it made my day.
After witnessing the stunning view for an hour and clicking pictures, we headed towards our resort again through the bumpy yet fascinating roads. After reaching the resort we got fresh and had breakfast.
After that, we checked out of our resort and rented a scooty for a day drove fast to Dubare Elephant camp where we had to cross one small lake filled with stones to see elephants, their activities, bathing and all.
After spending some time there we drove back to Madekeri and had our best lunch at Coorg Cuisine with Pandi curry and akki roti. The food was delicious and cheap.
After having lunch and some rest, we headed towards Abbey falls which was very much crowded. The waterfall was small but nice for one time visit.
After spending some time at the waterfall we drove back to one of the best places to witness sunset in Coorg, Raja's seat. It's a nature park which also has a gallery from where you can see the beautiful setting sun with the mountains all around.
After the sunset, we returned scooty and had dinner.
Around 9 pm we boarded the Volvo sleeper bus to Bangalore and bid good bye to Coorg and reached next day early morning.
So overall, it was a good 2 day trip from Bangalore at a very reasonable cost of approximate 5550 / head (including everything).
Sometimes, we need such short trips to change the mood and refresh our minds.
