Weekend Getaways from Kundapura  

Best time to visit - January,September,October,November,December
About 100kms west of Mysore, the hilly hamlet of Kodagu (formerly known as Coorg) is located in the evergreen highlands of the Western Ghats. This charming district beckons tourists with its spice gardens, cardamom forests and a sea of coffee plantations. Travel to Coorg for the wide array of adventure activities. Raft through the white rapids of the Barapole river, trek across the grasslands of the Kopatty-Kalugundi trail or quad biking through the Chevalara falls. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, fishing at the Valnoor and Bheemeshwari fishing camps or simply wandering through coffee plantations are some of the most sought after things to do in Coorg. The 17th century Madikeri Fort where the revered Tipu Sultan once held court, and the Omkareshwar temple are among the most famous attractions of the district’s headquarters in Madikeri. While you are here, also visit Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, the largest Tibetan settlement of south India. Go here for a pleasant evening intermittent with monastic hymns, prayer bells and a motley of Tibetan handicrafts.

About Kundapura

We started late on Thursday morning. For those who know the route from Mangalore, it is almost a straight shot from Mangalore once you take the National Highway 66. We were an hour into the drive that we saw the name ‘Soans Island’ plastered along a few signposts (near Kundapura). Curious, we asked around, fiddled around with our GPS, lost our way a few times, and yet reached there eventually.Unbelievably, it was literally an island resort. We parked outside, along the river and sat in a boat, (Yes, a boat!) with our bags which took us to our destination. Our destination was a house built with a couple of rooms. And the rooms opened into the river.
