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.
The road on the way back from the bridge was quite a sorrow story,as now we had reached the farthest part of the journey. The rest were all the checkpoints on the way back home. We had our breakfast amidst a bunch of traveller’s at UDUPI restaurant ,Karwar. The breakfast was good with a lot of people looking at us and our bikes which made us quite happy. We had a pit-stop at kumta where we ate like 5-6 oranges together and gathered vital information of deviations to be taken to reach Sagara(Town,shimoga district)While some blamed the wildlife others blamed the bad roads and asked us to take deviation at Honnavara to reach JOG and further reach Sagara. The roads from here are beautiful, Ghat roads and large trees offering dense shades.The vegetation up the western ghats changes gradually when on reaches the plateaus.Plenty of buttermilk saved our butts from getting fried. We stopped at Sagara to have lunch at a local restaurant. The food was decent enough to just satisfy our hunger and light enough to keep us going.
