St. Mary's Island
This is located a few kilometers away from Udupi and on the north of Mangalore. This is a group of a few smaller islands in the Arabian Sea, off the Malpe Coast in Udupi. It is known that when Vasco Da Gama landed here from Portugal, he kept the name of this island as El padron de Santa Maria. This island is nothing but mere projection of rocks with a few palm trees on them. The only attraction here are the natural basaltic formations which have formed vertical hexagonal blocks of sediments on their own. The only way to reach this island is by boats which ply regularly from the Malpe coast.

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.
