Coorg aka Kodagu is a district of Karnataka and you can reach here either from Bangalore or Mysore. We took a KSRTC bus from Mysore which took around 3 hours to arrive Madikeri.

When in Coorg, always opt for a home-stay so you can truly experience the cultural aspect and also the locals will definitely guide you better than Google!

You can explore Coorg at its best from October to March although the weather is fine all throughout the year.

Coming to transportation, We hired a scooty because there's nothing better than experiencing the fresh air and scent of coffee which becomes a bit difficult otherwise.

We hired our scooty from Drive Coorg Tours and Travels since they are flexible with timings.
