I was looking for a perfect gateway near Bangalore for 2-3 days, there were so many options but I decided to explore the place where I can see blending of nature with delicious cuisines and coffee plantations.
So I landed in Scotland of India "Coorg".
Coorg is in the state of Karnataka.
Coorg is on the Western Ghats. it is also known by Kodagu the original name of Kodagu is Kodaimalenadu means 'dense forest on steep hill'. Coorg is the great Scotland of India, this town has a lot to offer to the tourist.
Set amidst verdant valleys, imposing mountains and teak wood forests, this is one of the most beautiful hill stations you can visit. It lies on Karnataka's southwestern end, covering an area of 4,102 sq km.
Mainly Coorg district consists of 3 main areas Madikeri which is the main town of Coorg situated in the most famous hill area among tourists as all sightseeing locations are near from there. Second is Kushal Nagar which is famous for the elephant camp area and last is virajpet this place is suitable for people who like peace and privacy under the lapse of nature.
My journey started in Bangalore from a satellite bus stand from there you can get a direct bus to Coorg via mysore. You can also opt for hiring a car and the nearest railway station is Mysore from there it will take 3 hours by bus and from Bangalore, it takes 6 hours.
I reached Madikeri on Saturday evening, due to the covid situation it's a weekend lockdown was there in Coorg. After reaching the hotel which was 5 km away from the main madikeri city the Coorg height resort. It's a beautiful property situated on the hillside having a birds-eye view of Madikeri valley. The best part is that prove is decent with a beautiful view and complete privacy. As I have nothing to do for the next day also, I spent my time relaxing on the balcony with a breathtaking view of the Valley. Also having the company of novels with good music and gourmet coorgi foods.
