Anyone from Bengaluru, we think of Kodagu/Coorg at the first instinct if someone says "Let's plan for a weekend trip.."
It is obvious because Coorg is one of the most popular destination near Bengaluru known for its natural beauty & cool weather. It poses wide variety of options for all ages to trip here. Starting from water falls for playing to peaks (or hills) for trekking, temples for praying to view points for relaxing and rivers for rafting (adventure lovers).. It has everything to offer for everyone..!
I had been to Coorg earlier and its conventional to visit places like Raja seat, Abbey falls, Dubare elephant camp, Kushalnagar and Nisargadhama that are close by Madikeri taluk of Kodagu district. This time, as an unconventional trip we planned to explore the Somwarpet taluk of this district in mid of July.
Being monsoon, many suggested its not the right time to visit as it will be raining most of the time there. We being bachelors (boys alone) traveling, we didn't mind drenching in rain and visiting places and have an adventure packed in this visit. Based on that we planned to follow the below itinerary
Planned to start on Friday night from Bengaluru and cover the below
Day 1: Mallalli Falls, Mandalpatti (Mugilpete), Raja seat
Day 2: Bhagamandala, Talacauvery and Barapole river rafting
