MADIKERI, Coorg - One day trip

2nd Nov 2019

It was a chilling Saturday when I saw a post on social media that gave me chills, and I decided to visit that location. I didn’t had much time to explore the place but it was not very far so I thought of giving it a try.

I booked a bus ticket for around 1100 INR from Bangalore to Madikeri. The departure was at 10:30 PM. Taking it up as a challenge of exploring such a place in one day felt very exciting.

Bonus Tip: If you are traveling from Bangalore, the bus goes via Mysore. So you can explore this place as well and plan accordingly.

I reached Madikeri around 5:30AM. Since I wanted to keep the trip under budget, I looked for a cheap hotel just for freshening up. You will find many cheap lodge around. Later I had my breakfast and left to explore the beauty of Madikeri.

Day 1

So the first location I explored was Mandalpatti Peak. Trust me it was one of the most scenic places I have visited. You can book a safari cab for around 1500 INR for a group of 5 people. Since I was alone I ended up booking an Auto Rickshaw.

I spent around 1 to 1.5 hrs there and then left for my second location.

This waterfall is on the way to Abbe Falls. I didn’t thought it would be such beautiful waterfall. Though it is a small fall still the beauty it holds is splendid.

Finally reached Abbi falls and what I saw was something I never imagined. This place was full of people. It was more like a market full of crowd. Despite, The waterfall was extremely beautiful to watch. Also for photographers, this place is heaven.

It was already evening so I thought of visiting a nearby place.

Well there was nothing much to see here but this place is great for people having interest in historical things.
