Day 1

1. Getting down at the Mangalore Airport. One of the airports with a view, being situated on a hilltop.

3. Reaching Madekeri. Roughly 4 hours journey from Mangalore to Madekeri in State Transport bus.
That's me at Raja's Seat which looks on to the western ghat mountains.

4. Moving towards my stay for 4 days, Zostel Coorg which is another 20 kms south of Madekeri. My heart is still there.

7. Abbey Falls and Chellavery Falls
I didn't visit them, because it takes an hour to actually reach the base of falls to take a bath under the chilly waters. Plus it is always over-crowded.

This is a very short gist of my first ever solo travel.
I am still in memories of COORG like it happened yesterday.
