Then after i had my breakfast over there

Pro Tip : Never take hotels beside Coorg bus stand they will charge you more When you just go away from Bus stand you can see hotels in small houses Go to that hotels you will get good food and for reasonable price

Day 1:

As usual it was Saturday where i was struggling to spend last half hour So that i can hop on to bus to my Journey to NIRVANA

Finally after long wait at 9:30 i hopped on bus with "Doore Doore" song from movie Neelakasam pacha kadhal chuvana bhumi feeling i am KAASI My whole body is excited.

Skip the Journey i landed in Coorg at 6:00

The moment i step my foot my entire body just shivered and i am not able to see a thing over there due to the dense Fog

Then i made my way towards Bus Stand to use Public restroom just to refresh and change my clothes

My plan was to take a bike for rent and roam coorg but for my Bad luck being a On season beat no bikes are available. So i thought of Roaming Sunday on Buses and next day on bike cause bikes are available on Monday

So i thought i will go to Abbi Falls i went to Autostand and waiting for some one to go to Abbi falls so that my fare will be shared since i am only one person After 20 Min

Two people came and they asked Autowala to take them to Abbi Falls so i convinced them that i will come with them and lets split the fare They agreed and i hopped on

From Bus station to Abbi Falls it was 300 Rs for three of us Both up & down

Then i made my way towards MADIKERI FORT

Since i am not having a bike i thought of i will cover far places for today and i will keep the nearest places for next day So i though of going to TALAKAVERIYou will get direct buses to Bhagamandala which was 8 Kms from talacauvery From Bhagamandala you have to hire a Auto which i did just like Abbi Falls waited at stand until two people came and convinced them and i have shared the fare with unknown

Talacauvery was just heaven on earth It was one of the beautiful places i have seen on earth since it was heavy Fog and Drizzling trek to the nearest peak has been cancelled

Here comes most terrifying part of the Trip where i have booked a hostel which was 8 kms from Madikeri Bus Stop It was a Hostel in middle of woods where i have to go all the way on Ghati road where they was no light in eyesight and a Most terrifying thing happen on my way but that was fight for another day My friend i will write it afterwards

Then finally i reached my hostel and here comes the most fun part of trip i have met some Solo Travellers like me and went on roaming the entire night on roads of Madikeri with songs running on my ears thanks to this amazing article

Then after 3 hrs started to my next place that is Dubare Elephant camp

Important thing : Dubare Elephant camp is open b/w morning 9:00 to 11:00 clock and eve 4:30 - 5:30 PM

Due to my lack of research i missed my spot on dubare camp but what i enjoyed more is the travel from Madikeri to Kushal nagar on bike with a Freezing weather with drizzling and Yuhi Chala song in my ears

Then after that i went to Namdroling Monastery The architecture was mind blowing and while walking in the Monastery it just felt like i was walking in Jackie Chan Movie sets
