Oh man, I am excited. We are driving to South Coorg, to a place called Kutta, which is very near by Nagarahole, Irpu falls and Waynad. I spent around 3-4 hrs today on Google maps to identify the entire roads starting from Bangalore to Kutta. It will be total of around 6 hrs journey. Around 240 KM. Out of which around 50 KM will be inside Nagarahole Forest. Wow! I am excited.
This is not actually a very good season to go to that place, we are taking little risk. We want to enjoy rains as well.
The Plan: Thimmi and I will be leaving home very early in the morning on this Friday at around 4:30 - 5 AM. I will be driving the entire stretch. Plan is to reach Nagarahole forest area as early as possible. I think it will be around 8:30 AM. This will make the drive more excited. Rest of the plan to visit different places will be made then and there. Plan is to come back Sunday night, if get crazy, will be taking Monday also off. Just want to get lost man..
The Route: The route will be Bangalore - Mysore - Mysore Ring road towards West and reach Hunsur SH 88 - HD Kote road - Nagara Hole forest - Gonikoppa Road - Kutta. We have already booked accommodation at Chilligere Resort, which is just few KM away from Irpu falls.
The Places: Nagarahole, Waynad, Irpu Falls, Kuruva Island, Kushala Nagar, Abbey Falls, Lakshmana Thirtha, Madikeri etc
Preparation: Driving map is ready, Accommodation is ready, packing in progress,
It was a lovely Sunday morning we decide to go to Lumbini Garden at Nagawara. I had never been there but heard of good things about it. Thimmi and I started at around 11 AM and reached there by 12 noon. You can see route at attached map.
Coming from Mekhri circle towards Hebbal flyover take diversion towards east in the outer ring road. From there it is around 3-4 KM and you get in your left side.
Entrance fee: 30 per person and 30 per camera Very nice place for kids, boating (general and peddle). They also have some water games. Not so great, but nice for weekend get away. Lots of games for kids.
You get all kinds of food there. Boating was very nice. Worth a visit..
