Our next adventure .. To South Coorg

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,

ಮಳೆನಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂತರಾ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿರತ್ತೆ.... ಬಂದ ಮೇಲೆ ಹೇಗಿತ್ತು ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಬರೀರಿ (including resort details)... ನಂಗೂ ಹೋಗ್ಬೇಕು ಅಂತ ಅನ್ನಿಸ್ತಾಯಿದೆ
