Coorg- officially known as Kodagu is a fascinating
hill station of Karnataka. With its breadth taking landscapes, lush greenery,
spice and coffee plantation, the place is like a haven to all nature lovers. Nowadays, it is also a popular tourist destination
due to its culture and people. Here is a short 3 nights and 4 days tour plan
of this stunning hill station. Let’s start. How to Reach
In order to visit Coorg, we first reach Bengaluru Satellite Bus station. From there we took KSRTC operated bus to reach
Madikeri. The trip was of 7-8 hours approximately and
the fare was Rs550 per person. The road to Madikeri from Satellite bus station
moved through fresh green mountains and the journey was quite refreshing. Day-1
On day-1, we hired an auto rickshaw for a whole day tour. The auto rickshaw charged around Rs 600 for
this day-long tour. We first went to Abbey Falls. Abbey falls is 10Km away from Madikeri town
and is the prime tourist location of the region. We parked our auto outside the falls area,
purchased tickets worth Rs10 per head and from there went down to the falls area on
foot. A little walk through a well maintained path
took us to the main falls area. If you visit this place just after monsoon,
like us, then you will be able to see the gushing waterfall coming down the rocks. We also enjoyed the lush green surroundings
of the falls. From there we moved towards Madikeri fort. Madikeri fort was founded by Mudduraja during
17th century. Later Tipu Sultan reconstructed it in granite. At the entrance of the fort we saw two life-size
granite elephants. There is a church, a Museum and a palace inside
the fort. Museum displays various artefacts and weaponry
used during the time of Mudduraja and Tipu Sultan. Photography is prohibited inside the museum
and so we can’t show the video of the museum artefacts. At present, Madikeri Deputy Commissioner’s
office is located inside the fort. From there we visited Omkareshwar Temple. Omkareshwar Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. This temple was built in 19th century by King
Lingarajendra II. Here you can see a perfect blend of gothic
and Islamic architecture which is worth visiting. Currently it is one of the most visited tourist
places in Coorg. Next we visited famous Raja Seat Park. Entry fee here is Rs20 per head. Situated In Madikeri district, Raja Seat Park
is a beautiful garden. The park was surrounded by a well-maintained
pathway. We walked through this path for quite some
times and enjoyed the beautiful flowers which bloom beside this path. There were also a big stone structure of an
elephant and a snake. From the top view point area of the path we
got a clear view of whole valley below. Needless to say it was absolutely breadth
taking. Our last destination for the day was Raja’s
Tomb in Madikeri. While moving towards Raja’s tomb, we stopped
at a point on top of the hill. The view of the clouds floating over the surrounding
mountains were mesmerizing. The tombs of Raja’s is located on the edge
of the hilltop of Madikeri town. Entry fee here is Rs10 per head. The complex is surrounded by a well-manicured
garden. At the centre of the garden, there were three
main tombs. The central tomb was of King Doddaveerarajendra
and his queen. The right side tomb is of King Lingarajendra
and the left side tomb is of Royal priest Rudrappa. At this point we end our day 1 tour. Day-2
On day-2 morning, we hired a car for Rs 2500 for this day trip. Our 1st destination was Dubare elephant camp. If you are in Coorg, then you must visit this
place for unique experiences. We parked our car outside the park. The parking fee here was Rs20. At the entrance we purchased tickets for Rs50
per head and took a ferry ride through Cauvery River to reach the main camp area. The camp is located inside a lush green forest. After entering through the main entrance,
the first thing we observed was a person is scrubbing and bathing an elephant. Moving inside, we walk through the field and
observed the big elephants having their food and trolling around. They were enjoying their natural inhabitant. There were forest guards present inside the
park and they explained the life and habits of elephants. At the end of our elephant camp trip we enjoyed
a wild life photography exhibition which displays the local flora and fauna. Our next destination was Nisargadhama Forest
Park. We parked our car outside the main entrance
and purchased entry tickets from here. Entry fee here was Rs 10 per head and parking
charge was Rs20. This is actually a forest on an island of
Cauvery River. After entering through the main entrance we
passed through a hanging bridge over Cauvery River. The surrounding forest looked stunning from
the middle of the bridge. At one end of the bridge there was the entrance
for boating. We didn’t experience boating here due to
time constraints but if time permits then surely do this while you are in Nisargadhama
Park. We walked through this clean forest and next
visited the park. Here we observed some stone structures displaying
the lives and festivals of local community. Moreover, at this point you may enjoy Zip
line trek and other adventure activities. Next we visited the deer park and observed
lots of deer there. Ou last destination for the day was Golden
Temple or Namdroling Monastery. The majestic monastery compound was surrounded
by a well maintained garden. Inside the monastery we observed 40 feet tall
statue of Guru Padmasambhaba, Buddha Sakyamuni and Amitayus. On the inside walls there were beautiful paintings
showing stories from Buddhist mythology. In front the garden there were some souvenir
shops selling Tibetan handicrafts. Day-3
On day-3 morning we took our car for a whole day tour. On this day the charge was Rs 3500. We first went to Talacauvery. We parked our car outside the complex and
climbed up the stairs to reach the main premises. Talacauvery is the source of River Cauvery. It is located 1276 meters above the sea level. Before climbing the stairs we had to open
our shoes because shoes were not allowed inside the temple. From the top of the temple we got a bird’s
eye view of the hills of Coorg and that was quite refreshing. From Talacauvery we went to a shop selling
famous Coorg spices. We purchased some good quality spices from
here. We next went to Bhagamandala Temple. This pilgrimage site is located at the foothill
of Talacauvery. It is popularly known as Triveni Sangam as
it is the sacred confluence of three rivers Cauvery, Kannike and Sujyoti. From Bhagamandalam we went to Brahmagiri Wildlife
sanctuary and Iruppu Falls. Entry fee here is Rs 50 per head. We went 0.75 km through Brahmagiri Wildlife
sanctuary which is famous for its wildlife. The place is a King Cobra den and you can
easily see birds like black bulbul, emerald dove here. To reach the waterfalls we climbed down some
steps and finally reached the waterfalls area. Bathing facility is available from October
to March. The lush green surroundings of the waterfalls
region needs a special mention. Since we visited Coorg during Dussera, while
returning to our hotel we saw the colourful Dussera procession of Coorg. There were some puppet shows displaying the
battle of Goddess Durga with other demons like Mahishasura. We enjoyed it a lot. For total package cost please check the description
