Hi Shah,

Mangalore is the apt place from where you can start for coorg as you are from Mumbai. There is plenty of public transportation from Mumbai to Mangalore compared to Mumbai to Mysore( you will have to come to Bangalore to reach Mysore!).

From Mangalore there are frequent buses to Coorg which are one of the best.As karnataka road transport provides the most luxurious buses in all of India, comfort is an easy availability. You may even take package tours to Coorg from Mangalore which I feel is the safest and hasslefree for some one from outside.
Coorg is a beautiful place with plenty of things to see.
I will give you the list.
1. Dubaare elephant camp.
2. Haarangi Dam.
3. Raja seat park.
4. Tala kaveri- birth place of river Kaveri.
5.Abbi falls
6. Kushal nagar tibetian camp( temple and monk society).

Apart from these the scenic beauties are a wonder to the eyes , I mean the coffee plantations, mountains, streams etc.
You will find excellent hotels in the city and food is not a problem at all as you find all types of cuisines other than local food types.

Write back for any other information.

Apart from these

Hi Shah,

My Take is Mumbai to Mangalore just to Visualize the Scenery over Konkan Railways compared to Mumbai to Bangalore /Mysore !

From Both Mangalore and Mysore, Coorg [ If you mean Madikeri] is Almost equidistant.

There are numerous buses which goes between Mysore and Mangalore which need to pass through Madikeri. You may book online using and can travel with ease.

5 Days is bit too much for Coorg and if you did not till now visited Mysore, you may include Mysore too and can break as 3 days for Coorg and 2 Days for Mysore.

OR even you may swap Wayanad for Mysore for those 2 days as Wayanad District of Kerala and Coorg District of Karnataka borders each other.

Also it depends on your group composition.

Please specify your interests , group composition [if very young or very old is part of the group ]and the number of days you intend for Coorg and I will share the related information !

Hope this is helpful
