Hello Everybody,

I recently registered in this forum after we decided to go for a trip to Coorg.The information in this forum is really authentic and very good guidance,help is been given.Mr.P.M Velu's (as I read a lot of his input for the people who had travelled to Coorg) and all the members are doing a good service.Great.
Well, coming to the trip :

1.Group of 6 people-4 adults(2 senior citizens aged 70&67) and 2 children 18 & 13 respectively.Travel dates 4th July-10th July 2011.

2.Have booked our rooms at the Madikeri Club Mahindra resort for all 5 nights starting from 5th July.Will have to come back everyday for night stay.

3.OUR TRIP ITENARY
DAY 1 TUESDAY- JULY 5TH
We leave Chennai by Mysore Kaveri express on July 4th night and reach Mysore by 8 a.m.Planning to take a cab from MYsore station to Madikeri.On the way to cover Golden temple,Cauvery Nisargadhama,Dubare Elephant Camp (and any other places if any around Kushalnagar to be convered please suggest).We would like reach Dubare camp for the Safari time. By what time will be able to reach... Madikeri resort after covering all these places? Are these places enough for the day and we retire for the day at the resort. Please advise.

DAY 2WEDNESDAY-JULY 6TH
WE WOULD LIKE TO VISIT by Cabs BHAGAMANDALA,TALA CAUVERY,BRAHMAGIRI HILLS(if steps are there to climb..my parents will not come and rest of us will be interested to go).. then..Proceed to Iruppu falls, Nagarhole NS ,Iguthappa temple and any other places dont know if left out to be seen. Then return to the resort at Madikeri.We are Interested for Nagarhole NS Safari-so within which time to reach there.
Is this plan right or will it be too hectic,less time to cover all the places.Please advice. We are flexible to change our itenary.Arranging Cab for this day.

DAY 3THURSDAY-JULY 7TH
Local sight seeing in Madikeri town... Abbey falls,Madikeri fort,Omkareshwara temple,Raja's seat,Tomb and any others if left out. Is it advisable to have a Cab for this whole day.

DAY 4FRIDAY JULY 8TH
By any chance is it possible to go Kollur Mookambika or Udupi for this one day and come back for night stay. I know it will be too hectic and long time. Just a thought. We are not particular to go if it does not fit in.
ELSE ALTERNATE IS TO SEE ANY OTHER PLACES LEFT IN AND AROUND COORG.

DAY 5 SATURDAY JULY 9TH
FULL DAY REST AT RESORT COMPLETELY ENJOYING THE RESORT FACILITIES

DAY 6 SUNDAY MORNING JULY 10TH
GET BACK TO MYSORE BY KSRTC BUS AND PROCEED TO CHENNAI BY MYSORE SHATABDI, NOON TRAIN.

4.We have asked a quote from the resort for non AC-CAB (Tavera).They are charging us a flat rate of Rs14,000 for all these 6 days...(Mysore-Coorg-Mysore-From 05th - 10th July 2011)(Cab at disposal rates)for 1,500km coverage. After which each Km is charged at Rs8 per km. Is this a reasonable charge or any suggestions as to engage an outside cab on a day to day release basis.Please suggest. Will all these places mileage be within 1500KM.. (DAY 4 not counted)
For Day 1 after reaching Mysore station for sure we need a CAB to reach Madikeri covering all the places.

5.Food part we will have breakfast alone at the resort and the rest of the day will be outside as and when we see good hotels.
But for last day fully at the resort.Is this fine.Please advice.
6.Last but least how would the climate be? accordingly clothes,accessories to be taken.
NO PLANS TO VISIT MYSORE AS WE HAVE ALL SEEN.
Your inputs,advice is greatly expected and appreciated please.
Regards
Meenakshi Pushpala

Half a day is sufficient to visit these places. The temple is closed between 12 and 4 o'clock in the afternoon.

Your day-1 itinerary we did as as a day trip from Madikeri. We booked the car through a small travel agency. I guess he would have told us if there was more to do in that region.

I don't recall anything about safari's in Dubare, but we were not interested it it. We arrived there at 10 o'clock in the morning. By that time the other activities were an ongoing process. Feed an elephant, bath one and then the next animal showed up.

At Cauvery Nisargadhama it was possible to ride on an elephant but again we did not do that.

Hi meenakshi,

Ironically i am staying in the same resort from the 2nd to 4th of July .

I am also looking for options in coorg.

Meanwhile, while taking this vacation from Mahindra, I also took an option to visit ooty for 2 days . ( I am visiting ooty first )

I am still to find a good option for traveling across coorg and ooty.

so, i am gonna steal away some information which we get here ..
