Another thing is, as I would be in a TN registered vehicle, although I would not be entering Bangalore (would take the Link/Nice road), would there still be a problem in moving in Karnataka?

What Road Atlas should I buy? Which would also be useful for my future trips?
Buy the Eicher Road Atlas 2007 one... it is good...

if u return via NH4, some food joints worth a visit:
1) Kamat Upachar - just before Kolar (on your left)
2) Woody's - just after Kolar bypass (on your right)
3) A1 Plaza - 10km after Palamner (on your right)

If in Madikeri, dont miss food in Hotel East End (it is very near to Raja's Seat)...

How about the Maps of India - CD ??

Maps Cd, India Maps Cd Download, Maps Cd Rom, Maps Image Cd Download, India Atlas on CD-ROM, India Maps on CD-ROM, Maps Of India Cd

I am getting it on discount at my office today, MRP is Rs 995/-. Getting 10% off on it. Is it a good buy? I do have a laptop.

Also, whats the cost of the Eicher Road Atlas 2007 ?

Thanks
Saurabh

Absolutely no problem. To be on the safe side, keep the fuel receipt for diesel filled in Chennai - that serves as proof of the vehicle being in TN till / on that date

Also, preserve the toll plaza receipts carefully.

The Eicher India road atlas costs around INR 320

Why spend more...Eicher costs Rs 370 MRP....buy and enjoy...
Frankly speaking CDs are not always effective....you requrie a book which u can carry in ur travel and refer to it immediately when reqd to...

Dont think twice, if u dont have a Road Atlas, just buy Eicher -2007, dont buy the 2006 one as it had some mistakes which they have updated in 2007 version...

Good Choice

Also dont forget to carry 2-3 umbrellas with you... It rains without notice in Coorg... Actually it is better to keep umbrella in your long drives....

Have fun on the trip.. I drove to Coorg couple of months back . I went to Mysore and then towards Nisargadama.The river cauvery flows through this place. In Kushal nagar , there is a tibetian settlement, which is a good place to go. However the roads in this direction were pretty bad.

Since this is a long weekend, am assuming you have your accomodation arranged. We went there on a long weekend too with no plans at all and had a tough time getting place to stay.

Also, to save as much as you can, suggest you refill at Hosur before entering Bangalore, ( if you are taking the Vellore - Krishnagiri route ) as fuel is 1-2 Rs more in Karnataka than TN.

Enjoy Maadi

i had been to coorg twice in the last one month, once en route to a home stay in siddapur, another time on my way to kasargod... weather is getting a little hostile now, not as cool as it could be, quite humid too...
In case you havent got any accomodation arranged, there are lot of home stays that are available...
