Hi Zahed,
I'll be there in Coorg next week and would like to visit your homestay once. I know you are having full booking now, but want to see your place, so that next time when I go with my full gang and advanced planning, we can stay at your place. It looks exciting.
I have picked up your mobile nos from your site. Will get in touch with you after reaching there. Or I may ping you even on my way to Coorg if I get lost somewhere.
Do you feel I can get a hotel in Mysore this weekend? Considering that it is the Dussera weekend. In that case we can just halt at Mysore for a day and show the Mysore palace in its full glory to my son.

May be the below itinerary also works. I made the same in April this year and it was very convenient.
  • Start at around 4 PM from Hyderabad. Excellent roads till Kurnool.
  • Have dinner in Kurnool and proceed.
  • You may face few KMs of normal road after that better roads till AP boarder and from there four lane / excellent two lane roads till coorg.
  • I reached Mysore by 5 AM in the morning. You can do the same.
  • Stay in Mysore for a day and do sight seeing. If you have energy you can proceed to Dubare elephant camp and can also stay there and proceed to Coorg.

This is just my two cents.

Thanks,
Raghu Lakshman

While proceeding from Dubare to Madikeri, go via Chethalli, so you avoid the bad patch between Kushalnagar and Madikeri.

hey Max, your more than welcome to visit our place. good that you got hold of my number. Give me a call if you need help on anything in Coorg. regarding staying in Mysore, iam not sure. I guess you would need to check once you reach there to find out if you can get a room to stay.

I'm planning a 5-day trip from Hyderabad to Coorg (Madikeri), with stopovers in Mysore(optional) and Nagarhole forest starting on Thursday morning and coming back to Hyderabad on Monday evening.

What would be a good route along with recommended stopovers/night halts?

Start early morning from Hyderabad to cross Bangalore by 12 Noon and Mysore by 3PM. You can drive upto Hunsur and take a turnoff from there. Accommodation in Nagarhole is going to be expensive. Check out for home stays. Else you can also stay in Virajpet which has a Club Mahindra property.
Route ( I have bypassed Mysore town and the Krishna Raja Sagar Dam is on this road. )
Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India to Nagarhole National Park - Google Maps

Also you can check hotels here Nagarhole Hotels | Book Cheap Hotels in Nagarhole at Budget Rates-HolidayIQ

What MC says is perfect. Only thing to add is that, its now better to go all the way till Mysore and use the Outer Ring Road to hit Hunsur road and continue rather than take the Ranganthittu access. Its much faster that way.

The ORR, signal is place where you will see Columbia Asia hospital.

Cloud Valley - Welcome to Cloud Valley Speak to Hem Madappa, Nice gentleman!

Hyderabad - Bangalore - Mysore timings are slightly optimistic. Add 1 more hour.

Hi

We went to Coorg in February for our Anniversay. It was a good choice and we stayed at the Club Mahindra Resort at Madikeri.

A few things I wish to point out:

1) Road throughout is brilliant except for the last 12~15 kms reaching Madikeri which are pot-hole ridden and bad. May be better now since work was going on.

2) Hyderabad to Bangalore is absolutely superb. Its one of my favourites for a weekend break.

3) Bangalore traffic is really irritating and I wish some Bangalore BHPian can advise you on how to avoid the ORR and get to the Mysore Road directly. Highly recommend getting advise as the traffic will set you back at least a couple of hours.

4) Bangalore to Madikeri - The road is excellent again but, there are quite a few towns on this road. Although the road is completely 4 laned, the speed breakers are a pain. Mind you there are about 75 (+ or - 1) between the Bangalore ORR junction to Madikeri. I counted them.

That's my 2 pence.

Hope you have a lovely time.

Here is the thread I had created for Bangalore-bypass.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ngalore-2.html (On Bypassing Bangalore)

Posts 27 and 28 should guide you through NH7 to Mysore road and vice versa,

The other thing I noticed is that you plan to see Mysore in the evening (Palace) and drive to Nagarhole. I hope you time it right, else finding places in Coorg esp. far flung homestays can be very difficult in the dark.

I traveled to Madikere from Mysore on 10th April. The road is very good till Madikere. The road from Madikere to Talacauveri is bad to very bad in a few places but drivable without much discomfort

I'm now thinking if I stay in Mysore on Thursday night, will I be able to make the morning safari in Nagarhole National Park. Or a place for one night near nagarhole is a must?

Guess the safari timings are from 6 to 8AM. It takes about 2hrs to reach Nagarahole from Mysore. You may have to leave Mysore by about 4:30AM or so.

Thank you for the timings. Is there any place recommended to stay near Nagarhole around 2-3k for a night? Orange County/Kabini is quoting around 16k per night!
