Day 1: Bangalore to Madikeri with Tour My Himalaya
Begin your journey as you meet our representative in the morning. We’ll drive to the picturesque hill station of Madikeri, the district headquarters of Coorg (Kodagu). Once known as Muddurajakeri and later renamed Madikeri, this charming town is nestled in the Western Ghats at an altitude of 1061 meters. Its mild climate and scenic beauty have earned it the nickname “Scotland of India.”
Upon arrival, check in at the hill resort and enjoy the evening at your leisure, soaking in the natural beauty of the area. Madikeri is often compared to Mini Kashmir due to its scenic spots.
Day 2: Madikeri with Tour My Himalaya
On this day, embark on a half-day excursion around Madikeri, visiting key attractions such as the Madikeri Palace or Fort, Omkareshwar Temple, Raja’s Seat, and Abbi Falls, all located in close proximity.
First, explore Raja’s Seat, a captivating spot just 1.5 km from Madikeri, once a preferred recreational destination for the Rajas. It offers commanding views of cliffs and valleys to the west, making it an ideal location to witness breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
Next, journey to Abbi Falls, approximately 8 km from Madikeri, nestled amidst coffee plantations, spice estates, and lush trees. Here, multiple streams converge and cascade 70 feet down to join the Kaveri River, creating a stunning natural spectacle. While the falls’ beauty is mesmerizing, swimming in its cool waters can be risky.
Before returning, visit the Omkareshwar Temple, located just 1 km from Madikeri’s heart. Built in 1820 by Linga Rajendra, the temple boasts a unique architectural blend of Islamic and Gothic styles. Legend has it that the temple’s Shiva Lingam was brought from Varanasi.
Explore the Madikeri Palace or Fort, now housing the Deputy Commissioner’s offices of Coorg and a state archaeology department museum. Inside the fort, you’ll find a wealth of Coorg’s historical artifacts, including two life-size elephant sculptures made of mortar. Don’t miss the Mahatma Gandhi Public Library, Kote Maha Ganapathi temple, and the district prison, all situated within the fort’s confines.
Return to the resort for lunch and spend the rest of the day amidst nature’s tranquility.
