  • Coorg is famous for its coffee and tea plantations
  • See the art gallery in the lavish Mysore Palace

Mysore is famous for silk, sandalwood and incence, art and of course the Palace. The erstwhile capital of the Wodeyar dynasty, Mysore is also known as the 'City Of Palaces', many of which are excellent examples of the Dravidian style of architecture. The imposing Mysore Palace is impressive and colourful: the rooms and the floor tiles are covered with colours like turquoise blue, magenta, golden yellow and leaf green. The palace has many interesting paintings adorning the walls – some done by noted painter Raja Ravi Varma. Another prominent landmark in the city is the Chamundi Hill. At the crest of this hill is Sri Chamundeshwari Temple that dates back to the 11th century.

Coorg (locally called Kodagu) is a region of scattered post-card pretty villages and towns. Madikeri, the capital of this beautiful district is a small hill resort. Coorg is also famous for coffee plantations and the brave Kodava or Coorgi people who are a martial community. Often referred to as the ‘Scotland of India’ because of its hills, picturesque towns and mist-covered slopes, Coorg is a must-visit on a trip to India.

Itinerary

Day 1

You will be picked up from your hotel in Bangalore and will travel to Mysore in an air-conditioned vehicle covering a distance of about 140 kilometres.

Enroute, you will visit the Srirangapatnam Fort, which lies 16 kilometres short of Mysore. Srirangapatnam was the capital of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan when they ruled the region in the 18th century. The Fort and palaces were destroyed when the British defeated Tipu Sultan, but the ramparts, temples and other structures still stand.

Carry on to Mysore and check in at Hotel Reegalis. Situated in the heart of the city, the hotel has comfortably furnished rooms, a multi-cuisine restaurant, coffee shop and a swimming pool.

Your package includes breakfast daily throughout your stay.

Spend the night at the hotel.

Day 2

After breakfast, accompanied by a local English-speaking guide, go on a sightseeing tour of the city. You will visit the Mysore Palace that was built in 1911-12. The main rooms of the palace are open to the public; see the carved wooden doors and mosaic floors and paintings depicting life in Mysore during Edwardian Raj. Also visit the temples within the palace, specially the Shweta Varahswamy temple whose gopuram (gateway tower) influenced the style of the Chamundeswari Temple. See the art gallery that houses paintings of noted Indian painter, Raja Ravi Varma, Japanese art and memorabilia of the royal family of Wodeyars.

Then drive up to Chamundi Hill to see the Chamundeshwari Temple which has seven-storey, 40 metre high gopuram (gateway tower). The entrance is intricately decorated in the Dravidian style and has a small statue of Hindu God Ganesha on the doorway. The doorway is silver-plated and has the images of the Goddess in different forms on it. You can see panoramic views of the city from the temple. On the way down from the temple, stop and see the famous 5 metre-high statue of Nandi bull (Hindu God Shiva’s vehicle), carved out of a single rock. It is the largest in India and a major tourist attraction.

Later drive to Coorg covering a distance of 120 kilometres. Check in at Windflower Spa & Resort, a resort nestled in the Western Ghats.

Your package includes breakfast daily throughout your stay here.

Day 3

Spend the day at leisure in Coorg. You may visit the coffee plantations and local markets. You may also visit the Madikeri Fort which is situated in the middle of Madikeri. This fort was built in the 19th century and houses a museum, a prison, a chapel and a temple.

Spend the night at the resort.
