We Landed at Bangalore airport with a brisk of early morning sun at 7.30am. We had planned for a roadtrip, so to avoid any last minute hassle we pre-booked a car from GozoCabs (Bangalore airport- Bangalore airport).
On Day 1-2 :
After having a light healthy breakfast from a restaurant near Bangalore airport, we started our journey towards our first destination- COORG.
It is a 5-6 hours journey. On the way to our Coorg stay (Airbnb), we visited the prestigious Namdroling Monastery Golden Temple. It is the largest teaching center of Tibetan Buddhism the Nyingma lineage of in the world.
Since this was our last day at Coorg, we decided to explore it as much as we could. So we started with Abbey Falls. After enjoying the beauty of Abbey falls we went for Mandalpatti trek.
On day 3 :
We headed to Udupi. It is about a 4 hours journey. On the way to our Udupi stay (Airbnb), we visited kapu beach. Kapu beach is famous for it's lighthouse. One can climb up the lighthouse to embrace a beautiful sunset. The Lighthouse opens at 5p.m.
On day 4 :
We headed to the St Mary's Island. It is a small island where you can spend quality time and enjoy fresh coconut water.
On day 5 :
We had to leave for Gokarna. From Udupi it is about 3 hours. Before reaching our hotel at gokarna, we headed to Yana Caves.
Yana Caves is an unexplored and untouched beautiful caves amidst the forest. To reach the caves, you will have to trek. After all traveling we went back to airport from where we headed towards our home. It was a great experience overall.
