Coorg Road Trip - The Real taste of Moments
We travel across various paths to encounter staggering emotions that hit our head. Whenever I feel low in my life the only option embraces me is to explore new places. Earth gave us an abundant quest to regenerate ourselves. This time I wanted to a take a leaf from my inner sight about a familiar crush for all mad travelers across the globe including me i.e.Coorg the Scotland of India,popularly known as Madikeri.
This is our Coorg Travelogue: Bangalore to Coorg Road trip
Being a traveler exploring new places and enjoying the local recipes is not only matters but also the travel does. My Exploration started with my bestie from Bangalore to Coorg via Mysore which is of 300 km away on my white beast KTM 200cc. Bangalore to Coorg route has quite less traffic during early hours in the morning. So, we started at 3AM in the morning from Bangalore. After a long ride of 3hrs, We are almost dried up!!. Sometimes, it only needs a push to awaken your energy remain infectious. It was the aroma of wild coffee beans gave me an adrenaline rush throughout indicating that we are near to our destination.
Much love from the Road ❤️
Smiles flashed across our faces as we saw large estates of coffee plantations everywhere within reach of eyesight. I could see a few groups of people dressed in head wraps, long boots and with a bin on their backs. Their attire speaks volumes about their passion for the profession. Being enthusiastic we dressed up like them. Being a part of someone’s profession is a way of complimenting them, we made the same gesture that made our day.
Classic Coorg coffee is one of the most exported coffee brands in India known for its heartthrob aroma. I cannot forget about the way we became childish to have a sip of great coffee that land offers us, it’s a perfect start. Not even 12 years old wine could give a feel that the coffee gave us. With that enthusiasm we hit the ground. I am literally on cloud nine watching land filled with greenery everywhere.
Two things can never change in this world: One is the pleasure of watching a girl with a beautiful smile over her face the other is catching a glimpse of fog filled mountains.
It is an immense ornament of mother earth who gave us the best with a splendid display of blue sky and the cool breeze spreading our souls. Having an early morning ride with your bestie is the best thing one could ask for.
We’re welcomed with beauty of Cauvery River taking leaps and bounds into the valley. I loved the way fog has spread across the mountains. This is the best ride we had ever. We rode nearly 45 km and reached Madikeri. The natural splendor gave us a feeling that we were not in Madikeri. I think this is the reason why it is known as Scotland of India, it’s a true paradise on the earth.
