A major agricultural and tourist hub in Karnataka. Perfect for weekend getaway.

Madikeri is truly nature's blessing. Lush greenery with the jaw-dropping picturesque view is a beautiful wonder within itself. The calm and soothing scenery will make you fall in love with Madikeri. If you are one among the person who just wants to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, this place must be on top of your bucket list. However, it is better to avoid visiting this place during rainy season for some obvious reasons.

- If you are visiting Coorg in wet weather seasons, beware of leeches especially while walking through wet grass and in bathrooms/toilets.
- Watch out for traffic (locals warn about overloaded lorries"") along the main highways leading into Madikeri and the winding roads of the region. Speedbreakers on some roads tend to be unmarked. Wild animals are reported on some roads at night and domesticated herds by day too.
- Along with Kannada, English and Hindi are also spoken in Coorg so language should not be a problem here.
