Madikeri Reviews

- 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.

  What's Great?

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

  What's not so Great?

The local transportation is not well developed. Mobile signals are not available at few places.

For Whom

Ideal for both agriculturists and fearless trekkers. Also suitable for people looking for a weekend getaway from nearby places like Belgaum, Bengaluru, Mysuru etc.
