My Trip to Bengaluru and Coorg (Karnataka, India)

On 30th December we travelled to Bengaluru for holidays. It took almost two and a half hour to reach Bengaluru from Delhi and luckily no fog delays this time. Last year when we were travelling to Mumbai/Goa, our flight was delayed by about six hours.

From the airport we took a taxi to one of my father's friend's house. As it was already evening, we did not do much that day and had evening snacks, dinner and took rest. My father had great time meeting his old pal.

Next day we went to a meeting another family friend. At their home I played PS3 with their son Vibhu who was of my age. Then from there we all together went to Science Museum. The science museum was very big. It had lot's of scientific stuff which we enjoyed.

Then we went back to the place where we were staying. In the society there was a new year party.


After the party we went back home as the next day we had to go to Coorg, a town near Bengaluru.

The next day we got up early and took a tempo traveller to Coorg. On the way we took another family of my father's friend. Then on the whole way to Coorg I was reading a book. We took breaks to have our breakfast and lunch. I had Idli, Dosa and Sambhar. That was enough. Authentic south Indian food was very delicious.

Then on the way to Coorg, we visited 'Golden Temple'. Golden Temple just before Coorg is a Buddhist Temple and there is a small community of Tibetans in that area. After visiting the temple, we continued our journey to Madikeri, which is district headquarters of Coorg.

We had booked a homestay atop a hill surrounded by Coffee plantation. The house was very big and there were two sevants who were cleaning and cooking. The house had a place where we could do a bonfire. There were two swings also. The view from the homestay was terrific.

The next day we woke up, had breakfast and went to Talakaveri, the starting point of the river Kaveri. It was a beautiful place. Then from there we went to Abby Waterfall. To reach the waterfall we had do a long hike. After we reached on the top where the waterfall was located, we captured many pics with the fall. The waterfall was very huge.

Then from there we went to Madikeri town, As the place is famous for it's spices we bought lots of them. In the same area from where we did shopping there was a good restaurant, where we had our dinner. The food was delicious especially the chicken. As it was getting late, we decided to go back to our homestay.

The next day we had to go back to Bengaluru so we left the homestay and went towards Bengaluru. On the way we stopped in Mysore to visit the Mysore Palace. The place was huge and pretty crowded. The palace was built by Maharaja Rajashri.

 Then we started our journey once again and now straight to Bengaluru. On the way I was playing games with other kids and reading books. Now when we reached Bengaluru we went to other friend's home of my father. As it was night time we went to sleep.

The next day we first went to Bannergatha National Park. It was a huge place. First we went to do a safari. The safari was divided into many parts such as lion safari, tiger safari, white tiger safari etc. The safari was awesome. We could see all the animals walking freely here and there. These are some of the pics of the safari.

Then we went to Banergatta Zoo. The zoo was big and had many animals.

Then from there we went to meet my friend, Pruthvi, who along with his family had travelled with us earlier to Rishikesh. There we had our lunch and played at his home. In the evening, we went to Meenakshi Mall for short time and came back home for dinner and rest.

The next day we woke up early as we were going to Wonderla ! a huge amusement park and water park. We went to the amusement park and did lot's of rides which was fun.

The next day we went to the airport as we had our flight back to Delhi. The trip had ended but I would not forget the rides I did in Wonderla !
