A Visit To Coorg In The Western Ghats!

Being a travel enthusiast, I decided to visit South India during my vacations. Going through a wide range of options available on various travel websites, I narrowed it down to Coorg, one of the famous hill stations in Karnataka located at 3500 ft above the sea. According to the internet, thousands of people visit this place located in the mid of Western Ghats.

For commutation, flight was my priority. But sadly being the peak time, none of the portals gave me good prices on Coorg hotels flight booking and the flight prices did not match my budget and I decided to travel by train. Looking for trains to Coorg, I did not get a confirmed reservation. The last option left was to reach the destination through indirect travel.

I decided to take a train to Hassan, 100 km away from Coorg and finally take a cab there. Browsing through the Indian Railways Site, I booked my ticket on Swarna Jayanthi Express, which takes three days to reach Coorg. I booked a hotel too, which was not a very tedious task as there were more than 200 Coorg Hotels to choose from.

Finally, all set for my journey, I reached the H.Nizammudin Railway Station in Delhi and boarded the train. At around 5.50 a.m. the train departed and I began my 3-day long train journey to Hassan.  The train was a bit cosy but clean and luckily I met a companion also travelling to Coorg. He had visited the hill station before so I questioned him about the place out of curiosity. During the travel, I noticed the stations through which we were travelling such as the Agra Cantt, Gwalior and Bhopal.

The journey I had thought to be hectic, instead became all the more fun as I got to know more people and the distance was covered in no time. Finally after reaching Hassan, I shared the taxi with my new companion and we reached Coorg in about 2 hours.

I must say, this was one of the best hill stations that I got to visit and the trip proved to be fun and warm experience to meet people.
