Bangalore to Coorg by road is refreshing as well as challenging experience at the same time. Refreshing, as you would get to see the sublime natural beauty of mountainous roads and at the same time it is challenging for the steep curves and narrow bends of the route. Almost 260 km long route from Bangalore to Coorg takes over fiver hours by road. As there is no direct railway service between these two places, driving would be the best way to cover the route. Starting our road travel from Bangalore, we crossed several places and finally arrived our destination i.e., Coorg. You can even take a direct bus for covering the distance from Bangalore to Coorg by road. It would take around 6 hours to reach the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation bus stand of Coorg.

No doubt, driving to Coorg is a wonderful experience, but there are certain essentials that you should seriously watch out for! The tempting Mysore roads do give you the freedom to speed up the vehicle, but a little bit of carelessness and impulsiveness can put in you in great trouble. While driving, avoid overtaking the buses & trucks, watch out for bad bumps and steep turns on the Mysore road.
