A bit uncomfortable after reaching Bangalore. Many people boarded from this station so it became congested. It is the only drawback of my visit to Coorg became unpleasant. One of our co-passenger drunk which made us uncomfortable. Otherwise,Coorg experince was always a nostalgic one. Best season to visit is June.

Good, comfortable and the food on Bangalore Chennai sector was good whereas the food on Chennai Mysore sector was horrible. The Catering team were very humble and served us with a smile. Except the toilets the train was clean and comfortable. The quality of food was bad especially the lunch. They gave us veg rice, absolutely no taste and was not cooked properly and the curd rice was very watery and tasteless with just 2 spoons of rice in the packet. Dinner was ok.

This train is the apt on if you are travelling to Coorg, Via Mysore. We travelled in a AC 3 Tier and the experience was good. Reached Mysore and took a cab through taxi for sure and used them for the next three days while I was staying in Coorg. We had booked a the same train when we returned back to Chennai and the travel was smooth and comfortable.

"Good roads but with lots speed breakers"

My visit from Chennai to Mysore was by train and from to there to Croog in a car. The roads are good but lots of speed breakers need to be careful while driving. Full of greenery, self drive to Croog is the best option as you can enjoy the beautiful nature. This place is very close to Kushal Nagar BUs Top.

"Train travel to Coorg"

Posted 16 Mar

Travelled by: Train

Coorg, located in the state of Karnataka is one of the best hill stations in South India. We took a train from Chennai (Shatabdi at morning 6 am) and reached Bangalore by noon. From Bangalore we hired a taxi which took us to Coorg. It is a good place to visit. We stayed in Heritage Resort, one of the finest resort in Coorg. The resort is located on top of a hill and it is well-maintained. We had a nice stay in the resort and the food provided was excellent. We stayed there for 3 days and visited a places like Dubara Forest, Thala cauvery. It is better to avoid this spot during peak summer as the temperature is very high and the places are dry. Ideal time would be from September to Feb.
