Coorg is a beautiful destination towards south of Karnataka. This place is accessible from Kannur airport, Calicut airport and is an ideal destination for those who land at Kannur, Calicut to explore and to enjoy with family.

Bit of flash back: Coorg is even near to Mysore and as I did my engineering from Mandya, Mysore Coorg was a destination we explored during those time, travelling in two wheeler, in the mid night a time when mobile phones was not available nor ATMs to get cash during the way. I did go this place twice in bike from Mandya with friends, the nostalgia of those trips are even a talk when we friends meet together, like you all. Sudden planning with no cash, puncture in the midnight at remote place where another bike got headlight issue. Repairs on the way etc. are the memories.

This being a family trip and the other intention is to explore the destination to recommend to our guests, we did preplanning properly and booked hotels at Calicut as well 2 nights at Coorg.

To understand:

Coorg is 400km 11 hour drive from Cochin

200km 6 hours from Calicut

130km 4 hours from Kannur

This is to plan your arrival accordingly. If you reach Cochin, we suggest to have a halt at Calicut, have sightseeing of Calicut and proceed to Coorg. If arrival is at Calicut, again you can have Calicut sightseeing and move to Coorg. Same as the case for Kannur. Both Calicut and Kannur has good beach to spend time as well sightseeing spots

We planned to have a halt at Calicut, as we could start only by afternoon and thinking of visiting Calicut beach.

Our idea at Coorg is to visit

Abbey waterfalls

Talacauvery

Golden temple

Raja seat

Madikkeri Fort

We normally write travel blog during travel itself, where Sree helps me in taking pictures and post during the journey itself, and now we are on the way to Calicut.

We started at 2.25 pm from Aluva and driving towards Calicut through Trichur

Crossing Thrissur at 3.40 pm

To Calicut, We travelled through Thirunaraya, where MAmangam happened.

A cup of tea and bhajis on the way at Moideen ikka’s tea shop

We reached Calicut by around 8pm, checked in to room and went to beach to enjoy evening and to have dinner.

We then had a walk at beach and enjoyed the pickle shops. It’s a different feel to enjoy this beach in evening. We could find heavy crowd, families in the evening
After this we went to Adams chayakkada and had some more food and tea😍
And returned to hotel to have sound sleep.

Good morning!!!!! and the day starts with a black tea as usual and went to beach again for morning walk.

Nothing more refreshing than a morning walk through the beach
We enjoyed the beach for an hour and returned to hotel

All set for today’s journey, to Coorg via muthanga forest
