Journey to the south-west of karnataka

Hello Reader,
We had been to Coorg and Bandipur for 3 days! All of us had lots of fun there! There were 97 of  us! We went by bus, started our journey at 6:30 am on a Thursday. We stayed in a resort called "Jungle inn". We had been to Abbe falls, Golden temple, Talacauvery, went for trekking at Bramhagiri hills and also went for a safari. 
Coorg is also known as Kodagu. It is one of the tiniest district of southern part of Karnataka  It is one of the largest coffee producer of India. Pepper, cardamom, oranges are extensively grown here. 
Bandipur is basically known as one of the tiger reservoir in India. It is known for its wildlife and has many types of biomes, but dry deciduous forest is dominant.
This place sure sounds fun right!! Do you feel like going there or have you already been there? Tell us in the comments section.
