    Dear RKG,

    First reach out to Mysore and from there you can hire a cab ....The roads are very good from Mysore to Bylukuppe where you can go to the Golden temple. After that the roads are not all that great but manageable. Some of the places which is a must visit in Madikeri and around are

    1: Nisarga Dhama , 2: Dubare elephant camp(you also have river rafting here). 3: Abbe Falls.

    You can opt for a home stay...some are very costly but check out ....
    From here you can also go to Bagamandala and Talacauvery....its the place where cauvery is born....
    Weather there will be pretty cold.

    it is an amazing place. i hv been there twice.. both the trips were amazing. just that all the view point are atleast 40 kms away from each other and hence we can cover only 2-3 places in a day.. but it is worth it.. the travel is also very pleasant .. buddha temple is amazing and a life time experience. .. elephant camp and thala kaveri is also great.. if u r planning to stay in orange county, then it is in one extreme of coorg and u will not be able to see any place.. the hotel is very good by itself, so you will hv to enjoy the hotel and food alone.. u hv to stay close to madekeri.. i stayed in coorg international once and in a home stay the second time... i enjoyed the home stay more.. i was only rs.1500 but neat and clean place.. Buy filter coffee powder from ganesh coffee ( in madekeri)... it tastes like heaven :).... u can try bandipur forest also on the way.. if possible plan for 4-5 days trips.. a week end is not enough..

    I have spent lot of time in Kushalnagar area and although most Indians just go to the Golden Temple, you will miss some amazing temples if you just go there. Hire a local driver (Tibetan if you can find one) and ask them to take you to the other temples....distance is not much and there are amazing temples to see and some almost the same size as the Golden Temple. There are a couple of decent hotels in Kushalnagar as that area has a lot of international visitors to study at the Tibetan monasteries.
