Chennai lies in Tamil Nadu and is a neighbor to Karnataka, the state where Coorg is located. People from Chennai often go to Coorg for short vacations and getaways. Primarily because of a paradise lying in the adjacent state, a lot of people from Chennai visit Coorg. What incentivises them is the travel, which is cheaper and convenient and makes all the miles worth traveling. If one asks how to reach Coorg from chennai, then it’s really simple with three basic choices of road, air and train. Clearly, the homestay capital of this part of the country is easily accessible and is a hub that guarantees beauty, tranquility and serendipity. So Coorg, an enchanting location awaits one and one must visit it. Clearly, chennai to Coorg route suits everybody as one can select from air travel, rail travel and road travel to reach here and have an experience to cherish.
To reach Coorg by air, Bangalore is one of the major airports (about 286 km away).This airport serves almost all the domestic and international airlines. However, in case of one traveling from Chennai, then Mangalore International Airport or Mysore Airport shall be the best pick. In case of Chennai, Mangalore International Airport and Mysore Airport are the nearest airports. Located about 160 kms and 120 kms away respectively from Coorg, Mangalore and Mysore airports are well connected to Hyderabad and from here, one can easily find private cabs and buses to Coorg. Although relatively expensive than train or car, this is the fastest way to reach Coorg and the time saved can thus, be used to explore the realms of nature and scenic beauty.
Well, driving from Chennai all the way to Coorg is a tedious journey and can take about 12 hours. The distance from chennai to Coorg by road is a stretch of about 580 kms and is covered in three parts, that is, Chennai to Bangalore/Bangalore to Mysore/ Mysore to Coorg. So, travelling to Coorg in a day is possible but is really hectic and exhausting. It is advisable to start from Chennai super early in the morning, say around 3 A.M. so that one can reach Bangalore by 9 A.M. and Coorg around late afternoon. At other times, it would add to the tiring drive because of citylights and traffic. It is further advised to take the NICE Road and not get into the city. The drive is something that is preferred less but if one is a road trip enthusiast, then go ahead and challenge oneselves because in the end, it all boils down to the chances one takes and the memories one makes.
Coorg has no railway station of it’s own and the nearest railway station is Mysore Junction Railway Station. So one has to travel from Chennai to Mysore by train and further to Coorg by a cab or a bus. Coming onto the train options, there are two daily trains to Mysore. The first one is the Kaveri Express from Chennai Central, which is an overnight train. The second one is the Shatabdi Express, which is day traveling train, comparatively faster (with just one stop) but relatively more expensive. Apart from this, there are two weekly trains as well, connecting Chennai to Mysore. They are the Bagmati Express and the Mysore Express. So, a more reasonable and comfortable option than road would be taking a chennai to Coorg train, via Mysore and hiring a cab or hopping on a bus further. It is suggested to book one’s tickets well in advance.

Ran's 3 days trip to Coorghotel location is not as expected, it was long away from the hill station, since we were new to the place and unaware of the location, the Traveller should have guided us with the locations (climate, ambience) etc, this was not happened, should improve, we have also had a choice to cancel the current booked hotel to a new hotel in hill station with additional cost cost too, eventhough, the Traveller did not helped, overall, with the help of driver, we went to the places to which he is well versed
