Karnataka Travel Guide

Before visiting this beautiful state in South India, it’s essential to learn a few details about Karnataka. Carry a map of tourist destinations in Karnataka for a hassle-free trip. Here is some more useful travel information about Karnataka:

Food of Karnataka

The varieties in cuisine of Karnataka have influences from the neighbouring states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Maharashtra. Some typical dishes in Karnataka include Bisi bele bath, Jolada rotti, Ragi rotti, Saaru, Idli/vada Sambar, Vangi Bath, Benne dose, and Ragi mudde. Plain and Rave Idli, Mysore Masala Dosa, and Maddur Vade are popular food in South Karnataka.

Among desserts, Mysore Pak, Holige, Dharwad Pedha, Chiroti, and Sajjige are some of the famous items. In South Karnataka or Old Mysuru region, meals are served on Plantain or Mutuka leaves stapled together into a big circular plate. The final course of the meal is rice and curd with pickles. It’s occasionally served with Buttermilk to be eaten at the end. The Kodagu (Coorg) district has its own unique cuisine including spicy meat Pandi, Kadumbutt, and Paputt.

Language of Karnataka

The Kannada language is the official language of Karnataka, as almost two-third of its population speaks Kannada. Tulu, Konkani, and Kodava are other native languages, while Urdu is also spoken widely by the Muslim population. Tulu is spoken in the coastal districts of Udupi and Dakshina Kannada. And, Konkani is usually spoken in the Uttara Kannada and Dakshina Kannada districts.

English is well understood and fluently spoken in urban areas such as Bangalore and Mysore. There should not be any language barrier if English or Hindi is spoken.

Climate of Karnataka

The peak season for traveling to Karnataka is from October to March, The weather of Karnataka is generally pleasant during the post-monsoon and winter months. Months of December and January witness the brief period of winter with sunny days and moderately cold nights. It is the most popular time of the year to visit hill stations, beaches, temples, and waterfalls in Karnataka.

The Western Ghats along with coastal Karnataka is one of the wettest places in India. The seasonal monsoon sweeps in from the southwest in June and dumps almost 4 meters of rain annually before fading out in September.

Festivals of Karnataka

As per religions and customs, there are several festivals celebrated by the people in Karnataka. Mysore Dusshera is an extravagant 10-day festival celebrated in the month of September or October in Navaratri. Gowri Habba festival, a day before Ganesh Chaturthi, is celebrated by married women to honour Goddess Gauri. An annual festival of 3 days, Hampi Utsav is a boisterous event in which artists from all over India perform various folk and classical dance forms, musical performances, and more.

Celebrated mainly in South Karnataka, Kambala is a buffalo race generally held between November and March. Mahamastakabhisheka is a popular Jain festival that is held in Shravanabelagola every 12 years. Padakkal Dance Festival, Ugadi, Bengaluru International Film Festival, Eid, and Bheemana Amavasya are other notable festivals in Karnataka.

    Being a regular customer I expected a lot from Travel Triange as my previous experience was beyond Compare.Sorry to say but this time it did not meet my expectations.Here are some points which I would like to mention 1.the agent asked me to pay my installment to various people at different places,w
    hich was not at all decent because it seemed like a complete mess. 2.The itinerary was not as per the travel time 3.The agent was reminded again amd again about the trip and other details. 4.The quote was finalised and accordingly i had paid my previous installment but later in extra amount was asked around 6000 extra was paid Ooty was very beautiful.The landscape,the hotel at Ooty,Hospitality of people and gardens were very good.

    Hotel Service in hotel as per 3 Star hotel is too good with primers standard ac room. Hotel is purg veg food quality and quantity is so so.( Because we are non-veg food lovers). Cab service Cab service is much better than I expected special thanks to Mr. Gandharv and cab driver Mr.Sandeep for his
    coperative neture. As the last service of travel agent also good they're given time to time updates for the trip schedule.

    Avinash Konduri

    Hyderabad

    Avinash's 5 days trip to Karnataka

    Overall, our recent trip was good, but we encountered a few issues that dampened the experience. Some of the places we planned to visit were closed due to the early monsoon, which was disappointing. Initially, our driver was quite rude, but after we filed a complaint, his behavior improved signific
    antly, making the rest of our journey much smoother. Regarding our accommodations, the stays in Coorg and Mysore were absolutely awesome. The hospitality, comfort, and ambiance in these locations were top-notch. However, our experience at Kerala Porch.inn was less than satisfactory. The manager was very rude and uncooperative. There was no lift available, and our request for hot water was outrightly rejected. Additionally, the room locker keys were not functioning properly. We were locked out of our room for 30 minutes with our family, only to be informed later that we needed to update our locker key—something that was not communicated to us earlier. Despite these challenges, we made the best of our trip and created many wonderful memories. With a few improvements, this trip could have been perfect.

    Rama Chandra

    Hyderabad

    Rama's 4 days trip to Karnataka

    Resort at Coorg, Woodstock, was excellent. Food was great. Staff extremely courteous. Roopa hotel in Mysore was decent. Restaurant staff very arrogant. Bus was very bad with AC not functioning properly and seats in a very bad condition. Driver was very good, courteous and helpful in all aspects. My
    sore Palace, Elephant Dubare, Tibetan Monastery in Coorg, Bird Park, Chamundi Temple and Srirangapatna temple. Brindavan Gardens seems to have deteriorated, no maintenance and in a very bad shape
