Trip to KarnatakaWe had 6 days to cover Mysore, Coorg and Wayanad...in the monsoon season most of the places in wayanad were closed which was not informed by the agent. But thankfully our cab driver was really good and supportive throughout the trip. We ended up spending more time in the remaining places which were functional and in conclusion it was a good trip. I would like to thank our cab driver Baskar for showing us nearby places and good hotels I and my husband would definitely recommend Baskar for any South India trip. River Rafting in Dubare Elephant camp during monsoon was the best...
