This is a list of
destinations in Karnataka that are visited in Monsoon.
Karnataka - It rains a lot on monsoon but drives get that much green and
beautiful. Jog Falls which is roughly mid-way on the Mangalore - Goa route
comes to life during monsoon. So Jog falls combined with some idyllic
beaches and temples (Mookambika, Murudeshwar, Udupi Krishna Temple etc.)
make for an excellent driving break (3-6 nights).
+ Nagarhole - Coorg is a coffee plantation country and so its supposed
to rain persistently but it rarely rains beyond what one can take. Rains
here are enjoyable for those who do not arrive with a fixed plan and aren't
too short on time. Its also a good time for those who wish to enjoy bargain
prices at luxury resorts. As its any case raining on and off all the time, a
segment of guests arrive to relax, rejuvenate and indulge in luxuries and
amenities that these resorts offer.
(Generic Name for Rajiv Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary) lies between Enjoyable
Rain option of Coorg and heavy rain option of Wayanad and still it does not
rain too much here and park unlike ones in Madhya Pradesh are open for
Safaris. Nagarhole has several luxury lodge options and though from the
point of view of Bird watching and wildlife its not the best season, but the
terrain and over experience when combined with Coorg still makes for a good
Getaways - Those who think doing driving around the coast, chasing
wildlife or roaming around plantations is not such a great idea in Monsoon,
then visiting heritage destinations of Mysore and Hassan / Belur are good
for a short break. Idea here would be to consider some of the getaway
options as these sectors and also spend time relaxing and
rains much lesser in Hampi, Badami, Bijapur areas but it also gets really
hot when it doesn't rain and from the pure heat point of view its not
something that we could recommend but does come under consideration.
Options - Mangalore / Udupi
- Karwar / Gokarna / Murudeshwar - Coorg -
- Mysore / Hassan / Hampi / Badami / Bijapur
