    I had been to Abbey falls around 3 years back, the road was in very bad shape then, and I didnt have the courage to take my Punto there. Instead went there in my friend's santro. He stays in Madikeri town.

    Some pics from that trip.

    Nice pics. Do you mind sharing the wallet impact of amanvana resort? Coorg used to be one of my most favourite biking destination during my pre-marriage days. The first long ride I had with my wife was also to coorg :)

    Do post some more photos of the Fiat if you have them...

    Excellent and crisp write up! and good snaps too! Wonderful place to spend your anniversary!
    I had been to coorg (madikeri) during the first week of December. The roads from Bangalore all the way till Madikeri was in supreme condition! Newly laid after Suntikoppa. The road to Abbey falls was in the worst condition possible due to some cable laying work. Half of the road was dug up at most places and many places we had got stuck because only one vehicle could pass through. Couple of pics attached showing the road condition. Roads from Madikeri to Talacauvery is in mixed condition - good roads uptil the turn off to Napoklu, very rough with potholes then till Bhagamandala, and excellent surface then on till the temple. the entire route is very scenic though.
