Preferred Destinations for South India Tour from Bangalore (Part 01)

We know that most of the tourists take Bangalore- Mysore- Ooty Tour Package for their South India Tour since long time.

But, my suggestion is, it will be more good, if they can add Coorg and Malampuzha in this same package as these amazing destinations are fastest growing tourist hot spots in South India and hence their trip will be more enjoyable and memorable due to less journey per day.
