This is the Singapore forum. Maybe you should post your message on the Bangalore Forum. I am sure they can assist you.

All three of them are beautiful places. Coorg and Wayanad are about 6 hours drive from Bangalore where as Munnar is a bit far off (about 10 hrs) from Bangalore. Another place that you may consider is Ooty which is about 270 km from Bangalore and enroute, you can stop over at Bandipur wildlife sanctuary.

Ofcourse, as others have mentioned, you are in the wrong forum. You will get better responses on the Bangalore or Mysore forum.

Hi simpi04,

I noticed that your topic was inadvertently posted in the Singapore forum, so I have moved it on your behalf to the Bangalore forum. I hope you find the information you need to plan your upcoming travels.

Kind regards,

simpi04,

Wayanad and Coorg are more accessible from Bangalore (just over 5 hrs drive). Munnar will require you to take a flight to Kochi and then drive down. Or, endure a slightly long drive (buses take about 10 hours, may be 9 hrs by car).

I'm a little confused when you say 'wildlife rains'...do you mean wildlife & rains? It is supposed to rain in all the three places, but, monsoons are not plentiful this year. It's raining sporadically.

From Bangalore, you can see wildlife on your way to both Wayanad (at Tholpetty or Bandipur sanctuaries) & Coorg (take a slight detour via Nagarhole National park). There are forests near Munnar too.

The question is how many days do you want this trip to be for? Munnar & Wayanad have tea estates. Coorg has coffee plantations. You can drive from Bangalore, spend 1 or 2 nights in a forest and spend 2 nights at one of these destinations. Is that something you had in mind?

I recommend the same as Wanderlust. For wildlife Wayanad is the best location. Ngarhole and Wayanad Wildlife sanctuaries are on your way to wayanad. If you want to cover a lot of wildlife try the following route.

From Bangalore ----> Banglore - Mysore - Gundlupet - Sulthan Bathery - Kalpetta(Wayanad)

Towards Bangalore --> Kalpetta(Wayanad) - Manathavady - Nagarhole - Hunsur - Mysore - Bangalore.

With the above route, you can cover a lot of jungle during your drive.

Dear Wander & Fleming,

Is Kalpetta (Wayanad) worth visiting 1st week Sept? mustseeindia.com says "The South West monsoon takes over during the months of June to September. The North East monsoon follows suit, during the months of October and November. The place experiences torrential rainfall during this time, and travelling to Kalpetta is not advisable due to this"

Yes, September falls in monsoon/rainy season. You can expect rains and travel if you are OK with it. This year the monsoons are not very severe so far. I was there in Wayanad last August, there were occasional rains, but enjoyable. Its totally upto your personal choice whether you like to travel in rainy season or not.

You may have to lookout for spots like Pondicherry if you want to avoid rain fully. Of course one cannot predict the weather now.
