Starting in the lush coffee plantations of Coorg, head to the rugged wilderness of Kabini, where herds of elephants roam free. Nearby visit the lesser-known town of Bylakuppe, India's second largest Buddhist settlement, then head on to the royal city of Mysore. From there, venture north into Karnataka's cradle of stone architecture, visiting ancient temples in Hassan and Belur, as well as the iconic boulder-strewn temple town of Hampi. Continue on to the 6th century cave temples of Badami before finally boarding your train to the tiny palm-fringed state of Goa.
