It is hard to pay in mobile too since there will be no network coverage in the largest hill stations.
Be conscious on the roads
One of the important tips is to be cautious about driving on the roads of hill stations like Coorg. Avoid traveling at night or travel with caution during winter after 3 PM as there will be a misty fog climate and the roads will not be clear. A major reason for this is roads in this region are very narrow and driving at night is very risky. Carry important items like medical kit, water, umbrella, torchlight, fruits, etc. for any emergency purpose
Hire a private vehicle
If you are coming with friends or family as a group, hiring a private vehicle on rent from Bangalore, Mysore, or Mangalore to Coorg will be the best option as getting a vehicle from the local town is not easy especially on the long weekends or peak tourist seasons.
These are the most important things to be noted before planning to Coorg. Another important thing is smoking in the public is not allowed in Coorg, Usage of plastics is not allowed, respect the locals & their culture and maintain peace while on the roads avoid noise.
