If you go via Sravanbelagola, you wont any decent places.
If you take  Mysuru route, you can plan few places en-route.

I have visited Coorg in May(last year)
Temperatures are too high. 
Coorg is best during monsoon and winter. 

But on the upside you can strike good deals with the accommodation.

Apart from temples you wont find any places on this route.

Coorg can be done easily in a single day, In my opinion break at Bangalore will cost you both time and money.

Would suggest you to start early morning from Hyderabad. 

 

If you any queries/places to visit around Coorg, let me know..

Its must visit and Awesome place. Try  and visit in Rainy season.

My itenary is here.

 

- I visited last year in Aug. From Aug 11th to Aug 16th for 5 days.

- Started from Gachibowli and reached Lepakshi and took break.

  Had lunch and Dinner at the same place. Visited Lepakshi temple.

- Stayed in APTDC Lepakhsi that night. 1 star stay. 

- Started morning at 5AM from Lepakshi and traveled via Bangalore.

 Crossed Banglore via NICE road and took breakfast in udupi hotel in the Mysore route.

- Reached Ranganathittu bird santuray by 11AM and a boating.

- Had lunch in Hunsur. there 2 restaurants on the left side. one is Cafe coffee day and other one didn't recollect.

- Reached madikeri by 5 PM and stayed in Lee coorg hotel. Very good hotel. And dinner and brekfast is really tasty.

- Visited Raja madap in the evening. its walkable from hotel.

-Next day morning vacated the hotel and visited Abbey falls. 

- Then parked the vehicle on the road side at Abbe falls junction and took a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Visited Mandalapatti hills. Awesome views. 

They charged 2000 Rs for this Madalapatti visit. I shared this with other family (1000 + 1000).

- Then moved to a Home stay and stayed there for 2 nights.

- Home stay - 30KM from madikeri near virajpet. https://goo.gl/maps/CoQjkPP6wpB2

- Food and stay is awesome. It is inside Coffee plantation. Breakfast, Dinner and stay included. No Lunch

- Next day visited Tala kaveri, Bhagamandala. Came back and stayed in the home stay.

- Also visited Celevela falls on the way to home stay form tala kavery. But the road to the falls is tricky. Check before you take a turn there.

- Next day morning vacated the home stay and visited Dubera elephant camp. Spent some 2 hrs there. You need visit this place by 9.30 AM I think. Check the times. Otherwise elephants will go away. Elephants will come for bath daly in the morning and in the evening. this is on the way to Mysore.

- IF TIME PERMITS you can visit Namdroling monstery and golden temple in Kushal nagar. We didn't visit this place as there is some road construction happening and roads closed.

I heard this is also a nice place to visit.

- We had a lunch at hunsur at the same place.

- We directly went to Bandipur forest and stayed in the forest guest house for that night.

- took 2 rides one in the evening and one in the morning!

- Vacated the Forest stay and started back to hyderabad at 10 AM. Reached Hyderabad by 11 PM.

Lunch at Ananada bhavan near bangalore out skirts. Snaks after crossing Banfalore airport. Started at 5.30 AM from Bangalore Airport and had a stop over near jadcherla for dinner.

 

Hope this helps!

 

 

Wife and kids liked Coorg so much that they wanted to go again!

Try and visit in the rainy season or immediately after the rains. When we visited that time there is no rain fall.

 

Drive, Stay, Food, Places, Falls are 5 star..

Every one liked Mandalapatti 4 wheel drive. This is super awesome! Don't miss it!

 

Note that, I visited Mysore 3 times already, so didn't took any break in Mysore!

Mysore is also a super awesome place. There are many places to visit. Palace, Temple, Srirangapatna, Brindavan garden,

There is also some water fall near by.

 

There is a temple in Madikeri and you can visit. We didn't visit due to lack of time.

Food is awesome there. Udupi hotels, Local flavours. You can try.

Also, we had lunch at bhagamadnala when visited Tala kaveri!

Thank you very much for sharing details. very helpful

 

Would suggest you to rethink about Coorg in Summer.
If you belong to "place doesn't matter as long as enjoy the drive" category,  you will definitely enjoy the drive. 

Ooty will be little cooler, if you are looking for alternatives.
