  • Weekend Crowds

    Being a popular weekend destination for residents of Bangalore, Coorg can get crowded with the influx of travellers over the weekend.

  • Lack of Nightlife

    If peace and quiet is not what you’re looking for, then Coorg is not a holiday destination for you. There are no buzzing clubs or discos here and nightlife options are limited.

Describing It

Imagine thick forests, scenic waterfalls and acres of verdant coffee plantations, where the fresh aroma of coffee and spices heighten your senses and views of stunning pastoral hills take your breath away. This is the Scotland of India. This is Coorg.

Coorg or Kodagu, as it’s officially called, is one of the most accessible and popular hill stations in South India. More than picturesque vistas, Coorg also has a rich historical past.

The balance of history and nature is reflected in no place better than in Coorg’s administrative capital, Madikeri. This sleepy town commands spectacular views of the Western Ghats and numerous waterfalls, temples, forts, lush forests and plantations, add to its attraction.

The contemplative surroundings of Coorg and the adventure sports that you’ll find here, makes it a complete holiday destination. You can spend the evening touring coffee plantations or explore the valley by whitewater rafting or rock climbing – the options for the enthused traveller are endless here.
