Known as the Scotland of India, Coorg is a hill station located in the Kodagu district of Karnataka. With lush green forests, gushing rivers, and coffee plantations, there is a lot this place has to offer. With its close proximity to Bangalore and the famous tourist destination of Mysore, this is the perfect spot for a weekend getaway or even a full-fledged holiday considering the number of adventure as well as family related activities one can find there.
For the adventure seekers, there are a number of forest trails opening up to beautiful views, which will take your breath away. The thick forest cover has a rich variety of birdlife, which is definitely an enticement for the birdwatchers out there. There are also a number of treks in the surrounding hamlets, leading to the top of nearby mountain peaks, which provide a bird’s eye view of the lush greenery that this place abounds.
Coorg receives heavy rainfalls during the monsoon time and this channels large volumes of water into the rivers, making it suitable for adventure sports. If you are visiting Coorg post the monsoon rains, then you can also indulge in some white water rafting activity in the nearby Barapole River for the desired adrenaline rush.
For those of you looking to spend some quality time with your family, there’s no shortage of interesting things either. You can take a walk in one of the many plantations here and see how the common spices used in our everyday lives look like in their natural surroundings. From black pepper and turmeric to cardamom and cumin, all your taste-makers can be found here. There are also coffee plantations, where you can see and learn how the world’s favourite drink is manufactured right from scratch.
Dubare elephant camp is another fun filled place, where you can see how elephants are being raised and taken care of. You can indulge in daily activities like feeding them, bathing them, etc. This becomes an enjoyable experience for people from all age groups.
