Located in the south-west part of Karnataka bordering Kerala . Coorg also called as Kodagu (as natives call it) is derived from the local version Kodavu and the people of Kodagu.
Known as the Scotland of India, is a gorgeous hilly landscape covered with abundant trees. The smaller towns and friendly people make this the best choice for a secluded honeymoon.
The predominant entity here is nature at its best. Coorg is like the dreamland of the philosopher. If you’re the type who likes to mingle with nature, romance in the mountains, feel the tingle of the cool and gentle breeze, watch leaves flutter in dance-like movements and hear sounds of birds fill the air, then Coorg is just the place for you.!
For the adventurous at heart, it is an absolute treat. There are trekking, golfing and angling (Mahaseer too!) options available. You can also relax your body and mind with special Ayurvedic massages. Coorg is also as trendy and happening as its close neighbour Bangalore. Abbey Falls is a serene location to visit, hidden off the main road through fragrant coffee and cardamom plantations. And, with Nagarahole and Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuaries in its borders, there are several places you can go for a long walk and look over the valleys.
Coorg enjoys a moderate climate. Winters are pleasantly cool at 15-20 degrees Celsius though during December to February the minimum temperature may go down to 9o C. Summers are only slightly warm at 25-35 degrees Celsius.
The best season to visit Coorg is between September and March.
