Short stay at Coorg

Travelling has always been something which I cherish the most, after family and dogs that is. Even if I am going to the same place to visit again, I still feel the need to find something new there. There are some favourite destinations which I have across India and I know I can always visit these places with a new slew of things jotted down. This time around my mother wanted to visit Coorg, and she was very keen on seeing the place for herself, the place being one which I have always talked about.

This time also, I decided there has to be one place which we need to go to for the first time. I had previously visited Irupu falls, Abbey falls, Raja Seat, Bylekuppe monastery, Coffee plantations, Tadiandamool and Tala Cauvery over 2-3 trips. This time around I decided to visit the Dubare Elephant camp and my mother was keen to visit the monastery again. For the next time, I still have some museums and temples at Madikeri lined up.

So for this time, here are some pictures to wrap this trip in memory

  1. The monastery looks so serene....Coorg is on my list since so long!! what is the ebst time to visit coorg?

  2. Coorg is known for its coffee plantations, fresh honey and spices but there is more to it. The restaurants in Coorg offer delicious south Indian dishes, while Coorg tourism offers all the necessaryinformation for the thirsty travellers.


Thank you for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts ...
