A Mild Weekend at Coorg

by Madhav Srinivasan 1946 days ago

Coorg, the Kodava region of Karnataka, is an enchanting place with its varied topography and scenic beauty. This beautiful place is a favorite of trekking enthusiasts.

Coorg or Kodagu is a district in the South Western part of Karnataka. The district borders Kerala and lies on the slopes of the Western Ghats. It is an enchanting place with high hills, dense forests, coffee plantations and wildlife sanctuaries. Although Coorg tourism peaks during the summer, the winter months are also a good time to visit many of the places in this district.

Places to Visit

Coorg has so many attractions ranging from religious sites, nature reserves, coffee plantations to wonderful resorts. It also offers excellent trekking trails, but these may not be ideal for trekking during the winter months. Winter in Coorg tends to be misty, and the trails may not be safe. However, there are lots of other activities you can plan on doing here during the winter season so book your Coorg tours in Karnataka, accordingly.

Suggested Winter Visits

Madikere: Madikere is the district headquarters of Coorg. The main attraction in Madikere for all tourists is the Madikere Fort, an old Fort that was repaired and rebuilt by Tipu Sultan. Inside the fort, there is a palace, museum, prison, chapel and temple.

Another interesting place here is the Raja’s Seat. This small arched ‘Mandapa’ used to be a favorite place of relaxation for Kodava kings. This mandapa, which is located in the middle of a beautiful garden, offers a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside, and it is also a good point to view beautiful sunsets. Book your Madikeri tours in South India, for an enchanting holiday. 

The Omkareshwara Temple: This is another must-see place in Madikere. This temple is unique in its architectural style. It combines elements of Islamic and Gothic architecture, a strange style for a Hindu Temple.

Coffee Plantation: Plantation tourism is a popular concept in Coorg as it is the coffee cradle of India. Many of the coffee and spice plantations here offer nice home stays for tourists. This option can be ideal during winter as you have a nice cozy place to stay in and you can also explore the plantation and its surroundings in safety.

The Kaveri River and Waterfalls: Talakaveri is the origin of the river Kaveri and also a place of pilgrimage. Another holy site is Bagamandala or Triveni Sanagama, where the rivers Kaveri, Kannike and Sujyothi join together. There are four temples nearby dedicated to Shiva, Subramanya, Ganapathi and Vishnu.Abbe and Irpu are two beautiful waterfalls in Coorg. Even during winter, it might be possible to visit these falls on a clear day.

The Tibetan Temple: Located at a place called Bylakuppe, The Tibetan Golden Temple is in the second largest Tibetan settlement in India. Numerous Coorg tour packages from Bangalore are available. 

Nagarahole National Park: This beautiful and large Nature reserve is a must-visit spot on any tourist’s list. This Nature reserve is open throughout the year to visitors.

Dubare Wildlife Camp: This place is a perfect idea for a few days stay. It offers tourists a way to see and interact with elephants in the Elephant Training Camp.

There are many more options you can explore for a Winter Weekend at Coorg. It is a wonderful place at any time of the year. Just sit back and relax at a vacation home or a resort and watch the mist-covered mountains or woods and enjoy the sound of bird-calls in the air.
