Known to the world as the land of spices, Coorg certainly is a nature lover’s paradise.

Madikeri and Kushalnagar for the two important places of visit. But the real charm of the place is the greenery one can find everywhere. Situated on the Western Ghats of Karnataka in South India, the ideal route would be to go via Bangalore. The journey is an experience in itself. You start in the hustle bustle and heat of a big city going to the small streets and are finally welcomed by cool lush green forests everywhere and soon you will feel like you have lost the rest of the world. Coorg is literally covered by forest all over. Summers are best spend here according to me for its cool weather and gardens, which come in full bloom. Though it’s romantically foggy during winters and heavy rains come along during the monsoons.

Coming back to our summers. I think Coorg has been blessed with the most fertile lands. Its amazing to see plants covered by flowers all over. The Raja’s seat (Garden) in Madekeri is a fine example. But it’s not limited to that. The entire land is a garden by itself. Don’t fall asleep if you are in a cab, you may loose the best view. Long walk in the coffee estates, watching the pepper, cinnamon grow around you, hurry up; you won’t find them on your way to your workplace or schools.

Though you may not find many souvenirs to carry other than the China from the shops around the Buddhist temple, the best souvenirs would be coffee powder, spices and found memories.

Though some resorts arrange for nature trails etc. Dobare is one elephant camp, one can visit to enjoy riding and bathing them. And if you don’t mind dragging your lazy bones 120 kms, then a visit to the Nagarhole wildlife sanctuary is advisable. But the best would be to laze around in a hammock with a nice book and a hot cup of Coorgi coffee.

The Buddhist temple (gold plated) in Kushalnagar is a highlight for its huge idols and the place itself – students and their rituals. Another halt can be, Kaveri Nisargardham, a park with boating and elephant ride. Dobare is one elephant camp, one can visit to enjoy riding and bathing them and the Raja’s seat.
