Destination Coorg!

Coorg is not just known for its scenic beauty and coffee, but also is a conclave of history of the Kodava Kings making it a regal place to visit. Known as the “Scotland of India”, Coorg is an emerging tourist destination which is still unexplored by tourists, situated in the dense foliage Kodagu District or Coorg is rated as one of the top hill station destinations in India. The destination offers archaeology, Kodagu culture, Kodava Cuisine and unexplored places. Some of the most popular tourist attractions in Kodagu include Talakaveri, Bhagamandala, Nisargadhama, Abbey Falls, Dubare, Nagarahole National Park, Iruppu Falls, and the Tibetan Buddhist Golden Temple.

Karnataka is a tapestry of colours, cultures, flavours, landscapes, timelessness and heart stopping beauty. It’s a place where vibrant worlds seamlessly meld into one another every few hundred kilometers. Sedate plains suddenly rise to dizzying mist covered hilly heights, and then plunge with careless abandon in a white-watered freefall to become languid rivers that flow past cities where time has stopped altogether. And cities where time rushes a relentless rush to keep up with the world; cities that sometimes escape into the deep quietude of thick forests and sometimes, stretches their arms wide open to embrace the sea. Host to some of India's largest and most powerful dynasties, the state has across the centuries, carried a legacy of art and culture. Its geography - making it, by all means, a 191,791 square kilometre trail of whimsy.
