Beauty at its best

Hill Station
Coffee Plantation
The former summer refuge of Brits, Coorg is bedaubing with the plenitude of incomparable beauty. Every bit, right from the roads to the lodges, homestays to the panoramic valleys, waterfalls to meadows is laden with unsurpassed natural beauty. An éclat of bounties of nature, Madikeri lies on the Western Ghats of Karnataka state. Ideally, Coorg is one place to lose your self and never return from. The real Coorg lays ensconce in its escalating valley characterized by unending expanse of coffee verdure and roaring waterfalls, farmlands of pepper and nutmeg, lemon, grass and ripen Oranges. Formerly called as Kodagu, it was rechristened to Coorg, the anglicized version of Kodagu, for this lolling moniker proved to be a difficult spell for the erstwhile British rulers of India.

The landscape here is painted with different strokes of beauty, of which river Cauvery is so much woven in the fabric of Coorg. Replete with naturalness and beatitude, Coorg is a fecund land beyond belief. It is carpeted and covered in almost every hue of green, veiled with white mist all over, and its pulchritude specked with rosewood forests, bamboo, and sandalwood. In Coorg, wild beasts and martial race of brave men and women command a second and third glimpse with sharp profiles.

But, not all is encapsulated in Cauvery and Coffee in Coorg! This land of Kodavas or Coorgis, as it is fondly called, has a populace that represents a blend of religiosity, admiration, and philanthropists. Pork, the favorite dish, rules the taste of people and is widely eaten in the town. Kodagu is a state of polytheists and the primary deity of the state is Lord Iggutappa, the most important local God who is an incarnation of Lord Subramani, the God of snakes, rain, harvest, and rice. Just as people and culture reign this sinfully striking home of Kodavans, festivals are an integral part of the popular culture here. Centered on agriculture and war, Coorgis observes three major festivals: Kailpodhu, Kaveri Shankaramana and the harvest thanksgiving at Puttari, enjoyed with grand pomp and gaiety.

Welcome, Kodagu- A beautiful destination.
