Coorg (also known as Kodagu) is a region in South-West
of Karnataka known for its Coffee and Spice Plantations.
Coorg is situated 2000 - 3500 ft above sea level and
enjoys pleasant weather throughout the year. The region
received moderate rainfall all through the year and
therefore visited even during monsoon. The region
is known for its unique cuisine, culture and its plantation
resorts and homestays. Madikeri (3500 ft) is a hill
station and the main town here. Siddhapura (2300 ft)
is a plantation town.
South Coorg (Kutta etc.) are now coming up as
base for adventure oriented getaways for rafting,
fishing and trekking. South Coorg lies closer to Nagarhole
national park buffer area and 50 kms from Wayanad
Wildlife Sanctuary. From here guests can easily access
Nagarhole park and Wayanad wildlife sanctuary of the
neighboring North Kerala. This is off course is just
an entry level wildlife trip and does not compare
with the core area safaris conducted at Karapura /
Hunsur Side gates.
