Coorg
From Bangalore  284 km  4 hrs 58 mins
Snuggled in the western ghats, Coorg, an anglicised name for Kodagu, is a district of the state of Karnataka. Known as a historic town, Coorg was abode to many warriors, the spirit of whom is still seen in their favoritism toward adventure sports and alcohol. Coorg is also the birthplace of the Cauvery river and the Kodava people. A whiff of mystery surrounds the origin of the natives, Kodavas. Their aura is rather exotic with agriculture, wealth and success in the blood. Coorg is an epicurean haven and a cozy destination with hills, plantations, a famous river, wildlife and coffee. The region is also referred as 'Scotland of India' because it is one of the most picturesque districts in South India and is well-known for its coffee plantations and lush green forests. Foodies, nature lovers, history enthusiasts and most of all adrenaline romancers, find Coorg to be an adventurous getaway. There are numerous homestays and luxury resorts in Coorg to cater to different travelers.

Pork dishes beat other main courses hands down with accompaniments in various forms of rice. Desserts will have a hint of local honey. An alcohol session almost always precedes a good meal.

A dagger called pichakatti is tucked inside a red sash worn around. Traditional head gear called Mande Tuni completes the look. Women adorn themselves in jewellery that are based on nature, like sun and moon. There is a reflection of Coorgs' animist beliefs. However, river Cauvery is considered the mother and most respected. Rituals are not presided over by a priest, but an elder. A lamp - Nelakki Bolucha is hung in each house in honour of the elders of the clan. Each family unit is called an 'okka' and any property owned is collectively developed.
