  Details
Overview
Misty Woods is nestled in a part of in the mountain ranges called 'Karadi moole', built in an estate that sprawls over 100 acres of land. More over this untouched nature is on the foot of the highest peak in Coorg '‘Thadiyante Mol' and barely a step away from 'Nalknad Palace', built in 1794, famous for its painting and carvings.

You approach this revolution of hospitality thru' winding roads by the side of paddy fields, coffee plantations and lush green mountains draped in mist. The rich aroma of Coffee and Pepper, the enticing fragrance of Cardamom and wild Honey and the fruity flavour of Oranges beckons you to dream world, free from pollution and hustle bustles of the outer world.

The gurgling streams on both sides of this land becomes a roaring water fall during the rainy season.

An ideal place which inspires a painter and a poet.

Golden Temple
Golden Temple is in the Tibetan colony, where Tibetans keep their culture and heritage intact. Dalai Lama visits this temple to offer prayers occasionally.
Tradition
Distinct Culture What strikes a first-time visitor to Coorg is probably its stunning beauty - both, of nature and of the people. Not only is Coorg beautiful to look at but its people are equally good looking. They are a fun-loving race, very friendly and pure of heart. 

It is said about the Coorgs (or Kodavas as they are locally known) "They are easier to love than to like." One of the most hospitable people in India, the doors of their homes are always open to guests. Cosmopolitan in their outlook, they make friends easily.

Languages
Coorg has its own language known as "Kodava Tak". It has no script. It is a combination of Kannada, Tamil and Malayalam with Kannada being the most influential of the three.

Folk Dances & Songs The "Janapada" (folk) songs rendered during marriages, parties and at the time of deaths and births, even during fairs are very philosophical and have a lot of meaning. Most folk songs are related to specific occasions and there seems to be a song for almost every occasion. Huttariya kunitha, bolukata, ummathata, kolata, olagathata and kathiyata are some of the folk dances of the Coorgs.

Attire
The Coorg attire is a little different from that of other Indian states. Men wear a traditional 'Kupya' or long, black, button less, short sleeved, V-neck coat, reaching below the knees and a 'Chaley', a beautifully tasselled silken sash, at the waist. Women wear the sari in a distinct fashion where the pallu doesn't go over the shoulder but goes around the back, over the right shoulder and a beautifully crafted pin on the right collarbone holds it in place.

Customs
The dowry system quite prevalent among most Hindu communities is almost unknown here. Marriage ceremonies although held in traditional dresses, are performed without a Brahmin or puja. The elders help in the rituals and bless the couples.

Festivals
The traditional festivals of the Kodavas are associated with either the agricultural or the military nature of its people. Keilpodu,Puthari (Huthari) and Kaveri Shankaramana Observed in October are the main festivals.
