Coorg Blog

Coorg. Known throughout the world as the ‘Coffee Cup of India’, is a perfect home away from home for the discerning traveler. A lush plantation paradise punctuated by pristine forests, this land has a unique charm of its own which has not been spoilt by the intrusive hand of man. Fresh air, captivating sounds of nature and the heavy fragrance of seasonal coffee blossoms refresh one’s senses.

In this Blog on Coorg, we take you on a trail of tropical evergreen forests, to a long – gone era of tales of a land in sprawling homesteads. Spiced with a dash of the local lore and sprinkled with a colonial legacy it is a bastion of an age bygone. And your experiences can find a place here as well. Come home to a Blog on Coorg!

Eye to eye

Gowri Subramanya

Fern Fever

Gowri Subramanya

It’s not a cool alliteration I made up. Fern fever was a trendy phrase in the 1800s in the United Kingdom and America.

Kanishka Sarangi

We limbered as we walked through the exhausting, yet enchanted woods of Coorg in search of those brilliantly colored inhabitants of the forest.
