We reached Coorg by 7 am. We’d booked Woodstock Resorts for our stay and I was glad that the resort looked decently beautiful. The check-in time at resort was 2pm so instead of waiting around and wasting anymore time, we decided to start the sight seeing. So we freshened up a little and started for the first spot – Mandalapatti Peak. The Coorg valley is in talks these days because of Neelakuriniji, a rare flower that blooms every 12 years only in the hills of shola forests of the Western Ghats in Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Neelakuriniji attracted a huge number of tourists to the peaks of Mandalapatti and Kota betta. The ride to peak was an absolute horror story because of the roads but trust me, the view on the top was every bit worth it. We took a jeep safari which cost us 2400 rupees. After spending a good amount of time the green and purple peak, we came back to resort and checked in. Visiting Coorg is incomplete without having a cup of coffee at Bigcup Café. The coffee is hawwsome!!!
After having food, we went to Abbi falls, Raja tomb, Raja seat and Shri Omkareshwar temple. The Buddha monastery was closed.
Since there is a weekend curfew in Kodagu district, we only had a day to do sight seeing. We couldn’t visit Dubare elephant camp. May be next time.
