Women in this world have numerous roles to play, from leading the world to taking care of it. Sure, everybody talks about taking care of her but let’s face it, who has the time and space for it? So here’s a delightful way for the women to come together and take it in their own hands to fulfil their dream holiday. This is a short 3-day trip to Coorg, designed to bring together adventure, culture and nature, along with a whole load of fun and excitement! After all, why should boys have all the fun?
The freshness of the mountain air, the lush greenery, brilliant blooms and mist-clad mountains will envelop you in its scenic beauty as you enter the threshold into Coorg. Head straight to the homestay that has been arranged for your accommodation and marvel at the tropical paradise created here with variegated shades of green spilling over the walkways.
Cozy, safe and comfortable log houses and rooms, well equipped with all amenities would be your haven, and the homestay assures delicious, steaming hot homemade meals waiting at the cheerful dining area at all times.
Coorg is not only a place to sit back and take in the pleasant weather, it also has many fun-filled adventures that would challenge you. So, tag along with your girlfriends for some exciting activities. Have fun with archery and paintball, and maybe you can take up the dare to traverse the off roads on a quad bike. Compete with your girlfriends as well as admire the landscape comprising of agricultural lands and fruit-bearing trees that flank your 4 km track. And if you’re up for more adventure, you can request for a river rafting expedition to be arranged at an additional cost too!
Mix up the excitement of these activities with sightseeing trails, get a load of Coorg’s spectacular natural beauty with a visit to the Abbey Falls, Raja’s Seat, and the Dubare Elephant camp for an interlude with the gentle giants. A visit to the famous Bylakuppe Tibetan Monastery would also take you to a completely different world - of a different culture and a different outlook too! And here, you get a chance to indulge in the favourite ritual that happens when girls get together - shopping! Trinkets and artefacts typical of the Tibetan World would make very apt souvenirs for this trip.
And at the end of each day, head back to the homestay for a hearty hot meal and a crackling campfire. Enjoy the chilly evenings with food, music and fun, make the most of it with your besties.
So take that much needed break from your never ending schedules, tag along your best friends for this ‘women’s only’ trip and enjoy the companionship between like-minded folks! The meditative beauty of the great outdoors is sure to be a great antidote to your work-plagued lifestyle!
