After the blissful trek to Paradise, we just spent our next day by visiting the famous places in Coorg.
Must visit places - Dubare Elephant camp - place to enjoy with elephants and river rafting, Chicklihole Reservoir, Abbey falls, Nisargadhama, Namdroling Monastery, Raja's Seat, Talacauvery.
Monsoon Trek – Things to take care:
1) First, come out of your comfort zone to enjoy the nature’s gift
2) Wear complete rain covers and waterproof shoes. Poncho’s will also be helpful.
3) Carry Waterproof backpack and use ziplock pouches to hold your mobiles, camera and other accessories.
4) Avoid shorts, wear trek pants. It will help you from leech and insect bites. From my personal experience, which I did wrong.
5) Carry at-least 2 litres of water in bottles and some energy drinks.
6) Have Dettol and Volini spray handy to safeguard from leeches.
7) First Aid box, a must as most of the trail will be slippery during monsoon.
8) Beware of elephants, Tadiandamol trek trail also an elephant footpath. Camping was banned since 2016 after spotting elephants movement along the path.
Travel & Transport:
Coorg is situated around 265 km's from Bangalore. You have to reach Virajpet and then Nalkanad Palace to Start the trek. Buses are available to Coorg and Local buses to Nalkanad Palace. Taxi’s and Jeep are optional. It's a day hike, can be completed in single day and returned.
I always prefer OYO rooms for best and comfort stay. Lot of OYO options available in Virajpet and Kakabe.
To enjoy hassle free trip, always use the best combo @tripotocommunity and @oyorooms. #OYOCation #tripotoxOYO
Bon Voyage! Enjoy the Monsoon Trek ✌️
