When someone says Coorg (officially called Kodagu), the first thing that comes to our mind is for example-

Tibetan Monastery at Bylukuppe, Nisargadhama, Dubare- Elephant Camp, Raja Seat, Abbi Falls, a fancy resort where you party all night long and obviously the greenery and nature. Isn't it?

Well, why not explore the unconventional side of Coorg along with the usual ones above?

If you are looking for an unconventional and untouched experience of Coorg, then you know what to do.
