Dancing in the rain: COORG Part II

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Coorg Part II (click here for Part I)! Coorg is a small hill station in the rain forest area in Karnataka. After a pleasant six-hour drive from Bangalore, we reached our resort. When we entered the lobby, we were left speechless by the spectacle in front of us. The clouds engulfed us and there was NOTHING beyond it! It rained non-stop in Coorg. So if you see foggy pictures, you know who to blame 😉 😛

Packing tips for monsoon vacation

As I mentioned in the previous post that the only practical things to wear that I had in this trip was my skinny jeans, PJ’s and chappals. But that made me enjoy this trip even more because I could not fret over clothes and was ready in minutes to enjoy this beautiful city. What I loved the most about Coorg is the feeling of being close to nature; fresh forest fragrance after each shower, the cooing of birds and sudden descent of fog, makes it a very different experience.

As for sight-seeing, there are a few places that one can visit in Coorg. We went to Abbey Falls and Golden temple. We also wanted to visit Dubbare where you can feed and bathe elephants, but could not make it. But the best thing to do is to have rain forest walks and early morning hikes. Most resorts offer these in-house and they are a must. We undertook one and the experience was amazing. We went through muddy waters, saw golden bugs, coffee plantations, crossed a fallen tree, saw forbidden forest et all.

We stayed at Taj Vivanta Madikeri and loved everything about the resort; the views, our cozy room, helpful staff and most importantly, FOOD 😀 Check out some pictures of the resort…

For the last day, I again relied on layering for the journey back to Delhi. I paired a hounds tooth patterned shrug over an all-black outfit.

PS: No, I was not paid by Taj for their marketing…although I do wish I was 😉
