Amen. On the way Aug 15th weekend (long) for a full adventure trip - Jeeping in Chelavara !!

PS: EVERY resort/homestay/cottage etc. is already booked !!! all the best for those who're trying for the Aug 15h weekend. If you're a big group of 8-12 people, let me know, I can organize a superb place in Kakkabe.

BTW souljah am going there this weekend . Hope things work out as planned.

I have seen the term 'Switzerland of India' used for Nainital, Kasauni, Sikkim, Manipur, Dharmashala, and now Coorg so far. Anyways there is no official recognition as such.

By the way can you recollect the name for 'Queen of Hill Stations'? The names you can come across are Shimla, Ooty, Darjeeling and maybe more!

All those phrases are max abused

NIP that was not to insult any of those hill stations. I know that Coorg is your wife's native place and that you love the place so well and I don't deny that the pics are very beautiful. My point is that those phrases are so over used that they are not inspiring anymore. And I will never again post anything even remotely negative about Coorg. Peace

Well guys peace. Its called scotland of india. The main reason is The climate and the culture of the locals. Very similar but the only problem is we dont have an Coorgs version of scotch except maybe Brandy with hot water

Well this is a really nice time for people but be warned its pouring out there and the schools are shut this week. Lots of rivers are in full spate and bhagamandala, talacauvery road is blocked. Well if you visiting for greenery and mist then this is just nice sitting and watching the rains pour with the wind blowing fresh air on you and you having a cuppa hot coffee. Well well heaven. I am already feeling homesick

Only problem with Scotland is that you dont get pandhi curry... Scotch is a different story

Great!
I have been to the top of the falls. One local guide has took us to this place.
It was like 1.5 hr trek from a motorable point.
