Coorg is the former name of Kodagu, a district in the state of Karnataka. Prior to 1956, it was an independent state but was merged into the state of Mysore soon after. The locals are known as Kodavas and are traditionally land-owning agriculturists with martial customs. It is interesting to note that the Kodavas are the only people in India permitted to carry firearms without a license!!
Coorg is now a popular tourist getaway destination that is dotted with massive coffee and spice plantations, the Western Ghats, and beautiful homestays in scenic settings. The most popular part of Coorg is the Madikeri town that sees the most amount of tourist footfalls owing to the numerous accommodation options available there. Our Coorg tour package takes you through the best places to see in Coorg, experiencing its culture and indulging in its colorful cuisine. The Coorg tour package is delivered by our professional driver bringing to you the best stays and the most interesting sights to see.
For many decades Coorg was quite inaccessible – a landlocked hilly region, making it almost essential for the locals to make the best use of local ingredients and spices, that spawned a cuisine like no other. Coorgi food is rich in flavors and the usage of local spices makes it even more appealing. Some of the must-have dishes in Coorg are Coorg Pandi (Pork) Curry, Kadambuttu, Baimbale curry, Akki Roti, Koli Curry, Kummu Curry, Maange Curry, etc.
One of the highlights of our Coorg tour package is a visit to the Namdroling Monastery. This monastery is the largest teaching center of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism in the world and also is one of the largest Tibetan settlements in the world. The monastery is located in Bylacuppe village which is 40 kms from Madikeri town. It is called the Golden Temple due to the golden work that adorns the gompas and the paintings found everywhere in the monastery.
