If you thought misty mountains and the best coffee flavors are all that Coorg is famous for, think again! Get away from the mundane rigmarole that life often tends to be with the exhilarating experience of white water rafting in Coorg.
Coorg has slowly but surely evolved from merely being a haven for those on the look out for a summer respite, into one of the most sought after river rafting destinations in South India during the monsoons. Approximately 250 kilo meters away from Bangalore, it is easy to make an unplanned Coorg rafting adventure trip to this rugged hilly district!
An ultimate destination for the sportiest is the Coorg Hills, which offer hiking, cross-country and motoring down mountain trails. The Kodagu region is full of trekking trails. The best season to trek is from October to the beginning of February. The other well-trodden trekking trails in Kodagu are in the Brahmagiri ranges of South Kodagu, where a forest trail leads from Iruppu Falls to the Brahmagiri peak. Another interesting trail leads to Pushpagiri (1712m), which is Kodagu's second highest peak. It can be climbed via the village of Heggademane to the north of Madikeri.
The MAI-FMSCI feud has been settled with FMSCI being back in command. The Coorg Rally was the first run under the FMSCI auspices since MAI's reign. FMSCI was in disarray and without the beams manual timings were resorted to. With tight, narrow stages the Coorg Rally is among the toughest in India. "Out here we can't get our car sideways. The track is probably little wider than the Esteems but it is also one of the most enjoyable rallies," said Mazdayar Vatcha.During the recce the conditions were worse with rain drenched stages. This put the pace notes out of kilter so navigators had to improvise during the rally. Coorg's coffee estates are car wreckers and on the first day, front runners Amittrajit Ghosh and Sanket Shanbhag dropped out with broken driveshafts.
