Top Things to do in Coorg

Visit Abbey Falls

Abbey Falls, often known as Abbi Falls, is a major tourist site in and near Coorg. It is located approximately 10 kilometres from the town of Madikeri. The water cascades from a height of 70 feet down the rock, creating a breathtaking spectacle. The trek to the falls from the main entrance takes you past exotic coffee, cardamom, pepper, and other spice plantations. Despite the fact that bathing in the falls is now illegal, there is an over-bridge adjacent to the falls where visitors can see the scenery. 

Neravanda B. Nanaiah bought the land from the government and planted trees all over it, making it private property. The natural beauty of the area emerged as the forests cleared, revealing the appealing streams and waterfalls to the public.


Trek to Tadiandamol

At 1748 metres above sea level, Tadiandamol is Coorg’s highest mountain summit. The majority of people interested in trekking flock to this location since the journey is challenging, but the view from the summit is breathtaking. Tadiandamol trek is a great alternative for nature enthusiasts who want gorgeous surroundings and are new to trekking. Aside from the treks, nature enthusiasts can visit the area because it is accessible by vehicle for nearly half of the journey.

The base camp near the large rock and the peak are the two greatest spots for camping. I would recommend that you set up a place in the base camp. There’s water nearby, and it’s a big enough space to fit a lot of tents. Beginners should avoid attempting to reach the summit. However, if you do go, bring plenty of water because there’s not much at the top, and arrive early to secure your position because there are only 5 spots available.

Many trekkers begin their journey in the village of Kakkabe, but another viable option is to drive directly to the start-up point A, as the route is very straightforward and smooth.
