Cozy Coorg

A first time weekend visit to Coorg is an exhilarating experience, especially if you have your own vehicle to drive around. Traveling to this place with cousins whose idea of fun matches yours, is the icing on the cake. A few pics to tell at least half the tale. As to the other half, shh.. not to be asking!!
Abbey Falls was a sheer disappointment with middle aged men with their bulging potbellies trying to act cool in the chilling waters. They would climb up the slippery stones around and shout in triumph urging their families to take pictures. Looked like Himalayas would take a beating here. (thankfully not captured here - of course, it was quite a feat to avoid them in the shot!)

Raja seat truly provided the chance to enjoy the beauty of the valley and the surrounding blue hills.

Of course, it was pretty clear that the rain god had decided to make it difficult

A disguised sunset - if one can call it that way!

Wow, that's quite some place. Maybe I should put it down on my holiday list :-)

RustyNeurons said...

You should! The place is real neat. Like I said, it's the company that matters :)

Pictures that speak a thousand words! Brilliant :)

And yes! I'm putting it down on my holidays-that-I-will-take-someday-hopefully list :)

I had Orange County on my list, not Coorg per se.. but I've always wanted to see a coffee plantation - coorg has many, right?

Coorg does have coffee plantations, but in this trip we had kinda excluded it.
Thanks for the link. I had lost it ever since u moved to wordpress.

Did you wear coog saree and trip down the hillsides singing "MAdikeri sipaheeeee?"
If so, where is pic and if not, why not?

RustyNeurons said...

No, I didnt wear a coorg saree and come tumbling down coz I knew there would be no Sipaheee standing there waiting! As for the singing part, even if he was there, he would have run away listening to my 'velvety' croon.
