It is also one of the areas with the highest rainfall in the country. This hill station has breathtakingly spectacular scenic beauty and undulating hills covered in lush green forests and a landscape dotted with coffee plantations, tea gardens and orange groves. Bhagamandala, Talakaveri, Nisargadhama, Dubare, Abbey Falls, Iruppu Falls and Nagarahole National Park are among the popular tourist attractions in Kodagu.

Coorg tourist places
Abbey Falls is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Coorg. The water waterfall descending from a height of 70 feet from the cliff offers a stunning sight to behold. The waterfalls attract hundreds and thousands of people throughout the year, particularly nature lovers and photographers, nestled within the lush greenery that is typical of the Western Ghats scenery.
Coffee plantations with stocky coffee bushes and spice estates with trees joined with pepper vines, the waterfall is situated. There is an over-bridge hanging opposite the waterfall, from which you can see, catch and recall the most picturesque scene of white foams gushing down the ridge. The movement of the falls leaves a large amount of spray of water on those who have been standing for some time on the bridge.
As the water flows to join the Kaveri River or Cauvery as one of its tributaries, some small mountain streams and brooks join together to create one of South India's most beautiful waterfalls and fall off its cliff. There are about 200 steps down throughout the walk to the falls from the main entrance and it takes you through exotic coffee, cardamom, pepper and other spice plantations. It is a wonderful chance for shutterbugs to catch the natural world 's true beauty and grace.
Talakaveri is the source of the Kaveri River, located near Bhagamandala in Kodagu district , Karnataka, on the Brahmagiri Hill (not to be confused with the Brahmagiri range further south). Kodavas erected a tank that is now considered to be its source.
Next to the tank, the place has a temple dedicated to the Goddess Kaveriamma and bathing in it is considered holy on special occasions. On the day of Cauvery Changrandi, thousands of pilgrims and visitors flock to the stream to see the rise of the fountainhead of the spring, when the river water gushes up at a predetermined moment. To get a bird's-eye view of the evergreen forested land and the misty hills of Coorg, one can ascend the 407 steps to the top of the hill.
The most thrilling thing about the hills is that they can still hear the temple bells ringing down below in the temple while one is standing on the uppermost level. During the rainy season, if one visits Talakaveri, one will be greeted by the mesmerising sight of the sources of the Kaveri River.
The Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary occupies an area of 181 square km and is named after the highest peak with a height of 1608 m, the Brahmagiri Park. Evergreen and semi-evergreen forests, shoal forest areas in the grasslands and bamboos are the main vegetation of the sanctuary. The sanctuary was founded in 1974.
Black bulbul, Malabar trogon, and emerald dove are some interesting birds one can spot in the area. Such snakes that can be easily spotted are Cobra, Python, and King Cobra. There are also many species in the Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, including macaques, gaurs, elephants, lions , leopards, cats, wild pigs, Nilgiri langurs, and sloth bears. It is a popular attraction that visitors visit almost all year round. It is also well-known among trekkers.
The highest mountain point in Coorg, at an altitude of 1748 m, is Tadiandamol. As the journey is challenging, most tourists interested in trekking are drawn to this location, but the view from the top is unparalleled. Tadiandamol trek is also a very good choice for nature lovers who crave scenic surroundings and are beginners in the trekking scene, despite being the second highest peak in all of Karnataka. Nature lovers can visit the place apart from the treks, as nearly half the journey can be reached by a car.
Omkareshwara temple, reflecting both Islamic and Gothic architecture, was built as a devotion to Lord Shiva by King Lingarajendra in 1820. The temple was built in the Muhammadan style of architecture and has beautiful architecture. That is represented by the dome at the top. The temple resembles the design of a traditional Muslim Dargah because of this aspect. A water tank holds many freshwater fish in this temple and adds to the charm of this temple.
A famous attraction in Coorg in Karnataka is the Madikeri Fort. Located in the heart of the city of Madikeri, the magnificent fort gives visitors insights into the history of Coorg and all that the city has experienced. The elevated structures of the fort also have panoramic views of the area, which is unquestionably spectacular and breathtaking. It can not be argued that Madikeri Fort is one of Coorg's most popular and loved tourist attractions, which is why tourists enjoy visiting the attraction over and over again.
In Madikeri in the Coorg district, Raja's Seat, a garden with beautiful flowering plants and skilfully built artificial fountains, is located. The garden was a favourite spot for the Kings of Kodagu to rejuvenate, and they loved to watch the sunset sitting here as they spent some memorable time with their Queens. The breathtaking view of the sun setting in the undulated mountains is still mesmerising today.
The beautiful garden here is decorated with a multitude of flowers and is a treat for nature lovers, and the location's proximity also makes it a preferred place for locals to picnic. Visiting the Seat of Raja is a perfect way to get a peek into Coorg 's lifestyle of royal indulgence.
The Seat of Raja was built on an elevated ground that oversees the valleys that lie to the west. Early mornings are typically misty and chilly, but the mist lifts slowly as the sun rises, providing a mind-stirring view of the lush green gardens adorned with colourful beds of seasonal flowers. When the day slowly ends with the sun setting in the mountains, the sunsets are just as beautiful.
For your little ones to take a ride on, there is also a Toy Train available and the fountains have been turned into musical fountains. Today, the Archaeological Survey of India manages this place and it is considered to be of historical significance in the region. The Raja 's Seat Garden is known to make it an ideal attraction for nature lovers for its beautiful seasonal bloom, panoramic view and picturesque location.
