Best Trekking Tours in Coorg

Apart from being one of the most scenic destinations, Coorg is also known for its adventure activities. It offers adventure sport activities like quad biking, rappelling, zip lining, hiking and trekking and water sport activities like river rafting, kayaking and canoeing. With the best trekking tours in Coorg, it is known to have the best trekker’s spot in the whole of South India. It opens a lot of challenging terrains as well as minor trekking spots suitable for trekking enthusiasts. Both, experienced as well as beginners can try their hand on trekking at Coorg. There are many jungle, forests and hilly terrains where trekkers can have a great experience. As Coorg has an extremely rugged and dense terrain across all parts, there are many summits to conquer. The less vegetation on the mountains help you find your way around. However, most of the treks to the mountains involves an arduous steep climb to the summit and in case trekkers get injured, getting back to the base camp can become an arduous task in itself.


Similarly, trekkers can also choose to trek in the lowland areas of Coorg that are absolutely unspoilt and thus attract many. But this terrain has its own difficulties, so taking a guide along is advisable. Tourists who are specially visiting Coorg for trekking activity must also keep the season, climate and weather conditions in mind. During the winters, temperatures near the summit can drop to freezing levels after sunset. This makes hypothermia a possibility. So the higher you climb, the colder and windier it will get. Same way, during the summers, sunburn is a risk and heat stroke is a possibility, so make sure you are well prepared. Some for the best trekking tours in Coorg are Nishani Betta Trek, Tadiyandamol Trek, Kopatty, Madikeri, Brahmagiri Trek, Kumara Parvatha Trek, Pushpagiri Trek, Galibeedu Trek, Kotebetta Trek and Kakkabe Trek.
