Went to Coorg last week...just for the weekend...It's a 3hr journey from Thalassery in Kerala to Virajpet(Coorg's capital).The roads are horrible but the cool fresh mountain air makes up for it.Virajpet is a small noisy town surrounded by mountains and coffee plantations.Coorg is known famously for two things ,its coffee and women.Just had a glimpse of both ;).The place is blessed with natural beauty and you can find many quiet places if you are willing to explore.Time has no meaning here.So does the internet.Just a single internet cafe as far as I could see in the town and that too exorbitantly priced .A vehicle (a jeep preferably) is a must.Kannada is the language but everyone knowns Malayalam as well.The central town square is straight out of a Ruskin Bond novel with goats & cows having a free hand in everything.The coffee in the hotels are garden fresh and needless to say tastes divine.14 km from Virajpet is "Orange County ", a luxurious and expensive resort with all modern amenities.But you can just visit the place during the day as well without spending a paisa. Came back with my batteries fully recharged....
