Take a walk at Coakers to enjoy the Kodai view if the sky is clear. Food is mostly south Indian but at some restaurants, North Indian dishes are also available."

HolidayIQ reviewer Indu says, "This, despite the current rise in people and trade, is a place that can make you touch the clouds. The steep hills, the hairpins and the view from there, the green blanket, the long roads are completely worth it for the nature lover."

HolidayIQ reviewer Mehul says, "Coorg is blessed with nature, the flora and the fauna. Enjoy the life full of nature. You will not always have the opportunity to enjoy them together. Enjoy the gushing waters at Abbey and Iruppu waterfalls. Relax and watch the beautiful sunset at Raja's seat. Visit the holy temples Omkareshwar, Golden Temple and Namdroling Monastery."

HolidayIQ reviewer Dinesh says, "Chikmagalur is different from the usual hill stations which boast of a fleet of spots in a short radius. The attraction of this place is the drive to each of the destinations and the trekking options. The people are decent folks, unaffected by the attention that a popular tourist spot gets."
