This summer I got the chance to visit Coorg, a small town amidst imposing mountains in Karnataka. Hailing from Rajasthan, this meant an escape from the scorching heat. Lush green mountains and the serene breeze make you feel relieved. Its beauty is worth cherishing.
There is a famous tourist spot called Mandalpatti. There are jeeps which take you to the highest point of the hill. Driving on narrow and dusty roads with almost no visibility due to fog is adventurous and heart throbbing. Once you are at the top point, the scenic view is magnificent. You can sit there for hours and couldn’t help embracing the nature. It is an escape from the mundane life. There are coconut orchards and coffee plantations spreading over many hectares.
You can find coconut sellers at every inch of tourist spots. One cannot resist relishing the sweet and fresh coconut cream. One of the major tourist attraction is a famous Buddhist monastery. It was built by Tibetan refugees and is the second largest Tibetan settlement after Dharamsala. This place is huge. It’s sanctity and divine aroma is what sets your heart free. This was one hell of an experience that I would treasure my entire life.
