If you have been contemplating visiting Coorg, now is perhaps the best time to visit as June onward (till August) becomes rather inhospitable with humidity and heavy rainfall. While planning for Coorg, I am sure you would’ve chalked out places such as Namdroling Monastery, Abbey Falls, Rajat Sea, Iruppu Falls, Talakaveri, etc. We recommend that you also also plan for the following offbeat places:
About 16km from Virajpet and very close to Thadiyandamol, Chelavara Falls has surprisingly not attracted as many tourists as has Abbey or Iruppu Falls. If you are a nature lover, the lush greenery is a sight to behold and one can enjoy the same with some privacy because of fewer tourists at the place. While one can get into the water, the locals advise not to do so; you must keep an eye out for all the danger signs and adhere to the local advice.
Situated about 6 km from Somwarpet town, Honnamana Kere Lake is the largest lake in Coorg. If you enjoy some peaceful and quiet time, this is the place to be. If you are spiritual, there’s a temple adjacent to the lake that’s dedicated to Goddess Honanmana. The place is surrounded by mountains, hills, and coffee plantations. The visitors must carry their own snacks/food as they will not find any eateries around the area. Also, do not rely too much on Google Maps to reach the place as you may end up on forest roads that are blocked.
