  1. Trekking

Trekking is done- solo or in a group; it can be easy or difficult; it may involve the family or just hard-core adventure enthusiasts- whatever you choose, Coorg has plenty of trekking options.

Each trek will bathe you in natural beauty and mental peace. Some of the well-known trekking routes are as follows-

Moderate to difficult

 the 14 km (one-way) Kumara Paravatha trek takes around 8 to 10 hours to complete- 

Easy to Moderate

The trail is relatively pristine and untouched by human destruction, which adds to its allure. The path winds through coffee plantations, spice gardens, and the breathtaking Western Ghats.

It is a 5 km (to & fro) easy to moderate level hike that starts from the Bhagamandala forest Range.

Tadiandamol is the highest peak in Coorg

Moderate to difficult

35 km from Madikeri, Tadiandamol lies in the Bhagamandala Range Forest and has steep terrain right from the beginning. The total distance is 12 km(to and fro) and takes 6-7 hours depending on the pace. Start early, so that you are back by 4 pm because it passes through dense shola jungles. 

Galibeedu

Moderate to Difficult

It’s a 30 km village trek in the most beautiful natural surroundings in the lush green hill of the western ghats. The trek starts from the Galibeedu village in Coorg, that’s just 8 km from the best homestay in Coorg homestay - Premium 2 BR Green Villa Orchid Luxury Stay, and culminates into an astonishing view on the top of the hills. The most exciting part of the trek is that you can expect Elephants, Gaur and leopards to be sighted among sprawling greenery, and views of the mountains. 

2. Kayaking

Another thrilling adventure activity is Kayaking at Madikeri, or you can also try it at other places like Kushalnagar or Kakkabe. It is adventurous and tranquil at the same time. The rhythm of the paddling motion and the incredible views surrounding the river will leave you happy. Kayaking is an ideal mix of feeling relaxed and recharged simultaneously.

3. Fishing:

The Kaveri River is shallow in Valnoor, which aids in the growth of abundant aquatic life. It is a popular destination for fishing. Several fish species, including catfish, eel, and mahseer, can be found in the Kaveri's backwaters. Apart from fishing, catching crabs is a fun activity. The sunset is also spectacular. Valanoor is also a birdwatcher's paradise. We are sure that this exciting activity will be on your list.

Fishing permits are needed in advance from the Coorg Wildlife authorities.

October to May is the ideal time for angling

4. Rappelling

Rappelling is a physically demanding sport that also calls for mental toughness. This enjoyable activity necessitates a helmet, carabiners, gloves, and other necessary safety equipment. Rappelling is available at the Chelavara waterfalls, but rappelling down a 150-foot-high cascading waterfall takes guts.

Rock climbing can be done by anyone, but the minimum age to try such activities is 18 years.

Prices begin at 1,000.

Coorg's majestic hills, green vistas, dense vegetation, moderate temperatures, and humidity make for ideal mountain biking conditions.

6. Camping

Camping helps to disconnect from everyday life. The rolling hills, breathtaking waterfalls, and surrounding scenic beauty make camping at Coorg ideal. Aside from the well-known camping areas, there are numerous off-the-beaten-path locations.

Srimangala, a village about 60 kilometers from Coorg, is one of them. Throughout the dense forest, there are numerous campsites. The mountainous backdrop adds to the thrilling experience. Trekking and stream walking are two other adventurous activities available.

Nangala village near Virajpet is another excellent camping location. The place offers breathtaking views of the coffee and areca nut plantations

Waterfalls and coffee plantations abound in Madenadu, near Madikeri.

7. Rock climbing

The steep, rocky hills of Coorg are ideal for rock climbing and rappelling. Learn the techniques of rock climbing, rappelling down your face, and using various equipment and ropes from expert climbers, at the Nishani Range.
