Kotabetta Trekking & Camping - New year special : ( Dec 31st & Jan 1st )
Kodagu or Coorg is nature’s treasure trove where misty hills and forests mingle with coffee and spice plantations. The forests are covered with shola vegetation with many evergreen patches and there are various species of butterflies and birds. Situated on the eastern slope of the Western Ghats. It is a hilly district; the lowest elevation is 900m above sea level. The highest peak, Tadiandamol, has an altitude of 1,750 mts; second being Pushpagiri at 1,715 mts and third is Kotebetta at 1620 mts. The principal river is the Kaveri River (Cauvery), which rises at Talakaveri on the eastern side of the Western Ghats, and with its tributaries, drains the greater part of Kodagu.
This is a classic hill and jungle trek passing through different terrains and with the unique experience of camping by riverside and waterfalls.
Distance from Bangalore – 250kms
Trek Summery :
Kotebetta is the third highest peak in Coorg and the trek passes through villages, coffee and spice plantations initially. Later we will enter thicker forests and some rocky surface. Once we reach the peak we see the amazing views of the shoal forests and Western Ghats.
We would have lunch on the top of the hill and interested people can also visit the small shiva temple atop the hill. An hour of ridge walk on top of the mountains after lunch will give ample opportunity for some lovely shots of the hills and forests. We reach our camping spot next to a stream by evening and we pitch tents and later dinner by campfire. Cook dinner and chat and welcome the new year.
