COORG CAMPING - KABBE HILLS - BACKWATERS



Are you one of those who have always dreamed about spending a night in a tent beneath the open sky, watching the stars while lying down or share and hear stories next to a campfire? Camping is not just a recreational activity but also a meditation for the brain. It connects us back to the roots of raw nature, our primitive sense. Our idea is to connect with the forces of nature and get back raw nature into the cities rather than getting the cities these disconnected places. Come and explore yourself at our camps.

Coorg is also known as the ‘Scotland of India’ because of its terrain, climate and coffee plantations. Coorg is one of the places which receives one of the highest rainfall in India and remains misty most of the year. Coorg has not just been known for being the largest producer of coffee in India but also a popular place for trekking and camping around Bangalore. Coorg is one of the weekend destinations near Bangalore. Our idea is to camp in the midst of mountains, surrounded by coffee plantations and sublime views of Coorg. This is where we shall be learning the ideology of camping.

DETAILED ITINERARY


We start our journey in the morning towards our campsite in Coorg. The journey to reach the campsite is an experience in itself. We will be crossing historic towns like Mandya and Srirangapatna with the farms, fields, valleys, meadows and coffee plantations to reach Coorg Campsite. Once everyone boards the Get Beyond Limits bus, a brief summary about the ‘Coorg Campsite’ would be provided by our outdoor leaders along with the introduction amongst all of us. The day journey will be very exciting to make it a perfect weekend camping destination around Bangalore.

OFFROAD JEEP RIDES

It is not easy to reach our campsite from the main roads of Coorg which makes it more interesting once you reach there. As soon the main roads end, we take a 4*4 jeep to reach one of the mountain tops which will be our campsite. In this journey itself one will be able to see clear open skies and infinite views.

CAMPING ON A MOUNTAIN TOP AT COORG

COFFEE PLANTATIONS

Coorg is the largest coffee producer of India. We would be quite fortunate enough to see the types of coffee Coorg is famous for. Arabica and Robusta are the two types of coffee which get exported to the whole world from Coorg. It is time to learn more about coffee than just drinking it.

SUNSET FROM THE CAMPSITE

Our campsite is close to a point from where you can watch the sunset. The sky will change its color and the sun will slowly hide inside the huge mountains of Coorg. It is a matter of time when the sky will turn dark and we must make our move to our campsite.

CAMPFIRE

Camping and campfire go hand in hand though depending upon weather. When we look back at history of human evolution fire was said to be life force against wildlife in the night and also a source of food preparation. Down the line things have changed, a campfire is just a mark of leisure in a protected environment. But we must also take initiatives with our Outdoor Leaders to learn how to light a campfire so that we take back more than just the memories when we get back to the city.

Also a campfire is an ideal place to understand new perspectives, listen to the lives and stories of other people. It is said that a campfire is a sacred circle which gives a chance to all those who want to share. The ambience of a campfire makes the stories even more interesting for those who like to listen.

STARGAZING

When you are surrounded in the wilderness and the sky is clear over you, just lie down on the ground to watch the stars! You can study the basics of astronomy to make it a knowledgeable session. To make it even more interesting and easy for you, you can download mobile applications like Google Sky and see the names of all the stars and constellations you will be able to see.

THE DAWN HIKE

Early morning we will do a small hike till we see the Eastern side to witness the sunrise in Coorg. The dawn is a beautiful experience to cherish forever. When you sleep after campfire, the reason to wake up early should be the sunrise in Coorg. The body clock will eventually adapt to the clock of the sun. Once we are back to campsite, we shall follow the campsite etiquettes of disassembling the whole campsite.

We will explore the greenery and the meadows of Kabbe Hills and see the striking view of Coorg from the hilltop. If given a chance by the situation, we will go to a Chelevere waterfall too.
