Hiking in Coorg is a popular activity, especially given its dense emerald rainforests centuries old, and the discerning traveler looking for a destination off the beaten path will head up to Karkette Peak. In the majestic hills, through the forests and plantations, this peak appears as an idyllic world surrounded in mist. With the help of an English speaking guide who will brief you about the trip, you'll set off to this peak, passing through the ancient forests full of exotic local flora and fauna. The wilderness eventually gives way to the Nishani Betta hills of the Western Ghats, with its open grasslands, taking you up to the peak itself. Otherworldly while surrounded by mists, on a cloudless day the peak shows you the entire valley, providing ample opportunity to take panoramic shots of the beauty of Coorg. It's an absolute must-see when visiting this area.
