Last month, Airbnb and BMW India came together to curate the ideal Coorg experience. Here’s what we learned about the top activities in Coorg:

While exploring the unforgettable views and unbelievable scenery, you can also speak to locals, and visit the charming little stores to understand the region more closely. This bike tour is a must-try for those wanting to experience the unexplored in Coorg and can be booked on Airbnb.

Soak in the Sunset at Mandalpatti

Situated about 30 km from Madikeri, Mandalpatti is also known as Mugilu-Pete or an abode of the clouds. As is apparent from the name, it promises the most breathtaking views of the surrounding hills. It’s best if you can catch the sunset, but even otherwise, a 360-degree view of the clouds blending into the mountains is a memory that’ll stay with you for a lifetime.

Explore the Coffee Estates

A visit to Coorg is incomplete without a visit to its lush coffee plantations. Did you know it takes 3-4 years minimum for a coffee plant to mature, and reach a point where its beans can be turned into hot, steaming coffee? From red cherries to your coffee pot, learn all about the journey of the elusive coffee bean as you walk through the lush estates that dot the hill station. Not only are these walks great for the soul, but you can also learn about sustainable techniques like regenerative farming and more.

No trip is complete without stopping to purchase some of the best produce from the region and Ainmane, is the best place for this. A local cafe and specialty store in the heart of Coorg, this store boasts of the best collection of food products from the highlands of Coorg and the Western Ghats. Pick up your favorite blend of coffee, grab some of Coorg’s famous local spices, and don’t forget the chocolate that this region is famous for.

Try a traditional Kodava dinner

The way to a tourist’s heart is through the stomach and a Kodava meal ticks all the checkboxes. Try the famous pandi curry, bamboo shoot curry, akki roti, Koli curry, and kadambattu to truly understand the unique flavors of the hilly region. Airbnb Superhost, Preeth who owns the Udaya cottage in Madikeri can curate a scrumptious local Kodava meal for you on request.
