Gusting winds that make the eucalyptus trees dance hypnotically, thick fog that envelops mountain tops in a layer of mystery, and delicate cascades that enhance the allure of green fields – monsoons in Coorg are truly a magical time. Whether you’re searching for the perfect spot to relax and spend time with your family or looking to indulge in thrilling water adventures, out of all the places to visit in Karnataka, Coorg wins by a landslide.
The only thing you need to keep in mind is that the region experiences continuous rainfall between June and September. Therefore, you are advised to take additional steps to prepare for your trip. Here are a few essential items you should carry to make your monsoon holiday comfortable and memorable:
- Light clothing:
You don’t want to get stuck lugging around a heavy suitcase in the rain. Pack as lightly as you possibly can. Cotton clothing is the best option because it dries fast and occupies minimal space. Although, you should carry a sweater or jacket to combat the early morning winds.
- Rain gear:
Umbrellas and windcheaters are a must, and if your itinerary involves trekking across Tadiyandamol and Brahmagiri, don’t forget to carry rubber boots that provide a good grip. They will prevent you from falling over slippery boulders and come in handy when you’re strolling along coffee plantations, as there can be leeches and other slimy creatures lurking in the fields.
- Sunscreen lotion:
Wearing sun protection on a rainy day may feel redundant, but it’s important to remember that UV rays are present regardless of whether or not the sun is shining through the clouds. To prevent excessive exposure to sunlight, bringing a sunscreen with SPF 30 should get the job done.
- First aid kit:
You may not need it, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Include an antiseptic and disinfectant for treating any wounds, along with some Band-Aids. You should also carry generic cold medicines in case the morning chill gets to you.
- Thermos flask:
There’s nothing more satisfying than sipping on hot coffee after getting drenched under Abbey Falls. A thermos flask will keep the beverage warm for long hours and give you the chance to form sweet memories with your family.
Keeping these items handy will help you enjoy your trip to the fullest extent. Complete your list of essentials by booking your stay at Club Mahindra’s Madikeri or Virajpet resort, two of the most popular places to stay in Coorg.
