Coorg is often dubbed the Scotland of India. But there’s so much more and the Coorg T-Shirt celebrates Coorg’s iconic landmarks – The Tandiandamol Peak, Namdroling Monastery, and Dubare Elephant Camp
It may be called the Scotland of India, but Coorg, the rustic hill station of the South, is more than its green pastoral lands and exotic coffee plantations.
The traditional side of Coorg has a lot to offer - the Talacauvery and the Bhagamandala temples are perfect for the spiritual traveller who enjoys mystical tales, positive vibes and a rejuvenating dip in the Kaveri's waters.
Traces of Coorg’s roots can still be faintly heard from the forests, where groups of men and women chant and worship nature to the rhythmic beat of drums in their sacred groves.
The Coorgis or Kodava people speak Kodava Tak, a Dravidian dialect. Linguists are of the opinion that the language is still in its infancy, but off late, it has taken prominent stride and is now spoken by a large section of the Kodava population.
The best part of Go Heritage Runs is that we are a series. Which means that the destinations change, but some things will always stay same – scenic, historic routes, a great family friendly experience and a fun run-vacation. Keep in touch with us and take a run-vacation with us this year!
