Kodagu attracts significant number of tourists

Published on : Wednesday, November 20, 2019

With mountain mist beginning to surround Kodagu with the onset of winter, a notable change can be witnessed in the tourism activities in the district. Tourism in the district, which was affected by back-to-back floods and landslides, is now showing signs of bouncing back to normalcy with visitors thronging the tourist spots in promising numbers.

 

The owners of homestays, hotels, resorts, tourist taxis, cars and jeeps are hoping for an increase in their businesses. The first week of November marked an increase in the number of tourists.

 

Even though there were large scale landslides in 32 villages of Madikeri and Somwarpet in 2018, no such incidents of such massive scale was repeated this year, which is one of the reasons for a significant number of tourists.

 

Tourist spots like Raja Seat, Dubare, Abbi Falls, Bhagamandala and coffee and tea plantations are again buzzing with tourists after two years.

 

After incessant rain, tourists were prohibited from visiting Mandalpatti, as a precautionary measure.

 

Mandalpatti has been the most favourite destination for tourists. After the rains stopped, the gates to Mandalpatti have been thrown open to the tourists again.

 

Rental jeeps have also started plying to the location after a long gap of three months. Jeeps are preferred by the tourists and the local people to visit hilly terrains. A lot of tourists were also seen in Bhagamandala and Talacauvery.
