Or Kodagu, as it’s locally known, is set amidst the Sahyadris or Western Ghats that’s an important and world-renowned biodiversity hotspot. In Coorg, the Western Ghats’ main range extends from Subramanya in the northwest to the Brahmagiris in the south covering a little over 100 kilometres. The Brahmagiris or Marenad Hills form a natural barrier between Coorg and Wayanad in Kerala. Coorg is a truly fascinating place that’s been labelled the Scotland of India.
