Ans. II (2) :  A trip to the smallest district of Coorg is very interesting as well as exciting. September to March are the best months that will have an invigorating effect on your health. The monsoon season is boring. One can feel excited in the company of birds, beasts, and langurs in the forest. The water games like rafting, canoeing, and rappelling are worth exciting and do not create boredom for the trekkers. Coorg people show much interest and excitement in the army.

The Coorgi Regiment is famous for its valour. It is the largest Indian Tibetan colony. The monks wear interesting robes of Ochre colour. This is very interesting about Coorg. It was an invigorating and eye-opening account of a beautiful place that our country has. I felt excited and thrilled to read that Kodagus are such a martial race. The wildlife and the panoramic view of the entire misty landscape excited and thrilled me. But it was worrying how alone I would go there. The idea that I might be lost in case I went all alone made me worried.

But the idea that I shall see everything about the place thrilled me. It is so thrilling to see this piece of heaven with evergreen forests and spices and coffee plantations. Today, scientific research across the world has attempted to establish the beneficial qualities of tea that the Japanese and the Chinese knew anyway from ancient times, attributing to its numerous medicinal properties.
