Kopatty Coorg Trek
Located in Coorg known as the ‘Scotland of India’ & with its varied trek trail which includes everything from a jeep track to dense jungle to top of the hill grasslands, Kopatty is a must for every trekking enthusiast.
Tucked away in the district of Coorg, Kopatty is a small but beautiful trekking destination which has it all from coffee plantations & jeep tracks to dense jungle & vast green meadows .

Add to this a couple of other beautiful places to explore and the company of like-minded travellers, you’re sure to come back with lots of wonderful memories and an invigorated ‘you’.

Is this trip right for you?
The campsite we stay at is clean & well-maintained. However, Kopatty being a remote location, luxuries such as cots & beds, fans etc can’t be expected. Part of the experience here is learning to be resourceful with the available facilities. Internet access is scarce and is unreliable when it’s available. But you must know that though there’s no WiFi in nature, you’ll get a stronger connection 😜This is a no-frills trip to a relatively remote place therefore food will be basic.
Things to carry
Don’t worry about packing too much or too little. Here’s just everything that you need to carry- a rucksack, a water bottle, torch, sunglasses, sunscreen, personal medicine, a pair of clothes, undergarments, socks, a towel, toilet kit, portable charger, flip-flops, hiking shoes. And, a camera to capture the memories(optional).Don’t forget to bring loads of enthusiasm 🙂

Welcome to Coorg! The Scotland of India! Trek up the Kopatty hill & soak in the beautiful views that the hill has to offer from its peak. The initial part of the trek is on a jeep track where you'll cross huge coffee plantations & also paddy fields. This part of the trek is very easy to do & also gives you a glimpse of the local lifestyle. After you cross the jeep track you enter into dense jungle & cross a few streams before reaching the open grasslands. Once you see the open grasslands, the peak of Kopatty is not far from here. Reach the peak, breathe in a lung full of pure mountain air, rest your feet for a while & have packed lunch before starting your descend back.Visit Triveni Sangama which is the confluence of the rivers Kaveri, Kannike & Sujyoti.
