A hill station with endless things that any good hill station would have—only multiplied by the splendour and the awe—Coorg has what would take you on a lifelong journey of living in a world par excellence basked in the glory of nature.

Situated on the Western Ghats in the south-western part of Karnataka, west of Mysore and east of Kasaragod, its altitude ranges from just 390 feet above sea level to a staggering 5740 feet (Tadiandamol peak) above sea level—a stretch of hills, forests, and plantations with towns embedded like the jewels on a crown.

Moderate and pleasant temperatures through the year, waning and waxing between 17°C and 32°C, with the South West Monsoons and the Northerlies bringing in a good amount of rain over the lush green valleys, plantations, and forests.

The birthplace of the famous river Kaveri at Talakaveri, which begins its journey here, traverses over the hills, plains, cities, and states, with its final abode in the Bay of Bengal. The confluence of other rivers with Kaveri, Kannike, and the underground mythical river Sujyothi makes Sangama a very famous picnic spot. There are numerous other picnic spots with waterfalls, streams, rivulets, and winding roads, which make the journey across the countryside truly magical.

Though Kodagu is a vast area and has numerous small and big towns, Coorg real estate growth is focused more on Kushalnagar, Virajpet, Madikeri, and Somwarpet for independent houses, villas, apartments, residential plots, commercial properties, and farm houses in the midst of surrounding forests.

Demand for agriculture property in Coorg has always been high and growing. It is more centred on investors who would like to buy property in Coorg with plantations to cultivate and benefit from the surplus cash crops and related businesses, having residences in the vast estates themselves. The price of agriculture land in Coorg is on par with Ooty.
