Take a large measure of natural splendors, stir in some history, add a dash of old-world charm, garnish with the fragrance of coffee and served up with warm smiles. That's Coorg or Kodagu, as the people of this little district in Karnataka call their land.

The Greek Connection

Kodavas are the descendants of the soldiers of Alexander the Great who invaded India in 327 B.C. The soldiers, married into the local population and migrated along the coast. They have maintained a separate identity. They are fiercely independent and were never conquered by either Tipu Sultan or the British. And to this day all Kodavas retain the privilege of carrying firearms without a license.
