        Coorg is definitely one of the most popular camping destinations in the region and there are many spots for you to pitch your tent here. The best part is that you won’t have to sweat the details too much, as the likes of Thrillophilia and Life Is Outside offer camping packages. Thrillophilia offers a whirlwind tour of Coorg; through coffee plantations, historic spots, and hiking trails during the day. At night, you’ll be able to tuck into a barbeque feast, by a bonfire, before retiring to your tent. On the other hand, Life Is Outside skips on the trekking bit and offers a stay by the Civet Creek. It’s all about taking in the sights and the sounds of the forest and the plantations that surround it, and enjoying the escape to serenity here. At night, you’ll even be provided with a telescope to explore the starry sky.
