Coorg, India (PressExposure) May 12, 2009 -- The onset of Monsoon in the hills of Coorg are a distinctly different experience from that of monsoons in Kerala. The rains come in as a gentle blanket having spent its fury while hitting the coast. There is a virtual continuous curtain of rain once the monsoon gets going in earnest by mid-July. The Kirudale camp will remain specially open till end of June for monsoon and nature lovers this year.
In the early stages of the monsoon, rains tend to be in small spells but at times can be long and heavy, sometimes lasting days at a stretch. On those days, fresh water streams get recharged and flow through the hills and the camp area down to the river at the base of the camp. Coorg Planterâs Camp at Kirudale enjoys some of the highest rainfall in the district, averaging as much as 100 inches in the entire season. The camp will close on June 30.
If you like the outdoors and wish to spend some time with your family in pristine nature, take a nature walk, help your child spot over a hundred variety of birds, sit by a waterfall, enjoy a long or a short trek or go for a bit of adventure, then come to Planterâs Camp - a unique Eco Adventure Camp at Kirudale in Madapur, Somwarpet, Kodagu (Coorg) District. ( http://www.coorgplanterscamp.com and http://planterscamp.blogspot.com ).
Planterâs Camp is located in four acres of forest land surrounded by plantations and provides guests the experience of living in the heart of untamed nature while enjoying the challenge of an untouched landscape with its stunning beauty. It is an exclusive retreat for nature lovers who will experience the forest, sacred groves, a varied bird population, changing moods of a rivulet at the base of the camp and water cascades from mountain springs.
The Camp has comfortable Swiss tents with all amenities and friendly planters who will host you, take you around the coffee plantations, sacred groves and the third highest hill in Coorg. The camp is a family eco adventure camp that de-stresses, introduces you to the joys of nature and helps build a bond with a world that is fast disappearing.

We want our guests to take away an experience. The experience of getting up in the morning and listening to the babble of the brook, the calls of a hundred different species of birds, taking a walk to the water cascades and enjoying mountain springs, getting a tour of a plantation and enjoying local cuisine in an earthy camp spread. We offer the experience of the beauty of Nature in Coorg without any of the dressing up and trimmings that usually accompany every tourist destination.â
