The residents of the state named “West Bengal” in India are known as Bengalis. They love to travel. Most of the parts of West Bengal are very hot and humid in the summer (April-June) and monsoon months (June-August). The temperature sometimes crosses 40 degrees Centigrade and the humidity makes the situation worse. So, a trip to cool hill stations is the most popular summer activity for the travel-lover Bengalis.
This summer, I visited one of the most beautiful hill stations in India, named Coorg. The temperature was around 20 degrees Centigrade and thus, it was a wonderful escape from the scorching heat for a few days. Coorg is a district in the state of Karnataka in India and is located on the eastern slopes of the “Western Ghats” mountain range. Coorg is a hilly district, the lowest elevation is 900 meters above sea-level and the highest peak rises to 1750 meters. I really enjoyed the natural beauty of the place.
