Coorg is already known worldwide for its incomparable beauty and gorgeous natural environment, making it one of the best hill stations in India. However, if you like to travel offbeat, you should visit Virajpet, situated at a distance of just 22 km from Coorg in the district of Kodagu. Also known as Virajpete which is derived from Virarajendrapete, after the name of the former ruler and founder of the place, the dainty little hill station is tucked in the heart of the district and is hidden from view. Other than mesmerising beauty and surreal environment, the place also holds significant historic importance. Besides, it is also known for its world-class coffee and spice plantations, and top the list when it comes to weekend getaway destinations from the neighbouring cities.
