Virajpet is the best that Coorg has to offer. The best time to visit Virajpet, however, is from October to March, that is from early winter to spring. By this time, the waterfalls are at their energetic best while the mountains are deep and a satisfying green. The temperature remains pleasant and affords the opportunity for some of the best treks the region has to offer.
The monsoons have more or less abated by then, but it would be wise to carry an umbrella to guard against a couple of rain showers. Clouds cover most of the town and its surrounding areas providing a very welcome relief from the harsh Indian sun.
Trekking around Virajpet is something every visitor to the town must experience, especially right after the rains when the beauty of nature leaves one in amazement. Do trek to the top of the semi-circular hill right in the middle of town called Maletherike hill. Halfway up is an ancient Ayyappa temple while on the summit is a Shiva temple. If you feel up to it, visit Tadiandomal, the highest mountain in all of Coorg just a few kilometres from Virajpet, which is a popular trek with some of the best scenic landscapes around. Pack clothes for chilly weather though; the temperature stays mostly between 12 ° C to 24° C during this time.
Virajpet can be enjoyed from April to late June as well. It is then one of the best options you will have to escape the hot Indian summers. Though temperatures may climb as high as 32 degrees during the day, the nights are much cooler, and for those travelling to Virajpet from the plains, it is downright chilly!
Walk through the huge coffee estates during sunrise or sunset to witness the delicate bond between nature and man while relaxing in the weather conditions the entire district is famous for. Seasoned travellers will argue that the best time to visit Virajpet in Coorg is the monsoons when a person can truly appreciate the beauty and the fury of nature.
Virajpet sees a lot of rain, and continuous too! This season is recommended as the best time to visit Virajpet for students and for budget travellers as the rates of the various resorts and lodges are comparatively lower than the rest of the year during this season. Trekking is a little difficult as is sightseeing, but for those who dare to risk it, it is worthwhile to see nature in her true form while enjoying a cup of excellent filter coffee in your room!
