Hill Stations

Estate landscape

Home to game hunters

Originally home to game-hunters and a magnificently moustachio’d warrior class, Coorg later became the mountain retreat of the British Raj. During British rule, high altitude areas all over India were chosen as restorative refuges from the blistering heat below. Remote Hill Station towns were built in the classic Imperial style; a home-from-home in which the colonial elite could live, eat and party for Queen and country.

Today, the Hill Stations are a colourful, alluring holiday destination – a luscious culinary region that mixes modern tourism with the legacy of a bygone era; a place where global travellers and the Indian middle classes still look to escape the heat and bustle of the cities, and experience the unrivalled local cuisine for themselves.
