We booked online home stay, by the name “Orchid Villa” . It is a small feeling home, in between of the green mountain, with the garden outside and the heaven view from every window. Kitchen, where you can cook of your own, small temple, so that you can not miss your daily prayer. Dining area, sit together and eat together.

After lunch, we hired a taxi, for the entire trip, from the Coorg Travel World at reasonable price.Their service is excellent, expert drivers, really helpful and explicit. We settled our luggage and moved on.

If your stay is at Madikeri (Coorg), so the very first tourist place to visit is Abbey falls.

Coffee flowers and its beans, wanted to capture in a bulk. But due to the fences around, as most of the coffee plantations are now acquired, so visiting to them was next to impossible. Or the other way around, if you stay in one of them. They do have homestay inside.

On the way we met pup.
