In the rain-drenched coffee estates Chikmagalur
The monsoon-filled western Ghats put any traveler into a trance. The cold wind that blows along and the occasional fog that comes along beautifies the scenery beyond compare. Such is the marvel of this place...with coffee-filled estates and the glory of pure nature. Famously called the Kailash of the South
, step into Mullayangiri mountains
for an invigorating trek. The horseshoe viewpoint, as well as Baba Budhan giri, are to be seen. Along with the tremendousness of buttermilk waterfalls, these are sights meant to be imprinted upon our memories forever.
Along with the forests, we have Belur and Halebeedu
which exalts Chikmagalur to a world heritage status and is an enriching stone expedition.
So come along to Chikmagalur, where we learn more about how to be a responsible traveler and be one with nature.
