Coffee with Coorg

A cup of coffee, this is a thing which I need first in morning. It is just a dream come true when we we getup with so many coffee plants around. Yes, you get it right; last weekend I went to Coorg and it was a place with peace, romance, a nice coffee aroma and so many elephants all around.

Talakaveri, is the place that is generally considered to be the source of the river Kaveri. It is located by Brahmagiri hill near Bhagamandala in Karnataka, 1,276 m. above sea level.

We need to take 379 steps to reach the above place, however view was worth for that.

It was such a breathtaking experience one can ever experience in their life. Then we moved towards the coffee fields. There we got to know how a cup of coffee is processed and served to see.

There were so many trees of black pepper as well. Its all makes us feel very close to nature. This was such a magical experience which is captured in our soul.

Sometimes we do get confused what to admire in a place. It has everything perfect – The Nature, The Climate, The Weather and top most The Local People.

The Abbey falls- waterfall always attract me. But it was disappointing, there was no maintenance at all.  The rise in tourists influx over the years has taken a huge toll on the natural beauty of the place and resulted in polluted water that stinks during the summer season and unaccountable amount of plastic littering throughout the estate and the river.

From Madikeri the waterfall is accessible by a well laid road till the coffee estate gate. Thereon, a small trek through the coffee and spices plantations leads to the waterfalls. The roar of the falls can be heard from the road.

Then in the evening, we went to Raja Tomb – again a perfect place to visit. It was a normal place, however is has something which was so appealing.

So tried, but still enjoying

On Next day, we went to Dubare Elephant Camp – most amazing place. We crossed Kaveri River manually and then reached the camp. It was so incredible to cross the river. The stones in river were very slippery and was difficult to cross the river. Thanks to Lavie Shoes, I was able to cross it without difficulty.
