Scotland of India – Coorg

Hey friends,

After a long break, here I am back with a breathtaking vacation spot which is known as Scotland of India – Coorg. Coorg or Kodagu is a district in Karnataka, India which is known for its natural beauty comprising of beautiful misty hills, acres of coffee plantations, countless streams and lakes, thick forests and magnificent waterfalls.

My search for a peaceful yet beautiful place to explore which contain all essence of Coorg led me to Coffee cadu estate and Mandalpatti hills.

Coffee Cadu estate stay , Madikeri.

These exotic cottages are located 10 km from Madikeri town in the middle of coffee plantation. I reached Coffee Cadu in the afternoon. After check in formalities and lunch, at 3 pm we started for Mandalpatti hills.

The  lush green Mandalpatti hills are situated 18 km from Madikeri town, at an altitude of 4050 ft and is part of Pushpagiri reserve forest. Only way to reach uphill is by 4 Wheel Drive vehicles. You can hire a bike or can opt trekking too. We hired a Jeep. The drive was bumpy throughout but the effect was nullified by the breathtaking view on either side of the road.

Mandalpatti is a full-course meal. The magnificent view of the Pushpagiri mountain range along with cool breeze and fog took me to a different world. I dont remember how long I sat there embracing the scenic beauty. I waited till sunset and once the light started fading, the day giving its way to night, I started back to my cottage.

By the time I reached back there was a bonfire awaiting and it was quite a blessing to sit by the fire in that chilled night.IMG_1775

Early morning, I went for a walk through the coffee plantation and was undoubtedly reviving. The whole area was covered with coffee plants with deep red fruits (coffee bean) with orange trees planted in between. Pleasantly cold climate with gentle breeze and mild fog made the walk a memorable experience.

Spending some more time exploring the coffee plantation, I went back to the cottage to pack my stuff and have breakfast as it was time to for me to checkout and wind up my small trip.

3 Things About ME:-

  1. I am a nature lover. Especially when it comes to forests, trees, rivers. I hate to see them being destroyed.
  2. I am a hard core Game of Thrones fan and a disappointed soul now as Season 7 also came to an end finally and there is a long wait for the upcoming season. I started with the books first and once all books were done, started watching the episodes. Can’t wait to watch the next season.
  3. My favorite colour is RED. From my coffee mug to my Lappy everything I end up picking red.

Now its time for me to give answers to the questions asked by my nominator.

My Answers :-

1) What made you want to start blogging?

I have been into writing since long but what I write was confined in just Instagram captions. Few of my friends who frequently follow them pushed me into starting a blog where I can be around like-minded people and improve myself. I never had an intention to start one if they didn’t encourage me. I take this moment to thank those amazing people in my life who are my strength and my inspiration.

2) What is one thing in this world you wish you could change?

Nice question !!! Being living in a country with a  lot of potential but ruined by the people who fight with each other in the name of religion, caste, Gods and language, I wish there is no discrimination in the world in name of gender, religion and status. I wish to see a better world void of wars and treachery with people living in peace , love and harmony.

3)What is something you like to do for fun?

Travel and Photography. Nothing else can make me more happy 🙂

4)What does a self care day look like to you?

I am not a person who bothers too much about my outer appearance. I believe in the inner beauty of the soul. But my profession forces me to look good. So I spend sometime to pamper my skin , shopping and check lifestyle blogs for latest fashion updates, cosmetics and makeup tips. I try to involve myself in those things which make me happy and try to ignore and deviate my mind from the those things and people who spoil my mood. I try to be cheerful, active and happy.

5)What is something you are proud of?

Honestly speaking I am proud that I am a cabin crew where I get to connect with lot of people, and see life . I am proud that I have few loving people around me who are there with me in everything I do.
