About the resort
Madikeri is a hill station and the vibrant capital of Coorg. Nestling in the Western Ghats, the district is one of the most beautiful ones in the state. It is verdant and filled with nature’s splendor that spans innumerable shades of green. Driving in, the plains gradually give way to mountain ranges and as the road begins to curve upwards, the wide vistas of mountains transport visitors to another world. Surrounding these vistas are valleys, sholas, paddy fields, grasslands, orange orchards, and coffee, pepper and cardamom plantations. And do you know why Madikeri is the best place for a family vacation? It is because amidst all this magnificence flows the life-giving river Cauvery. Most families prefer to visit Coorg between October and May when the climate is perfect for nature’s beauty to bloom!

Places to Visit in Coorg
Madikeri is a perfect destination for a family vacation. Surrounded by nature, Madikeri in Coorg offers many tourist destinations, one can visit with their family. Raja’s Seat is a cliff-edge point facing lush green valleys and hilly expanse where it is believed that the Maharajas used to watch sunsets. On clear days the sunsets are spectacular, but on cloudy days, puffy white clouds playing hide and seek with the mountains is an equally riveting sight. Located just outside Madikeri in the midst of a coffee plantation, it takes a little walk to see Abbey falls, but the sight is dramatic. The water gushing out over rocks and plunging a few hundred feet is viewed from a little bridge where you can sometimes feel the spray carried by strong winds. About 35 km East of Madikeri is Dubare Elephant Camp, which is run by Jungle Lodges and Resorts. Reach early in the morning, cross the river and reach the camp so you can participate in bathing grooming, feeding and then later riding elephants.
Located in the Brahmagiri hills, about a couple of hours from Madikeri, Talacauvery is the birth place of river Cauvery and offers breathtaking views of the mountain ranges. At the foothills is Bhagamandala, a confluence of three rivers considered holy for Hindus, with Bhagandeshwara temple. One of the best managed wildlife sanctuaries in the country, Nagarahole National Park spread over 575 sq km with dense vegetation and wildlife population. The forest is very picturesque and is home to tigers, elephants and gaur apart from leopards, sambar and other mammals, birds and reptiles.
Almost 200 years old, the Omkareshwara temple is a sprawling structure built by King Lingarajendra II. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva but the unique thing is it is built in Mughal style with dome and minarets as well as Gothic elements, something which is found very rarely in a Shiva temple. Just outside Kushalanagar is Bylakuppe, possibly South India’s largest Tibetan settlement. Wander around this area to see spectacular and colourful Tibetan monasteries, savour delicious Tibetan food from little eateries and buy exquisite handicrafts. Located within town, Madikeri fort was originally built by the Kodava kings but re-built by Tipu Sultan.
