On the way back from Bhadra we finally made our way 78 kms ahead to Chikmagalur. While you come down the valleys through the hairpin bends you can also stop at The Estate Cafe (around 15 kms from Bhadra) that you are least likely to expect but will provide you with a perfect coffee and light snacks across a beautiful valley view and engagements like pool table, camping etc as per your time, mood and money. After a coffee break, we continued the journey towards our next destination Chikmagalur, the land of coffee.Being as famous as it is, Chikmagalur abides places to stay from luxury camping sites, hotels and resorts to highly reasonable lodges in the town market area. But you must ensure that you are booked in advance as during holidays Chikmagalur is mostly all taken. We had to settle for a lodge when we reached the lit streets of this town and finally our day one ended. Tired, we had some meal from a hotel and almost slept as another long day was waiting for us.Next morning we advanced to the famous trek of the area, Mullayanagiri. While it is not the only option, it is the highest peak in Karnataka, standing at 1,930 metres. You can either climb to the top or settle at one of the stone rests that lie all along the way to allow the stunning view seep in as a cool breeze embraces you.
