Our homestay was one of the best things about our trip to Kotagiri. We were put up at Fuschia on Kerben Road. To reach the place, one must take a bus (limited service) or hire a Jeep to an abandoned tea factory at the end of Kerben Road. From there, one must walk down tea gardens to reach Fuschia (named after the vibrant and graceful flower that grows on bounty at the homestay).
The rooms were comfortable, the washrooms neat and clean, the staff friendly, and the food wholesome and delicious. But that's the bare minimum. Fuschia bowls you over with its sheer beauty. It is such a romantic little place to stay, tucked away in the hills, away from all the bustle.
One can hear the gurgle of a stream cascade close by, the endless twitter of birds, the rustle of wind through the trees. It was a treat to one's eyes and ears.
Most of our trip was spent in and around the homestay itself.
