Weekend Getaways from Thattekad  

Best time to visit - January,September,October,November,December
About 100kms west of Mysore, the hilly hamlet of Kodagu (formerly known as Coorg) is located in the evergreen highlands of the Western Ghats. This charming district beckons tourists with its spice gardens, cardamom forests and a sea of coffee plantations. Travel to Coorg for the wide array of adventure activities. Raft through the white rapids of the Barapole river, trek across the grasslands of the Kopatty-Kalugundi trail or quad biking through the Chevalara falls. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, fishing at the Valnoor and Bheemeshwari fishing camps or simply wandering through coffee plantations are some of the most sought after things to do in Coorg. The 17th century Madikeri Fort where the revered Tipu Sultan once held court, and the Omkareshwar temple are among the most famous attractions of the district’s headquarters in Madikeri. While you are here, also visit Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, the largest Tibetan settlement of south India. Go here for a pleasant evening intermittent with monastic hymns, prayer bells and a motley of Tibetan handicrafts.

About Thattekad

Day 3: We start the day with a 90 minute shuttle bus ride to reach the scenic stretch along the canal route to Thattekad. The first ride begins amongst the beautiful enclosures of lush green landscape, with the chirpy birdlife giving you company, as you pedal along the canal. And this smooth road soon leads to our next destination - The Hornbill Camp. Providing your day's stay with the authenticity of an eco-adventure experience, this spot is an ideal comfort zone amidst the wilderness of Thattekad. Those of you who are bird lovers will enjoy the sight of a variety of species of birds, trailing alongside the Periyar River. You can even choose to be a little more extravagant and pamper yourself in the luxury of the Swiss Camps. Distance cycled: 40 kms / 25 miles
