"Mutthuga",with its two large halls, is an ideal place to conduct various activities by the corporates like meetings, conferences, get-togethers, brainstorming, team building, workshops and other training programmes or just a stress buster for your top management team.
You can take a walk in 10 areas of the Areca Farm with inter crops like cordamom, banana, vanilla, pepper, coconuts, coffee, mangoes etc. You can even take a long walk amidst paddy fields.
If you are interested in bird watching, you can watch thousands of birds of western ghats in and around our farm. Few of those birds are Indian Moorhen, Purple Moorhen, Bronze-winged Jacana, Red-wattled Lapwing, Black-winged Stilt, Blue Rock Pigeon etc.
You can also witness various farming activities of malnad areas, depending on the season in which you are coming like planting, picking, weeding, harvesting etc of various farm crops.
You can experience the mesmerizing nights of forest areas with deadly silence of the nature or rarest sounds of many birds, animals, insects etc by choosing a walk in the night ranging from 1-2 kms upto 8-10 kms. That is going to be an unimaginable thing in the urban areas and hence becomes an unforgettable experience for you and your family.
This is one of the great activity very few people, specially like us, the ones from major cities can do!! Don't do anything. There is no rule that you should be doing one or the other activities always! You can just spend your day quietly without any activity peacefully being with yourself, introspecting, meditating etc.
Just be with YOURSELF...
