The homestays are on cheaper side, the food in here is also not much expensive travelling can cost much since the places are not nearby it takes hours n hours of driving but still the journey will be awesome as usual due to nature around you.

So all in all for 2 of us this trip cost cam around 50000 INR. You should have ample time in your hand to explore all the places. We covered above places in 5 days & enjoyed immensely.

Do visit coorg its one of the best hill station in India & yes it is truely Scotland of India. Prefer Homestays over hotels. We had amazing host in The Manasarovar when you stay in homestay you get healthy homemade food you can even learn things from the host.

Thank You,
