Visitor profile –
This place is an ideal getaway for those who are seeking to get away from the big bad city and spend some time in quietude and calm.
It is also a great place for those families who would want their children to experience rural life and climb a tree or two or play with the cows and dogs or feel the excitement of the peafowl’s call … the thrill of the shrill, as I want to call it ????
The food is pure veg and no alcohol is also allowed on the premises.
Best time to visit –
While anytime would be a good time to visit, March, April and May could get a bit warm.
End of May brings the mango harvest and would be a really fun experience.
June to September is monsoon time and would be quite delightful to experience.
Winter and spring of course are everyone’s favorite times.
Getting to Mango Mulch –
The best way to get there from Bangalore or Mysore, would be by one’s own vehicle or cab.
Bangalore – is 135 km away and is a 2 to 3.5 hour drive depending on traffic and which locality you are leaving from. One would go via South Bangalore and choose to use the Mysore road or the Kanakapura road route.
Bangalore Airport is 175 km away and one can book a cab from there.
Maddur bus stand/railway station is 55 km away and can be accessed in an hour’s drive (AC Volvo buses/trains from Bangalore to Maddur take about 1.5 hours).
Mysore Railway station/Bus stand – is 55 km away and will also take an hour by road.
For those who would use public transport, there are a couple of direct buses from Bangalore to Malavalli, a town that is 28 km away. The buses though, are not the air conditioned, express ones and they will take around 3 hours to get to Malavalli, after which one has to find local transport like a local bus or cab or auto.
Buses from Malavalli are available to the nearest town of Talakadu, 5 km from the farm from where one will again have to use Autorickshaws or cabs to get to the farm.
So like I said, cabs or own vehicles are the least stressful way.
