One of the best place that I found in Madikeri, also must try Ice Tea at Buddha Cafe near temple's parking.

Another place for which coorg is known for and a must visit place.

Also just for fun, ask the caretakers to tell names of elephants. They do got quite good names. You'll get to feed elephants and watch them have bath.

His name is Manoranjan!

Next day we had ample amount of time to reach Bangalore airport, so we took a detour from Mysore Palace.
