You think of a holiday, a short one, a break from a busy city like Bangalore, and a hill station seems ideal – it’s quiet, it’s green, the air is clean, you can hear yourself – it’s basically everything the city will never be. However, one doesn’t always know where in these hill stations you really need to go to get the best the place has to offer. So, we did our little research and asked around a bit, and found ourselves a “gold spot” (because of how the place illuminates when the sun’s rays fall upon it) – Fairy Glen, the most charming bed and breakfast in Coonoor.
