It is these coffee estates that attract most tourists to Coorg, the tropical hotspot in the Western Ghats of Karnataka in India. And it is these coffee estates that offer a mystical aura during the monsoons.
The misty surroundings, the slight nip in the air, the coffee estates, the spice plantations, the colourful plants and flowers and the dense tropical trees all around make you want to spend your holiday in this tropical paradise with a cuppa of hot steaming coffee in your hands.
In this instance, I had recently visited Honey Valley Estate, a 56 acre homestay located in the Kakkabe side of Coorg. There was a consistent drizzle during my stay here, but that is the fun of visiting such tropical places in the monsoons.
A relaxing walk through these coffee estates can be quite interesting. In fact, every time I go on such walks, I feel I am taking a botany class.
