Coorg - kakkabe - Home Stay

Kakkabe is 250km from bangalore, takes 6-7 hours.

Route - Mysore Road --> Srirangapatna soon after Srirangapatna take a left and take Hunsur Road --> Virajpet --> There you go Kakkabe.

Well well a single cottage in the middle of the forest on the hills, a wonder full view where you can almost feel the clouds pass by, fire camp in the night along with barbeque's and very comfortable camps outside the cottage where you can sleep, can you imagine that its just amazing, that was my first experience of coorg home stay.

Thadiyendamol in Kakkabe is the highest peak in coorg, its one of the well known treking places, there are lot of places around where you can trek for days, so as expected we where out there to trek, very first we went to Kakkabe where we had already booked the accommodation, that guy got his jeep and took us to the cottage which is in the middle of the hill, the cottage was not great, its just a home stay so don't expect anything special, its just like one of the houses in villages, you get better one to, but on top of the hills you get only these, who cares the view from there was so amazing with cool breeze blowing, it took some time for absorb everything.

One of the problem everyone faces when they go to coorg is the food, but luckily this guy served us comapratively good food, not the best but not bad to, we had our breakfast and started planning abt how to go abt trekking, one of the guy from cottage lead the way to Thadiyendamol, just 10mins from start which looked like 30mins for us, the guy showed us where we are actually going, the very first though that came to us was, OK lets go back no trekking :-) It was a long hard trek after some time the path was very much flat and no trees around, now that's boring isn't it, we tried some alternative path but nothing seemed to work, we had to get back to the normal route, we where tired majorly due to hot sun :-)..

we did make it at the end and it was a great feeling, well now there is a big task we need to go back to the cottage, we expected it to be tiring but it was fun, we lost the route i don't know where we went but after asking some locals out there we somehow made it, took well deserving rest and woke up in the evening and we knew its going to be fun in the night, with fire camp, barbeque's and the camps outside the cottage it was lot of fun.

Don't miss the early morning view, and the sunset in the evening they are the best part, If you are going in winter checkout for leaches they are there everywhere :-)

will upload the photos soon, you will get a better idea.

Great article. Thats a nice set of destinations you have rounded up.
Bangalore’s location does afford it the luxury of being a short drive away from some good weekend breaks. Here a couple more..

BR Hills: About 165 Kms from Bangalore has a couple of new resorts and homestays that have sprung up albeit on the slightly more expensive side.

Masinagudi:
About 240 kms from Bangalore, is a great location for spotting some big cats or just relaxing over the weekend.

Do check these out as well.
