Experience nature like never before and the hospitality of the ever-welcoming Club Mahindra Resort; here are the top five things for you to do during your stay here.
Breakfast Overlooking Mother Nature:
When was the last time you experienced something so magical that you’ll cherish for a long time? A breakfast overlooking lush green forests, foggy mountain tops and sipping Darjeeling’s finest tea, yeah, that’s as special as it gets.
Don’t you eat your daily breakfast in a hurry, worrying about what lies ahead during a busy day? Well, you can forget all that. Enjoy long stress-free breakfasts and sip awesome tea as you have the best seat in the house with a million dollar view.
An Elephant Ride to Remember:
One of the best ways to explore the surrounding areas and witness the amazing scenery from the finest vantage point is on an elephant ride. Take a guided tour of the forest around the resort and soak in the aura of the lush-green forest. This is one experience that you and your kids are never going to forget!
Admit it; this is one of the biggest reasons for you to visit this amazing resort. Because Club Mahindra’s resort is located in the heart of nature, it gives you an opportunity to visit the incredibly beautiful area surrounding the Virajpet resort. The Abbey and Irupu waterfalls are two places you have to visit. Also on your must-see list is a view of the Western Ghats from one of the highest points.
Visit Coorg’s amazing Landmarks:
Coorg has a lot of history going back to the British Raj. Two of the most famous landmarks are the Buddhist Monastery and the Raja’s Seat.
Bailkuppe near Kushalnagar is one of the largest Tibetan settlements in south India. Most notable among them are the large educational monastic institution Sera, the smaller Tashilunpo monastery and Namdroling monastery .The Mahayana Buddhist University is at Sera. There are nearly 7,000+ monks and nuns. The gold-coated Buddhist statues in the monastery are imposing and unique, reflecting the rich cultural heritage of the Tibetans.
Raja’s Seat is a garden of flowers and foundations. It’s a place where generations of Kings’ & Queens witnessed the setting sun – a spectacular sight indeed. This is one of those places that you cannot afford to miss.
Coffee Plantations – A Coorg Speciality:
No visit to Coorg is complete without visiting the legendary coffee plantations. After all, Coorg is called the ‘Coffee Cup of India.’ With the monsoon, the aroma of Coorg’s signature coffee fills the air and it’s no surprise that this is the beverage of choice for locals throughout the year. While you’re here, do try the ‘Coffea robusta’ variety – a Coorg signature, it’s nothing like the coffee you’re used to having in the cities.
In addition to coffee, pepper also grows here and pepper vines wrap around trees like duty-bound custodians creating an interesting sight.
