The driver was kind and helpful. The climate through the journey was awesome. The coffee orchards during the drive were scenic.there are many hotels and dhabas on the way but most of them are too costly. There are many ayurvedic centers which one can visit through their journey to buy spices.

The roads were terrible, full of gutters and it was dangerous. We were going by a cab that broke down in the middle of the forest and the driver did not arrange any other means of travel. It was frustrating to say the least. But the return journey was very comfortable. We were travelling at night so we couldn't see anything on the road. For most part, we slept.
