Mandalpatti - the heart of Coorg

Well i would say that this is the best destination in the entire Coorg.The gypsy car ride that took us from pickup point to mandalpatti peak was breath taking with high speed sharp turns making our ride full of thrills.Colors of sunrays during sunset were magnificient with sprinklers of rain fall in sky. At last i would like to conclude my review by saying that U must go there.

Don't ever miss to visit mandalpatti

Hi guys, If you are planning to visit madikeri list down the mandalpatti has your first priority, though the Jeep fare is 1500rs. For 35kms up and down, you will feel it's worth after visiting this place, you may think the Jeep fare is quite high but they will charge it for the risk they are taking to reach the place and there tires won't last for a week, don't ever think of reaching this place by your own vehicle I bet you vehicles will breakdown on the way, I felt accomplishing a mission after seeing the gorgeous sceneric beauty of the place most of the time you will be in the clouds. "Happy journey folks".

Trail walk in Coorg

This place was so beautiful, i wish i could stay there forever. Away from the chaos of the city, soaking calming vibes, cool breeze touching your soul ; if you have ever felt or are well aware with the above words, this is one of the best place to be in. The minute you will start walking in this narrow lane of wilderness you will wish for this road to never end and you keep walking till your last breathe.

You can go but not so good

you can go there by hiring jeeps ... after reaching mandalpatti they will charge you 25 rs only than they allow you to trek and go to the top .. it takes only 5-10 mints to reach on the top not so high and after reaching on the top there is one stand from where you can see mandalpatti hills ... which gives very good view of mandalpatti ... if you want to save 25 rs there is another hill next to that you can trek there same hight same view of mandalpatti only that stand is missing .

Very bad, don't go

Everything is negative. Your vehicle is not allowed, Compulsory have to hire local vehicle. No sharing of vehicle cost. Distance is around 15 - 16 kms. Very rough roads. After certain distance, we will be wondering where is the road? Entire muddy and big boulder road. After all these pains when you reach, you have to pay Rs 25/- per head for climbing the mountain. And after climbing the mountain, you are very much upset and angry on yourself for wasting all money, time and energy with body ache nothing is there to be seen. The worst part is there is nothing, not even water for drinking.

Off road adventure

Mandalpatti is 14 kms far from kushalnagar, madikkeri. This place is a view point which en route is completely a treacherous off road trail. advisable to use local jeeps which is minimal in cost too.Bikers can climb up to the top on their own risk. only fee collected there is for your vehicles Rs 10 for 2 wheelers and 20/30 Rs for 4wheelers . climb at the day time to enjoy the scenic beauty from the top of the view point..
