"Best place in Coorg, must visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
If you want to experience nature in its virgin, untouched and enormous best, this is the place to visit. Only jeep can ferry you to this spot which surprisingly isn't too far from Madikeri. One of the most popular tourist destination at Coorg famous for its Ooty like climate.

Don't miss to witness the sunrise here. A small walk to the top of its highest peak will blow you away, literally. Extremely windy even in December, don't forget to carry your jackets, pullovers and warmers. If you are the photographer type, you would be super busy with so much to capture. Landscape, valleys, sunrise, you will be spoilt for choice.

"High and Green"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
A little far from Madikeri, this place is the ultimate attraction Coorg has to offer. Although we were not allowed to take our Tavera to the spot as the terrain can only be endured by high power jeeps according to localites. We felt it was just a gimmick so we rented a jeep and payed them so money but soon after reaching the vast open meadows we totally forgot about it and couldn't help wake up the child inside us. It was so fun running up and down the hills and appreciating the green carpet of trees from the peak.

"Breath taking views"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Just another scenic beauty to add awesomeness to Coorg. Jeep drivers may ask you to take jeep far behind the place touting bad roads ask you to shell 2000 bucks but one reach till the entrance gate and then also you can walk to the hill to enjoy the scenery on 3 to 4 kms. You would find many hills nearby and go up there. Reach early to explore the high hills but drive carefully.

"One of the best viewpoints in Coorg"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
As mentioned in the subject Mandalpatti is one of the best viewpoints in Coorg. Its 15 kms from the main city and you cannot take your regular vehicles to the spot. You require a Jeep or Scorpio or Bolero to visit the spot which has higher ground clearance. You will experience an amazing adventure ride. There is an entrance fees of 50 to 100 Rs per person. If you don't have a higher ground clearance vehicle then you can hire a jeep which will be available on the way to Mandalpatti. This place is on the way to Abbey Falls itself.

"Cycling to this place is a nice adventure"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 23, 2015
Had been here recently during the monsoons. Brilliant place. Road conditions the last 3-4 kms is just pathetic. But with a mountain bike its just a nice challenge. The climb from Madikeri to this place is also literally breathtaking! Overall a must see place in Coorg!

"Excellent place to visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 18, 2015
This is an excellent place to visit. We will go towards clouds and we will spent time there. Beautiful sceneries, so much to see and enjoy. Don't opt this place in August, because of fog. But we enjoyed a lot even in the fog. It was a different experience for us. We can feel the breeze in clouds/fog. If you want to see the scenery, better to opt in good season.

"Mandalpatti for rejuvenation"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 2, 2015
If going to Coorg than one must go to Mandalpatti, awesome place. One feels completely rejuvenated at Mandalpatti. The Scotland of India is completely fascinating from Mandalpatti. Do visit either very early morning for the sunrise which again is a majestic experience or during sunset. Not advisable at night because the road to Mandalpatti is not proper, otherwise no problem. Spend some time at Mandalpatti and Fatigue and tiredness after days play just goes away.

"Heaven on Earth!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 17, 2015
Talking about adventures, this is a must visit place! The location will take your breath away. Of course for the photo/selfie lovers, you can spend an entire day clicking photos. The road that takes you here is not a road at all! It's an insanely laid out path only for the terrain like vehicles such as jeeps or the solid SUVs. Don't even dare to drive your LUVs or the smaller ones, unless you want to take it back to the garage!

"Good view point but bad roads"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jul 4, 2015
The view point is ultimate here but the roads are very much damaged and can be called worst road in Madikeri. Jeeps can be hired to visit this place, two wheelers should be very skilled and careful to ride in this road.
