Perfect for a getaway-Kakkabe

The place that I have decided to go and rejuvenate and most of all enjoy the country side as well as the village food. Booked in a home stay and was very well taken care off. As far as the food is concerned, awesome village food. Worth the money. Too time off to visit nearby places e.g. Abbey Falls, Raja' s Seat, Dubare Elephant Camp. Arranged for a bonfire and warmed myself the whole night . To be frank, winter is the best season to visit but the other seasons are good except the falls may run dry during the summer and fill again during the monsoon.

Kakkabe is a trekker’s pleasure to those people seeking for serenity, as there a number of treks small and medium and of varying grades that is apt for most visitors. The well laid trekking trails in Thadiandamol is challenging and enjoyable. Its windy peak offers unhindered views of impressive mountain ranges and valleys of Coorg and beyond. Neatly stacked layers of hills align one behind the other, extending to the horizon and gently merging into the blue sky.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: It is really a thrilling experience to trek through these stunning and appealing forests of Kakkabe. Not to be missed: Trekking to Thadiandamol peak and visiting the ruined structures of Nalakkanad palace and ends at the Iguthappa peak.

Activities & things to do: Trecking to Thadiandamol peak and visiting the ruined structures of Nalakkanad palace and ends at the Iguthappa peak.
