Want to trade the jazz and glitz of 5-star resorts for a simple homestay that beckons with home-cooked food and nature aplenty? Then head to Honey Valley in Coorg, a place cocooned in tranquillity and perched 4,250 ft. atop a mountain.
The homestay run by a Kodava family is the base camp for Mt. Tadianadamol, the highest peak in Coorg, and is surrounded by lush coffee plantations and luxuriant rainforests, with a gushing waterfall that comes alive during monsoons. Home to over 50 different varieties of birds and butterflies and a rich range of flora, the homestay is simple, basic, cosy and perfect for a weekend getaway to recharge your batteries.
