Once you make it all the 5735 feet to the top, you are going to be rewarded by the company of nature which will include flowers, snails, trees, streams, and butterflies.

Day 1 – Trek to Tadiandamol
Since you are far away from the hustle bustle of the city now, it is time to forget all the worries that you stress about every day and get ready for the two most peaceful days of your life.Your entire group will reach the homestay early on in the day and after arrival, will take part in a wonderful breakfast and freshening up session.
The trek will start from the base village of Kakkabe which hosts the starting point of the trek that is Nalakand Palace. This starting point is 4 km away from the main road and has a curvy and slightly tricky road to navigate. Once the road to the actual trail begins, it is fairly easy to navigate and follow, even for beginners. On the road up, you will come across a waterfall and a number of streams that will be a feast for your eyes!The animals that will pass you by on this trail will range from tiny butterflies to snails. These animals will be surrounded by the fresh greenness of the surrounding forests and the calm blue of the sky.
During the journey, you will come across the Big Rock which is where you can enjoy your meal as well as take a lot of pictures of each other! Make the most of this time as it has some of the most beautiful panoramic views you have seen in your entire life.
The steep ascent up to False Point might make you feel a little out of breath but it will be totally worth it when you see the gorgeous view of the forest cover from the point. Following this point, the trail will get narrow and steeper but it will be well compensated by the beautiful blowing flowers you will see on either side.
You will start the descent back to the base camp and will finish the trek by 6 in the evening. That in no way means that the fun has ended, in fact, it has just begun. You will be provided with the lovely traditional Coorg meals which can be eaten alongside the big bonfire.
Day 2 – Dubbare Elephant Camp and Namdroling Monastery
Dubare Elephant reserve is just a few hours from Coorg, and it’s ‘the place’ for elephant lovers. Not only do you get to see the huge animals closely, but you can also play around while they take a cozy shower! This is another place for water sports, and famous for white water rafting. The river runs through the dense forest, and as your raft floats on the swift-flowing Kaveri, you can enjoy the natural surroundings while soaking up the sun.
From Dubbare, we shall head out to the Namdroling Monastery in Kushalnagar. Considered as one of the largest Buddhist centers dedicated for the study, practice, and preservation of Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhism, this place is totally worth a visit. With 300 residing monks within the premises, you might just get lucky to attend one of their prayer sessions, which is beyond mystical.
