Amazing place. You just wanna explore more and more of this. Can't get enough...and you can't leave the place. Early morning/late evenings are recommended for sightings
This place is for the ones who love trekking, but don't have much time for it. There are trekking spots in different places there The trails are clear. Sunset and sunrises are ultimate here . Recently visited during the day but 4years ago I had visited during the sunset time and it was ultimate that time , we feel like we are above the clouds. Not so steep but gravels makes it difficult in slopes . Too many leeches during monsoon. Best place for beginners. We will get some experience of life here . Highest peak in Kodagu . I suggest you to wear a good trekking shoes , some fruits , water and glucose during your trek
