Description


Honey Valley is situated at the top of a steep track of 3 Kms, approximately forty-five minutes by foot (or 20 minutes by jeep) from the nearest main road. One Trip per Jeep will cost you Rs.125. The closest town to Honey Valley is Kakkabe, situated between Madikeri (also known as Mercara - the regional capital of Kodagu) and Virajpet. The Honey Valley Estate is situated in the Western Ghats in the heart of Kodagu (Coorg), about 250 kilometers from Bangalore, India. Kodagu is the Scotland of India, with misty green slopes and lush forest, and offers a beautiful location for walking, birdwatching or simply rel- axing. Most of Kodagu is between 1,000 and 1,400 meters above sea level, which makes its climate pleasantly cool. Winding roads, often bordered by flowering shrubs and neat hedges, link the scattered hamlets. The Honey Valley Estate is situated in a remote part of Kodagu, near the tallest peak in the region, Thadiyandamole. It is possible to reach the 1,750 meter peak by foot in three and a half hours from Honey Valley. Until 1994, the estate was the largest producer of honey in India (approximately 6.5 tonnes per year), but disappearance of the native bees stopped production.The estate now produces coffee, cardamom and pepper, which are all grown as ecologically as possible.The estate also has a small nursery of anthuriums. Honey Valley is virtually self-sufficient in many respects, including electricity which is generated by water power. Your hosts at Honey Valley are the husband and wife owners of the estate, Suresh and Susheela Chengappa and their Daughter Savitha. They are very knowledgeable about local flora and fauna. Susheela and family prepare traditional food, most of which is home-grown. We have a fixed menu. Breakfast - Veg : Lunch/Dinner - Veg : How to Get Here?
