Sequestered in the splendid natural beauty of South India’s legendary Coorg or Kodagu region, Madikeri is a great base for exploring this wondrous countryside of coffee estates, picturesque forested trails and aromatic breezes. Though its natural beauty is much celebrated, the Kodagu region is imbued with a rich history, having come under the sway of the Chola, Ganga, Kadamba and Hoysala empires…and that’s just for starters.
Madikeri Nature trail takes you away from the city life and into the quiet countryside. Bordered by stunning hills on all sides, this is a haven for every nature lover looking to escape the toil and stress of city life. It’s a charming place to be with quaint shops selling delicious filter coffee, harvested straight from the coffee plantations around.

What you will experience
This e-bike trail curves along these mountains and opens up grand vistas to feast our city-jaded eyes. Our experiences are all about exploring unseen, offbeat routes to dive into deeper into the many layers of the places that we visit. We will learn about different coffee brews that are nearly as old as Madikeri and just as warm as the locals. We will thrill to the joy and wonder effortless of riding, discover unbelievable scenic splendour and travel far beyond just the most popular places in Coorg.
Our ride takes us through a dense forest and coffee estate towards the Kootu Hole Dam, with its beautiful surrounds of lush verdure and sounds of water gushing; it’s quite the perfect spot and not many are there who are familiar with this secret haven.
During our explorations of the Backwater View, tea, and coffee plantations, we also ride on to the true and unseen side of Madikeri. Just a 5-minute walk will lead us to Galibeedu Surprise Point, a fantastic vantage point to enjoy the magical expanse of the Coorg countryside and its many hidden spots which even locals don’t know of. Reward yourself with a view of the Chappanda Kere, where you’ll find the names of the plant by its fragrance, size and shape. Then refuel yourself with a healthy snack and refreshing drink.
