What you will experience

We will plunge into the rainforest, following a narrow trail through dense undergrowth. This region is rich in flora and fauna, especially birds, so make sure you keep your eyes open and pay attention to your guide. We will continue on the trail as it ascends until we meet a ridge head-on. We will now be poised on the edge of a sheer drop several thousand feet deep - take a minute to breathe in the views around. The vernacular name of the hill to your left translates to "memento" - and this trail derives its name from that. We will rest here a while before heading east along the trail. The next couple of hours, as we make our way along the ridge, offer the best views in Coorg. We will also see several "kadangas" –or trenches dating back several centuries and used in olden times for warfare and defence.

If you are lucky you may get thrilling sightings of elephants and leopards, amongst the many faunal species that have made this area their home.
