MONSOON (JUN - AUG) - Happening NOW!

You have seen nothing if you not seen the rains in Malnad. After all, the name says it all. Whether it drizzles or rains heavily, while some of our regular activities may be curtailed depending upon the degree of rainfall, let it not dissuade you from venturing out and savoring every moment.

The monsoon is regular as clockwork in this part of the woods. But there is a special beauty in the relentless pouring rain to the discerning visitor. To the romantic it's a special treat, to be safely cocooned in the estate bungalow with the pouring rain outside, a cup of hot steaming coffee in your hands and your beloved ones by your side!

To the adventurous visitor, nature offers a special treat with thunderous waterfalls and rafting, which can be arranged - about an hour's drive from the estate.

SPRING / WINTER (SEP- FEB) - It's after the monsoons have subsided in mid September that we see nature at her best display.

 

All the surrounding countryside
are a majestic sight to behold: the
mountains are clad in a green mantle, the
streams are crystal clear and ripe with fish, small rivulets course through acres of paddy fields and the forests are ablaze with most trees putting forth new shoots.

Come December and most the crops gradually ripen and the harvesting season begins. In the plantations the coffee berries are turning cherry red ,the paddy fields are a sea of shimmering gold ,and the areca trees are pregnant with orange bunches of nuts. The plantations are fragrant with the warm smell of pepper ripening, mingled with the sweet smell of heavily laden orange trees . There is music in the air with the local women singing as they harvest the paddy with bent sickles. There are a lot festivals celebrating the harvest and you may lucky to witness some of them.

SUMMER (MAR- MAY) - Each season has its own charm and summer is a great time to trek and explore the estate and its environs. Although the temperatures do not soar to extremes itis pleasant enough to allow one to sit out in the verandah of the estate bungalow after a day's trek and enjoy a sundowner (the enduring legacy of the British planter) while watching a night sky bedecked with a million stars and hear the chirping of myriad insects. Late summer if one is lucky you can catch the thundershowers in the month of April and May. The hills of coffee plants are in full bloom and resemble snow clad mountains and the fragrant with the aroma of the flowers and the drone of innumerable bees.
