If you ask us, the simplest way to take in the natural wonders of the Western Ghats is with a good old-fashioned walk. You can also witness various operations at the plantation and might even get a chance to learn how the coffee you drink is harvested, processed and dried.
Kerehaklu has five different walking trails of varying durations and difficulty levels. Each of these self-guided trails is visibly demarcated around the estate.
Kerehaklu is home to myriad animals and birds that you might be able to see and will most likely hear during your stay. You could catch a glimpse of Gaur, Barking Deer or Malabar Giant Squirrels, among others. Bring along your binoculars if you want to get a look at Greater Racket-Tailed Drongos, Scarlet Minivets and other feathered friends.
We have two motion-sensing cameras, often set up overnight to capture the nocturnal movements of the local biodiversity.
If you’re keen on a round of golf, we would highly recommend visiting the 18-hole course at Chikmagalur Golf Club. Located 35 km from the estate, this course is designed to test the best golfers with its tricky greens and thick roughs.
We might even join you for a round! Be sure to call and book a tee-time and caddies before arrival.
The districts of Chikmagalur and Hassan are famous for their ancient temples and temple towns, including Belur, Halebid, Mullayanagiri, Sringeri, among others.
To grab a bite or a beer, you could stop by Café Agape and Take 5 in Chikmagalur Town. MG and IG Roads are nice to walk around to see the bustle of a small town. Local bakeries, coffee houses and dosa joints are definitely worth a visit.
