Votecad Nature camp : If you want to feel the nature really surrounded by Rain forest, this is the place. a nutshell this place has- coffee gardens, tea garden, river rafting, trek to brahmagiri, camping, irrupu falls. you can easily reach their by public transportation. Food is really awesome including breakfast, lunch, dinner. Barbeque and Coorg wine is served by the Votecad nature camp. overall I would say that if you are planning for a short trip in South Coorg, this place is perfect.

gather the beans....collect memories and cherish your experience as one soaks into the realm of nature in Kushi's coffee plantation as well as farmhouse . Her hospitality and engrossing talks was an education with unlimited fun . The journey starts when you are taken around the coffee plantation and explained the processes to invading her beautiful farmhouse where one can play around and feed her ducks, cows and other pets. Then one gets a chance to taste yummy passion fruit juice from her farm till the final ride back to the starting point on her muscular mahindra jeep. thanks kushi for making it all such a wonderful and adventurous experience.

We had an awesome experience in Mandaa reasonable rate, guys dont miss the chance if you are with your friends. Yea it just took around 700Rs each for the amazing jeep ride, and we had so much fun. At times we rested at some point just to capture the beauty of the place, but the real elegance lies in sunset time.

Coorg is just surprising every time I visit. It has everything from leisure to fun, laid back to adventurous. The coffee plantation thing in Coorg is by far the best thing that I have ever had. The smell of coffee beans, the long walks, and the beautiful nature: it was just the best. I am so in love with Coorg. The trip was well organized and I totally love this. It was not that costly too. Also, if one gets an estate or plantation stay too, it’s like the best laid back weekend in the hands of nature.
