The tempting aroma of fresh coffee that excites your nostrils as soon as you land in Coorg is unmissable. The misty hills and the orange orchards make Coorg one of the most sought after tourist destinations in South India. As it is easily accessible, this beautiful hill station is often visited by Keralites. The Honey Valley and the Nilakandi waterfalls are two destinations that shouldn’t be missed if you are visiting Coorg.

Honey Valley is located near the enchanting countryside of Kabinkadu which is 7 kilometres away form Kakkabe, 27 kilometres from Virajpet and 48 kilometres from Madikkeri. Interestingly, this place got the name from a luxury resort ‘Honey Valley’ owned by Suresh Chengappa. The resort that sprawls lavishly in 75 acres has coffee plantations, cardamom and pepper orchards too. You could take a stroll through the plantation to reach the Nilakandi waterfalls.

The trekking to the waterfalls begins near a dried-up pond which is barely a kilometre away from the resort. The waterfall is around four kilometres from here.

It is a magical experience watching the waterfall cascading down the rocks from fifty feet above. Hundreds of visitors reach here everyday to enjoy its beauty and take a dip in the soothing waters. Visitors are allowed to trek to the waterfall from 6 am to 5 pm. The entry is free.
