Any day in the “Scotland of India- Coorg” is better than a normal day in the city. If you are looking for a getaway that yells beauty, serenity and one of a kind experience then look no more.
Tadiandamol stands at a height of 5700ft, located at a distance of 8 km from the town of Kakkabe and approximately 35 km from Madikeri. It is the highest peak in Coorg and is situated in the south-eastern part of Coorg.
We reach Coorg at dawn, the fresh aroma of coffee estates that span as far as your eyes can possibly see offer us a warm welcome. After a quick breakfast, we start at Nalakanad Palace. the trek route has numerous visual treats for you guys in the store. From seeing pretty butterflies to waterfalls that are of just the right size to enjoy, to jaw-dropping views of the valley. Tadiandamol is a MUST for everybody who chooses NATURE over Netflix.
After about 4kms of the walk, we reach BIG ROCK that will serve as a point of rest before we continue towards the peak. The path then tests you with a gradual increase in the inclination, this where you come across the famous shola jungle.
But nature has a trick up her sleeve, we come up to a false peak which deceives many people who end up thinking that this is the peak. The trail thereafter becomes narrow and steep, which makes even a distance of just 300m seem like a lot!
The top is usually covered in low, moving clouds. After spending ample time and enjoying everything that the trek has to offer we have our packed lunch and enjoy the panoramic views, we begin our descent at a slow comfortable pace back to the base.
A short drive later we are back at our homestay for tea and snacks, followed by dinner and a blissful night’s rest. Next morning we wake up by 7 AM to freshen up and have breakfast, following which we will continue to the Golden Temple. We begin for Bangalore a little before noon and are likely to reach here by about 9 PM in the evening.
Overall, Tadiandamol offers enchanting views while at the same time not demanding too much physically (in comparison to treks such as Kumara Parvatha, Mullayanagiri/Bababudangiri, etc.), which makes it the perfect initiation trek for anyone looking to take up trekking seriously.
