Madikeri in Coorg is a must visit

View from Raja's seat
Madikeri is just around two hours drive from Ashish Estate. Even though, just like most of the popular tourist spots, it is crowded with tourists in the peak season, it is worth visiting because of its scenic beauty.

And if crowds don't bother you then Madikeri is worth visiting during Dussehra.The festival here is almost as popular as the Dussehra festival of Mysore.

Some of the popular spots in Madikeri that  can be done in couple of days are:-

Raja's seat: This used to be a favourite spot of the king. The view from here is absolutely out of the world!

Abbi falls: This is a popular destination in Madikeri.

The other places that are close by are,  Talakaveri  (The origin of river Kaveri) and Bhagamandala (this sacred place is situated at the confluence of River Kaveri and Kannike, and the mythical river Sujyoti)

There are several other places that you can visit while in Madikeri.You will need at least 2 days to cover most of the sight seeing.
