... to the urban environment of Bangalore, the air was crisp and clean, nights were as dark as anywhere I've been, and the temperatures went down to the upper 40s. The environment here was a real welcome change to the hustle, congestion, noise, and pollution of the city.
The resort can accommodate about 50 guests. Most are ...
... Hay, another homestay on a coffee plantation, but this time on the edge of Mudumalai Forest. We were picked up by jeep as the road was rough!
We sat watching black faced langur monkeys playing in the garden.

Devi lives in the accommodation block below me, and she invited me to go for a walk up the road and treated me to a cup of tea and biscuits. The tea was interesting: it came ready-made with sugar and a pungent milk that made our goats milk seem ...
... Manjoor but in the chilly and now incessant rain, it all looked miserable. Onward to Avalanche it was, as per the original itinerary - naturally only after a piping hot cup of tea and some yummy puffs and cake at the justly famous Manjoor bakery!

... few hours was like a game of chicken on the roads, but we started the ascent to Ooty which is about 2200 meters above sea level, so it was nice to see the views and some tea plantations as we got higher.

The place is rustic & serene with Nilgiris Mountain in its backdrop. It was decent place with clean rooms n toilets and some activities. Don't expect a luxurious resort, this place is meant for true jungle experience. We stayed in Family cottage, which had 2 double beds and 2 toilets. The room was clean. The lunch was ok, with hot chapathi, rice, sambar, some veg curry, chicken gravy but no desert. They have a TT table, Badminton court, volleyball court, which can be used for cricket as well. At dinner, we had special menu as requested, since we were the only guests there. It was delicious and wholesome unlike lunch and we did eat really well that night. All in all, a true jungle experience here at Forest Hills. Great location, good food, wonderful service, clean rooms in a good managers hand. This place is indeed a nature lovers paradise. But i have to warn you, this isn't for fainthearted.
