Private Mercara Coorg Coffee and Spice Estate Tour

62 reviews
Mercara Gold Estate is a beautiful 12-acre estate located 8 KM from Madikeri. Whilst coffee was growing here since the 1960s we acquired it in 1998 and began a process of transformation by organising it into a well laid out farm with a wide array coffee, spices and fruit trees. Our vision was to develop Mercara Gold Estate into a fully-integrated unit, we began processing and roasting our coffees on the estate. We follow all time-tested processes with passion to produce our own range of boutique style coffee and well-balanced blends.

Even in February, there was a distinct stream of water falling. The crowd was thin. The waterfall being in the midst of the Brahmagiri Forest Range (which is also a wildlife sanctuary) keeps the surrounding pristine. At the gate, before you ascend, you need to pay entry fees for the waterfall area as well as the sanctuary (Rs. 25 + Rs. 25). There are a few eateries near the gate; the sugarcane juice stall is a hit. The paid toilet is clean.

Access: The initial 30% of the distance is concrete footpath, but the rest is a combination of steps and unpaved footpath and its moderately steep. Its kind of a multi-tiered waterfall (3 to be precise). The top most tier has provision for taking a bath. Crowd: We went there in mid feb and there was not much crowd (barely 10-15 people), that's exactly how I prefer Waterflow: Waterflow was good, I have not seen the full flow, but I would say good enough !! The water is pristine clear and super cold even during noon time in feb. I believe bathing is allowed since there a proper platform right up the top most tier of the waterfall. Please do note that there is no good restaurant to eat in and around the waterfall, so pack some food. There was a small shack selling maggie/pulav/fried rice kind of stuff, we did try but worth packing some food.

On 31st Oct , 2019 we left The Tamara Coorg at 0930 and reached Iruppu Falls a picturesque waterfall cascading along the Brahmagiri Mountain Range , 75 Km away at 1130 . From the entrance , I trekked a mild path about a Km and reached a walk bridge . After crossing it , I climbed steps to reach the platform . The roaring , spectacular falls was in full flow . There was a half a Km uphill walk along the stream to reach the first fall of Iruppu . The path was little slippery due to recent thunderstorm and covered with thick jungle on both sides . It is a captivating experience for nature lovers as well as photographers, for the scenery offers many picture-perfect frames. I climbed up the steep slope very carefully to reach the second tier of the mesmerizing falls There were changing rooms near the falls which was highly appreciable . It is home to many Oakleaf butterflies and endangered butterfly species named Malabar blue Bandit . Timings : 0600 – 1800 Entry fee : Rs 50 The Iruppu Falls is open from 6:00 AM - 6:00 PM every day of the week.

The drive to this place itself is awesome takes you through misty Mountains and lush coffee plantations, Literally this place is situated in the lap of mother nature. Once you reach the parking you have to pay entry charges towards the waterfall, the walk/hike takes approx 20-30minutes one way. But the walk is quite refreshing and worth it Evan if you don't workout daily , the hike cab be achieved . The air is super fresh and the walk o through a forest and wildlife zone . Be careful and don't go off roading into the forest as there are lots of king Cobras and animals in the vicinity. Very Instagram worth falls Visited in December hence water force was less, so we could take dips in the water. Also they have provisions of changing rooms separately for women and men :) .

A couple of minutes driver from Nagarahole forest... A couple of minutes of walking from Parking place... And you land up in HEAVEN. Treat for eyes as this place is located amidst lush green vegetation. The pain of walking and climbing stairs are gone which you reach the peak point of this falls. CAUTION: On the top of the falls it is bit slippery.
