Mandalpatti, crowned at a height of 1600m, is situated at around 18 km from Madikeri, Coorg. Gradually evolving as one of the best tourist spots in Coorg, this fascinating trail is located en route to Abbey Falls.

Among all the attractions in Coorg, I will certainly rate this as the best. The 30 min Jeep ride was fun and the view from the view point was breathtaking. The jeep ride costed as around Rs.1500 without any bargaining.

If you like off roading then take a trip to Mandalpatti where we drove in a jeep as normal cars do not drive due to bumpy roads. As for the place it is a nice sight viewing place to enjoy the atmosphere and climate.
