Google maps will take you to this temple; motorable by cars. Very nice, peaceful, serene temple to visit. Panditji does very good and long puja, we felt so nice spending time here. Cars can easily reach here, with the last road portion laid in concrete. The remaining 12 km is a mixed bag road, with most of it being readied for relaying and is broad but in stones and mud levelling phase, small portions is pretty bad and cratered. couple of viewpoints are messmerizing on the way. There is a huge tree next to the temple, also a 6 foot snake slithered in front of our car on the way...at the top there is a divergence and only 4 wheel drive vehicles go on the mud road.

Actually this is same as Mandalpatti and must visit palce. Awesome views from here. Great to take lots of photos and enjoy the place. One can book a jeep from the KSRTC bus stand for sightseeing Mandalpatti and Abbey falls together for about INR 1200-1500. It is worth it as both the places are must visit and can be a half day trip. Mandalpatti is a beautiful place without any pollution, full of mountains around and peaceful. The road is not very great and hence one needs to go by jeep. There is a small trek not much to be honest and once you are at the top of this view point...it looks amazing. Food and water is not available so you can plan accordingly. You can stop to view mountains while on the way to the top of the hill the jeep driver would normally know good view points. Overall a must visit place in Coorg please dont miss it !

A 30km drive from Somvarpet gets you to the Pushpagiri temple on the peak. The Shiva temple is set in the backdrop of the hill range and very tranquail. The drive is pleasant enough, dont know about any activities like safari within this wildlife sanctuary ...

Pushpagiri is easily accessible by road, a 26 Kms drive from Somwarpet and a bit of steep climbs at high RPM's and low gears brings one to the beautiful place called Pushpagiri. The Shiva Temple adds to the divinity of this place. The trek to the Kumara Parvata can be undertaken from here, one can reach Kukke Subramanya at the end of the trail which I presume must be pretty hectic. We visited this fantastic place on 31st July 2016 and had a great time. Do message me if anyone wants any info. And to clarify Mandalpatti is another viewpoint situated about 18 Kms from Madikeri, it's another viewpoint all together.

If you are in the region, then it's a must. The trek is 7km long and climbs up 650m in altitude. You need to get to the forest check post at beedahalli to begin the trek. The first 4.25km are relatively gentle. Can be compared to nature walk under a thick canopy cover. You cross mountain streams and only wild life which accosts you is a lucky leech or a shy scorpion. However, the last 2.75km of the trek, is well prepared to test your grit. You face steep rock faces which transforms your nature walk into a rock climbing exercise. If you don't have a right kind footware, don't even attempt. The trek is both arduous and dangerous. The view from the top is a killer with an unadulterated non-commercialised experience. Carry food and water. You are in a jungle and climbing up a mountain, don't expect any help. More prepared you are, more you will enjoy....

Although its name is wildlife sanctuary but you will not find any animals as they all are in their hiding places. We just visited this place to enjoy the ride in 4x4 jeep. The view from the top is just amazing. It has the second highest peak of coorg. Go empty stomach for this ride. nice place to click photographs. Not much to do after reaching top of the mountain. But the jeep ride is worth the money.

It is beautiful place to visit in Coorg. You need to reach MandalPatti, from there you can get a jeep for 500/600 Rs to this place. Mist will surround you there all the time. Green mountains, surrounded by Mist, and You, it is amazing. Take your food and water as you will not get it there.

On the way to Abbey falls there comes Y junction saying welcome to abbey falls, take right to reach mandalpatti and left to reach Abbey falls. For next 12 Km road is good so you can go by your vehicle and after reaching mandalpatti you need to take Jeep as the road is really bad (but that is different fun to go on it). From Madikeri town you will get jeep to this place for 1500/1600Rs.

Pushpagiri wildlife sanctuary is located at Mandalpatti which is also the highest point near Madikeri. The 360 degree view from this was breathtaking ! It took us almost 1 hour drive to reach here in special jeeps which could make it here. The road or should I say the lack of it makes the terrain extremely difficult for a normal car to reach here. I would very strongly recommend that one should not even attempt to drive down by self to this point. If anyone has back problem should avoid this trip as the road is very uneven and full of rocks and boulders. Its actually off roading experience, which was thrilling but tough on the back.

As the name suggests, the place is a mountain with lovely plants and flowers. The sanctuary is covered by forest area which has semi-evergreen vegetation and dense evergreen trees. The sanctuary is recognized as for a variety of birds. One can also spot varieties of animals like Indian hare, spotted deer, giant flying squirrel, otters, Indian wild dog, brown palm civet, wild pig, sripe-necked mongoose, sambar, elephants, gaur, mouse deer, etc. Primates like common langur, lion-tailed macaque, and bonnet macaque can also be spotted.

We went there on a rainy day, after visiting Mallali falls, a serine beautiful place surrounded with hills, a paradise for trekkers. You can spend one day here for both the excellent places.

This is a part of Mandalpatti. Its not a separate location. No animals are visible here for tourists.
