Nisargadhama forest, Coorg


Nisargadhama is a lovely picnic spot in Coorg. This is located at a distance of around 30 kms from Madikeri. If you reach Kushal Nagar town, this place is hardly 2 kms from there.

The entire forest is located inside an island. You need to cross the river Kaveri through a hanging bridge to reach the place. The sprawling 64 acre forest has a deer park. You can also get elephant rides. Boat rides are also available.

Nisargadhama is a treat to our eyes with thick bamboo groves, sandalwood and teak trees surrounded by river Kaveri. You will also get to spot rabbits and peacocks in the forest.
Nisargadhama also has a beautiful children park. This is a perfect picnic spot where you can get elephant ride, boat ride, bird watching, watching deer, peacock and rabbits, children parks and beautiful sight of bamboo trees along the banks of river Kaveri. If you want to stay in the forest and enjoy the nature, there are facilities of resort inside the forest.


Let me provide more information on various other places of interests in Coorg in my forthcoming posts.

Till then...
