Western Ghats – Malnad Heritage Homestay
The lower half of Indian peninsula is flanked by the Western and Eastern Ghats. These stretches of mountains running along the coasts are unperturbed by their lack of heights as they are of incredible ecological significance. The Western Ghats have earned a place in the UNESCO World Heritage Center as one of the eight ‘hottest hotspots’ for biodiversity. Also called Sahyadri, meaning ‘benevolent mountain’, these western ranges are suspected to be older than the Himalaya. On the inner slopes of this massif, in southwest Karnataka, is a hilly district called Malenadu. Malenadu constituted traditional rich heritage homes.

Who We Are

Originally the vast acres of land were used for cultivation and farming purposes. The family owning this farm land converted the traditional houses of their ancestors to homestays when a bunch of young Japanese visited them in early 2000s and expressed their joy in staying at such a wonderful place. Once a dense cardamom plantation area, in the recent past it has been converted to coffee plantation area. This adds on to the memorable experience of living amidst the beautiful coffee estate.
