Food & Travel : Kotagiri - Part 2


We didnt have much plans on the last day as we planned to drive down to CBE for lunch. There were 2 main parks called Nehru and Pandiraj Park..As it was raining the the previous day we planned to visit there before we packed home.


We could only visit Pandiraj Memorial Park as it again started raining and it was time for us to drive downhill too.All the colorful flowers here were captured in that park.I didnt leave my camera to rest, it was soo beautiful!


Can you believe this is the sight at 10AM in the morning...yes mists covered everywhere which was a beautiful sight to watch.



Then headed straight towards Orange Peko to have our breakfast. It was a simple breakfast as the menu was limited there.We had egg omlette,idli with sambar chutney , half boil and coffee.


The hotel has a small coffee shop too which says its open 24X7.

Idli was not very soft but pretty much edible when dunken in sambar and chutney :) Mittu had idli too.
The coffee was very good...when I said lite coffee (as mittu wanted to have her sip too) they served the coffee with separate decotion so we made the coffee as per our liking and enjoyed it. Mittu loved it too!

The Pandiraj park had a small playarea and while mittu was busy playing, I was busy clicking :) It was a wonderful sight to watch without batting an eye so did my lens too :)

And from there we started our journey back to CBE waving bye to Kotagiri. We found the uphill journey long, but while returning back it took only 2.5 hrs. We reached CBE around 1:30PM , lunched at Anjappar and reached home.
To wrap up, it was a wonderful trip though a short one. If you are planning to relax in a quiet place with a nice weather then kotagiri is just for you!
