“It is not the destination where you end up, but the memories you create along the way.”Penelope A Riley, Travel Absurdities
Waking up to glimpses of trees shrouded in mist and bird songs is a nice change ! And as the sun colours up the mountainside in various shades of green, we saunder on to the restaurant for breakfast. Early guests get the balcony tables 😀; there is a small balcony overlooking the blue pool and the distant mountains, spectacular views with the scrumptious breakfast buffet!
After our Nature walk 👉A walk in the hills @Trivik, Chikmagalur 🚶🏻♂️🚶🏻♀️, the breakfast was well digested and we worked up an appetite for lunch. Lunch was biryani and Gulab Jamun for desserts 😋. The restaurant was full for lunch, it was Friday and there were a lot of guests checking in for the long weekend.
You can take a walk around the 30+ acre property, lot of plants and trees to see. I am ignorant about much of the living world, but one noticeable feature is the symbiotic relationship in the plant kingdom. You have many smaller plant types growing from the branches of the bigger trees. Also there are the birds; you can hear the constant chirping, but again not much knowledge about them either !I was thrilled with the different flowers grown and maintained here.
We walked around post lunch and hence missed the Coffee Plantation tour at 4:00 pm and ended up at their Valley View coffee shop, nestled in one corner of the property.
Jeep is the means of transport from the far flung villas in the resort to the main building; alternative are uphill and downhill walks to and fro. The main building houses the restaurant and reception.
We spent two nights at Trivik and enjoyed our stay. It was a memorable experience.
Have to mention that even the hills get crowded during the major holidays as everyone wants to get out of the city and go somewhere. And so on our journey back from the mountains, it was not surprising that there was a long traffic jam along the winding mountain roads. We were stuck for almost an hour in standstill traffic while going downhill. The roads being narrow, it’s difficult for two cars to cross at some places, not to mention the hairpin curves.
Till next post, take care !!
