The Perfect Getaway



You will notice in the profile picture a bunch of bisons ambling around tea bush. This is the very first sight we got as we drove into the lush tea estate of Taurus Homestay. We were greeted with a broad and wise smile from Rajin and his stories of the bounty nature provides in the land that John Sullivan started his exploration with. These are the oldest teas estates in Ooty hill ranges! Place: Set amidst tea bush, you enjoy vistas of forests, bisons aplenty and if lucky some leopard, bear and deer too. There are few places that can match this setting. Bison freely grazing a few meters from you is a daily common. Look for the views of Sirumugai plains on a clear day. Persist Rajin for a estate trail or a more adventurous jungle trek. It also helps that the general standards of rooms are on par with 5star hotels. Hosts: Rajin will entertain you with endless stories about nature, animals, history and Kothagiri heritage. He will take you on wonderful trails across this beautiful landscape. Reshma will pamper you silly with the best home cooked Coorg food ever and her ever graceful demeanour. Together, they are plain simple, straight talking and absolutely warm. Taurus is special!
