Catch awe inspiring mountain views in this land of plantations where tea, coffee, rubber, pepper and cardamom gently coexist with the rich diversity of tranquil sub tropical forests. Undulating paths lead you breath-taking altitudes. Where, finally, from the top, you can look down and marvel at nature's prowess as a landscape painter. With a cool climate and lush greenery year round, Vythiri affords the weary traveler blissful advantage of being only 3 hours from Mysore in distance and leaving city life - far, far behind in spirit.
