Visited with a group of friends in July for 2 days, had the most humbling and nourishing experience. There is no network coverage for Vodafone there, so after a long time completely cut off from the world outside and really enjoyed the home stay and Chickmanglur.
Difficult to say what was the best part of the trip - it would be a tie between three things:
1. Absolutely scrumptious and delicious local food prepared by Auntie (we over-ate throughout the trip)
2. The company of our humble & funny host Ikshu, who took us for several trips around the place while looking after us Mumbai-ites, completely new to this world.
3. The stunning beauty of the place, the endless mountains and valleys, streams and waterfalls, the dense forests mingled with plantations topped with wispy clouds
As far as the stay goes, we were made very comfortable by our hosts and given complete attention to as there was no double booking during our stay.
I would highly recommend Cross hill homestay to anyone looking for something other than the ordinary and is willing to step out of their usual world.More
