The life of a farmer involves some daily chores. Milking the cow for fresh milk, plucking flowers for daily worship, harvesting the garden for home grown vegetables for cooking, riding the bullock cart to town for some provisions, exploring the countryside by foot.
Here are some things you could do during your stay.
You can begin your day with a nature trail, which will take you to a pond at the end of the farm. On your return, indulge in a light oil massage in the open, under the warm rays of the sun. Freshen with a steam bath.
A hot breakfast of the mouth-watering Kongu cuisine gets you started for the day – be it on a pursuit of quiet exploration of the farmstead, or getting involved in the everyday farm routine of harvesting coconuts, watering the crops, feeding the cattle, or even trying your hand at making Kongu dishes.
For those wanting to de-stress and do nothing, trees offer the ideal canopy to lie down and bird watch, read a book or simply soak in the sights and sounds of nature.
A naturally set up park is there for the kids to trigger an adrenaline rush and some traditional games for the adults. Try your hand at traditional in-door games such as Chadurangam, Pallankuzhli, Paramapadham, Aadu Puli Aatam, Dhaayam, Pannagal / Anchangal / Kallangal….For those who prefer the great outdoor, there is the golli, nondi, gilli….
After all the activity, take a refreshing bath at the pump set. An unforgettable experience. Enjoy star gazing at sun down or start your own campfire.
A 4:30 hours Adventure drive through a dense thick tropical forest which is fully covered with lush evergreen on the mountains. This drive may be suitable to most of the nature lovers who are interested to get an amazing feel of wildlife enthusiasm.
