Excellent pics, planning to visit this place soon.
Rajesh can you help us identify the places to visit around, details on those places (like timings and distance from the home stay).

Hey, I am planning a trip on the 19-20th March weekend. Albeit the place would be different altogether in the rains, are there any reasons I should put off my trip for later?

Please check my post here
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ml#post2261443 (Munnar, Kemmangundi or Chickmagalur for a 3 days trip?)

In Chikmagalur during
Rainy Season - Rains a lot
Winter season - Cold is too much in some places, around 8-9 d C (Min) - 17-19d C(Max)
Summer Season - Heat is not that much(Max of 29-30d C), you'll experience cool breeze
So decide the season when you want to visit.

Doesn't 30d get hot?! Why I ask is, in that temp., would it be pleasant to roam around?

Also one more thing, while surfing about the place, I came across a mention about Kayaking and White water rafting conducted there. Any idea?

One of the best homestays around.
Though they charge you a bomb if you take the Main building for stay, but it's defintely worth staying there.
Thanks sushrutha
It was a good stay. Yes the main building was costly but I was more than happy with the mountain view cottage

Whichever place i visited (the ones I have posted ) is very near to the place I stayed. I certainly might have missed some areas . As I mentioned in the first post. I dont remember all place names . :(

Not exactly hot. You don't sweat a lot.
But in winter if you are exposed to sun a lot , you'll defintely get the burning sensation

Which place are you talking about ? There is no white water rafting/kayaking anywhere near Mullaingiri mountain.
Only somewhere near Balehonnur (Bhadra river) you have options for white water rafting, that too only during rainy season.

Actually, even I had heard about this sometime back. It could be that some one is organising it on Hirekolale lake. Not sure though.

Then it's probably just Kayaking or canoeing.
For River rafting there is no river where rafting can be done in this place.
