A much needed break was what took us on a journey to the Honey Valley Homestay near Virajpet. The Hunsur-Gonikoppa-Virajpet-Honey Valley road was under maintenance and hence was a bad choice to travel on. The return via Madikeri was pleasant. On arrival we were pleasantly greeted and taken to our room. The rooms were neat and tidy gave us an amazing view of the Western Ghats. A number of bird calls kept us company into the night and we awoke to the calls of many more in the early hours. The food is simple and an unlimited buffet with limited dishes. Non Veg dishes and eggs are available on order. The Home stay has a number of routes to trek on and these are classified into short, medium and long treks. They also have a nice library with a lot of books on the local flora, fauna, culture and traditions. The pre monsoon showers added to the romance and the weather was pleasant. A cup of tea with hot pakoras watching and listening to the various birds was a relaxing way to end the day.
