Som's Getaway

About 2 kms away from a bustling town called Balale, is a small cottage that provides bed & breakfast to the traveler. Early mornings are a riot of sorts with bird cries of various hues. Iruppu Mountains are visible from the paddy fields below. River Laxmanatirtha is a K.m away. You can try cycling and fishing at the two ponds in the plantations. The Somannas grow Coffee, Paddy, Pepper, Cardamom, Oil palm and Oranges and also try their hand at hospitality. The closest tourist attraction is Rajiv Gandhi National Park, beginning 5 km away.




The house can accommodate six people and has a loft where ado scents can sleep. Has two functional toilets & one Indian toilet.

Tohra Valley is another property the Somannes own near Virajpet which is a good camping site for the brave hearts.
