“My wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in a corner of nature.” Claude Monet
I have missed traveling and spending time with mother nature so much that words can not explain the ache and urge. After much contemplation, we decided to visit the Mysore Zoo because the little one loves to run and is fascinated by the animals and birds.
I booked a homestay away from Mysore city as I wanted it to be safe and enjoy homecooked food soaking in the green around us.
We reached Mango Mulch just in time for lunch, after a quick visit to the Gaganachukki falls.
The meal was simple, local, and delicious. I was famished and hence no pictures.
There are three cottages each can accommodate three people. They are spacious with amazing views. Canopy of mango trees, lined with sapota tree, amla tree, and many more plants. A serene, nature lover’s delight.
We spent the rest of the evening in the lap of nature, with the crickets chirping, monkeys playing hide and seek, and the sun setting in the sugar cane field.
The next day we had planned to go to the Mysore Zoo. Since we were not available for lunch, on request they packed lunch for us. Given the pandemic situation, we wanted to avoid restaurants and closed places.
We returned back to Mango Mulch on time for a delicious dinner and fruit custard. We left the property the next day in the morning.
