Karnataka Coffee TrailCycling Tours, Karnataka / 13 days / View on map
Karnataka is a tapestry of colours, cultures, flavours, landscapes, and timelessness. On this coffee trail you will discover a place where vibrant worlds seamlessly melt into one another in every few hundred kilometres. Sedate plains suddenly rise to dizzying mist covered hilly heights, and then plunge with careless abandon in a white watered freefall to become languid rivers that flow past cities where time has stopped altogether, and cities where time rushes a relentless rush to keep up with the world.
