Mesmerizing, picture-perfect & absorbing are the apt words to describe the small hill-station of Madikeri resting in the Western Ghats. Exhibiting austere freshness & charm, the town comes to life when peeked through the camera lens. But not to constraint the praise, the Scotland of India is as alive as it gets in the calm tropical highland climate. One can try & be a conventional tourist type here, but it’s totally worth to step out of the vehicle & have a closer look at the roadside traces of nature. The only thought that wobbled around my mind was that everything was at peace. Less commercialized & pollution-free, definitely better traits than any of the hill-stations I’ve been to.
