Birdwatching

Magnolia and the area around are a paradise for bird-watchers and amateur and professional photographers alike. The region borders a national sanctuary that begins outside the resort and goes all the way into Kerala.

Magnolia alone is the home of over 200 varieties of exquisite birds. Birds at the estate are best seen at dawn and late afternoons, perched atop the trees around the plantation. Outside the estate, many of these have been well documented in the book “Feathered Jewels of Coorg” written by nationally renowned ornithologist and medical practitioner, Dr. SV Narasimhan of Virajpet.

Walking and hiking

For those who enjoy walks and hikes amidst nature, there are enough miles to go. Enjoy walking on the tracks within the estate which go through the plantation to the lakes and the hills atop the estate. For serious hikers, the staff will guide you to the right trails at and around Magnolia.

Plantation walks

Location

Magnolia is located in Arji Hills, near Perumbadi Checkpost, Virajpet. It is set in the heart of a nearly 80 acre coffee plantation on a hill side. The hills behind Magnolia are called Arji Hills which are the beginning of the Western Ghats of Kerala. The estate is one of the very last estates at the edge of Coorg. So, there’s plenty of space for outdoors lovers.

Magnolia Estates lie at the edge of Coorg and Karnataka on the national highway to Kannur (formerly Cannanore) in Kerala. The estate is located on a hill side with an all-round view of the magnificent Virajpet Valley in front. Behind Magnolia Estates are the first waves of the famous Western Ghats of India. Besides coffee, pepper, and cinnamon, the area around this 80 acre estate is blessed with a very large variety of flora and fauna, animals like elephants, deer, boar, monitor lizards, and porcupines as well as nearly two hundred varieties of exotic birds.
