Nisargadhama: A Paradise Island
Nisargadhama is a beautiful island situated in between the river Cauvery very close to Kushalnagar town that is located just 28 km away from Coorg, a district in the southern state of Karnataka in India. This natural paradise is a major attraction for the tourists as it provides a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the cities. It has been converted into a forest resort for the tourists who are thrilled to find not only wildlife but also small streams, sandalwood trees, bamboo trees and teak tress. You will find yourself sitting in the lap of Mother Nature when you are in this huge 25 acre island situated just 2km off the state highway.
A natural paradise in the midst of River Cauvery
You can reach Nisargadhama by a hanging bridge that is made across river Cauvery. This bridge is the only connection between this beautiful paradise in the middle of Cauvery and the outside world though a new bridge has now been built. But once you come inside this paradise, you are in an altogether different world with lush green foliage, rosewood, and bamboo trees making you feel as if you are in the middle of a forest. You are now on a sprawling natural reserve that consists of a deer park and an orchidarium.
Enjoy quality time in the company of nature
For tourists coming over to Nisargadhama, there are accommodation facilities in the form of a state run guest house. There are also tree top cottages on bamboo trees for those who are more adventurous. Nisargadhama is an ecological park that serves as a picnic spot for the tourists though you can plane a vacation for a few days in this natural island that is very quiet and peaceful. This is an ideal place for a retreat for you if you are a nature lover. Spend some quality time in the lap of Mother Nature while also engaging in exciting activities such as boating and elephant rides.
