Sandalkad Estate is a sprawling 225 acre coffee and spice plantation, located near the main town of Madikeri in Coorg. It's been in the same family for over 150 years. However, the current owners took it over in 2000. At that time, the plantation was in a bad condition, and they have invested a great deal of effort into restoring it. As can be seen from the photo, the estate is now looking very lush and healthy. This scenery is typical of what you'll see all over Coorg.
