Situated within a tropical rainforest amidst green plantations of coffee and pepper, Honey Valley's Chingaara Estate offers its guests a sojourn into nature from the comforts of a relaxing guest house.

With a private waterfall flowing down from mist covered hills, a virgin forest teeming with biodiversity, and the aromatic presence of the coffee plantations all around you, Chingaara welcomes you with ample nourishment for your senses as well as your soul.

The location of Honey Valley's Chingaara Estate, deep within one of India's oldest rainforests, offers an abundance of opportunities for a soul seeking connection and rejuvenation in nature. An ideal place to engage in everything from hiking to bird watching to enjoying the pleasure of doing nothing, Honey Valley's Chingaara Estate has something for everyone - the serious outdoor enthusiast looking to summit Coorg's highest peak, Mt.Tadiandamol, as well as the nature lover that gladly enjoys the private waterfall, gorgeous instagrammable views and a thriving biodiversity - all within the estate grounds.
