#FlipkartOutdoors Indiblogger Meet

It is the age of ecommerce and we like to do everything from the comfort of our home. Let us take shopping for instance. The once window shopping is now replaced by in window shopping (see what I did there). Given a choice most people like to spend their weekends outdoors, and by outdoors I don’t mean getting stuck in traffic and visiting malls. So you can now browse and select stuff you want to buy during breaks in office, thus keeping weekends free for your family and friends. Each city has weekend getaways that offer a range of activities like camping, cycling, trekking or just lazing in the arms of Mother Nature. Keeping this in mind, Flipkart now has a range of products that will make your outdoor experiences better and also helps you capture those moments to share (show off) to the rest of the world. Well, that pretty much sums up about what #FlipkartOutdoors is all about.

Chelavara Falls

This again is one of the places I visited during my trip 3 years back. Chelavara falls is on the Madikeri-Virajpet route. We had a tough time finding this place last time but now there are sign boards everywhere so it should be easy to reach. Even google maps is accurate with the route. The route in the last 5kms is bad but apart from that the roads are good.

Mandalpatti is one of the most scenic places in Coorg. In a post written nearly 3 years ago, I had explained the adventurous bike ride to this place. This time I went there in jeep and there was a huge difference in experience (Bike feels more near to nature). Also the place has become touristy resulting in more vehicles and crowd.
