Nature is all we were surrounded by in Nilgiris or the ‘Queen of Hills’ as it is better known, where one can escape to for a perfect getaway to the Pembroke Villa. Drive for about 2 hours from Coimbatore city, we went up and down the hills to reach the selected destination. A narrow lane covered both sides with tea estates took us to the main gate of the bungalow. I was in the midst of a 200-acre tea estate and somehow felt far from lost. It was indeed a happy feeling. The luxury and great facilities the villa offered, alongside nature’s beauty, was exactly the perfect combination I always dreamt of having. Obsessed with sunrise and sunsets, I was beyond happy when I saw the sun go down, and the sky filled with splashes of orange, red and yellow. I had heard stories of elephants and bears visiting the place over a cup of coffee and pakoras, but learnt that they were more rare visitors on a regular basis. However, in no time I was lucky to witness a herd of bison come visiting.
