Other than curling up on the delightful hammocks that are strung under the mango trees, one can choose to go bird watching among the plethora of birds that are sighted here including the beautiful Fly-catcher, Grey Hornbill, Small Minivets, Owls, Indian Pitta, Drongo and Migratory birds.
Nature walks & Village life
One can take long leisurely walks to the sunset point which offers breathtaking views of the setting sun mirrored on the winding Cauvery river or choose to take the other path that passes by Kurbalhundi, the village next door and get a glimpse of pastoral life in all its simplicity.
There are cycles available on the farm if one wishes to cycle around the countryside and meander through the paddy fields along the tiny canals and the cauvery river. One can also take a trip to the ancient temples of Talakadu that abound with tales of piety and devotion, curses and blessings!
The other places within a radius of 25 kms from Talakadu are Gaganchukki and Barchukki Falls and Somnathpura that one can visit.
Bandipur, BR Hills and Mysore are also popular destinations that one can go to.
