To witness the scenic beauty of the place, one has to walk through the dense forest.

If you are going during the season, you can see plantation workers adept at working with cardamom and coffee beans. If you knock at the right corners, you might even get a chance to pluck a few with them on the local beat.

As 900 Kandi is a slowly discovered area, there are not many specific attractions apart from what nature can offer. In order to promote tourism, there is a glass bridge that gives quite a view of the entire space. It is on private property, and you have to pay a fee before walking through the bridge. It is a crowded place and probably not a good choice if you want to enjoy the beauty in peace. There are waterfalls that can give you immense moments of peace, but be aware of the leeches that can grab on to you during walks to the waterfalls.
