Red soil and green coverage

This is a hill place in Karnataka, it's a small place in remote location, away from city and lonely destination.

It's usp is pristine nature and cool climate, wonderful in rainy season, except waterfall and small Park, not much to see.

Only government guest house provide basic accommodation, but book in advance, else nowhere to stay, nearby. Good for a day stopover, but strenuous to reach.

Must carry food and drinks, nothing on road side. Beware of blood sucking leeches, while trekking.

Happy place for couples or dating Pairs. Appreciate peace and harmony & chirping birdsong. Worthy of a visit in summer.
