"Red soil and green coverage"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 29, 2016
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.

"Serene beauty of the western ghats"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 15, 2015
This is a wonderful place for nature lovers, if you are lucky. You might spot some Tigers on the way to this place. We spent a night at government cottage which was well maintained and then trekked 2. 5 km to the top of the mountains to Z point. On the way back from the trek, we heard a tiger roared at us from the bush. We had to take an alternative route back. It was adventurous. Most part of the hill is now coffee estate. And the rest are tiger reserve.

"Kemmangundi Hill station"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Aug 27, 2014
The place is situated in chickmagaluru district of Karnataka. It is a hill station which is 350 km from Bangalore. The hill station is 1400 km above the sea level with an awesome weather and full of greenery and mountains surrounding. The place is also near to the Mulayangiri mountain ranges. The trip to kemmangundi can cover the other places like mullayangiri and hebbe falls. The right season to visit this place is from June to September. Trekking and roaming are the best activities here, stay in the resort is awesome. It is worth going here for a weekend holiday.

"My favorite destination"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 24, 2013
People who love nature and the mountain view must visit this place, which is located at 270 km from Bangalore and it is 4.5 hours drive. Monsoon and winters are the best time to visit here. There are several homestays in and around this place, which would range between Rs.1,000/- to 2,000/- per person per day inclusive of dinner and breakfast.
