"**positivity** **Aree God God*** **Mundu love**"

  • Posted Oct 25, 2017
Lovely land of heaven covered with mighty mist surrounded all green with no human to live.
Stands there holding waters, with hills to guard it, flowing down the stream when fill and cherished.
Reaching this place was the most Haunted thing, no proper roads in the midst of fierce forest there it lies calm, steady, binding for no one to see. The bends to reach there got us more excited to see it. It's a mist visit place if you are tired of swinging around polluted cities.
Important note: there is no facility of food or water or shelter available on the route, bad roads(can be said no roads), you don't get Mobile signals and main not many loacls know the route so better download the route over the Google map.

"A small town with pretty good number of industries"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 9, 2017
The town is pretty good when considered about climate.
There is an elephant camp "Sakrebail" wherein, you get to see lot of elephants.
There is another zoo about 15kms from city, pretty well maintained.
Religious places like Sringeri and Horanadu comes under this district and are within radius of 125kms.

We gone Shimoga for a pleasure trip. Visited agumbe, jog falls, lion and tiger safari, elephant safari, kemmanagundi, annapurna temple etc.
Actually we expect agumbe was a good climate and lot of rain, but unfortunately it was too hot and there was no rain.
Jog falls also off season on may.
I will suggest everybody to visit kemmanagundi. It was nice experience. So cool thr. Also lion and tiger safari was good.

Shimoga, the city is developing. Underground walking tunnels and cleanliness are the most important factors which can be enjoyed over here. Apart from that, Tyavarekoppa lion safari and Sakrebayalu elephant camp are the nearest places to visit which are hardly 15kms.
