Lake | Nature | Forest | Hill

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rubal Arora shares, “Great trek plus amazing view You get to the forest department's part through a really terrible road. ...The guide will take you to the viewpoint next which will just take your breath away. I personally hadn't seen a more peaceful and beautiful scene in my life. Silently enjoy the beauty of nature and spend some time feeling the cold air brush through your hair. This scene surely takes away all the tiredness of the walk. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Shalini Trivikram adds, “Kanthanpara Waterfall (also Kanthenpara) is a unique picnic spot where you could spend quality time with your family or friends.

HolidayIQ Reviewer R C adds, “Great experience in nature's lap...The little speedboat ride across the Denwa river to get to the sanctuary makes it a little more exciting. Then, there are the options. The traditional jeep safari, a canoe safari to look at the birds occupying the mud flats along the river,...Don't go chasing tigers here. They are a rare sight. What's more likely is you might meet its smaller, shyer cousin, the leopard. Or maybe a bear with cubs, or maybe nilgai or barking deer or chausingha, or black buck or a few of its 300+ avian inhabitants.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Snehal Raibole says, “One of the best places in Maharashtra to spot a tiger...We were driving through the park with a forest guard when we asked us to stop the car and avoid making any sound.

It's a protected area and a Project Tiger reserve, unlike other tiger reserves in Karnataka, it's least traveled place,...We saw loads of great Indian cormorant colony across the reservoir & while we were enjoying the scenery around there was downpour which made as feel as if, lord Indra wanted to fill the reservoir in one day itself, to top it up our motor boat stopped working momentarily in middle of reservoir, feeling was one of fun & fear together. ...we sighted deers, langurs, gaurs and a leopard. ...After the safari we went for water sports which included kayaking, Jet skiing, coracle ride & best was jumping from trampoline on the water below. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer ankur vohra shares, “Where Gods also Conspire with nature...Chikmagalur is a location you will want to come again and again and again. Better, you will want to purchase a coffee plantation and settle down. I cant forget the adventure of raindrops hitting me like needles and the wind hurling my 75kg frame to and fro.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer NILADRI BANERJEE shares, “Where diversity flirts with nature...Everything about Periyar is so beautiful. The journey starts with the uphill travel with spice garden on both sides of the zig zag hilly roads, and you will find almost all the spices growing there that are found in India.... You don't feel like you are going through a forest but as if you are meandering across gardens. ... You don't feel like you are going through a forest but as if you are meandering across gardens. ...Then comes the SAFARI, the Periyar Lake, situated ideally in the centre surrounded with forests and mini hillocks, which are home to a wide variety of animals and birds as the gardens are in spices. There are these cruises (around 200 people capacity ) which offers ride across the Lake throughout the day.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer SUBRAMANIA PALLAVOOR adds, “Ecology at its best...If you want to enjoy the mountains, forests and cascading water falls coupled with sighting of wild animals this is the place to be in. The range is called Gavi forest and is one of the last remaining ecological remains of Western Ghats.... The drive into the forest thick and shrouded in mystery is around 25 kms ending in forest Guest house. The drive through the forest is exhilarating which City dwellers like us cannot get daily. We sighted at least two herds of Elephants in their full majesty at close range. In addition we saw a big Black Bear moving in full throttle. ” Read Full Review

The dark, shining black skin, white fur on all the legs giving an impression as if they were wearing socks gave a very majestic and bold picture.” Read Full Review
