Long weekend coming up in November 1st thanks to Kannada Rajyotsava!
Let this long weekend you from your tedious work, pollution, and boring routine life.
Experience the Western Ghats, which are older than the mighty Himalayas, at their best with the combination of Agumbe and Kodachadri.
Agumbe famous as Cherrapunjee of the south is known for its scenic beauty and bio-diversity. Have once in a lifetime experience of staying in the heart of the rainforest. Explore the Mystic fort, dip in pristine and untouched waterfalls coming straight out of mountains.
Kodachadri Jeep trail includes a beautiful terrain which has a thick forest, grasslands, chilling waterfalls in between and then a thrilling ridge walk at the top. The landscapes one gets to witness from the top of the mountain are simply mind-blowing.
The majestic Kodachadri is relatively close to the Arabian Sea. How can we miss the beaches when we are traveling so close to the west coast?
Let's also head to the most happening Malpe beach of Udupi and walk barefoot on the beach.
