Setting: Enchanting mountain landscapes that enthrall your mind.
Visited - OCT 2016
It ended up being a SEE trip, which was plenty fulfilling and relaxing to the core. I could not DO much on this trip. The region has plenty of trekking activity and waterfalls, which I could not get to as some were closed and some limited by time. Saved for next time!
Moving around: Own transportation to get you to trekking start points, and then your mind, body and feet take over!!
This has made my revisit list.
Via Hassan – Belur– Mudigere (Roughly 7 hours)
Alternately, from Hassan you could take other routes via Chikmagalur.
From Mangalore (Karnataka) to Kalasa:
Via Moodbidri – Karkala (Roughly 3.5 hours)
*While I haven’t done the route from Mangalore, this destination is a popular tourist location for travellers from Mangalore.
Whichever route you take consider yourself lucky for the pleasing greenery and landscapes!
Stay: Very few options. I liked Silent Valley Resort. There are some basic lodging facilities in Kalasa town and few other resorts in the vicinity.
Know before your go:
Kalasa is a small town with limited options
Include plenty of time for treks-some require pre booking
