Things to Do

Holy Rosary Church Shettihalli

Shettihalli is a small village, about 22 KM from Hassan. The Church is located about a couple of KM after the village on the Hemavathi river bed in Gorur reservoir.

A beautiful architecture, but it is already ruined seriously. Some walls are already washed off. It does not look like it would survive many more years. This place is not known to many people. There is no proper sign board during the drive anywhere or no architectural or historical information boards around the actual location as well. So it is really unattended and forgotten. Above all, the sadder part is that many public visitors have spoiled it further by inducing damages to parts of the remaining structure and scribbling ugly stuff all over the walls everywhere possible. Serious scar.

Other than those issues, it is a great feeling to see such an architecture and concept. It is said to be Gothic architecture and built by French missionaries in mid 19th century. We did see a narrow stream of water at the center of the river bed, some 300 feet from the Church. On the other side of the water on the river bed though, people were doing cultivated agricultural farming, spraying pesticides (you can see it in one of the pictures)! We interpreted that the water level probably has not been rising anytime seriously for many months or even years.

You can spot lot of birds along the river water stream — Egrets, River terns, Cranes, Kites, etc. They were all simply ecstatic going about their flights up and down in the surroundings and about catching their prey in water.

Magajahalli Falls

Magajahalli Falls flows from top of hills and comes down to form a exuberant waterfalls. The rocksides of the waterfalls gives extra glimpse to play around and to capture the photos. Though Magajahalli Falls close to the main road its difficult for first timers to notice since it is covered with thick trees and shrubs.

Agni Gudda

The “Agni Gudda” or Parvat as you would have guessed by now means “Fiery Mountain” for legendary volcanic activities in this region.
This location has been an all-time favorite with the youths from Bangalore for trekking, and outdoor camping. The mountain provides a great view of the surrounding rice terraces and a good spot for picnicking and outdoor camping.
This spot also has been recorded on various South Indian and Bollywood movies.
DISTANCE 10 Kms from Sakaleshpur

Bisle Ghat View Point

From this point one can see the mountain ranges of 3 districts: Kumara Parvatha (1319 m) of Dakshina Kannada district, Puspha Giri (1712 m) and Dodda Betta (1119 m) of Coorg district and Patta Betta (1112 m) and Enni Kallu (900 m) of Hassan district. The highlight of this point is that the view has a valley, with Giri River separating the beauty point and these mountain ranges. The forest department has erected a shelter here to sit and enjoy the view.

Kaginahare

The ruins of a small fort built by Tipu Sultan (1750-99) who ruled over the South Indian state of Mysore (1782-99) coupled with beautiful mountain range of Western Ghats could be found here. Milky white clouds hug the green hills and makes the place a heaven on earth. Ever felt like kissing the clouds!!?? You just read where to do.

Manjarabad Fort

Manjarabad Fort is located about 5 KM after Sakleshpur town when we go from Hassan. It is a simple and nice architectural fort. There are quite a few things to see here in a very small area: The fort wall, watch towers, a cross-shaped stepped well at the center, surrounded by dungeons, a few storage rooms, kitchens, tunnel (it is said that the tunnel was once connecting all the way to Tipu Sultan’s fort in Srirangapatna near Mysore), etc.

It is located slightly at an elevated ground with about 300 odd steps to climb, and gives a great view of the surrounding dense greenery of the western ghats. It is said to be Tipu Sultan’s border-monitoring camp for his soldiers. The fort walls are designed in a star-shaped layout; you can see it clearly in the satellite view of Google Maps here.

This place is very popular in recent times. During week days there is no crowd around, but on weekend there will be crowd around. The calm isolated location amplifies our experience of peace, apart from the sense of historic connection we go through when we walk through the structures here. Actually, one can spend quite a few hours here, a quiet few hours in fact, walk in and around all the structures, study them meticulously, and can gain a thorough deep feeling of historic connection.

Hanging Bridge

A small hanging bridge built by village panchayat across a small stream to make a near by village accessible to the outer world too has become a favorite place for the tourists and adventure lovers to hangout.

Mookanamane Abbi Falls

A beautiful water fall located amid the forest makes it almost a private water fall due to less tourist/ local crowd. As the water falls from about 35 – 40 feet height it gives an immense pleasure to the eyes of the individuals to watch the nature’s glory here.

The falls are attracting tourists from the region and the State. Though, there are scores of small streams and falls, the Mookanamane falls (Abbi falls) near Hetthur Hongadahalla has turned out a big hit among the nature lovers. The falls, which is usually roaring and in full force between June and December, is already overflowing in the first week of this month.The water falls from one to 12 feet height and spread on 50 feet. It mesmerizes those who flock this natural falls. The Mookanamane falls is located 35 km from Sakleshpur and hardly three km from Attihalli village. But the word of caution is that the rocks are very slippery and tourists should not do misadventure of going near the falls.

Pandavar Gudda

This place is beautiful for photography. Blazing sunrise and sunset gives a marvelous amount of happiness. Its a photographers paradise since we can valley of hills next to one another. The giant Jenukal Gudda is next to this Pandavar Gudda. Air distance to Jenukal is very near and want to reach there a full fledged planning is required for one whole day. Pandavar Gudda” as the name suggest it is mythology. It’s said that the pandavas had stayed during their vanavas and we can see the stone grinding. The place is true naturalistic as it is located inside the Western Ghats. The rainy season here is unbelievable and one must experience it. This place is not much discovered and we wish it remains the same.

Green Route Trek

Situated in the heart of western ghats and on Bangalore-Mangalore railway line, Sakleshpur to Yedakumeri railway trek offers a magnificent view of green misty hills, milky waterfalls, dark tunnels and old railway bridges over water streams and deep valleys.

A few hours walk and the jungle gets thicker. The flat terrain gives way to hills, and streams appear in the intersection of these hills. These hills and streams are in plenty, and this geography has resulted in creation of many tall bridges and long tunnels for the tracks. They are a prime attraction of the trek. There are bridges and tunnels that are almost a kilometer long. Bridges can be really high from the valley floor and are definitely not for the acrophobic(People with fear of heights). And the tunnels tend to be pitch dark and infested with bats, certainly not for those who fear darkness. The total walk can be anywhere from 10 to 16km to Yedakumeri – so some fitness is necessary to make the walk.

The bridges offer open and beautiful view of the valleys. Sometimes you can walk down the bridge and get into the streams, and take a dip in the clear and cold waters. You will also see water gushing down like a shower from openings in the tunnels, which serve as a refreshing shower if you are tired of the walk. We once made the walk in the middle of the monsoon, and the seeing water everywhere is a joy. You wade across the streams that seem to intersect with the tracks. The tunnels are always sounding with flow of water. Everything you see is wet, wet and wet. Its usually pouring day and night and you have to be either very well prepared or be ready to get completely wet. We had both: we were well prepared and yet we were ready to get completely wet and enjoy the rains.
