Hi Guys♡ ! Finally done with this one..I went to Chikmagalur which is 6 hours travel from Bangalore..This place has got gorgeous landscapes ,waterfalls,greenery,hills..it was an short trip with my friends..we had soo much fun exploring this place… I really hope you enjoyed experiencing it with us..! 🙂 XOXO
To reach Chikmagalur , you can take an bus from Bangalore its six hours travel . Make sure you get an window seat if not you would miss to see the beautiful hills and beautiful scenary to see.
We stayed in Orchid Hotel, which in the town but I would recommend to take an home stay which is surrounded by hills and you can feel the real chikmagalur. Since we reached in the late evening we just went to the nearest café “Siri Cafe “ relax sitting outside and sipping hot coffee. There is a huge sculpture of a lady who is lying down and is covered with grass.
Day 1 : On Day 1 , we started up early morning around 8 and the first places we visited was Seethalayan Matha on the way to Mullayanagiri. This temple was surrounded with clouds and drizzling..Next we started walking to Mullayangiri Peak,it’s the best attraction in Chikmagalur. Mullayanigiri Peak is the highest peak in Karnataka and the view from the top of the peak is surely spectacular. After this we had our lunch on the was in an small shop but It was the best food ..food was soo delicious and we were ordering more and more..
Next we went to the Buttermilk waterfalls also know as Jhari waterfalls. This is perfect retreat from the busy citi life.This waterfall is surrounded by dense forest and coffee plantation. We went like trekking through the forest , it was an best experience walking in the forest finding new route to reach the falls..
From there we went to Baba Budan Hills, It has a lovely mountain, It is famous for trekking.
Day 2: We started our day early even before sunrise as this was our last day here and we still have few more places to see with a time constraint that is by 11 Am..so sad..just started the trip and its almost over..Next time when I cum here I know how many days to stay here because two days is surely not enough to cover these beautiful landscapes waterfalls, forest , food..etc..Everything about here is soo overwhelming..
So on this day we first went to Hirekolale Lake,The most calmest, beautiful, absolutely non commercial lake in Chikmagalur. A small hut is there in the lake , like you have seen in movies..You can simply go and sit in the hut of the lake. View the surroundings for 10 mins. You will feel refreshed like anything. The lake water and two adjoining mountain views are impeccable. Best place to do write, plan your future, meditation etc.
N Nature at its best
Then opposite to this we went to coffee plantation, which was restricted but we wasn’t aware until we went middle of the forest and caught by the owner..:P Yeah that happened..this plantation was surrounded with long trees and we clicked soo many snaps with DSLR.. you get the feel of into the greens..and skies..thats it..
Here ends our trip and we came to hotel packed our luggage for home ,with soo much of fun filled memories and good experiences..
Dont forget to check my videos and experience the feel with us..
Much Love ,
and have an awesome day!
