I had been to Kemmanugundi trip for 2 days along with my colleagues last week.
It was a memorable in many ways..may be relaxation from office work,tension free,enjoying nature in our Malnad region.
We left office early morning in Tempo traveller..Journey was awesome except driver who was little bit reserve & not so cooperative..
Kemmanugundi is in Chickmagalore district,a place full of greenery with full of Coffee plant & a Ghat section.Hardly we see people there..As now it is winter it was very cold in Night & early morning.. " I found two main things which may be the reason its attracting less people now a days,road from Kemmanugundi to HEBBE Falls is Worst..We have to hire a Jeep again for that 13 Kms journey to reach that falls for that we have to atleast Rs 100 per head..And one more thing is that there is only 1 hotel ..!" that too we have to give order in advance for dinner or Lunch.then only they will prepare.But Cost wise it was very good..
I was wondering why Goverment is not taking much interest in this , when they can make this place more Tourist attractive & can get more money to Tourism Department of Karnataka..
We also visted kalhat giri falls,where we had a nice bath with play in fresh & cold Water.After that we had Darshan of Shree Veerabhadra Swamy..Although we went to Bababudan giri mountain(Hill) which is the highest mountain Karanataka we could not enter Temple & Masjid which is there due to ongoing work which will take another 4 months to open..We felt sad as we went with great expectation to bababudangiri..
On the way to Trip one of my colleague who is a very good guitarist entertained us a lot.We were so tired on the way back to Kammangundi from Hebbe falls we fall asleep without Dinner unless a person from Hotel came & knocked door with nice Dinner..On the way back we had nice dinner in Hasan at night..Our trip was memorable as we enjoyed a Nature with full of greenery,Coffe plants,shared jokes,enjoyed nice photography,pulled others legs....Hope people will take some time visit this place to keep themselves fresh and active..
