About Chikmagalur and Sakleshpur

Malnad region is a part of Western Ghats family

About Chikmagalur

Chikmagalur has played host to an event, thanks to which, countless Indians wake up to brighter mornings. Centuries ago, when the Sufi mystic Baba Budan smuggled seven coffee beans from Yemen into India, he probably didn’t bargain for millions of coffee junkies unwittingly blessing his soul everyday, with every sip of their coffee. Chikmagalur, whose hills nurtured the coffee culture at its bosom, is a green slice of heaven on a permanent coffee high. In and around Chikmagalur there are beautiful hill stations and places of picturesque beauty.

The district is strewn with many holy spots and proliferates legends associated with stories from the epics of Ramayana and the Mahabharata. It is generally cool throughout the year, with a maximum temperature of 28°C. The best season to visit would be from September to March. The river Hemavathi is a tributary of Kaveri. This river originates in the Western Ghats – Ballala Rayana Durga – in Chikmagalur. The river joins with its main tributary, Yagachi river, at Hassan, then flows on to join Cauvery near Krishnarajasagara. The river is nearly 245 km long from its place of origin to where it converges with Cauvery.

About Sakleshpur

Another favourite off-roading destination down the Western coast is Sakleshpur in Karnataka – which is known for its off-road trails that follow a river bed and pass through numerous waterfalls. There are tons of preidentified trails in the area, and while all of them have their own levels of difficulty, they all lead to some of the most beautiful scenes ever. From there, you can further venture on to the plantations in Chikmagalur for some more off-road bliss!

Apart from commercial once, there are few authentic homestays in Sakleshpur providing good hospitality and local Malnad food within their own house. This make guest and travellers to feel safe and private. All people coming to Sakleshpur from different places like Bangalore, Mysore, Mangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad etc. come in search for a true homestay, who shares generous amount of knowledge on Sakleshpur’s nature, culture, space, food and lifestyle. Many know that Sakleshpur is gifted by vast amount of Western Ghats region amounting for adventure activities like trekking, off-roading, jeep drive, waterfalls and coffee plantation walk.

I had been looking for a proper homestay kind of experience and finally my favourite homestay in Chikmagalur which is remotely placed away from cities. We were a family of 16 people and the entire property was given to us. The stay offered us peace, good food (lunch, breakfast, evening snacks and breakfast) and best chance to get closer to nature. One more plus point is that this location is perfect as in between Chikmagalur and Sakleshpur. As most of the sight seeing are very near from this place.
If you are looking to spend 2 to 3 days especially during winter, relaxing in midst of the nature, then this is a really really good option. In all, one of the most best homestay experience we have ever had.

Great homestay to visit with family and friends, the hosts are the sweetest and most friendly. The stay is near by to most trekking locations, and as the best natural view. Not to forget the food is awesome.


We had a very good experience. Food especially main course was very good. Rooms n toilet were neat n well maintained. There are many options to spend time within the home stay n very near to good trekking spots. Jeep is arranged for reasonable additional cost. Can go cycling (available in home stay) amidst nature. Good for family too. Phone network is very limited and available only in certain spots within homestay. Away from all distractions of city life! I recommend this place. Will definitely visit again with family.
