Trees, hills, coffee plantations, organic farms, sunsets, it’s like heaven on Earth for nature lovers! In spite of being a small, old-fashioned area, there is just so much to do in Chikmagalur that a short getaway simply doesn’t do justice.

Pleasant gusts of wind, light rainfall, and chilly winters are just an added bonus. An ideal Chikmagalur tour would include treks through some of the highest peaks in the area, namely the Mullayanagiri and the Baba Budangiri range, which is just 10 kms from the former. Both offer unmatchable views of valleys, sunrises and abundant greenery that you can’t get enough of.

A short distance away from Chikmagalur is the mighty Kudremukh, the highest peak at a height of 1894 metres above sea level, that you might want to conquer on your getaway and trek through the Kudremukh peak. Then there’s the Jhari Falls which resemble buttermilk gushing down from a height of 328 feet and the Hebbe Falls which are nestled within a coffee estate and are a magnificent sight to behold!

Speaking of coffee, make sure you visit the numerous coffee plantations while on your visit to the hill-station. You could also request a special tour of the coffee-making process and buy some fresh filter coffee to bring back home. Make a stop at the sizeable Hirekolale Lake, an ideal point for a photo shoot with friends and family, and end the day with a light meal at one of the many restaurants the town offers, serving up some delicious local cuisine like Bisibele Bhaat, Akki Roti and a variety of chutneys to go with it. Chikmagalur packages generally include food, stay and travel so you needn’t worry about that.

Most of the Chikmagalur tour packages are also customized to your preferences, so you can choose from a host of options. If you’re an adventure junkie, you can choose from a whole lot of treks, especially those that operate at dawn and dusk, so you can set your eyes on the splendid sunrise and sunset. If you’re an animal lover, you can head to the Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary and spend a day with flora and fauna, while on safari.

Nature lovers can simply travel to all the beautiful waterfalls Chikmagalur has to offer and stop by at the lakes. There are gardens where children can play, temples where the elderly can find solace, and cycling and biking tours for youngsters to enjoy an adrenaline rush. Chikmagalur has something for everyone!

If you’re looking for something off-the-beaten-path, we’d definitely recommend spending the long weekend here. Surrounded by mountains, plantations, fields and falls, the ‘Coffee Land of Karnataka’ is definitely worth a visit

The drive to the location is scenic and if you love driving, then it is a double-treat. We reached around 2 PM in the afternoon last weekend and yes, it was raining but intermittently. We enjoyed the rainy weather a lot. Kids had an absolutely wonderful experience with some of the activities on site like playing in the slushy mud, rain dance, and of course we spend a good amount of time in the water stream that passes around this camping site. No, it's not a river... it is a big water stream that flows from the hills around the site. The staff is extremely helpful, and Aditya who manages the site is a great person. He can also talk in Hindi and English fluently, not just Kannada. So, you will never have to worry about communication issues. The food was super delicious all through lunch, dinner and breakfast... served hot. In fact, when we arrived at the site we were the only guests there and that earned us brownie points in specifying the menu for both lunch and dinner. We did not stay in the tents that were available as we had two kids who were less than five years old and didn't want the weather to affect their health. Next time for sure though. The cottages were well-maintained and we stayed in one of them. The surrounding scenery is breathtaking with the stream flowing right in front of the cottages. Overall, a fantastic place to unwind and relax... and have fun with the various activities. A big thank you to the staff for making our stay a memorable one. I for one would surely like to revisit this place and stay for more than a day. And, in the rainy season! Cheers!
"It was a great experience. Having had no experience of this sort before, I was in dilemma to book it or no. However, It was lot of fun, we covered all the locations in less time than scheduled. "
This homestay is at the top of the hill and a maximum of 12-15 people can be accommodated at a time . You feel at one with nature and can sit watching the hills for ever . The couple who host this place are very warm and make you feel at home. Extremely clean and tasty food add to the experience. I would love to go back and recommend this to any one who wants a calm get away with their family and friends.
A secluded home stay in the middle of jungle and mountains with little to no connectivity to the city. The jeep ride from hanbal to the spot is hell of a journey, you’ll remember forever. The view point from the spot is amazing and out of the world. However, beware of leeches if you’re going in monsoons. It’s a perfect weekend gateway if you want to relax with your family and friends.
"it was an awesome experience, Stay was good and Karthik arranged trekking,visit to less known water fall and and a hill station view and shooting point... Everything was awesome. the Time we choose to visit chikmagalur was just perfect (Aug 31 to Sep2). it was cool weather there with slight raining and drizzling.
