I and my friends Sandy and Varun reached Agumbe, we decided to head to a place known as Jogigundi Falls. It was an amazing place a perfect place to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We went trekking through the serene region and spotted wildlife here. We returned back to the village and had our lunch before making our way to the Koodlu Theertha falls. After spending some time at the sunset point we made our way down from the Ghat section to the Someshwar. It was a wonderful trip for all of us.

I am an adventure enthusiast and adventure and thrill keeps me going. Me and my friends have made it a point to undertake at least one thrilling trip in the year. Usually, that happens in December since that is the shut down period in our office. This time, we wanted to explore South India since we stay in the North and have explored most places in and around North, West and East. Moreover we have always enjoyed watching Malgudi days as kids so we finally decided to explore Agumbe village and the nearby surroundings. Agumbe is definitely a must visit place for anyone who loves to trek in the forest. The place is a home to several wild animals. For anyone who has a passion for photography, this place has lot on offer. The best part is that it is not expensive at all.
