    Yana Trek

    Yana is a well-known Shaivite pilgrimage center in Karnataka.

    Yana is now fast becoming the place to be for rock climbers. There is a popular saying about Yana, The one with tremendous guts and determination goes to Yana and the one with money bags goes to Gokarna (another pilgrimage center near by).

    Yana is part of Sahyadri range and is blessed with varied rock formations, rugged mountains, streams and dense verdant forest. Yana offers plenty of opportunities for trekkers. There are number of Trekking Trails and peaks to explore.

    Here, in the midst of dense forest, two black limestone needle sharp gigantic peaks stand out and are the major attractions. These two peaks are known as Bhairaveshwara shikara (120 ft high) and Mohini shikara (90 ft high). One can spot hives of wild bees and bats in these rock-shelters.

    A cave temple (a natural formation), called the abode of Lord Shiva, is located at the base of the Bhairaveshwara shikhara. The cave also has a bronze idol of Goddess Chandika who is considered to be an incarnation of Goddess Durga.
