I took a bus from Hyderabad, Telangana to Honnavar, Karnataka - a 15 hour journey and reached Honnavar at 07:00 AM. Perfect timing to start a beach trek - early morning. I got down before the main bus stand in Karki and walked to the Hanging Bridge which was constructed somewhere in mid-2016 over the Badagani river. Honnavar is a small village in Uttara Kanda. There are over 15 such hanging bridges in Uttara Kanda, which is ~80% forest and has ~10 rivers, easing access to these remote villages and also becoming a tourist attraction because of the awesome river view.
