It was foggy, chilly weather. and was colder than Bangalore. I believe it rained a bit last night. After some time our guide came and pick us to homestay. A warm welcome with tea/coffee and local food for breakfast was served later.
It’s a small settlement, more like a village, near the famous Jog Falls, or Talaguppa, in Shivamogga district. Lesser known than other tourist spots in Karnataka, Honnemaradu falls near the back waters of the Shravathi river, clearly and scenically overlooking the Linganamakki reservoir. This makes it an amazing getaway for nature lovers and weekend escapades, of course I added it into my offbeat itinerary for this trip. Besides, it gave way to the adventure I seek- in the form of some fun water sports like windsurfing and kayaking.
Picture-perfect sunsets and breathtaking beauty await those who travel through dusty unpaved roads to reach the stunning Honnemaradu. Located near the backwaters of Sharavathi River in Karnataka, Honnemaradu, the golden lake, is a hidden gem that is a treasure trove for adventure enthusiasts and outdoorsy travellers. Thick green trees, intense blue water and sand-coloured pebbles that twinkle in the light make Honnemaradu a divine weekend getaway.
