Dodda Mane

You must be familiar with Malgudi days and Swamy? Well, then you would definitely remember Swami’s house in some of the episodes. Don’t be surprised when I tell you that the house still exists! Yes, it’s currently run as a home stay called Dodda Mane, managed by Kasturi akka. The house boasts of the rustic architecture from the old times and is a perfect place to stay. Not posh unlike many hotels, but akka’s hospitality makes you anchored to this place and that was the reason why we decided to go to Agumbe

Jogigundi Falls

This hill is in the Teerthahalli Taluk of Shimoga District and is above 3000 meters above sea level. This is a very challenging trek as the path up is surrounded by dense forests and rugged paths. This is a monolithic rock structure with a variety of outgrowth. On top of the hill is a Jain Settlement and is named after the Jain Teerthankara, Kundakundacharya who is said to have performed penace here. There is no place to stay on top of the hill and you will thus have to come back to Teerthahalli. The Monsoon season is not suitable for trekking due to slippery paths.

About Agumbe

Rich in scenic beauty and biodiversity, this peaceful little village is often called the Cherrapunji of the South, receiving almost as much rainfall as the real Cherrapunji of the North East region. Located in Shimoga, Karnataka, its rainforests are its trademark beauty and are home to several medicinal plants, mighty cobras and charming waterfalls, such as Jogigundi Falls, Barkana Falls, Koodlu Theertha Falls and Onake Abbi Falls. For a view of the stunning panorama of the sunset with the backdrop of the surrounding countryside and the Arabian Sea, Sunset Point is a must visit. For a beautiful walk down memory lane, visit the oldest and the most popular house in Agumbe, Dodda Mane, which was where the famous childhood television series, 'Malgudi Days', was shot. One can also enjoy delicious home cooked meals here and interact with the caretakers of this childhood treasure. Another place to visit is the ancient Gopala Krishna temple, which dates back to the reign of Hoysala Empire (10th-14th century). A visit to Agumbe Rainforest Research Station can prove to be highly educational for its world-class pioneering ecological studies, especially of the King Cobra, which are being put into practice for King Cobra management. Places to eat in Agumbe are limited, although apart from Dodda Mane, food can also be enjoyed near the Sunset Point at the Padiyar Restaurant. One can also enjoy delicious vanilla-flavoured tea at any of the tea stalls around this picturesque village.
