On a lazy Sunday , planned on the short ride from udupi to Yana , it's around 200 kms from.udupi and ride is bit tricky as the highway is under repair and expansion.
Yana is a spiritual place as well as a adventure heaven, Yana caves is situated in between the forest which results in climbing the forest. The distance to the top is around 2kms , and the difficulty level is easy.
There is enough refreshments available on the top along with the temple.hence there is no issueof stocking up.
The temple in the top is dedicated to bhairaveshwara, the water from the hill falls on the linga as well.
There is two hills , one is bhairavaveshwara and mohini , the stone is of black colour due to the ash of the demon.
Yana is a place of bats , one can see many habitats inside the caves and unfortunately we did not come across , but we could hear the bats though .
As for adventure , the caves offers the adventurer a dose of adventure in exploration but one should also ensure no bats or natural habitat is effected.
After reaching top of the hill, the magnificent Yana is such a sight to look at , it's Magnus opus of God's , it's such a beautiful sight , one cannot explain in words.
In remembrance of the place I did bought a souvenir from the temple as well.
All in the end it's a good place to spend a day after the hectic ride .
