Day 1

So the plan was set and me along with 2 friends confirmed for the trip. Initially we thought of going in Our own bikes but dropped the plan. We hired a self drive car from Zoom car.

We have started our journey early in the morning from Bangalore. We have taken the Mangalore highway which is a 4 lane road. We reached the town of Chikmangaluru around 12 pm.

We have stopped at a beautiful restaurant named as Siri coffee for refreshments.The sculpture at this restaurant was very attractive and all passing by people made a pit stop at this place.

It was already 2 Pm and without wasting our time we started our journey towards Kallahatti waterfalls(Kallathigiri). This is a Ghat road and careful driving required as it passes through very narrow roads and villages.

We stopped at multiple places watching the view points.

Day 2

We started our journey towards our next destination that is Kemmannagundi Krishnarajendra Hill Station. The road leading to this place is very bad shape full of rocks. Vehicles are allowed till the Restaurant which is starting point of hill.We parked the vehicle and started trekking towards the view point ( Z point). The trekking to Z point is little narrow path and need to be little careful as it is a dense forest. The view from the Z point is really amazing. We have come across one more waterfalls that is Shanti waterfalls. As per local people this waterfalls comes from dense forest having natural medical values to it. Their is Hebbe waterfalls which is nearby to this place and need to hire a Forest department Jeep.
