Western Ghats, popularly known as malnadu in Karnataka was truly an amazing experience. In order to get the true flavour of malnadu we decided to stay in a home stay. Amthi home stay close to agumbe and shringeri is situated in a village called kalkodu. People here treat you like you are their age old buddies,in the first meet itself!!
A typical malnadu style food and rich culture of this region is what attracted me and my hubby. Deserted from the fast life of a city without internet, television, or mobile signal (bsnl signal will be available) we just had all the time on earth to feel the fresh air and this was a kind of meditation. Refreshing and soothing experience.
If you are tired of your busy life and just want to have a change, want to be pampered, enjoy the lazy goose in you then you must definitely go to amthi!!!
PS: amthi is not for people who eat bread butter and pizza as their meal.
It is not even for those people who want to be put up in luxurious rooms just like you see in a five star hotel..
This is for people who want to enjoy the local flavour and culture of malnad
