Hi Ravi,

Lovely thread! This is like a glossary of 'little known places in Karnataka'. I really enjoyed your simplistic way of putting things while ensuring all relevant details are provided. Some of these places are surely on my radar now!

Keep posting, and we will keep drooling!

Cheers

I cant say more - I am deep down envious with you Ravi. Karnataka is beautiful, and mostly the areas around Shimoga, Sagar, Sirsi has got to my head. You really have done a wonderful help for all of us....

Now I don't know how to force my wifey to get some leaves and kids out of school to visit these places May be show I just show them your thread and the cool photos.

Thank you everybody for the mention.

Hi Rriju, We have visited Vihangama May 1st week, its very neat and clean place to stay and relax. One can visit many places from there including their boat ride to cave sort of place in tunga river. We stayed there for one night and in the morning taken boat ride to cave sort of area in river. Resort (home stay) is very neat and clean with excellant food. I guess Lukeskywalker has also visited there.

You can find more details I have put in thsi thread page 4, http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/822163-post57.html

Regards,.

Ravi.

Once I had Lakkavalli forest rest house booked but could not make the trip due to last moment changes. I would like to go in summer and spend at least more than a couple of days, I have heard a lot about the forest and hoping I get to see tiger during that time

I agree with Lohit and can imagine how much pleasure those roads would give on a bike ride!!
How to book the lakkavali forest rest house?
Can you give numkbers / address?
You can buz me on private or you can email me

Ravi.
Next time your kids want to see fish, take them on a fishing trip from karwar fishing harbour
I shelled out 2000 bucks for a 3 hour trawling trip, caught half ton of jelly fish, one sea snake, 3 kg of tiger prawns, lot of other fish I left with boat man. He was like dubm struck asking you dont want the fish??? He couldnt understand why anyone would pay money to go fishing
Picture of karwar fishing here

Well, previously Lakkavali guest house was under direct forest dept control. Now JLR has taken over. I want to visit Bhadra without JLR. Sometimes the simple forest rest house offers much more than a JLR
Best regards

Mangalore is 250km away from our native place, having visited that area many times we couldnot visit few temples there. So we decided this time to pay the visit. I wanted to see how it feels travelleing in Diesel vehicle for 3 days especially my daughter and family.

We left Ankola at 7AM on dec. 28th 2008 and our first break is at Kiru Mantralaya near Byndoor. Took Darshan and ate Kotte Idlys we made from home. Thankfully NH17 is relaid and scorpio sailed very smooth in bad stretches as driver( he is owner of that scorpio) did good job in driving.

Many big bridges in NH17

We reached Udupi by 12 noon and after visiting Krishan Math and temples we headed to Woodlands for lunch. Quiet ok lunch we enjoyed and then we travelled via manipal - karkala - Beltangadi - Ujjire - Dharmasthala. On the way we visited our relative houses and this helped us to take a break too in between. Very good road all the way!! After completing darshan at Dharmastala and we headed to SUN Rock for night stay which is near Beltangadi.

End of day1. Sorry for less picture as this was family Pilgrimage travel rather than enjoying the TRIP.

Places visited: Kiru Mantralaya, Aane Gudde Temple, Udupi, Dharmashtala.

Regards,

Ravi.

Default Day 2 of pilgrimage trip around mangalore

Day 2 we got up at 6AM and had cold water bath as no hot water available in there in early morning. The place we stayed is near Jamalabad Fort. My relative said they arrange guide to trekk that huge HILL. Very nice place although lodge is not so attracting.

Its just 10:30AM so we had planty of time to visit Ediyoor Math near Kasargodu. We called the Math and it associates welcomed us as my father know them very well. We travelled via Jalsoor (near sulliya) narrow good road again. Once we enter Kerala road improbved very much all the way it was very good road.

Had very good tasty prasada lunch in Math and took blessings from Shri Shri Ediyoor Math Swamiji and chatted with them for a while. Although they insisted us to stay there for over night as Yakshagana mela was going on but father had urgent work next day in school we decided to start around 3PM. Paid one more respect to Math and we started our journey to Mangalore via Vitla. NH17 via Manjeshwara was blocked due to some local strike so took alternate route.

Now next destination is Kudroli Temple. Around 5:30PM we reached there and its very neatly maintained. Visited all parts of the temple and offered respect and prayer to GOD as usual.

Because of good planning and local contacts we could visit the places easily and spent valuable time in holy places

May GOD Bless every one!

Ravi.
