Default A Drive through Chamadi Ghats

Dear All,

I am immensely delighted to share with you yet another travelouge, A journey through "Charmaadi" which is also a part of the Magnanimous
Western Ghats.
Indeed its trekkers paradise and very certainly for nature lovers.
Sumamry of our journey: Mangalore -> Charmadi-> Balehannu ->Charmadi->Mangalore

The excitement to drive thru the mighty ghats started as we were heading for Balehannur from Mangalore. Not many pics could be clicked on the way as we actually
had set out to get our cousine brother engaged. Just to mention here, Balehannur is a beautiful place as well. Your sure to live upto a 100 as the place
is quite remote and away from human intervension with nature.

On our way back , We the wild hogs quenched our thist with Charmadi. Like always the camera got busy.
We stopped only at places that caught our attention the most. Well !! every curve thru the ghats is simply mindblowing and tempting enough to stopby.

Unfortunatlely it was almost evening when we entered the ghats and therefore had to cross before it got dark.
There are many falls and beautiful water streams in charmadi that are just perfect wallpapers.
We missed them this time but surely, will try to hitch a ride again to uncover the deeper charmadi.

With this little note ill let the pictures do the talking.

Cheers

A close friend just drove back via Charmadi ghats last evening and was swearing by the condition of the road. Hopefully it holds for long this way.

HVK, you don't have to go thru Mudigere to go fom MLR-Balehonnur, Vice-versa.
Route is as follows - MLR-Charmadi-Kottigehara-Magundi-Balehonnur.
Heard kottigehara - Magundi is not in good condition.

Another route is MLR-Karkala-Kudremukha-Kalasa-Balehonnur

Hi Ranga,

Charmadi ghat is on the Mudigere to Ujire/Belthangady route. The details of the sector :

Bangalore-Hassan-Belur-Mudigere-Charmadi-Ujire-Belthangady-Mangalore.

The ghat between Sakleshpur and Mangalore is Shiradi Ghat.
