Travellers Best Choice 2021 – Trip Advisor

If you are looking forward to a short weekend getaway from Bangalore to relax and unwind, this quaint little town in the western ghats of Karnataka does just that for you! Surrounded by lush green coffee plantations and a spice garden with the views of many hills and valleys, a trek to Sakleshpur will take away all your worries. The sub-tropical climate and heavy rains during the rainy season have created an environment that has a wooded forest, clear streams, and a variety of flora and fauna. This beautiful hill station is not only famous for its scenic beauty, amazing weather but also for its amazing trekking trails. 

Join us for a relaxed weekend as we head out to explore the trails of Sakleshpur, visit the historical Manjarabad fort and the exquisite Abbi falls. The trek as we like to call it, ” The Panoramic 360° view trek” is fairly simple and is about 3 hours. We walk along the jeep trails until we reach a narrow path that we ascend to further reach a wide clearing from where you’ll find a few smaller peaks which can be explored. We shall start Day-2 by visiting the beautiful Abbi falls which are nestled in the lush green between coffee estates. It is a popular tourist spot and is a 1km walk to the falls!  Some small mountain streams and Brooks join together and the waterfalls from a small height of 35-40feet to form the enchanting Abbi falls. Next, we will explore the beauteous and magnificent Manjarabad fort, which is an 18th-century fort built by Tipu Sultan. This star-shaped Fort has a very picturesque appeal and it perfect to click pictures! 

You shall be relaxing at a homestay which is located amidst coffee plantations giving you very relaxed vibes. A river flows by close to the homestay and you can chill alongside the riverbed. All in all, it’s a perfect place to unwind and get in touch with nature and yourself!

PTU is really good option for solo plans also. Well managed. Specially Thanks to leads Vaibhav, Gautham & Akshay for making this trip easier.

“An amazing experience and very adventurous.
This is one of the most challenging treks I have been to ,as there is quite a bit of walking and other challenges due to the monsoon season, but at the end of it, it’s definitely worth it.
What helped me overcome these challenges were the trek guides (Naveen, Gurpriya and Adith) of PTU and the friends I’ve made in this short span of time.
The home stay was good, the food provided was simple and very delicious.
I wish I could provide cons as well for this trek but I couldn’t find any, there are only positive moments to take away from this and so much to learn from each and everyone if you chose to learn more.
