An overnight bus journey of 400 km commences from Bangalore to Sirsi. We shall have a brief orientation and a fun-filled ice-breaking session where you will get to know your fellow trippers. Leaders will give you a brief about the trip, so don't sleep early.
Upon arrival, you can freshen up and have breakfast. It is a 100-acres campus: with farms, forests, water streams and some caressed spots for sunsets. Let's take one wave at a time.
First, at 9:00 am, we will begin with a small trek covering the plantation and the Western Ghats forest to learn more about the place.
At 11:30 am, get ready to hit the bull's eye; air rifle shooting is arranged. After this, we will take a lunch break.
At 2 pm, we will spend some time at waterfalls and streams to beat the heat.
Freshen up with sips of tea and get ready to bowl up your stamina. As highlighted, this is the property of an army veteran. It's no surprise that he has arranged an army obstacle course. Imagine falling, crossing and winning over your fears. This obstacle race will test your strength, speed and agility. You will run, jump, dodge, crawl and swing to finish.
At 5:00 pm, we will go for a stunning sunset. Take a hike to the sunset point and spend some time there.
Late in the evening, from 7:00 pm, spend time amidst musical notes with a LIVE Performance by a band comprising of veterans like Kiran Ravichandran and Harsha Jade.
Later retire in your tents and get a cosy good night's winter sleep.
Early in the morning, at 8:00 am, the property manager will take us on Spice Plantation Tour. It is good to note that he has a degree in horticulture. Taking a tour with him is no less than watching National Geographic for 8 hours straight. He will show us the rarest trees, endangered plants, insects, bees and fruits. Also, you would be surprised to know how those tastiest spices are grown and cultivated.
Following this at 10 am, you can go for a game of Archery.
Then we will make our way to Muregar Falls at 11 am. It is a small hike on rocks. So, wear a slipper or shoes with a good grip. We will spend some time here and take a break. If you want, you can even jump inside the natural pool.
We shall have lunch after this and prepare to go to Bheemana Gudda. It is a beautiful sunset point that also gives breathtaking views of the Aghanashini Valley.
Later, we will depart for Bangalore. En route, we will stop for dinner.
