The natural splendors of India are truly incredible, and nowhere is this beauty more apparent than in the state of Karnataka. Hill stations with awe-inspiring vistas, a mesmerizing array of cultural and historical heritage sites, and many sanctuaries dedicated to preserving nature and wildlife. It’s not surprising that Ralph Waldo Emerson, the great American transcendentalist said this about India: “There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won’t go. For me, India is such a place.”

For Aficionados of All Things History & Culture
Shivamogga is home to several sites of cultural and historical significance. Temples like the Amruteshvara temple, Kaitabheshvara temple, the Rameshwara temple in Keladi, and the Padmavathi temple Humcha are some of the best places to witness ancient India’s intricate architectural workmanship dating back to the 11th and 12th centuries, with influences from the Chalukyan empire. The Shivappa Nayaka Palace, standing on the banks of the river Tunga, is built almost entirely out of Rosewood and is a visual treat for the eyes.
Nature Lovers’ Paradise
Shivamogga is home to one of the highest waterfalls in the country, the Jog falls. You can witness the mighty Sharavathi river cascade down in one of the most picturesque spectacles India has to offer. Hike along to the top of the Kodachadri peak, and experience the sublime beauty of being in the very depths of nature. To get up close and personal with a plethora of birds and majestic wild beasts, head to the Bhadra wildlife sanctuary and the Tyavarekoppa Lion and Tiger safari. Culminate your excursion with a serene evening in the banks of the Tunga river, at the Sakrebyle Elephant Camp.
