Located between Coorg and Chikmagalur— Karnataka’s more famous weekend getaways— Sakleshpur is permanently swathed in robes of emerald and jade. Its slopes are filled with Arabica & Robusta coffee plantations, gorgeous waterfalls, and trekking routes to suit all abilities. For those who like to spend vacations reading, dozing off, and living the life of a bean bag.

The terrain is typical of the Western Ghats and presents an exciting challenge for beginners as well as advanced off-roaders.
While you can do your own exploring, there are tracks that have alr
