Karnataka is truly ‘One state. Many worlds’, isn’t it? That’s exactly why we have now come up with a plan to transport you to one of the other worlds.

Known as the ‘Capital of Malenadu’, Shimoga is one of relatively less explored nature getaways in Karnataka. The word ‘Shimoga’ is the distorted version of ‘Shiva Moga’, which means ‘Shiva’s face’. This region was also home of the celebrated Kannada Rashtrakavi, Kuvempu. Agumbe is a biodiversity hotspot and the habitat for several endemic species of Western Ghats, including the flagship species, the King Cobra. 

Date: 29th March to 31st March, 2024
Price: INR 15,000 + 5% GST
