    Journey to the heart of Malnad!

Whether you are a solo woman traveller or looking for a getaway with your child, this is for you, as long as you love children!

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 Malenaadu’, 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’. The city lies of the banks of the river Tunga and receives copious rainfall during monsoons.
