This homestay is located in a coffee estate at Sakleshpur, Karnataka and is a four hours’ drive from downtown Bangalore. It is ensconced in the valleys of the Western Ghats covered by evergreen tropical forest and is truly a nature lovers paradise. It offers breathtaking views of the majestic ghats from every twist and turn of pathways leading to nature’s pristine glory.
Homestay is blessed with spectacular views during different seasons, be it: the multicolored canvas draped over the Charmadi ghats at the time of sunset in summers, the westerly winds bringing along clouds and rains through the valley during monsoons, or the fog which covers the landscape in the late afternoons during winters.
