The popular yet less-crowded hill station in Karnataka flanked by the Western Ghats is Sakleshpur where there is something for everyone, from dense rainforest to derelict railway tracks for hiking, from historical temples to age-old fort and from mountain peaks to waterfalls.
For history buffs and architecture enthusiasts, Sakleshpur has the celebrated Manjarabad Fort which tells the tale of vigorous Tipu Sultan and the Bettada Bhairaveshwara Prasanna Temple along with Pandavar Gudda which has a mythological significance of the Pandavas staying here during exile.
With mountains come the excellent opportunity for moderately easy treks that take a few hours to reach the summits like the Agni Gudda, Jenukal Gudda, Ombattu Gudda and Pandavar Gudda.
Be it for the significant agricultural products or for the discovery of a jyotirlinga by the Hoysalas, the sleepy town Sakleshpura earned its name rightly as it is no less verdant than Ooty.
