From Pandavar Gudda or the Betta Byraveshwara Temple, you can trek to Jenukallu Peak, the second-highest in the state. Also known as ‘honey stone mountain’ or “Hodachalli”, Jenukal Trek of 8 kilometres will challenge your skill and treat you with the coffee plantations, green woods and the views of the Arabian Sea and the peaks namely Sheshaparvata, Kumara Parvata and Ettina Bhuja.
Jenukallu, Jenukal or Jenkal Gudda is 40 kilometres from Sakleshpur and from Betta Byraveshwara Temple, your round trip trek will take more or less 4-5 hours. the initial ascent is gradual and therefore, easy to walk along while the final stretch requires proper skill as it is very steep including a number of narrow paths running through rocky terrain with vertical fall on another side. Avoid climbing during monsoon as these paths especially become very tricky and risky, same goes for the Deepadha or Diggallu Kallu clubbed with the Jenukal Betta that remains shrouded in thick mist resulting in low visibility.
