Chikmagalur: Into the rains

Chikmagalur: Into the rains

Honeyvale Home-stay

Walking in the rains through a lot of greenery, with slow moving mist for company – a heavenly experience indeed! When you are tired, sit under any of the many waterfalls along the way to refresh yourself instantly. Chikmagalur, a hill station located in Karnataka, is heavenly during rains. A bunch of friends and I have made it an annual affair to visit Chikmagalur during rains. We stop our vehicle en route, near the Charmadi ghat section, and walk up for an hour or two in the rains. We then get to one of the many home-stays and spend the night there (there are many British style bungalows amidst coffee estates that are now converted into home-stays. They welcome you with hot, spicy food too. Perfect for the rains). This time we halted at Honeyvale homestay, a huge bungalow that has a tree house to boot. If you want to get away from the maddening crowd and enjoy the full beauty of monsoon, Chikmagalur is the place to go.
