Travel to Agumbe & experience the wilderness of this tropical rainforest. 

Agumbe located at a distance of around 380 km from Bengaluru is known as the 'Cherrapunji of South-India' & is said to receive the second highest rainfall in India. Being a part of the Someshwara wildlife sanctuary, this is a verdant land of lush jungles teeming with all kinds of wildlife. The many waterfalls & streams that dot Agumbe and its surrounding evergreen forests make it one of the best destinations for trekking & hiking in Karnataka. From treks in the wilderness to ancient forts to an amazing camping experience, this trip has it all and is the perfect weekend getaway from the bustle of city-life.

Is this trip right for you?

The camping sites we stay at are clean & well-maintained.  However, staying in tents, luxuries such as cots & beds, fans etc can't be expected. Part of the experience here is learning to be resourceful with the available facilities. 


Internet access is scarce and is unreliable when it's available. But you must know that though there's no WiFi in nature, you'll get a stronger connection 😜

This is a no-frills trip to a relatively remote place therefore food will be basic.
