Serenity is just a trek away 19.2.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A journey along the curvy mountainous roads of the south-western districts of Karnataka is loved by many explorers because of the picturesque views and serene landscape. Acknowledging the very possibilities, and with an ambition to connect a little deeper with nature, we set out on a trek to what is famed to be one of the most beautiful and most difficult trekking spots in Karnataka: Charmadi Ghat. Dinesh Holla, a well-known naturalist who has been striving hard to protect the Western Ghats ecosystem for decades, was the trekking guide we had sought for all the right reasons. Planning a trek in the Charmadi region, which is a part of the Western Ghats, requires much more than just enthusiasm, due to the dense forest and high peaks. And a day within the Charmadi Ghat and the Jenukallu range, under scorching sun and frequent shades granted by the thick canopy of the rainforest, gave us a glimpse of what it means to be close to nature. Hills and legends Our trek began at a spot, around 25 km from ...
