Road trip Vignettes - Sharavathi Valley view

Plusses of a road trip is the freedom it gives to enjoy the journey at your own pace. Many times we have noticed that journeys are more interesting than the actual destination itself. When these vignettes are captured on the lens, they remain cherished memories forever. We will share some of these in our blog and hope you like it.

Driving in Western ghats is always a memorable experience. Whether you are driving during the monsoon or immediately after it, you will greeted by geerenery all around.

One of the lovely drives is from Bangalore to Goa is via Shivamogga and Jog Falls. The roads are good. The drive will give an opportunity to see magnificent Jog falls. Monsoon is the right time to visit Jog falls which will be at its glorious best. 

When you depart Jog falls and drive towards Honnavar, you will drive through Sharavathi wild life sanctuary. The road is through thick forest. As you drive listening to the sounds of Cicada, smelling the fresh air, you will be greeted with a fabulous valley of Sharavthi. The forest department has built a small watch tower which can be climbed easily to get a nice view of the valley. Here are few pictures of the valley we had clicked on the way to Goa in December last year.
