An important place you can trek to is the Z-point located close to Kemmanagundi.
3. Jog Falls
The second highest waterfall in India is the Jog falls located in Shivmogga district. For people from the bustling city, who want to take a one or two-day vacation, this would be perfect as Shivmogga offers pocket-friendly accommodation. And of course, it is a mountainous range so you can enjoy nature with the view of a serene yet majestic waterfall.
Besides hilly areas, if you want water bodies to surround you for the weekend, Gokarna is your go-to place. With numerous beaches, both public and private, you couldn’t have asked for a better place to unwind and relax. What is different about Gokarna is that it isn’t so commercial because the locals make constant efforts to keep the authenticity of their culture intact.
For a hardcore forest type of vacation, you should visit Dandeli. It boasts a huge wildlife sanctuary and is home to wild animals like black panthers and elephants.
