Udupi, June 13, 2013: Being a nature lover, the excitement to drive through the mighty ghats, the trekkers paradise, the Charmadi which is also a part of the Magnanimous Western Ghats on the 8th of June 2013 was one of best part of our journey from Kemmannu to Bangalore. All through the Charmadi, there were many falls and beautiful water streams that are just perfect wallpapers. The place is quite remote and away from human intervention with the mother nature. We stopped at places that caught our attention the most. Well !! every curve through the Ghats is simply mind blowing and tempting enough to stop by.

Charmadi (Tulu/Kannada:ಚಾರ್ಮಾಡಿ) is a village in Beltangady taluk of Dakshina Kannada district. It is one of the points in Western ghats through which motorable road passes connecting Dakshina Kannada with Chikkamagaluru district. The section of ghat is known by the name of Charmadi ghat. Nearest places are Charmadi village, Kottigehara and Banakal.

Charmadi Ghat Starts from Charmadi village(11 km from Ujire) and ends at Kottigehara(14 km from Mudigere). .Charmadi Ghats connect the western part of Dakshina Kannada district to Chikmagalur district and the prominent highway is connecting Ujire (9 km from Dharmasthala) to Kottigehara (about 50 km from Chikmagalur). Ballarayanadurga is a fort atop a hill located about 10 km from Sunkasale, on the Kottigehara - Kalasa route and from Kemmannu the distance is approximately 109 km.

Ballarayanadurga would be around 325 km from Bangalore. The route to take would be Bangalore - Hassan (190 km) - Belur - Chikmagalur (250 km) - Mudigere (280 km) - Kottigehara (300 km) - Sunkasale (315 km). (About 7 km from Kottigehara, you need to take a U turn towards your left - easy to miss the sign boards). At Sunkasale, the telecom office is to the left. Take the left immediately after that and follow the roads for about 8 km through an estate to reach the trekking trail to the top.

We will try to hitch a ride again to uncover the deeper Charmadi and with this note we will let the pictures do the talking.
