Say ‘Hello’ to the feisty River Sharavathi!
The majestic Sahyadri mountain ranges are sure to leave you spellbound! River Sharavathi, which originates and flows entirely within the state of Karnataka in India, flows through only two districts — Shimoga and Uttara Kannada — before joining the Arabian Sea. Teeming with natural beauty, Sharavathi Adventure Camp, with its verdant valleys, gushing rivers, and a dense forest cover, is a treasure trove of rare flora and fauna.
The Sharavathi Adventure Camp is a haven for those seeking peace and tranquillity by virtue of its ideal location to experience the quintessential magic of the monsoons. During nature walks, amidst bird songs, you get to savour the pristine calm of the wilderness.
Located at less than 6 KM from the famous Jog Falls, Sharavathi Adventure Camp combines the magnificence of the plush mountains with a dash of adventure. Tucked away on the slopes of a hillock skirting the Talakalale Reservoir, this resort is a great place to be in awe of Mother Nature. The River Sharavathi plummets from a dizzying height of 830 feet, creating the Jog Falls, one of India’s tallest waterfalls. The rainy season is the best time to view Jog Falls when it gushes down as four distinct cascades – Raja, Rani, Rocket, and Roarer.
The Sharavathi Adventure camp has twenty spacious and comfortable cottages. The cottages are climate-proof, with tiled roofs and an intelligently designed two-walled interior – an inner brick wall with an outer laterite stone wall helps regulate the temperature of the interiors to keep them warm and cosy. All the cottages overlook the Talakalale Reservoir and offer beautiful vistas.
Spacious cottages ensure you have a comfortable stay in the wilderness. All the cottages overlook the Talakalale Balancing Reservoir and offer beautiful vistas of the islands that dot the reservoir. Of course, all your comforts are taken care of.
