The South India region
Sakaleshpura is a hill station town and headquarter of Sakleshpura Taluk in Hassan district in the South Indian state of Karnataka.
The town lies in the Malnad region on the magnificent hills of the Biodiversity hotspot, the Western Ghats. It has a temperate climate surrounded with lofty green hills full of Coffee, Cardamom, Pepper and Areca Plantations . These crops which contribute mainly to the economy of the Taluk are grown in the surrounding villages and entire taluk are brought to Sakleshpura city for sale. The town lies on National Highway 75 (old NH-48) which connects coastal cities of Mangalore in the west to Chennai in the east via Bangalore the capital city of Karnataka.
The town itself makes for a pleasant halfway stop for travellers along National Highway 75—being the apex town in a long trail of road beginning in Bantwal near Mangalore, winding its way up the Western Ghats. As such, the town is often swathed in mist as the cool temperate surroundings are met with warm air from the coastal lowlands. The exit highway is equally picturesque with tall hedges lining both sides of the road, enclosing coffee groves within.
Sakleshpura is located in the Western Ghats, a mountain range that stretches from Kerala to Gujarat. The southern range, which includes Bisle reserve forest and the region around Sakleshpur is listed as one of the 18 most diverse spots in the world in terms of flora and fauna. The sub-tropical climate and heavy rains during the wet season create an environment where several unique plant and animal species flourish. With people of Sakleshpur being very hospitable, the tourism industry is increasingly embracing the Bed & Breakfast model and now offers several choices for a weekend getaway.
Green Route is a well known segment along the Bangalore and Mangalore railway line in India, within the pristine part of Western Ghat mountain ranges often called the trekker's paradise.
This is the segment on the railway track from Sakaleshpura to the Kukke Subramanya Road station. This is a unique beautiful spot in the whole railway track because of the dense green forest in which it is situated. This stretch of the track with length about 52 km has around 50 tunnels and bridges with length varying from few metres to 0.75 km and height varying from few metres to 200 meters. The tunnels are absolute terrestrial abyss.
This is one of the most picturesque spot (route) in the Western Ghats of the South Kanara and Hassan districts of Karnataka.
