Its a beautiful location to visit in Karnataka, especially if you are touring northern Karnataka. The rock structure is unlike anything I have seen till now. Looks 'alien' since there is nothing remotely resembling this in the vicinity. Its a monolith rock and there are...More

One of the beautiful places in U.Kannada, well maintained roads. The vehicles need to be parked 500-700 mtr away from rocks. A quality forest, complete shaded road. The facility by tourism dept is Mind-blowing.

It's literally an "Alien" rock structure in the middle of a dense forest. The reason I'm mentioning alien, is because, nowhere near it, in the entire dense forest around it, do you find anything else like this. It's a must visit place. There is a...More

It requires quite some walking to do... Good place to visit.. There are 2 approaches to this place. The one from Sirsi - Kumta road requires 1-2kms of walk to reach. The nearest is from Siri-Gokarna road. The road conditions were not that great.

The cave is a volcanic formation. It looks like an architectural building from far. The rock formations are so mesmerising. Walk for some 2-3km from the parking and then you reach tha cave. There is a small temple under the cave. You can go inside...More
