We did not visit the shrine. But the ride was scenic and the views from here and further on from the drop point for Manikyadhara falls were worth it.

While planning from Chikkamaguluru to this, you can include the places like Mullayanagiri Hills, sitalayangiri, kavikalgandi, honnamma devi fallls and then finally reach Baba Budangiri temple. On the way you will find an awesome view points, do stop there

The roads are quite narrow and in certain places in the climb tourist cars, rental cabs are parked on both sides of the Ghat roads making navigation and climb precarious. Chikmagalur tourist department needs to ensure Ghat roads are not blocked like it was when we climbed to visit Baba budanagiri.

This is a beautiful mountain range of the Western Ghats. We mainly went to see Neelakurinji which had bloomed in this range during the 2022 season. There are 2 deviations on the hill station - one takes you to Mullayanagiri and Seethalayanagiri and the other takes you to the BB hills.

On the way to BB hills, you will first come across Honnammana Halla falls. You could see this from your vehicle itself. After this, you will come to a spot from where it will lead you to Jhari falls. You will need to board a jeep (queue basis, first come first serve) to go to Jhari falls (about 3 km inside). You can also walk to the falls if you can but cannot go by your vehicle.

As you proceed, you will reach the place where the mosque and temple are there. Park your vehicle and get down a few steps to reach there. After the darshan climb back to the car parking area and from here again you will have 2 deviations - one to Ghalikere and another one to Mankiyadara falls.
We went during weekends and especially during Neelakurinji flower time hence it was overcrowded. To go to Mankiyadhara falls (not a great fall though), we were asked to take a jeep (not sure if you can by your vehicle itself or maybe if it is a small car they might allow since the roads are too narrow) which again takes you to a higher level and on the way to Mankiyadhara falls is where Neelakurinji was there. The entire mountain range was painted in purple-blue hues. You will be dropped close to the falls and to reach the falls again you need to get down by a few steps to see it. On the way, there are jaw-dropping viewpoints that are difficult to miss. Once you see the falls, walk and come to the Neelakurinji meadows - an extremely beautiful sight to behold. Once done, take the jeep (you can take any empty jeep) and return to the parking area. Jeep charges were overpriced maybe due to peak flowering season but it is worth seeing the scenic beauty!!!

On the hill station, food options are limited to just snacks. For meals as such pack your own food.

Better avoid on weekends as the traffic was moving at a snail's pace. And since the hill station roads are extremely narrow it feels too jammed and you will be stressed out driving the vehicle.

If you are still visiting on weekends, do not plan to stay in the city. Better book hotels/homestays that are available on the hill station.

Baba budangiri is hill with beautiful landscape. This year (2022) is the year where you can witness Neelakurinji flowers which blooms once in 12 years. Landscape is spreaded across with these flowers. Looks amazing. Road is good to reach this space. You will find small water falls on the way to Baba budangiri. This place is around 1 hour journey from Chikmagalur. Absolutely worth to visit.

This place is very sacred as it's the resting place of Baba Budaan and Daata Hayat Kalander. The view from the top is awesome . A great picnic spot .

It was such a beautiful experience to do ‘mountain hopping’ after a long era of being in a ‘city-arrest’ phase during the lockdown! Had been there in the evening and I believe its the best time to visit and see the beautiful sunset amidst the clouds! We parked our car at the entry and trekked to one of the peaks from where one could hop in to adjoining cliffs comfortably(you could also take your car uphill)! A lovely place to be at, it is around an hour’s drive from Chikmagalur town.
