Narasimha Parvatha

A journey to Rain Land

Overview

      Agumbe, at an altitude 826m, is a small village in the Shimoga district of Karnataka. This is the same enthralling location which offered an idyllic setting for R.K Narayan’s Malgudi Days. Agumbe is famous for its spectacular sunsets and also its numerous trekking paths which are truly breathtaking. The forests of Agumbe are home to rare species of animals like tigers, leopards, lion tailed macaques, Sambar, malabar giant squirrel, barking deer and a host of other flora and fauna. It is also home to the King Cobra, the largest venomous snake in the world. Agumbe receives the highest rainfall in South India which makes it the ‘Cherrapunji of the South’. Narasimha Parvatha is the tallest peak in the Agumbe range of the Western Ghats and is about 1,152m (3,780 ft) high. End your trek at Kigga, a small village at the fringes of the forest, at the foot Narsimha parvatha, with a refreshing bath in Siri mane falls.
