About our day trip to Bisle Ghat:
We started around 7AM from Bangalore and sizzling drizzle also joined with our journey tale.
Around 1PM while enjoying the drive, we lost our way for around 5KMs and missed to check Google map and sign board when we were busily engaged and got lost in the nature and anthakshari. As we always say, it’s good to get lost in the right direction, we landed in a small mutt and friends decided to give a visit to that place which was located indie the coffee plantation.
We met a swamiji who has travelled to more than 20 countries and he said he will offer coffee as we have driven a long way and it was raining. While chatting with him within 20 minutes the family members served us yummy hot home food with humble and with a great smile. The kids also very kind enough to provide warm water for hand wash , serving food and they were happy to host us. Our stomach alone was not full, our heart and soul was also was filled with happiness to get such warmth inside the forest area.
Throughout the journey the road condition was really good except a few places for a stretch of 500mts.
Finally, we reached the Bisle Ghat view point and claimed the well maintained steps.
The moment we reached the viewpoint, we all astonished to see the fog across the western ghat mountains range.
One can relish the very long Giri river which flows in the mountain range, when the fog and clouds play hide and seek game. Ofcourse we will also get hidden when these clouds passes us when while watching this at the view point.
Many waterfalls come alive during the monsoon and it’s a visual treat to travel during monsoon to Bisle Ghat.
The pleasure of journey enhances when we cross the lush green farmlands, dense thick green forest, picturesque villages and old fashioned houses, winding roads and plenty of water streams cross our travel path! What else we need during the journey with a mild favourite music, drizzle and gurgle of water flow?
Bisle Ghat is also famous for trekkers.
Other attractions :
Mallayhalli Waterfalls, Mookanmanay waterfalls, Manjarabadh fort, Kaginhare
Stay : Homestays available near the view point and people can cover the other attractions also by planning a 2 days trip.
We took a different route to cover Shettihali church during monsoon, and reached back to Bangalore with loads of fine memories by 10PM.
Best time to Visit Bisle Ghat is during and after monsoon
