Life is elusive within the 4 walls, but can be simplified at the outskirts of Bandaje Waterfalls in the Charmadi Ghat section in Western Ghats Forest. Situated near Ujire Town in South Karnataka, Bandaje Arbi Falls exclaims the foggy ambience with the green all around.
The travel enthusiasts group will begin their excursion from Bandaje village for this total 16km up & down trek. The innocence and calmness of the village will steal your heart. You will move past several water streams as the trail becomes steeper and forest wears denser fauna. During the misses and spots of several wild creatures, you will never know when you reached at the grassland to have the first glimpse of the waterfalls. You will cross Bandaje River after climbing on the difficult inclined surface to come on the flat ground and voila, you are near the waterfalls.
The imageries of enigmatic path will fade out in background music formed by the water hitting the rock from the height or around 200 ft. You can relax here and have a shower in the falls. After the evening snacks, the campfire will be set for you to have an experience to live the night under the starry sky. The golden sunrise would look charismatic in the morning, whispering to wake up in life. The down trek will follow the same path to reach at your base camp in Bandaje village. Here, your ride to Bangalore will be ready.

Usually most services provide just trekking packages but I love to use Escape2Explore because there are various packages where we get more than just treks. This particular package is a great example of a great combination. A thrilling trek is included in this plan and the place is worth every penny you spend on it. Apart from the trek, the package also includes visit to a serene waterfall that is nearby. At a price of Rs. 3100, I am sure a lot of people would opt for this just because the package is so affordable. We were around 7 people in total and each one of us loved it. We were taken care of by the team of Escape2Explore throughout the journey. Whenever we needed something, someone from the team would be available without fail. They always ensured that our needs are met which is what I liked the most about them. It is very difficult to manage such a huge troop but they did it very efficiently. more...
