This place is a good choice during summer time as it has got enough destinations for different types of activities. Food, sight-seeing and shopping Mulayanagiri and Kempanagundi will give you different types of experience. One for the breath taking view and the other will be a good mountain driving experience throught the dense forest reserve. Activities & things to do Hiking, rafting, fishing. Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc. There are two options, one via Hasan (NH48) and the other via Tumkur (NH206). The later is absolutely terrible as roads are severly bad and your car will be wasted.
