Shimoga District, Banglore (edit map)
Kanoor Kote is a secluded fort atop a mighty peak in the dense jungles of Western Ghats. All that remains of the fort are it’s dilapidated traces, but the lush green forests with the steep slopes surrounding the fort gives it the aura of mystery and a sinister charm. Though the fort has lost all it’s grandeur and is left in neglect for the most part, it provides a perfect spot to head for when on a trek, trying to get away from the noise and crowds of city life.
The lush green forests, blue skies as far as the eyes can see, and silence so resounding that you can hear your own breath, surely invites any heart wanting to loose itself in the lap of nature….during this trial you will walk along the vast paddy fields, crossing many hills whose peak offers beautiful view of valley. Thus is the beauty and attraction of this fort, forgotten by both man and time.
This region was known for sloth bears.

Dabbe Falls is a pristine waterfall near Hosagadde in Shimoga. This falls is deeply hidden in the mountains near Hosagadde. The trek route through the deep valley leads to the delightful Dabbe Falls. Hosagadde, 20 km from Kargal, is on the way to Bhatkal from Sagar via Talaguppa and Kargal, which is famous for the Jog falls.
