Hello Dear's, After my 4 successful organized adventures in meetup, here i am back with another adventure in sharavati's-trek to 3 Major Waterfalls-Unexplored, the reason behind choosing this particular season is to have a full fledged view of the waterfalls, so ppl interested can join me in exploring these unexplored jungle waterfalls.

 

Info about the place:

The Sharavathi Valley:- The Sharavathi river valley nestled in the central Western Ghats, Shimoga district has been an ecological paradise. The Sharavathi River, rising at Ambuthirtha in Thirthahalli taluk flows north-west and drops down in the Ghats at the world famous Jog falls. The sharavathi Valley is home for many water falls and to some of the beautiful streams. The valley is evergreen to semi-evergreen forest along with moist deciduous type of forests dominate the entire basin along with scrub savannah, grasslands, marshy areas and plantation of acacia, cash crops like areca and rubber providing diverse niches for a variety of taxa.

    On my first trek with meetup group arranged by Shravan, every conversation I heard "But man... Sharavathi was awesome".
    I wanted to see what Sharavathi is, and I got a chance.

    2 days with 30KM walk in full fledged lush green Dense rain Forest + Limited visibility to walk + Continues Heavy Rain + Beautiful view points covered with fog
    + amazing unexplored water falls inside the forests + stay in tribal house + and a awesome group of 13 members..
    I couldn't wish for anything more.. Sharavathi is one of the most beautiful place. This is my 2nd trek through meetup organized by "The Cool" Shravan. Thank you so much Shravan for arranging such a adventures trek.
