All About It

Every travellers' card covers landscapes of all types: mountains, rivers, beaches, forests, etc. And while others are easy to find, we tend to think that rainforests in India are reserved only for the North-Eastern region, and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Or, maybe not! Agumbe, or "The Cherrapunji of the South", is a settlement located in the Shimoga district of Karnataka. If you are looking for a green, happy and wild break, this Agumbe Onake Abbi Trek is ringing you for sure. 

Lying in the arms of Western Ghats and at a distance of 380 km from Bengaluru, Agumbe is a beautiful, evergreen rainforest that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Famous among photography, wildlife and nature enthusiasts, it is precisely a mix of history, culture, nature trails and incessant rains, with a slight tinge of adventure. It is a journey where you can spot wild animals like Sambhar, Civet Cat, Leopard; trek to the offbeat Onake Abbi Falls; spend a good old time in Malgudi Days Home; visit 9th-century Kavaledurga Fort; visit Kundadri Hills. Agumbe is also famous for its cottage industry, medicinal plants, subsistence farming, and Agumbe Rainforest Research Station. Surprisingly, King Cobra is Agumbe's flagship species; hence, keep an eye on the slithering, hissing and puffing reptile.   

There are too many things to experience and see here. We invite you to a world that is pristine and untouched, unexplored and untamed: Come to life in the dense jungles of Agumbe. Here is a detailed itinerary of Agumbe Onake Abbi Trek prepared by Plan the Unplanned for an extraordinary experience!

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops?

This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited

They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day!

Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.

Well now that the wanderlust has kicked in and you can already see a vacation in your nearest future, here’s what we have to offer!
