Long Weekend Adventure TripLocal Treks Events In Bangalore Weekend Getaways
What's This About?
How about we ditch the mainstream touristy places and literally take a walk in nature to breathe it's fresh air while marveling at the scenic beauty? We are also talking about a long weekend road trip !!
We bring to you a three day getaway from the city to the mountainous ranges of the Western Ghats which is a treasure house of biodiversity and includes a variety of flora and fauna. The monsoons are considered the best time to visit. Included are the Kodachadri trek, the famous Jog Falls, and the beautiful Sharavati Valley. Kodachadri is nestled deep in the Western ghats and is a combination of lush green meadows, jungle trails, cascading waterfalls, and the view of the scattered clouds from above the peak. The jog falls being the tallest waterfalls of India is a sight to behold. The western ghats give rise to the Sharavati river which falls from a height of 829 feet to form the four majestic cascades Raja, Rani, Roarer, and Rocket. The Sharavati valley also located in the Western ghats lets you indulge in the luscious flora and fauna. Lastly, we shall also visit the temples of Devagange, Ikkeri, and Kelladi. As a part of promoting local travel, we have come up with a few places which not only take you back in time while exploring the ancient architecture and temples. A small natural stream flows into the horse-shoe shaped valley which forms the ponds at Devagange. Ikkeri and Keladi are historical villages a few kms down from Sagara. Whilst being the capital during the reign of the Keladi/Ikkeri Nayakas, it has a temple complex built in the Hoysala-Dravidian style of architecture which is both intricate works as well as beautiful.
We are keeping in mind and adhering to all the safety regulations and precautions to be taken as per the government against COVID 19.

About Your Hosts
Plan The Unplanned
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!
