If you are looking forward to a short weekend getaway from Bangalore to relax and unwind, this quaint little town in the western ghats of Karnataka does just that for you! Surrounded by lush green coffee plantations and a spice garden with the views of many hills and valleys, the pristine ambiance of this place will take away all your worries. The sub-tropical climate and heavy rains during the rainy season have created an environment that has a wooded forest, clear streams and a variety of flora and fauna. This beautiful hill station is not only famous for its scenic beauty, amazing weather but also for its amazing trekking trails.

Join us for a relaxed weekend at Sakleshpur as we shall head out to explore the trails of Sakleshpur, visit the historical Manjarabad fort and the exquisite Abbi falls. The trek as we would like to call it, ” The Panoramic 360° view trek” is fairly simple and is about 3 hours. We walk along the jeep trails until we reach a narrow path that we ascend to further reach a wide clearing from where you’ll find a few smaller peaks which can be explored. We shall start Day-2 by visiting the beautiful Abbi falls which are nestled in the lush green between coffee estates. It is a popular tourist spot and is a 1km walk to the falls! Some small mountain streams and Brooks join together and the waterfalls from a small height of 35-40feet to form the enchanting Abbi falls. Next, we will explore the beauteous and magnificent Manjarabad fort, which is an 18th-century fort built by Tipu Sultan. This star-shaped Fort has a very picturesque appeal and it perfect to click pictures!

You shall be relaxing at a homestay which is located amidst coffee plantations giving you very relaxed vibes. A river flows by close to the homestay and you can chill alongside the riverbed. All in all, it’s a perfect place to unwind and get in touch with nature and yourself!

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!

Frequest Questions

  1. I have booked the trek when will I get further updates regarding the trek?
    Well, most of our treks are usually confirmed by Thursday and you would receive a BON VOYAGE mail that would contain details as regards Pickup Points ( Location and Timings ), Outdoor Leader ( Point of Contact ), Do’s, and Don’ts.
     
  2. Would I be added to a WhatsApp Group once the trek is confirmed?
    Yes, the Bon Voyage mail would contain a link for Whatsapp Group through which one can join and interact with fellow travelers and outdoor leaders.
     
  3. Do I have any other boarding points apart from the ones mentioned?
    Yes, we do have options for picking a traveler on board with a few locations provided they are on the route to our destination. The following are the same:
    - Croma Store, Sony World Signal
    - Trinity Circle Metro Station

    Well, you are in the mountains and none of our trails have a washroom facility during the trek.
