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 views of many hills and valleys, the pristine ambience 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 and amazing weather but also its fantastic trekking trails.

Join us for a relaxed weekend at Sakleshpur as we shall head out to explore the trails of Sakleshpur and 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 relatively simple and is about 3 hours. We walk along the jeep trails until we reach a narrow path that we ascend to reach a comprehensive clearing from where you’ll find a few smaller peaks that can be explored. We shall start Day 2 by visiting the beautiful Abbi falls, 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, an 18th-century fort built by Tipu Sultan. This star-shaped Fort has a very picturesque appeal!

You shall be relaxing at a homestay amidst coffee plantations giving you very relaxed vibes. A river flows 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!
