Trek to Hebbe falls and Visit to chikmagalur

After hectic schedules, weekend breaks gives you such a wonderful feeling. Isn’t it? Last weekend, we trekked to Hebbe falls Chikmaglur. It was a splendid trek path; a great stress buster indeed.

Greenery everywhere and beautiful rivulets impending; to add to those were tender coconuts to quench our thirst made the trek even more exciting.

It was evening by the time we finished our trek. We went back to Chikmagalur district from the place we trekked and found some accommodation which was not so good yet acceptable. We were tired and hungry and all we knew is we had to get some good sleep along with some good food and we were successful in getting both.

The next day, we decided to visit Datta Peeta a cave that has a Hindu god and a Darga in the same spot.

We continued our journey further to visit a small waterfall called “Manyaka Dhara” few kilometers away. The water falls continuously but it is said that the origin of the waterfall is still a mystery.


An interesting belief was that once the devotees bathe in this waterfall, they leave behind one item of their clothing after having a bath. The picture indicates the chunk of clothes all over. The place where people worship was very untidy. This is a belief that is said to bring goodness.

Is ‘Cleanliness’ apt in this scenario? Or must I say Cleanliness Vs Godliness?
Not sure what needs to be said in this regards but undoubtedly Belief supersedes fundamental lessons learnt.


It was a wonderful experience to spend the weekend in a pleasant manner.

It’s a must to visit the place for sure.
