Thursday Getaways: Seeta Nadi and Koodlu Teertha

Summer is the season for going out on treks and adventure camps. For the Manipal Student, there are many such places around, that can qualify for adventure camps. One such place is around 30 clicks from Manipal town called Hebri.

A magnificent waterfall – the water flow is much reduced during the summer though….

Location: The Someshwara wild life sanctuary is located around 4 kilometers from Hebri town and about 30 kilometers from Manipal.

The campsite has a lot of dorms, quite a few platform tents, and there is a farm house within 15 min walking distance. You can book the farmhouse for your night stay. The campsite also has some small nature walk trails with mild river streams crossing the trails.

White water rafting is an unbelievable experience. In order to promote eco-tourism, Jungle Lodges and Resorts, a State Government undertaking, in association with the Forest Department, is promoting adventure activities at the Seeta Nadi. If you trying it for the first time, don’t worry, expert personnel are there to guide you.

Sitanadi is excellent. I haven't been there in a year, since my first visit – but definitely up there with Kudremukh in terms of true forest/wilderness experience.
