Kemmangundi (53 km from Chikmagalur)

Published Date: 09-May-2024

At an elevation of 1434m, Kemmangundi once acted as the summer getaway for Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV. A paradise for nature lovers, this hill station is surrounded by the Baba Budangiri Range and is a delightful concoction of mountain streams, untamed greenery, gently undulating valleys and ornamental gardens. You can soak in unforgettable sunsets from Raj Bhavan or go for a steep trek to reach Z Point if you want to watch the sun come up. From Z Point, you can also photograph the Western Ghats in all its panoramic glory, while a cool breeze kisses your face. No wonder, it is counted as one of the best places to visit in Chikmagalur for 2 days.
