Last Village Trial Expeditions
Get to experience forest village Chengadi, 6 km half road trail in an open jeep/tractor, inside the nature forest and reach the top of villages. Only 20 to 30 houses are scattered above the hill, with enthralling views of the forest. You can see the bonding between villagers and wildlife like elephants, who live lively in the woods without harming each other. This village is in the Kingdom of 'Hoysala,' which is the rich cultural peak of Karnataka history.
