Agumbe Hill Station

 
 
     
 

Agumbe is tiny village near Tirthahalli in Karnataka’s Shimoga district. However, the little village shot into prominence many decades ago owing to its vantage point in the Western Ghats, at an estimated 826 metres, as well as for receiving the second highest rainfall in the country after Cherrapunjee. In fact, the village has earned the moniker as the second Cherrapunjee or Cherrapunjee of the South for this reason.

Agumbe has many other credits to its name. Primarily, it has a rich biodiversity because of its position in the Western Ghats in the Malnad area. It borders the Someshwara Wildlife Sanctuary, considered to be among the last surviving lowland rainforests in the country, and the Kudremukh National Park. It is here that the Agumbe Rainforest Research Station is location, which is the country’s only such research station. It is here that famous herpetologist Romulus Whitaker has done a lot of research on King Cobras. There is also a protected area for medicinal plants.

But for travellers, Agumbe is particularly special because of the many points from where one can get stunning views of the valley and even unhindered views of the Arabian Sea which is located almost 50 km away. But the best views are those of sunsets, at the Barkana View Point, especially from November to February when the sky is clear and the horizon is free of clouds and haze. In addition, other attractions near Agumbe include the Kunchikal falls which are formed on the river Varahi, the picturesque Barkana falls on the river Seetha, Onake Abbi falls and Jogigundi which is located deep in the forest and ideal for a picnic.
