Kissing the clouds in Kundadri Hills

Kundadri is a nice sunset point some 20 kms from Agumbe in Shimoga district. On top of Kundadri lies a Jain temple and a pond. More importantly, if you reach on top of Kundadri, you can see the clouds from so close. Sometimes clouds will be allover the hilltop,engulfing people- that way you can experience what it feels to be inside a cloud.

Below are some photos of the Kundadri hills and the jain temple there

On a rainy day, the sky will be much more cloudy than I could capture here

 View from top

Road to Kundadri is very narrow, ideal only for small vehicles. Road is steep and has sharp turns. The view from top is all worth it. Aria took us all the way up and down and I enjoyed the drive. A 120 people strong jain community from Gujarath also had visited there that day. Since their bus couldn't go till top, they hired tempo travellers to take them to top and back. They had a truck accompanying them, carrying their food items.

You can reach Kundadri from two sides- from Sringeri road as well as Thirthahali road...take help from locals.
